(Golden Bomber like Figurine)                                  (Reimu and the Precious Golden Ball) 

Tohou Genso Wanderer starts on a night with a golden bomber like figurine, Reimu Hakurei, Rinosuke Morichika and Rinosuke’s precious Golden Ball (a Golden Danmaku). Reimu got mesmerize and try to take Rinosuke’s Golden Ball, by the time she almost have it in the tip or her fingers the golden ball crack turned into a fireball, falls down on the floor turned into a pink ball then release an evil power (in short all hell break loose). After that, Rinosuke’s personality change and Reimu sense an evil presence in him, this makes him doubt and provoke Rinosuke which resulted with a battle between them. Reimu was defeated then get teleported somewhere else and that’s pretty much the introduction of the game.

Tohou Genso Wanderer’s gameplay is a classic roguelike-RPG that consist of random generated dungeon floors, different number of moe enemies, trap locations and some floor that have village where you can buy supplies that can help you go deep into the dungeon. The game is pretty detailed from every character's beautiful animated portrait and the amount of voice acting that they put in the game for a roguelike-RPG. The sad part of the game is when you die, you can choose to go out of the dungeon or go straight back to the first floor, you lose all your gold too but the game will let you keep your weapon together with its level and the items that you pick up along the way.

Touhou Genso Wanderer is a pretty chill game and it really works well with PS Vita. I tried playing it in PlayStation TV (PS Vita TV) to experience the feel of playing it on a home console but it doesn’t work for me. I recommend playing it on PS Vita since the game is really good for a handheld device. The price of the game is kind of expensive too for my opinion but who am I to judge. All in all the game is hilariously fun and very enjoyable, a game that can take away your frustration from the last game that makes you want to RAGE.

Final Score is 8/10…

But WHO CARES ABOUT MY OPINION. Go buy it now in PSN store and experience the game by yourself. HeHeHe!
