Despre acest joc

Five years ago, a witch's curse beneath the red moon turned Chante into a fairy. Now she and her sister Elise search for a way to transform her back into a human, and in their travels they come across a particular town, which is home to a number of nearby ruins, as well as a peculiar shopkeeper named Aira, and a strange, mercurial fortune-teller who calls herself Elma. Could this place hold the key to returning Chante to normal? Or will it lead to more answers than our two sisters ever wanted to know?...

While rather charming, it's immense lack of any sort of depth or actually good controls makes this forgettable.
I'd love if the dodge button could be mapped on a different key, its use is extremely unintuitive and clunky.
Magic would've been a lot better if it wasn't completely random and you had no way of planning what you'll use since it always depends on enemy drops (which could've been stored somehow, for a better system)
Camera is absurdly bad, locking on gives headaches and often you can't see flying enemies due to weird angles.
Bees are far too annoying for their own good.
There's a huge lack of sense of progress: you can equip some items to boost stats and that's it.
I wanted to like this but the cons outweight any sort of pro it might have.

Chantelise: The Tale of Two Sisters is a game created by EasyGameStation and released in 2006.
It's a hack-and-slash, RPG game, about two sisters, Chante and Elise, or the fairy and the swordmaiden.
It combines and adorable style, with a horrible way to play the game. I especially love its story, as it follows the trials and events the two main protagonists need to face. It gives such an RPG-Anime-esque feeling that it makes me want it to become an anime. It's story rich, and has many amazing points.
Although some cons are present as well. The game's controls are pretty hard to use, considering, that my controller broke a while back, and playing this with a keyboard doesn't seem to bring back that much enjoyment, at least for me.
I have to mention, this game is RIDICULOSLY HARD. There's no possible way of changing the difficulty, or modify it in any way. The game has a pretty annyoying bug as well at the start og the game, making it impossible to progress. It took me 4 new saves to actually get started in the first chapter.
If you want to play Dark Souls, but you're like me, and you're a really low budget student, and you like cute thigns more, I recommend this game for you. 8 Euros for this game is actually not enough, but I'm glad, that I got it at a low price anyway.
I need to mention, that I'm a sucker for these kind of games. I mean anime girls and swords combined make an amazing game, for me. (I'm a weeaboo, I know, damn it).
Never did I feel so weak in my life. Especially after the first damn chapter.
meh.

So a lot of people are saying this is Dark Souls: Waifu edition, I'm here to say, IT IS! Dodging is essential in some parts and the game is kind of difficult (don't let the first boss discourage you). Magic is also necessary for the game so you have to learn to not just depend on brute strength. you have to save tons of money to get new items and one wrong move can end it so fast.

If I can be honest, don't buy the game full price, I don't think it's worth that price, and it does go on sale from time to time so just keep an eye out.

I'm just waiting to meet the little girl from Recettear and just lose my sh!t like I did in Recettear (which I also HIGHLY recommend).

BTW can someone tell me if Recettear came before or after this game...I'm just not sure.

A short and difficult dungeon romper, with no inbuilt character progression. Rather, all character progression comes from finding and buying equipment in the world. This means if you're having trouble, you're grinding money instead of experience. I didn't have to grind much except at the beginning, before I got better at reading the bosses and their patterns. Once I got the game's skillset down, I had to grind very very little, and was beating the game simply with the things I found, while using the money I collected to buy HP boosts. Protip: Only buy HP boosts, that's the only thing you need to buy.

The story is cute and whimsical, and actually pretty interesting. The gameplay is simplistic, and I would compare it to a very simple Legend of Zelda. A single attack combo, and various combos of magic spells that can be cast based on magic stones you pick up. While you can't choose the order in which you use stones directly, there's so many stones around that it's very easy to simply collect stones in the order of the spell you want to cast.

The game is long enough to hold your interest and short enough to not wear out its welcome. The music is passable, the characters are expressive in txt and voice, and the overall presentation of the game is decent enough. Reccetear is better, but Chantelise manages to hold its own.

A soft recommendation for people who enjoy the art style and can handle a somewhat difficult (until you learn the controls and spell combos) game.

