Yokai’s Secret is another H-puzzle game, but (to my knowledge) one of a kind.
No. Woot! Woot!

. . . in a nutshell
I need to make some revisions.
out the shell. . .
Solving the puzzles in this game relies on your perception on color.
If you can’t see color, well I guess your (bleep!) out of luck.
Anyways, you have one or more rows with colored bricks in them. On the side, you have a fistful of other-colored bricks. The goal is to set them into the rows into the intended gradient. . . I’m not sure how to explain. Have you ever seen those paint-strips at your local hardware store, which show-off the shades of colors you can paint your home? Well, this game would be like cutting them up, and reassembling them within a goal-time. There is a string of stages, and after beating each one five times, you unlock a (very lewd), animated image.
Believe it or not, this game has a story. . . but I didn’t see all of it and you can’t reset the game (without screwing around the system files or reinstalling). Bummer.
Anyways, the game takes place in a land inhabited by humans and Yokai, which I presume to be friendly spirits. They lived side-by-side until one day, they didn’t. They “rioted”, and as they did the world as we know it lost all color. The reason why is unknown, but it is your job (the player) to find out!
As it turns out, the Yokai rely on human happiness. How they rely on it is anyone’s guess, but I assume that they need human happiness to stay joyful and perhaps alive. For one reason or another, the world has become progressively unhappier, which has now been compounded by the rebellion of the Yokai.
The visuals to this game are awesome! The menu and interface look clean and refined, and all of the little animations are flashy. On the menu, if you click-about you can make it ripple, like water. That’s cool. Loading screens show a set of doors open and close, as if a stage was being prepared in real-life.
I’m. . . easily impressed sometimes.
Now, the lewd images are pretty well-done. Skillfully drawn and reasonably well animated, there isn’t much to dislike (as long as you like animated 2D art). From what I have seen, there isn’t anything super saucy, but it’s saucy enough.
This is an adult puzzle game with great artwork, and makes an honest attempt to stand-out from the rest (and spoiler alert. . . it does). I would recommend picking it up for the content it provides, and a change of pace if you want something new.
