Gameplay (1/5★)

Collect items and avoid getting caught! In a nutshell, the goal of the game is to collect one or more keys (or items analogous to keys). Sometimes, you’ll have to look for clues or secret codes. Roaming every room and corridor are zombies and monsters. They’re always on to you, so you’ll have to do some fancy footwork to avoid battle. It’s important to avoid conflict whenever possible (and it’s better to restart than waste precious inventory). Enemies may attempt to rape you during combat. Since zombie-rape deals considerably less damage than standard attacks, you’d best hope you get raped!

Story (2/5★)

Alisa hasn’t heard from her beloved aunt Dorothy for days — she decides to pay her a visit. When she arrives at Rustsone city, she finds out that it’s infested. . . with zombies! They swarm her ride out, leaving her to fend for herself in the fallen city. Lucky for her, they’re not interested in her brains. Rather, they’re interested in getting brained!

That’s. . . that’s a sexual innuendo right?

Visuals (2/5★)

The titlescreen is thematically appropriate, but it’s boring. From “Options”, you may adjust audio, display and gameplay preferences. It’s clear premade assets were mashed together; the resolution and color palate of sprites vary. It’s somewhat jarring transitioning between exterior and interior environments.

The Goods (2/5★)

During combat, enemies have a chance to rape the player. A short animation will play, and you’ll take light damage. If you die, you’ll enjoy a full-screen animation (but it’s pretty much a two-second loop). There are no variations or climaxes, and there does not appear to be a gallery to enjoy sex-scenes. . . “on your own terms”. Barring the game-over screen, sexual animations don’t play long enough for you to uh, “play one-handed”. The animation and artwork are decent, but they are strictly tied to losing the game. What’s the point of having sex-scenes if they’re only relegated to dying?

Verdict (2/5★)

I’ve had enough of this game. It’s boring and frustrating. You’re expected to save every thirty-seconds. Whenever you interact with a object, the enemies will continue to move (while you’re stuck reading text). They’ll dogpile you, forcing you to fight through them. If you didn’t gather an essential item, you’re probably better-off reloading. It sucks. I felt like a headless chicken as I scampered about the world, searching for whatever I’m supposed to do. The combat is repetitive and sexual content severely lacking. I couldn’t figure out how to beat the game — I don’t know if I missed some obscure secret, or if I managed to break the story. In any case, I think I’ll sleep easier by absolving myself from any obligation to play this game again.
