Is it any good?

MYSTIC EMPORIUM is a solid time management simulation game with the kind of fast-paced gameplay that requires quick reflexes rather than careful planning. The action gets quite hectic, even in the easier of the two difficulty levels. The graphics are nice, with new upgrades and customers introduced steadily throughout story mode. The music quickly gets repetitive, but players can listen to their own music instead by tapping a button on the main menu.
