(Note: Please don't take my whole rating on Gameplay, Graphics, and Sound too seriously because I never know how to rate those, but with lasting appeal, it's fine. I know how to rate that one easily)
This is a fun little game that takes you to a castle that is in ruins and only you (your character) can save the day and restore the castle and the kingdom. You can have up to 4 separate profiles and when you start out, and you can customize your character. Sorry if you were hoping for a guy, because that option is not available. Your character can only be a girl and you can't change her voice and whatnot. With customizing, you can choose from a selection of generally speaking 4 options per item. (For example, 4 dress types, 4 earrings, 4 hair accessories, etc.) After you choose the item, you can chose from 8 different colors for that item. It is kind of thorough, but it's not the best for customizing characters that I've seen.
Anyway, once you start playing the game you'll have to travel to 4 different kingdoms to solve that world's problems in 3 separate levels for each kingdom. Honestly with these, at first they were fun, but now they're just a little boring for me, but I am not a little kid. The kid I babysit often loves this game, but it's not one we play often. The levels themselves are great for kids, particularly younger girls, but for adults you will most likely find it way too easy and not really challenging at all, including the hardest level. The hardest of the 4 worlds (I really want to give a thorough review without any spoilers so I don't want to say which world) is actually more annoying than anything. With the number of easy things you have to do to complete 1 level in that world, it just becomes annoying in many respects because I find myself back-tracking since that's what the adventure tells you to do. (Ex. Go to the field. Now to the forest. Oh, so-and-so knows about this. Go meet them at the field. etc.) Plus, the particular voice for that kingdom's main character is just plain annoying.
This is a 2-playered game, in that 2 players can actually play the game at the same time. It's not one of those that says it's 2-playered and then it ends up the main adventure is 1 player while the mini-games are multiple. 2 people can actually play, and can even customize their own characters, but the game's set up so that Player 1 gets most of the glory and attention while Player 2 is just a kind of there. There's literally a cut-scene at the end of a level where Player 1 is talking with the people in the kingdom, while Player 2 is just standing in the background far away and looking around at nothing.
As you probably have guessed, there's no blood, gore, or any sort of thing like that. Even the main enemies that your character will have to deal with are captured butterflies, so fear shouldn't be an issue.
This is a good game, but it's not the best in the world. I recommend this for kids, in particular younger girls, (since that was who the creators were aiming for) but some adults might like this game too. Hope this helped!
