Hmm, it wasn't that difficult for me. Some of the gimmicks are really difficult to master on full power, but one of the things I really enjoyed about the game is that you can adjust the power of your gimmicks to a difficulty which suits you in a similar way to M&L: Superstar Saga's 'Bros.' attacks and it won't cost you too much pressure later in game to reduce their power.
Early in the game the battle system did feel quite basic, but personally for me it got better and better after getting new party members and a variety of gimmicks. The boss battles are particularly enjoyable, and some did require a strategy to win akin M&L:SS, unless you overly leveled (which you never really ever need to do) for instance, in order to defeat the final boss (I won't spoil) you pretty much need to do something about his guns, otherwise he'll just reduce the Defence and Speed of your party members until you receive a Game Over.
Out of interest, what do you think made the game feel bland at times? Aesthetically at least, the music and graphic style was good and the game had some cool plot points. Definitely, there was some M&L-like humour.
What was particularly funny, at least for me is how that quiz NPC tries so hard to catch you out, and gets angry when you beat him. At one point of the game he really doesn't want you to win, and challenges you three times. The third quiz is timed, and he expects you to answer at least ten questions correctly under thirty seconds, including some that are pretty intense like "86479 - 69472".
Well, on the Starfy Wiki I edit we're considering to redesign the site in some way, hopefully for Starfy's anniversary. Recently, someone on Romhacking.net said they were trying a translation of Densetsu no Starfy, so I sent him a message to inquire how the translation was going and if he wanted any help.
select * from [Games] where [Publisher]=N'Nintendo' and datepart([Release Date], mm)=5 and datepart([Release Date], dd)=30
And tada, you get a list of games released on that date.
That would be great and interesting to see. This also reminds me of the 'This day in history' section on wikia:Nintendo where every date it updates with an important time in Nintendo's history, such as a game's release date.
