Foreword

Shortly after posting a review for Waifu Love, the developers replied and updated the game. I was dissatisfied with the difficulty, UI and content. I would have updated this review sooner, but my Steam counterpart was undergoing moderation (due to a false report). Once again, I have confirmed my Patreon and Wombat Trap are allowed on Steam.

Gameplay

Click on “ghosts”, match cards and whack “stalkers” to unlock lewd CGs; Waifu Love is a collection of minigames. In the first, you must smash “stalkers” as they appear on-screen. In the second, you must click on “ghosts” to deplete a “shyness” meter. In the final minigame, you must turn-over and match face-down cards in rapid succession.

Story

There are waifus, and each of them are being stalked. It’s up to you to smash the stalkers, and smash them while you’re at it!

Visuals

I wasn’t impressed by the titlescreen, but the user-interface looks serviceable. It’s easy to hit “exit” or “restart” while playing the minigames, but there is a confirmation prompt (preventing you from losing progress) — strangely, the “yes”/”no” options appear to be cut-off. However, it’s impossible to pause the games. You can mute/unmute audio at any time via the volume icon, but there doesn’t appear to be a window the application. The level-select screen doubles as a gallery. When viewing CGs, the user-interface is hidden by default. Unfortunately, the CGs are not rendered in an aspect ratio that will fill a widescreen.

The Goods

There are ten static CGs to unlock, each with an animated variant. The artwork is high quality, and I love the painterly-style of each waifu. It’s too bad the images don’t fill the screen — they are better suited for a phone or tablet than a PC. The animations sport great jiggle physics, but there are no climaxes or progression. I found many of the animations to be awkward: the waifus often appear to be floating in mid-air!

Verdict

If you’re lewd-gaming on a budget, Waifu Love is a great buy! With ten unlockable, animated CGs and thirty mini-games there’s bang for your buck. However Waifu Love is a case of quantity versus quality. The game isn’t terribly interesting, and gameplay repetitive. I would have preferred ten minigames three-times better than thirty mediocre games. The sexual animations fall short, but the art itself is high quality. If the animation doesn’t float your boat, static-images are available in-game. Waifu Love is a mediocre game, but it’ll keep your fingers busy!
