Anyone playing Magicians Quest: Mysterious Times?

I played it a little because it had been released in Europe in March.
Did they fix some of the map issues in the American release?

I've noticed it lags in some places. Is that what you're talking about?

Not quite, but yes it definitely lags in some places and/or when there are too many NPCs onscreen. But what I'm referring to is, that the excessive bug testing didn't seem to include the times when one of the NPCs will follow you around. Sometimes this following NPC is positioned in a place which makes it apparently indistinguishable for the game to determine whether you are accessing the NPC or a nearby "facility", like the door to the boutique or the organ in the attic(?) of the school in my case. The problem we're having here is, that some movements of your character are done automatically, like when you get too close to stairs you will automatically walk them all the way through no matter what. This combined with the general setting, that all characters at all times are objects which can not be walked through but have to be passed or pushed out of the way, creates something like an infinity loop in certain tight spots which ignores all your key-pushing since your character is in the process of doing something automatically, which has no chance of succeeding because the "obstacle" is not considered. The only solution in those cases is to turn off the power, and just like in Animal Crossing, this is considered cheating.

What kind of a game is it? In your opinions, that is.

I'm playing, I'm not quite sure if I like it yet. Once I get more spells and stuff, I'm sure it'll be fun. Jurys still out for me.
