9 / 10

Overall the graphics are cute and stylish, the experimentation range is absolutely massive, and finding all combinations will take you many, many hours. The campaign mode is solid with many levels to play on all difficulties. As for trophy hunters, the good news is there is a Platinum trophy for Alchemic Jousts. The bad news is that it’s going to be a very time consuming and challenging Platinum to achieve, so the sooner you get started and the more you practice, the more progress you’ll make towards unlocking it.

There are dozens and dozens of different elemental monsters to discover, and that’s half the joy of the game. The other half is the bright charm and personality of Alchemic Jousts. It’s not the deepest strategy game you’ll ever play, but it’s one of the most charming that you’ll see for some time to come.

I had a lot of fun with Alchemic Jousts, and I definitely recommend it to those of you looking for a fast-paced and entertaining strategy/defense release on PS4. There's a ton of units, boosts and skills to unlock, plenty of battle types to engage in and a ton of trophies to obtain, so you'll definitely spend dozens of hours playing this one.
