You travel the world with a witch named Miriam, and help the friends you make at each new location. It plays like a side-on running and jumping game but you use your musical abilities to solve puzzles. It sounds complex but is actually really simple, you just move your stick to the different coloured portions of the song wheel for each of the notes in an octave. As you sing the world around you responds and events to occur in the environment.
As you progress you learn not only to make music but to match the tunes you hear around you. Like a rhythm game this offers new ways to solve puzzles and move through the world. In this way you steadily gather all the pieces of the Earthsong that enables the universe to be saved.
The result is a novel game match by a lively world full of interesting people to meet: townsfolk, grandparents, lumberjacks, doctors and your reluctant, grumpy witch companion, Miriam. It all works together to build playful relationships with a surprisingly deep story. It's a game about community relationships rather than one heroic individual.
Rated for younger players in Australia. Rated General (G) for Very Mild Violence.
7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. You need some skill to move around and use the second stick to sing different notes. You also need to pay attention to what's happening to work out what to do next.
