The graphics are really pretty, but quite crowded. You have to collect certain items with your wisp while avoiding all bullets, which can come in many shapes and some different colors. There's a lot happening on the screen at once, but they did a very good job of making everything so clean that even with a busy screen, it's not that hard to do what you need to do with a little work and patience. I think this game gets credit for using the most maximum potential of the DS screen that I have ever seen!
The background music is hauntingly beautiful, which fits very well with the game since a lot of your monsters are ghosts and ghouls. You also get foreground music that tells you some of what is happening on your board. As I said before, there is a lot going on so the music can help you differentiate some of it. There is also a bonus CD that comes with launch copies of the game. If you can find this CD, it's worth it. There are 38 tracks on it from the game. Once again, I recommend trying to find this CD as well as the game!
