It's a game much like the Dragon Quest games, simple RPG mechanics and a very quirky and unique world and design unlike any other RPG.

Generic Dragon Quest gameplay, quirky characters in a zany world filled with parodies galore. It's weird, it's supposed to be weird, and it doesn't care if you have a problem with that. It's like a B movie from the 60s if it was a JRPG.

it's a run of the mill jRPG (aka the only kind of jRPG), but with more weird things (like one of the enemies being "New Age Retro Hippie")

A quirky JRPG about children saving the world from aliens with entertaining dialogue.
