This is a strange hybrid of a digital comic (complete with requisite 3D maze segment) and a rudimentary brawler. It’s all based on some terrible looking Japanese series of movies about a girl who fights crime with a yo-yo (supposedly what Quentin Tarantino based some character in Kill Bill on) along with her 2 friends. While I wouldn’t be caught dead watching the movies, the game has a bit of charm if for no other reason than its novelty factor. How many other brawler/digital comics can you think of? The actual game mechanics prove to be diluted in both respects (only one move for fighting and very easy and limited puzzles in the digital comic sections), but together they make for an entertaining way to spend an afternoon.
This game also has the distinction of being the very last Japanese Master System game to need an English translation. As far as I know, they’re now all available in English either officially or with patches.
