Madoka Magica TPS Gives Sayaka & Sakura Baseball Bats Instead Of Guns

There’s a new "TPS" game with the Puella Magi Madoka Magica girls. TPS is in quotes because Puella Magi Madoka Magica TPS featuring Sayaka Miki & Sakura Kyoko is far from your typical third person shooter since Sayaka starts without any magical powers.


In stage one you play as Sayaka before she has her Puella Magi powers, so she walks through dungeons attacking monsters with a bat. Sayaka has her magical abilities in stage two and is armed with a saber, one of her early weapons. Later on, the game puts you in control of Sakura who has a staff. Players can use magic spells by tapping the Soul Gem icon on the screen, but after each use the gem gets dirty. If the Soul Gem is covered in dirt you won’t be able to use magic.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica TPS featuring Sayaka Miki & Sakura Kyoko has three difficulty levels: easy, medium, and hard plus a gallery where you can unlock anime scenes depending on your clear time. Puella Magi Madoka Magica TPS featuring Sayaka Miki & Sakura Kyoko is available now on Yahoo’s marketplace for Android devices 2.2 and up. The game costs 630 yen ($8).

    I wonder if those characters are animated as in TokiTowa, or if they’re just really nicely cel-shaded 3D-models. Can’t quite tell from the screenshots, but mixing the two up wouldn’t be beyond Madoka and it’s artistically… unique, shall we say, approach.

  • They are kinda like TokiTowa, but nowhere near as nicely animated. They are more like what you see in Pokémon Black and White. A set of manipulated pictures.

    BTW, I still think this series is the best on Android. I have yet to play games on the platform I enjoy as much as these.

  • By the way, it’s Miki Sayaka & Sakura Kyouko (note name order). Miki and Sakura are used as given names (for some reason, like all the other characters in Madoka), while Sayaka and Kyouko are their given names.

    • Mr_SP

       Ah, you said “Given names” twice. Miki and Sakura are family names, Sayaka and Kyouko are given names.

  • Hmm. There is a “MADOKAMAGICA TPS AKEMI HOMURA” on the Google Play store in english. I guess this ones different because it features the other two characters?

    • Doctor Nebula

      It only has Homura. $7.64 is pretty steep for it though considering you only play as her meaning to buy Kyoko’s would be about $18 for both.
