Gameplay

Mash “attack” and enjoy the show. As characters take damage, their clothes rapidly disappear (a staple for the lewd fighting game genre.) At your disposal are a handful of basic attacks and “hentai” attacks (or in other words, rape attacks.) In “Versus mode”, you may choose any combination of two CPU or Players for a single battle. In “Story Mode”, you can enjoy a few lines of incoherent dialogue and a few battles (that are somehow related to the plot.) “Training” mode allows you to practice your moves, though it’s better used as a way to learn the controls (seeing how they are improperly listed in the tutorial screens). Combat can be won by spamming the same attack over and over again, indicating a clear lack of testing and polish.

Just spam “F” to fuck your way to victory!

Story

There there is a “Story Mode”, and there is dialogue, I was completely, utterly lost. There are a few characters, they may or may not talk trash to each other, and which ever character you choose eventually beats them all and the “story” is over before you know it. As Hentai Fighter employs widely used assets (in the “memeware” genre), what I see is a missed opportunity for memey backstories to tie-in to their appearances in other games.

Visuals

The titlescreen is appealing, though I would have loved to have seen some form of fancy animated background. . . and for the word “Trainning” to be correctly spelled. From “Options”, you may adjust basic audio preferences; there definitely should have been a means to adjust display or graphical settings. The in-game visuals are serviceable for the most part, though there are a lot of premade assets to be seen (which don’t always mesh together, such as the equippable “weapons”.)

Developers, can we have the option to remap our keys?

The Goods

The nudity is about as good as any memeware: the goodies are painted-on and the animations are riddled with clipping and misalignment. There were one too many times where characters’ hands and feet sunk through the floor, or when they thrusted their weaponized dildos into the air. There are a handful of sexual animations to see, but as they are considered “fighting” moves they are very brief. Many attacks function as grapples, forcing the other player into a rape animation that deals damage. It

Verdict

Stay far, far away from this game, and come back when (A) it receives lots of updates and/or an enormous sale. I’m insulted by the price tag of Hentai Fighter; the developers think this is a thirty-dollar game, when functions at best as a bad memeware with about an hour of content. I get that this game is “Early Access”. But it’s “Early Access” at a premium price point, and as such I feel obligated to consider this game as a premium title. If this game recieves at least some of the updates promised in the future, then Hentai Fighter could be a decent (though expensive) fighting game. If you trust the developers, then by all means pick the game and leave your input. Otherwise, keep an eye on development whenever it goes on sale.