It was one of the most beautiful, story rich, deep, emotional AND HARD games I've ever played in all my life. Not debunking other games, but this IS one of the games that really made me get into THAT FEEL that you can't just explain through words; even though the story is not large like most JRPGS. That mix of nostalgia and challenge combined with a good plot and well developed characters make you feel like you're sincerely part of the scenario. I'm really thankful for playing such a masterpiece.

Pros
- Really challenging and fun game
- The plot is so nice that will make you stuck to the game until the very last end
- Interesting and unique spell system
- The characters are well developed
- Wide space for strategizing when going through stages
- The artwork and the soundtracks are captivating
- Elise is such a cutie

Cons
- Really punishing game (not meant for casuals)
- The plot can make you cry like a little sh*t
- The bosses are unkillable and Archdevil is such a fata** motherfu**er that will make you throw your monitor in the toilet (GOD I HATE THAT GUY SO MUCH)
And the only real problem about the game:
- No sequel

Overall the game is extremely good but it will make you addict to it and then you'll realize that it doesn't have a sequel and you'll cry the fuc* outta it.

11/10 would play it again. Thank you so much for it, EasyGameStation

This game was released in 2006 by EasyGameStation at the Comiket in Japan. The same group that made Recettear An Item Shop's Tale. It was translated and brought to Steam by Carpe Fulgur in 2011.

In this game you play a little anime girl with her fairy sidekick sister. You adventure through dungeons, defeating enemies with sword and magic attacks. Of course this reminds you of Zelda and it plays a bit like one. It focuses much more on combat though, akin to a Ys-type of game. The game features a blend of 2D sprites in a 3D world, which works surprisingly well. I had some issues with aiming in the beginning, but that worked itself out after a while.

The magic system is the central part of the gameplay. You use different colored gems to cast fire, water, wind and earth spells. These gems are used in the order you pick them up from the ground, but when you hold the cast button longer you use up to three gems at once. This way various different colored gems can be combined and produce different spells. This make for quite the deep system and keeps the combat interesting. ♥♥♥♥ earth though. Those gems are worthless.

There are no levels, so you only improve through your items. This makes the game faster and removes the grind you have in typical JRPGs. Upon death a Game Over screen pops up, but you just respawn at the town, which makes dying forgiving. That is needed though, because you will die a lot.

I actually had a lot of fun with the story, especially the characters. I don't know if it is thanks to the translation or source, but there are some really funny lines in there. I recommend this game, if you like some oldschool dungeoning.

I kill monsters by throwing my older fairy cursed sister attached to my fishing pole using her as bait 10/10 would abuse my sister again.

I've been playing it, the controls could be a lot better but it fortunately has a gamepad config and I think it's great so far! Characters are really enjoyable and cute, the gameplay is challenging, story is entertaining. Honestly I'm a big dope for cute things and rpg games, it reminds me of the orcarina of time but with 2d characters in a 3d environment. I hope I helped! DANK

I have to say, I've been playing this and I keep coming back for more. A review below me says "it's aged a little" so what? Does that mean story and gameplay isnt fun anymore? Seriously I grow to love the characters, gameplay, and story more and more every min. I dub this an instant classic for me. The developers other games are also very fun and enjoyable as well. Please support this game. Like i said, the only flaw is the controls, but really get a gamepad its well worth it for other games as well. It's like what, 10 bucks out your pocket for something useful for many other games, don't over look this incredibly fun and enjoyable game, it is well worth 10 dollars.

My control scheme is (xbox controller) a to jump, right trigger to attack, x to target, left trigger for magic and of course the joysticks are camera and movement. DOUBLE DDANK

I got up to the final boss, I'm not sure what the producers were thinking... Seems I have to 'level' a bunch to beat it from what other people are saying, but I have a lot of hours down... Hmm.. I strike this as a problem since the only way to really level your character would be to buy things and hp, I believe there should have been a few different ways to upgrade the hitpoints. Getting money is a little slow also so eh, unless there is another way that I'm not seeing, but oh well I play my way. TRIPLE DDDANk cuz ye

Update - my friend has 49 hours on the game and hasn't beaten it

Reminds me a one of the Japanese action RPG from PS1. We don't see this often enough, and that's a shame.

