Ok, so I only played for a very short period, and I am using a 3GS.

The game starts off with some poorly translated dialogue, but you will be able to understand it anyhow. The story starts off with you talking to people around the city. The last screenshot shows what you can click to talk to someone. Screenshot 3 is a conversation. Nothing is animated while conversing, and the map screen isn't either.

Once you have finished talking to people you start the mission and it takes you to the map, which is the 3D one that was posted. First off, thats basically the entire map... No exploring, it shifts over maybe 10% more when you go left, right, up or down.

That picture you see below the sprite is not 3d, its just flat and you hover over the entire thing. The point is to collect the right color of floating orbs. A bar at the bottom says what you need, and you must avoid the other colours. Your character isn't truely animated either. It just faces whatever way you are going.

Overall, I don't care for it so far. If you like the kind of game where you need to collect one thing and avoid others it might suit your taste, but there are much more refined games out there in my opinion!
