Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings is the sort of game that is best played when one simply needs to take a break. Its liberal utilization of brilliant hues, playful melodic tones and exceedingly enthusiastic characters make for a pleasant and light-hearted experience. Having to run around the map chasing down ingredients is actually quite endearing and the combat system is varied enough that the process doesn’t become too bland.
Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings is the kind of game that’s best played when one just wants to sit back and relax for a while. Its lack of urgency combined with its liberal use of bright colors, upbeat musical tones and exceedingly optimistic characters make for an experience that can’t help but inspire a faint smile.
Those looking for style and substance will only find the former in abundance, but there’s just enough of the latter to keep Lydie and Suelle’s adventure interesting enough to explore deeper. Just don’t expect to become too invested in any of the game’s story or characters. For a world that’s built on the notion that the sum can be greater than the whole of its parts, Atelier Lydie & Suelle never becomes more than its addictive gameplay and two-dimensional protagonists, for better or for worse.