Now, indeed this game is bit hard to control if you are not use to it, but you can map it from game folder. Go to local game folder, open Steam\Steamapps\common\Chantelise and you can configure the control from there.

I used this mapping- ←→↑↓for movement, A for attack, S for Jump, D for dash, F for lock-on, left Shift and space for camera angle. Trust me, this works like charm.

Now on to the game. I loved it. I beat it, and I still play it from time to time. Stroyline isn't much deep and straight forward, but it's charming and easy to play. English translation is bit cheesy though- I played it on Japanese because... I am. It's almost like a mixture of Xenogears, Mario, and Zelda. Fun beat'em up, less puzzle.
Only downside that I can think about is that the dungeon is very simple and only one-way direction. All you have to do is to defeat all enemies and unlock the gate, rinse and repeat. The boss battle is more fun. You have to figureout the pattern of the movement, and find the weakpoint. This part tends to be more like Zelda.
You will also unlock few more things, like having magic on your sword. Charge attack will release the magic with several different ability, and I thought that was fun.

Anyway, I would recommend this game, especially if you like doujin games. You won't be dissappointed.

Chantelise is an overlooked game by EasyGameStation. It was released in Japan 2006 and was localized in 2011, with the more popular game, Recettear: An Item shop Tale, by the translation company, Crape Fulgur.

In a nutshell: the game is an action RPG with some magic thrown into the mix. There are times where the game can be a little unforgiving. Stay calm, reflect on what happened, and try again.

Controls: Simple. Attack, jump, dash(Attack + jump), lock-on, and magic. The longer you hold down the back button, the more gems you use. Everything is explained in the tutorial. I recommend using a controller. If you don't have one, don't worry, the game has full kayboard controls. Though you might have a slightly harder time getting use to the controls. The config allows you to map your own buttons. If you really want to, you can play with a steering wheel.

Plot: It's a witch hunt. Everything is explained in the introduction.

Review: It's a cute anime RPG with an enjoyable story. The artwork throughout the game is wonderful. If you've played Recettear, you'll recognise quite a number of textured used.

The game may be a bit difficult to get the hang of. You've got a small health bar and the enemies hit hard. For some, the 2D sprites in a 3D environment may seem confusing to judge hitboxes. You'll spend quite some time getting use to the controls and enemy movements. The magic system works in reverse order; the last gem picked up will be the first gem consumed. Play around with magic; different magic combinations have varying results. The first gem above Chante is the main gem, and the gems around Elise feet are the support gems. It's confusing at first.

Treasure can be sold to purchase health boosts and equipment. However the prices double every purchase, directing players to get better at the game or farm for a ridiculously long time in order to farm enough pix(money) to afford the next item.

As the story unfolds, you'll have access to more magic and equipment slots. You'll also encounter tougher enemies that have more health and hit harder. Learning to avoid damage early will help along your adventure. Every boss has a unique feel to them. Well... unless you count mutual hatred. When the game gets tough, and you feel like an area is far too difficult to handle currently, take a breather, and take it slow. Going in wth a clear mind helps with observing your opponents movements. There is one hidden treasure in each room / area of the dungeon. Something to reward explorers.

Lets wrap this up: The game is challenging and you need to get good. If you're someone who gets easily frustrated at failure then this game may not be for you.

Tips:
  1. Save often.
  2. Time Attack DOES NOT progress the stroy. It is a good way to practice.
  3. Observe your opponents. Avoiding damage is a good thing.
  4. Learn from your mistakes, and gear up accordingly.
  5. Use magic to help clear areas or deal with tough enemies. Super Armour reduces damage and prevents damage knockback.
  6. Hidden Treasure may help along your travels. Try asking the monk in town.
Try not to spoil the game by looking at a guide unless you really get stuck.

As for why I have an absurdly high playtime on record: I have my reasons.

Really fun game. I was recently gifted this and Recettear, and when I'm done crying because I never get further than the third week in Recettear I come play this. Similar art styles, similar fun.

That and I pretend I'm an adventurer working for Recette.

Give the demo a go, it's not for everyone, but being my first games of this type I would be lying to say I haven't had a lot of fun.
