Looks lovely and the gameplay mechanics are solid. I wasn't expecting the boss to be so challenging, and it was a pleasant surprise. That said, the MP meter could be a tad more forgiving; especially if getting hit will disable the powered up staff, throwing a pretty important MP investment out the window.
I'm absolutely in love with the animations, there are a handful of details that truly sell the game.
All in all, I'm fully hooked and expecting eagerly the full release.
