Amazing, although a little tedious halfway
This game is absolutley amazing and if you love Phoenix Wright then this is a perfect game for you, made by the very same Shu Takumi (who also created Phoenix Wright). It starts off briliantly, and ends with a bang. There is a bit of slow down in the middle where I felt more problems were being introduced by the chapter than being solved, but once you get past minor tedium you will be glad you did.

You are a ghost with an ability and a mysterious past.
The story of this game at the beginning already hooks you to the game. You died. That's it. And now you want to solve your murder mystery. The answer? MAJOR PLOT TWIST! At least for me, the story invoked so many emotions when it ended. The writers for this game is pretty cool.

The gameplay uses the touch screen but you can still use your buttons. You gain friends that has another ability and you can time travel (kind of). If by time traveling means moving back in time 4 minutes before a certain event occurred then it's time travel. You basically try to manipulate objects in real life to get from one place to another and to change fate. When you land on a phone you can "jump" to the other side of the line when that call is happening. Quick thinking and reflects is needed especially when there is a countdown on every level.

The artwork is colorful despite this being a murder mystery. Even the characters are colorful, no really, some character is not your average human skin. They are colorful. Look at that image, they're blue!
You have your quirky characters and animals to eventually help you save the day! And solve your murder! Yay! ...

In a way this game has a hint of sci-fi especially when you know how you gain such ability in the first place but that's just for you to find out on your own. If you have a DS / 3DS, you buy this game now!

Fantastic story
The real reason to play this game is for great characters, fresh ideas, and a plot that all ties together in a really fantastic way at the end. Puzzles are fun, but not particularly challenging. Still, they make a nice little break from the flow of story. Great game!
