Hoshizora no Comic Garden (星空のコミックガーデン) is a visual novel game for the Nintendo DS, published by D3 Publisher in 2008.
Airi is a university student. She enjoys her school life, but she has something else in mind. Yes, she wants to be a manga artist. Ryou, her old friend, knows it and tells her to go for it. Airi makes up her mind and starts working as an assistant to a famous manga artist. However, her parents learn about it and they are opposed to it. So Airi starts living with Ryou’s friends at Ryou’s house…
Before every comic mode you will get the option to save, it is best you do so (just in case you’re not happy with your score and want to try again).
Each Comic Mode has 3 different mini-games (some of which can include multiple rounds), and the tasks can vary between Comic Modes. Each chapter has 2 sets of Comic Modes, the second of which is usually played under the supervision of the chapter’s featured character (hence the supposition that doing well earns more points with them). Complete each set of games within the time limit.
First Game: Rough Drawing
Move your stylus over the outlined space in the center of your touch screen to uncover the image. (3 rounds)
My advice for this one, start with fast short strokes and move along the screen with that motion, make sure not to miss a part!
Second Game: Panel Outlines
Trace your stylus along the gray outline to draw the panel borders without lifting the stylus in the process. (3 rounds)
My advice for this one is to take your time. There is more than enough time for these. Just make sure you stay in the center of the grey lines.
Third Game: Sweep Away
Brush the eraser shavings off screen with your stylus. (1 round)
My advice for this is to make long strokes. Start from the top and go the bottom, short strokes are useless.
What I did for every single one of these: I made a safe file before the Comic Mode and if I didn’t get excellent for every game I would return to it and try again. That way the images you get will be the same, if you use the retry option they will change.
