Foreword

I originally published a review for Duel Girl on August 23rd, 2019. I have updated that review, to reflect my thoughts on this game as of September, 2020.

Gameplay

This is a standard match-three game, though without the interesting mechanics that come standard in modern match-threes. As you connect rows of three or more, the on-screen lady will lose her clothes. After beating each stage three or four times, you will unlock her respective, nude CG.

Story

There is no story (and I’m not making one up.)

Visuals

There is not titlescreen (just the stage-select screen). The interface is serviceable, though it’s clear that budget was skimped on backgrounds. There are no user-preferences to adjust. The stage-select screen doubles as gallery. Though the user-interface cannot be hidden, it’s not much of a problem considering the stock background.

The Goods

There are ten unlockable, animated CGs. Each character has two CGs, one to represent her in-game avatar and another that is unlocked after beating her. The artwork is decent, but the animations leave something to be desired. Their bodies move like jelly, and their clothes move separately from their bodies (as if they were decals).

Verdict

Cheap as it is, I strongly disrecommend Duel Girl. I recommend this game even less than I did the first time I played it. This game pales in comparison to what is available (for the same price or cheaper) on Steam. The playtime is unacceptable, and this game is frankly a failure all around. It’s a half-baked match-three game with no interesting mechanics. Duel Girl has aged poorly.
