The story is paper-thin and not worth mentioning.

The actual gameplay is not so great. Most of it is quite repetitive, with little variance in how to approach most enemies or situations. This only changes noticeably in the third (and last) part of the game. Also, there are some interesting glitches which are fairly easy to proc.

Each of the game's chapters is too long, considering you must restart at the beginning of a chapter when you die. This de-incentivizes letting enemies have their way with you, and especially de-incentivizes actually getting a game over. Since that's how you get to watch the protagonist get r*ped, which is the whole appeal for this type of game, discouraging it is extremely counterproductive.

The game becomes actively frustrating at various points, perhaps because the only real reason to want to progress is so you can get to the next thing that you want to see r*pe the protagonist. After you've encountered each enemy once, it's trivial, if tedious, to clear the game at no risk whatsoever. Enemies are mindless, and level design is straightforward enough that the only way to lose is to be clueless (which you probably will be the first time) or careless.

However. Once you've finally gotten through the game and/or been r*ped once by everything, you can freely play around in the "omake" feature: if an enemy has an in-game sex animation, that animation can be played in the omake theatre, which is presented as a dungeon into which you send monsters to torment the protagonist.

This game is definitely not worth buying on its merits as a game, as those are practically nonexistent. However, the in-game sex animations are of high enough quality that I still consider the game worth buying, at least for fans of zombie/monster r*pe.

I didn't find the bad end animations to be worth the effort, but tastes may vary. Besides, most of the game isn't worth the effort—the omake is its only redeeming feature.

It's hard to praise this game enough. I "obtained" a copy, then bought it legitimately upon realizing I had fallen deeply and irrevocably in lust.

Gameplay isn't perfect. It's simple, straightforward, and occasionally repetitive, unfair, or frustrating.

Difficulty is a bit inconsistent. Most enemies aren't particularly challenging, but some of the platforming sections punish mistakes with guaranteed death.

Sex appeal is where this game blows everything else out of the water. The protagonist is exactly my type, perfect in every way—if you're a fan of cartoonishly large breasts, buttocks, and so on, though, she won't much appeal to you. (There's another character later in the game who will, but she only gets a handful of scenes.)

There are literally dozens of distinct H scenes, each with variants for every valid clothing state with which it can be unlocked. Scenes are collected either by clearing the game or being defeated by various enemies—sometimes only under certain conditions. (There are also a few which only unlock if you complete certain challenge requirements.)

The scenes are animated, fully voiced, and (for ryona fans) sexy beyond belief. Iris is subjected to violence, choking, electrocution, and death-by-r*pe at the claws, teeth, and tentacles of every kind of monster around. The closest it comes to scat is one urination scene, and the closest it comes to gore is various cuts, bruises, and bite marks.

As a game, it's merely a'ight (and quite short). As a tool of gratification, it's spectacular and more content-packed than any other game I've seen. If you like watching girls suffer (or just get r*ped), pick it up.

Note: You can turn off the ryona content (in fact, it's off by default) if you just want to see the more benign scenes.

Note 2: An English translation would be wonderful, but I doubt we're ever getting one. =( I guess that's my one complaint: I've played through it 15+ times, and I still don't fully understand the story.

Picked it up expecting a terrible little adventure platformer I'd suffer through in return for nude pics. My expectations were promptly overturned.

Seriously impressed. Wish there was a SFW version so I could publicly recommend it and/or purchase it on Steam.

Gameplay is fantastic. The designer knows what they're doing. All elements of the core gameplay (platforming and shooting) are extremely solid, so I'll just mention a few things here.

Threatening, "edge-of-your-last-breath" situations evoke panic and desperation rather than frustration. Ryona fans will be familiar with the tension between that fear and the anticipation that comes with it (no pun intended), and each aspect of gameplay plays on that tension expertly.

Better still, the game handles character death in a way I wish every game did: by showing you the game over screen, then allowing you to restart from the most recent checkpoint (which are extremely common—note that checkpoints are not save points, however).

Difficulty is excellent. I played on the hardest difficulty, which posed a tangible challenge that required quite a few retries (though many were, uh, not strictly required). I even missed a collectible on my first playthrough, which is rare given my playstyle. The other difficulty levels are present if you want a more casual experience, and they make combat more forgiving without detracting from the gameplay experience as described above.

Sex appeal I found to be mediocre. The protagonist's body proportions don't suit my tastes; fans of large breasts might like her better. Also, none of the Bad End scenes contain penetration (one of them might imply it). The ryona content should delight fellow fans of imperiled and drowning girls, however. In that aspect, the sexual content shines.

Bottom line, this is a legitimately good Metroidvania-style action platformer. Buy it just because it's that good. Enjoy the ryona/sexual content as an afterthought.
