Gameplay

Wander a mansion and collect items to solve puzzles. The goal of the game is to reach the final door. You’ll have to solve a number of minor puzzles along the way. These puzzles range from drag-‘n-dropping items to playing a piano — in order to pass the former, you must time your keys in addition to pressing them in the correct order. Overall, the game is straightforward, but the puzzles are not. It’s not always obvious what you’re supposed to do, and I’d suggest looking up a guide whenever you’re stuck.

Story

The story is difficult to follow, and the English leaves something to be desired. . . so take my rendition of the story with a grain of salt. Lin is a slave; she has been captured, drugged and raped after rendering her talents to her employers. Xixi finds herself inside a dank basement, armed with nothing more than a flashlight. She is on a mission to rescue Lin, who lies in a coma. Unfortunately, Lin is not alone — she’ll have to take one for the team if she wants to free Lin from her sexual prison!

Visuals

The titlescreen looks great! I loved the animated waifu, and the titlemenu nicely arranged. Audio, display, language and resolution preferences can be adjust from “Options”. Provided the adult patch is installed, CGs can be viewed from the “Album”. By clicking the camera icon, the bulk of the interface can be hidden. However, the “orgasm gauge” pokes though — once a climax has been reached, the orgasm gauge will no longer be present when hiding the UI. Overall, the English isn’t great, and reading dialogue is a pain. You’re forced to listen to the voice acting, and there is no way to “freeze” or skip individual lines of dialogue.

The Goods

The base game does not feature adult content — nor any CGs whatsoever.

YUME – adult patch [DLC]

This DLC adds ten animated sex-scenes. The dialogue that goes with them is only accessible in-game, but you’re not missing much. Each sex-scene is based on a single, animated CG with one or more interactive prompts. Some scenes include a man or a toy, and multiple stages of progression (and ultimately, climax!) Each (female) subject can be dressed (or undressed). I’m impressed by the artwork and animations! Although, I did see a few spotty animations here and there.

Verdict

Sure, I recommend this game. YUME is a mediocre sidecroller, but the adult content is pretty alright. As long as you’re not held-up on one or more puzzles, the game is somewhat entertaining. The game is visually interesting, but the gameplay is generally monotonous. My biggest complaint is the walk speed; considering how much of the game is walking, I would have appreciated a “sprint” button. The adult content is definitely worth the effort, and I’d recommend this title for the CGs alone. With a few improvements, YUME could be a great sidescroller. Full price or light sale, I’d consider picking this game up!
