Gameplay

. . . in a nutshell

Wander a maze and collect keys.

out the shell. . .

Avoid enemies and collect keys and texts. There is no “pause” button, which I think should be a staple for platformers and lewd games alike. Every touched enemy will result in a sex scene and a lost hitpoint. It’s cool first time, but lack of interactivity and variety makes sexy-time tedious. Once you lose all of your hitpoints, you’ll be respawned at the nearest checkpoint with one hitpoint. If you lose all of your hitpoints again, you’ll be taken back to the beginning of the stage.

Back tracking gets old fast. Really fast.

Story

The protagonist woke up in a strange place — a haunted mansion. The story is told via texts which are scattered throughout the mansion. In short, some wizard guy got banished from his respective kingdom, and he made a pact with a lusty demon. The protagonist wants out, and your job is to make her escape.

Visuals

The titlemenu looked great! It was stylistically consistent, rendered with simple-colored pixel art. I would have liked to have seen some sort of animation for the title, but it’s good as-is. What’s not good are the available selections. You can adjust language preferences, but not audio or display from the titlescreen. I’ll say it again — having to mute a game via external software is BS. “Extra” functions are a gallery, allowing you to place the protagonist in your choice of enviroment and sexual scene (that you have previously encountered).

The in-game visuals look good. But the protagonist’s walk cycle looks a bit. . . off. It’s more of a dance or awkward leg pinch than a walk. I liked the way she looked, but I could understand why someone else wouldn’t — her sprite is stylized, with a long-long neck and a weak chin. She lacked animations beyond walking ‘n sexin’, and the sexin’ was monotonous after seeing the same handful of animations again ‘n again.

The Goods

This title is full of animated, lewd pixel art. If you like juicy pixel animations, you’ll like what this game has to offer.

. . . expect female on not-human sexual content.

Verdict

Wait for a strong sale. The gameplay is fun some of the time, and the animations good but I thought lacking in variety.
