My favorite adventure game, with some of the best traps I have ever played through. It's always a pleasure when trap makers not only go for comedy, but also for fun platforming. Truly shows the mastery that Lily and Marimario have for games like these.

Bosses in general are pretty awesome as well, visual-wise and attack-wise, but the final boss goes way too hard with how much of a fun and intense experience it is.

The entire game is visually and technically impressive, it really is in a different tier for a adventure/trap game.

Must play.

This is the best game I've ever played.
The traps in the first half of the game are conventional, but the traps in the second half are very imaginative and creative.It's pretty awesome,they combine animation characters and real people, and rank the top in the trap games I have played.
Bosses are also great. I think those special effects can be at the top of I wanna. Finally, the boss's skills and background music reminded me of when I first entered IW seven years ago. And I felt really great.TAT
I recommend it!

A trapventure game in the expected style of Marimario/Lily, but more expansive than the expected due to the combined effort.

Makes a huge first impression, the production is phenomenal and stays that way the whole way through.

Likewise, the bosses are amazing - very fair, great production with very stylish attacks and a good variety of attacks and styles (and, to sell it to me immediately, the first boss uses unconventional arena layout/mechanics).

Unfortunately, the platforming is where it lost me. Individually really, every save is great. The problem is for me after a while, they were all the exact same. And they weren't really traps - there were no mindgames, suspense, fakeouts or tricks. Every save was basically a pattern avoidance - here's a bunch of wacky shit thrown at you in a sequence where there's only one process each step of the way, then a couple needle jumps, rinse, repeat. Again, there's tons of super creative stuff and the unexpected characters and shenaniganry are great... its just a chore (if you don't like just learning a pattern and executing it over and over into a guaranteed death.)

Overall, still a great game, but not really what you expect and becomes very tiring to play (and, as a personal point, not what I would want from an adventure game - there was no variety, heck an entire stage was built around a gimmick that served no purpose because the only obstacles were the trap sequences again). It was still probably worth it to get to play the bosses, but it wasn't as much as I'd hoped. I would still absolutely recommend this game, especially if you enjoy pattern gameplay or really like cool bosses, but if you're looking for a zany trap game or a variety filled adventure, this really isn't either of those.

"皆さん! モンスターハンターっていうゲームご存知?"

One of the greatest games in literally years (maybe ever), Arcana of the Tarot, developed by the duo of extremely talented japanese makers: lilly and marimario, invites you in on another unforgettable journey through magically crafted but dangerous worlds of tarot cards, downright Overloaded with some of the most ridiculous and memorable traps that you'll ever see in your life. Um, each stage is represented by a different major arcana (Justice, Magician, et cetera...). The brand new torch gimmick (one of lily's stages) is very cool, although it took me a while to figure out what causes the torch to get extinguished. The game also features fantastic visuals for every stage and every boss (just by watching the intro cutscene of the game, that's how you'll know this is going to be one hell of an experience). But my personal most favorite highlight of the game has got to be the final platforming stage. Playing through this stage I thought I was gonna die since I couldn't contain my laughter for a second. I don't want to spoil anything, because it just incredible, all I'm gonna say about it is that once you make it here to this point... be prepared for anything.. and everything. Um, the final boss of the game is visually stunning as well, but it is significantly more difficult compared to the rest of the game, so as soon as you make it that far, get ready for a serious and nerve wracking challenge. Laur's Universum also fits incredibly well for this epic boss fight. Great pick, lilly!
