Gameplay

The goal of the game is to get the girl (right in the pussy!) The girl in question is a prostitute, and she costs money. Money doesn’t grow on trees — you must play a rhythm game every week to advance your “Job Exp”. Every so often, a merchant will come to purchase your wares. The amount of money you make is based on your skill (or Job Exp) as a blacksmith. In addition to paying off the girl, you must also manage your food and materials (which also costs money). As you hire the girl, you will gain “Feeling” and unlock new dialogue and sex scenes.

. . . yes, this is a game you can play one-handed!

Story

There’s this kid — we’ll call him “Smithy”. Smithy has inherited a forge, and he’s absolutely clueless how being a blacksmith entails. However, as the only blacksmith in town, Smithy finds that his monopoly on market serves him well. He has regular customers, even if is work is strictly average. Smithy has needs just like any other dude, so he hits the brothel for a good time. He meets Maya (or whatever you name her as), and two fall in love.

Except I’m pretty sure Maya just sticks around for the paycheck.

Visuals

The titlescreen looks okay, as does the interface as a whole. “Language Selection” is self-explanatory. You can adjust audio and text preferences from “Config” in-game. The English isn’t the best, but it’s generally serviceable. Despite jacking-up the text speed, clicking through dialogue was still painfully slow. I’m a fast reader, so I don’t like waiting for text to appear. There’s a lot of repeat dialogue, which makes this problem even painfuller.

The Goods

There are a variety of animated, interactive CGs to encounter. There is no gallery, but you can view them most in-game days (if you got the money). You can choose a number of positions, the speed of thrust, and where to plant your seed. The animation is good, but there were a few times that it seemed. . . uncanny. I rather enjoyed the strong focus on drippy bodily fluids, though watching the good stuff drippy-drip might not be for everyone.

Verdict

I do recommend this game, but wait for a mean sale. It seems to be rough around the edges, between the gameplay and graphics. However, playing Black Smith2 was still an enjoyable experience. The game moves slower than I’d like, and I became somewhat fed-up with the monotonous gameplay. I think for twenty USD, this product should be a lot more refined. Regardless, if you’re a fan of visual novels with resource management, I would suggest keeping an eye on this game from your Wishlist.
