Foreword


I received a free copy of this game for review purposes — thanks JXQ GOOD GAME!



Gameplay: overview (2/5★)


Click randomly flashing boxes to uncover an animated image! Each image is covered by “up to 100 squares” that “flicker randomly”. If you click on green squares, nothing happens — only red squares can be removed. Unless you’re a savant with the mouse, it’s best to focus on halves of the playing board. Squares only “flicker” momentarily, so time is of the essence.




Sexual Content: overview (1/5★)


There is no nudity or sexual content. Maybe there’s an unlisted, adult patch somewhere on Steam? JXQ GOOD GAME writes,

Website exchange penguin colony :739927074

Whatever the fuck that means. I suspect the code is used to fetch a nude patch, but I’m not that interested in boobies. There are fifteen animated CGs. The artwork is great, but the animations are jarring — if I saw anybody moving like the characters of Inflatable doll, I think I’d dial 9-1-1. Then again. . . maybe the characters of Inflatable doll are in-fact, inflatable.

And they’re losing air — every ragged breath is but another pump of life!



Story: overview (1/5★)


There is no story or consistent characters. Under “ABOUT THIS GAME” JXQ GOOD GAME writes,

A beautiful woman will always catch a boy’s eye. Where you look depends on your preferences.

I mean. . . I guess that’s true? I guess you could say, I’m an ass man — I’ll take a donkey over a “beautiful woman” any day.



Sound: overview (2/5★)


I wouldn’t exactly call the music “Catchy”, but it’s good enough. There’s only a few tracks, and they’re kind of jazzy. I didn’t like them enough to listen to them more than necessary to comment about them, so I made sure to mute the application. the sound effects are a bit annoying, but the “woman” sounds were somewhat entertaining.



Visuals: overview (2/5★)


There is no titlescreen — when you boot the application, it’s straight to the level-select screen. The user-interface is colorful and generally pleasant (although the choice of colors seemed a little unusual). From the “Settings” menu, you may adjust audio and language preferences. Unlike the last game JXQ GOOD GAME sent me, this game defaults to English (and most importantly, it stays English!) I was shocked to see no “gallery functionality”. In other words, there’s no way to revisit already-solved images (there isn’t even a “cheat” button!) Regardless of “gallery functionality”, the portrait-style CGs are not widescreen friendly.




Verdict: I feel kind of bad (1.5/5★)


Sometimes I feel bad for developers when they send me poorly-made games. I consider myself a lax reviewer — but I’m a lax reviewer with big claws. Sometimes, they send me games that I know I’m going to hate. From “hentai” shovelware to bad puzzle games, I install them with the benefit of a doubt. Since I started to writing adult games, I’ve become somewhat jaded. I don’t pass out “thumbs up” as willy-nilly as I used to. Inflatable doll was no fun, and I can’t be bothered to play any more rounds. To be fair, it’s a functional game — it’s just boring and uninventive. There’s are no unlockables or interesting gameplay mechanics. The animations are shoddy, and the lack of the bare-boobies removes what little redemption this game could have had. I don’t think JXQ GOOD GAME even tried.
