«©NCSX» Embark on a light-hearted interactive adventure with the To Love Ru Trouble gang which features conversation, spot-animation, and a smidgeon of voice acting.

That's not all however.

There's a mini-game in each of the 56 chapters including a vertical shooter that's based on Magical Chase and a touch-exercise where Princess Lala's buttocks and legs are tapped with the touchpen to rid her body of little contagions. While she's being tapped, she'll make loud sighing sounds as she's relieved of the bugs that are plaguing her.

There's also a fairly challenging pseudo-rhythm game where boxes and groupings of boxes are tapped just as an expanding outline reaches the perimeter of a box or group of boxes. When playing the outline-box game, a polygonal representation of Lala can be seen exercising in the background in short red shorts.

Once you've completed a couple of chapters, you can exit back to the main menu and view Princess Lala in her Deviluke costume. Rotate her with the D-pad and focus in and out with the "B" and "X" buttons. Four other girls are also viewable and rotation-friendly.

The game is broken up into episodes. The first episode shows the kids on a bus when a storm kicks up. They're on their way to a vacation spot and the story revolves around the shenanigans that occur on the trip.

Japanese NDS games may be played on North American and European NDS handhelds. There is no region-coding on Nintendo DS game cards.

NCS Game Notes
» The original Magical Chase from 1991 was a side scrolling shooter but the To Love Ru version is an overhead-viewed vertical shooter. The witch in the game is a brunette as opposed to the blonde heroine named Ripple from the original.

Some enemies release silver coins that may be shot to turn them into gold coins which are worth more when collected. The firing scheme is user-friendly where there four NDS buttons change the witch's orientation so that she rotates in the direction of the four cardinal buttons. For example, if the witch is facing forward and you're firing with the "X" button, she'll always face upwards. When enemies attack from the right side of the screen, press the "A" button and she'll rotate so that she faces the right.

Keep your finger on the "A" button and she'll continue to shoot to the right. To change her direction of fire, press either the X, Y, or B button to shoot upwards, to the left, and to the south respectively. To shoot diagonally, hold two face buttons in the direction you wish to fire in. Power-ups may be picked up to boost the witch's firepower to a double-shot as well as a spread-shot. Despite being a mini-game in a collection of mini-games, we were pleased with the overall quality of the Magical update.

» Two other mini-games we got to play this morning before we had to meet our update deadline included a pillow throwing fight and one where thick vines are tapped with the touch pen to stop them from grabbing a hapless maiden.
