Finally managed to platinum the game X)
I would’ve gotten it earlier hadn’t the save corrupted on me ^^;
The last trophy between me and the platinum was to max all 5 girls’ levels.
I thought the developers would cap their levels at level 50 like some games, but they went all the way to level 99 -.-;
It’s not so bad though, basically in free mode there is a group of stages called ‘True Witch Battles’ (unlocked by defeating all variations of each boss) where you just fight the ultimate version of the bosses (skipping the floors to get to them). About three of the bosses are faster to defeat, and they give respectable amount of EXP (that the girls can level up 1-2 levels each time).
But the annoying thing is I still haven’t escaped my trophy level 13. I think I have been level 13 for a very long time now… -.-;
Some brief comments about the game:
The most powerful girl in the game is Kyoko because one of her magic attacks is so broken. The magic attack lets her create clones of herself, and the clones automatically track and attack the enemies. After you’ve leveled it up, the magic attack can pretty much clear crowds of enemies automatically with ease and it’s even highly effective against bosses (except the final one).
This magic attack btw is Rosso Fantasma, Kyoko’s special ability that she lost before the anime/movie, but is shown in the spin-off manga Different Story.
Secondly, whenever the girls level up, player gets some bonus points that can be used to raise the stats. I didn’t use them at all, and after I’ve maxed all the girls, I collected 1242 bonus points. Now this might be a bug since firstly it’s not divisible by 5 (girls), and it’s 8 points short in order to max all the girls’ stats (all girls’ stats reach 205 naturally when they’re level 99, and the stat cap is 255, so (255-205) x 5 stats x 5 girls = 1250. If it’s true that it’s a bug, then it’s kinda a killjoy (would’ve loved to make all girls’ stats 255) but oh well…
This game is technically not impressive but I admit in the end I found it quite fun.
Still, it’s time to move on… :p Thinking to move on to a PS3 game, but I almost certainly prefer portable gaming now ^^;
