Foreword

Disclaimer – As this game is not in English, I cannot provide an accurate translation of its content. I can, however try my best to describe it. As I am not the target audience, my review should be taken with a grain of salt.

Gameplay

Scour a room for secrets and clues to (ultimately) unlock the way out. You must solve a string of cryptic puzzles in the correct order, which including looking for hidden pathways or pushing a sequence of buttons. Figuring out what to do is honestly a crapshoot, and if can’t read Japanese you will get stuck at the final puzzle (which requires you to interpret a cryptic text (and Google Translate won’t be helping out you this time. I tried.)

However, I got stuck at (what I presume) to be a secret involving a set of buttons. I probably spent at least an hour trying to figure out what to do. My efforts were in vain. There was one clue I could not understand, and (if I could read Japanese) may have permitted me to complete the game. But alas, I have left my protagonist alone and trapped.

After a trip to the Community Hub, I found out how to solve the button puzzle. And just like that, the game ended. Here’s a link to the post if you too find yourself stuck at the button puzzle.

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

Story

The protagonist finds herself in her underwear (or naked if you have the DLC), and she hasn’t a clue what happened to her clothes. Making matters worse, she’s also trapped in a strange room (and the door’s locked). It goes without saying she wants to go home.

That’s as much of a story I was able to interpret/translate.

Visuals

The titlescreen looks promising. You can adjust audio and gameplay preferences from (what I presume to be) the “Options” menu. Most of the sprites (if not all) are generic RPG-Maker sprites. The artwork is alright, but there’s only one portrait for the character (which means no CGs). I even poked-about the game-files in search of more content. My searches were fruitless.

The Goods

If you get the DLC, you’ll get to stair at boobies instead of bras, and mosaics instead of panties. Woo. . .

Verdict

I don’t recommend this game one bit! Again, I don’t speak Japanese, so I have a poor interpretation of the game. However, from what I’ve seen, I’m less-than-impressed by the content this title has to offer. I doubt the replay-value, and if you’re looking for hentai (as the game’s name suggests), this game does not have you covered. I’d stay away HENTAI SEEK regardless of spoken language.
