Okay, silliness aside, here’s some more pictures from the end of chapter three and start of chapter four.  Once you get to chapter four, the game opens up quite a bit (as you can see in the fifth picture), letting you choose which towns to visit in what order.  Each town has a mini-adventure of its own - I opted for the jungle, first.

One thing about the game is that there’s tons of cameos here.  I’ve omitted a few photos of returning characters for spoiler reasons, but safe to say at this rate it seems like if they were a moderately important side character (but not a key one - I haven’t seen, say, Henry or Angela) in a past prequel trilogy game they’ll pop up here.  Fun times!

Also, I’m really enjoying Foster tagging along.  I kind of hope the plot twist with him isn’t as blatantly obvious as it seems.

Chapter one down! Nothing that hasn’t really been covered in the pre-release media, but it was still a fun time.

My thoughts so far:

  • The game is gorgeous, much like PLvsAA.  Maybe it’s just that I played them on a 3DS XL, while I played Miracle Mask on the original 3DS, but really, everything looks amazing, especially in 3D.
  • The music is also wonderful - much better than Miracle Mask’s in my opinion.  Unfortunately I don’t have any way to record sound from my 3DS on this computer.
  • Some tough puzzles, even early on.  I wonder if they decided to bump up the difficulty for the last one.
  • The framerate seems a good bit stronger than Miracle Mask (and PLvsAA to a lesser degree).  The Puzzle Solved! animations are 60 FPS, for instance.
