I'll be honest with you all, the name "Spectrobes" doesn't really match how cool this game really is. When I first heard about the original game back in 2007, I thought it was another DS puzzle-simulator for spheres. But realistically, this is a righteous franchise with a sequel that sports a lot of functionality."
