I tried a demo of this. I liked it up until I had to start swapping out party members. You can only have three monsters in battle, and It's too hard to keep up the experience of more than three with the levels of the enemies. Aside from that it's a great game, though even without that problem I wouldn't pay more than $5 for it.
