Worth attention game for Dreamcast's fans (even those who are not too fond on homebrew games)
I've got to admit, that I'm not one of those people who are excited about any homebrew game on DC in physical form. Fortunately, Wind and Water Puzzle Battles is some noble exception, with presented quality and game's content.
First of all - quality of graphics and sound - finally something on decent level, comparable with good 2D "retro" indie games on PC. Even animation (usually rather poor element of many homebrew games) is made really well. Only thing which I didn't like about aesthetics is using "super deformed" (big head, small body) style for presenting various in-game characters (ugh). I like the fact that we've got there rather common, but still entertaining type of game (so one of those "match 3" games with some additional mechanics), as well as decent amount of additional game modes (including multiplayer). It's a shame though, that producer didn't decide to include additional CD with PC version of the game (which was made e.g. in case of Hermes game).
Naturally, all "physical" elements, like instruction manual, CD with game and CD case are well made and will present really nice on your shelf. Just one warning though - if you're collecting DC games from US or EU region, you will notice that "box style" of this game is not referring to any of these formats (as presented on pictures on game's page). For me it's not a big deal, but I know that some people are paying attention to this aspect.
Really nice and positively surprising title, probably one of better made homebrew games for DC as well.
Nice service and delivery. My SEGA Dreamcast is happy :)
Like the game idea!
Trying to make a friendly puzzle game with nice story!
Challenging, maybe sometimes to hard for starters! (Took me like 5 tries to beat the first battle)
Comes with nice manual! Nice funny minigames and good soundtrack!!
If puzzle is your thing, its a good game to have!
Too much story ( too much reading and can't skip) sometimes I get tired to press the skip and read the nonsense! "Common I want to play!"
Also needed a little more explenation on how the battles work (attack/defense) , wind water combos on Manual.
