Foreword

Gameplay

. . . in a nutshell

An above-average match-three game.

out the shell. . .

If you’re familiar with “Candy Crush” or “Mirror”, you’ll know what this game is all about. There is a playing board full of colored pieces, each representing one (of five) elements. You can swap the positions of any two adjacent pieces. The goal is create (non-diagonal) rows of three or more, which will remove the pieces from the board. New pieces will “fall” to fill the empty space, allowing you to create more rows. Using this mechanic, the idea is “chain” multiple rows, making the most of each move.

You have a limited number of “moves”, which means you’ll have really consider how many rows you can create each turn. There are four stages to choose from, each one focused on a certain element (or colored piece). To complete the stage, you must collect a certain amount of the respective element. After (successfully) completing a stage, you earn “white element”, which can be used to purchase various abilities and upgrades. It also used to unlock new new levels.

Between levels, you unlock CGs.

Story

You play as yourself, and you have responded for a call for help. The four elements are no longer in harmony., and the four goddesses are the only ones keeping the world in one piece. Your journey starts in the Sanctuary of Elements, the epicenter of the problem. As you realign the elements, the goddesses offer their sexual. . . prowess.

The story is pretty vague, but it’s better than nothin’.

Visuals

The title screen beckoned me, with pretty visuals and simple “start” button. Unfortunately, sound and display settings are selected from in-game, which annoys me. A gallery can be accessed in-game, allowing you to review each image and scene. I enjoyed the user interface as a whole, though a lot of the game seemed a bit. . . blurry.

On an unrelated note, I really liked the loading screen. It has a lil’ girl tossin’ a ball up and down. She’s really cute. What I didn’t like was when she censored the adult content.

The Goods

The artwork is high quality, and so did the (animated) character portraits. There are a total of eight images/scenes to unlock. The CGs can be fullscreened, which means no pesky user interface. Male genitalia is stylistically blurry. . . or censored.

. . . expect male-on-female intercourse.

Verdict

If you like lewd connect-three games (such as Mirror), you’ll like this game. It’s got attractive jiggly ladies and plenty of unlockables. The game is pretty short, however (which is a bit of a downer).

But wait for the developer to release details about a nude patch. As it stands, there is no way to unlock the censorship.However, , there is a dumb “Trial Mode” that is displayed at the bottom right screen. This needs to go away.
