This sequel to Kunoichi Ninpocho is a vast improvement over the somewhat primitive first game. Art, while still not spectacular, has improved drastically, and theres even more of it. In addition to the previous heroine, Kamikaze, her friends Katana and Saya are now fully playable, as well as a new character named Enbu. Of course, this means H for all of them as well.

The battle system sticks to the same basics.. draw cards, attack, lose and your active character gets raped, but the ability to switch characters makes things a bit more forgiving. You can keep fighting so long as Enbu isn't defeated. The problems many players had finding water in the first game are fixed as well.

The game is no longer as linear, as you can freely revisit areas, and there are many side quests to be completed. The story is excellent and has a few surprises, if you can read it.

One caveat, you should stay away from this game if loli offends you, as Enbu is openly a very young girl.

If you like the original, pick this up. If you haven't played the original, pick this up anyway. Its one of the few h-games out there that succeeds more as a game than as hentai.

Kunoichi Ninpocho
Mephisto
$9.80 / 1,080 JPY
Original card game in RPG style where pretty girls play with perverts.

Although it has aged since it was first released, Mephistos first title is still a good buy, especially if you happen to like their later work. Kunoichi Ninpocho features a rather unique battle system. If your health drops to 0, the protagonist Kamikaze will be raped and lose some stamina before rejoining the fight. If her stamina hits 0, its game over.

Although Kamikaze is initially alone, she's quickly joined by two teammates, Katana and Saya. Although these two don't have their own health bars (and thus won't get raped) they gain attack points alongside Kamikaze and have their own arsenal of useful abilities, both offensive and support, to keep Kamikaze in the game.

The dungeons are creatively designed, with enemies running around visibly. The contents of chests are randomized, so its never quite the same game twice. Kamikaze also needs to keep herself fed and hydrated as she travels. Money can be found just lying around to be spent at a wandering merchant that shows up in each stage, but frustratingly he disappears once you're done shopping.

A major flaw of the game is a lack of save points. You can only save at fixed points between stages, and only once. Dying mercilessly throws you back to your last save, and this can be disastrously frustrating when the only reason you died was a run of bad hands. In addition, water doesn't seem to show up often enough, so its very easy to die of thirst if you dawdle too long.

The artwork is somewhat low quality, but sure to impress in terms of quantity. There are over 100 variations of Kamikaze being raped, with a different one selected randomly each time, so the odds of seeing the same CG twice are rather low. A small handful of cosplay/fetish outfits found in boxes will somehow force their way onto Kamikaze the next time shes raped after you pick them up for variant scenes.

All in all, while its not up to the standards of Mephistos later games, Kunoichi Ninpocho is well worth your 10 bucks.
