It's like that one eyed kitty at Petsmart, not for everyone, but looking for just the right person to love it.
You play as Rorona a cute and slightly airheaded apprentice alchemist who must save her shop from closing. You must complete assignments given every three months over a three year period. If you don't it is game over. If you can, you get one of four main story endings. If you gain friendship points with other character you can get character ending as well.
Everything takes time in Rorona from gathering ingredients, to fighting and to creating items with alchemy. This may seem like a hinderance at first, but one just needs to think a little strategically and really you are given plenty of time to finish each mission I do not understand that complaint. I left several to last minute and still got almost maximum stars.
If it is not for you fine I can understand, but there are people out there who like it and enjoy the gameplay and story. Rent it and give it a shot, you can beat it in a weekend and see if you like it.
