Hakoniwa Explorer Plus is an RPG.
Hours of Game-play?
Eight or ten hours.
No, not necessary.
This article is pending review. It is either incomplete, out-of-date, or I feel the need to disclaim my shame for a something I’m not proud of.
. . . in a nutshell
I need to make some revisions.
out the shell. . .
Do you like RPGs and mildly erotic monster girls? Well then this game should be on your radar. It’s a beautiful RPG full of wonderful sprites and non-stop animation. The scenery is pretty. Really pretty. The maps themselves are full of life, and everyone and everything is visually stimulating. As an artist, this game gives me creative brain-gasms. You’ll explore bitty-towns, forests, swamps, and even the deep sea.
How you breath under the sea without so much as “magic” is anyone’s guess. I guess I’m wrong to assume you breath at all.
The enemies are great. You’ll face off against loads of cutesy (and sometimes sexy) monster girls. A lot of their animations are. . . titillating. Stimulating? I mean, you end up being smothered by thick thighs, beneath big clay-breasts and inside fleshy orifices. Need I say more? The bosses in this game are really, really saucy. Borderline nude. Very bouncy, if you know what I mean.
If you’re looking for an “erotic” experience, well this isn’t your game. There’s mildly erotic images, but if you’re looking for something pornographic, you’d best look elsewhere. Try a Sakura title.
This game is full of jokes. I would love to go off on a rant, but I feel as though that would be doing a disservice to your experience. I found myself chuckling here and there at unexpected moments. From character interactions to item descriptions, you’d have to see it to know what I mean. I guess it would suffice to say that the game has personality.
Oh, I probably haven’t said much in regards to game-play. Well, it’s an RPG. Crap, I said that already didn’t I? You have to manage your HP and items carefully. Your gear wears down, just as you do. You will need to find and purchase repair kits to keep your items in working order. When you start off, expect to micro-manage your (very small) backpack and break some items. By the end of the game, you will have the best gear and more repair kits than you know what to do with.
I found myself throwing those darn things away.
I think the story involves you saving the world or somethin’. The world is getting hotter and hotter, and it’s causing problems. Basically, global climate change. Big deal, right? But why it’s happening how you save the world are outright stupid. And it’s awesome.
But the game. Buy it full price. I didn’t, but after my experience, I would. For ten USD, it’s a great deal. I’ve played this game for about ten hours, and I haven’t even finished every dungeon. I’ve beaten the game once, and the last boss a few times. There’s plenty of collectables to find, and in-game achievements too. Again, this is a great mildly-lewd RPG that’s worth a playthrough or two.
If you grab this game, quick advice. It’s full of secrets. Secrets everywhere. Advancing means finding secret exits. Be ready for a hunt.
