Tinkle Bell is one of those unique independent developers who creates titles that rival if not even surpass the quality of bigger and more well known companies. They've been around for a long time and their animation style is very unique. Easily recognizable, Tinkle Bell's titles can be considered one of the best you can find in the doujin community. With that said, Rondo Duo can be considered the sum of all their development experience to date. The animation is very very well done, the H-scenes are very satisfying, the characters are well developed and the story is well done. Not to mention excellent voice acting and great soundtrack. This is a definite 5 out of 5.

The first game ponidog created, it plays as a Hana Fuda card game where the player must match up specific combination of cards to earn points. Unlike their later release of "Haro: Tale of the Western Country", Way was not translated by native English speakers. Because of that, the translation of the game is poorly done and confusing at time especially to newcomers who will be in need of the instructions and tips to the game.

However, despite the unnecessary high learning curve to the game due to the poor translation. Once you come to understand how to play the game, you'll find playing it challenging and rewarding.Those familiar with ponidog's other game would know already that the classic oil painting art style of the game is very well done. While the game is animated, it is simple and nothing special.

This is a game that is fun and awarding to play if you are willing to be deal with the poor translation as well as figuring out the mechanics of the game.

Definitely, one of the most addictive hentai games you can find on the web!!! The standard Shisen-style puzzle game is a game about training big-breasteded, well-rounded girls. 2015. 7/15 update!

Developed by ponidog, the same makers of the game Way, Haro: Tale of the Western Country is another change of the traditional h-game formula where there is actual gameplay.

That being said, the gameplay consists of solving Shisen-style puzzle while at the same time training the heroine of the game, Haro, into a sex slave. The learning curve for Shisen isn't that difficult and the ingame hints and instructions should help newcomers. While the puzzles aren't exactly hard, they can take awhile to finish depending on the "difficulty" of the puzzle.

Like the game Way, the artwork of Haro is in the same fantasy style and are very pleasing to view. In addition, the soundtrack of the game is very fitting to the art style and it doesn't get repetitive while solving the puzzles of the game.

Those familiar to the English-version of Way, would know how torturous it was to understand the translation done. That being said, Haro is many times better. While you won't call it top class translation, it is atleast understandable. The translation is riddled with unnecessary metaphors and similes that probably lessens the experience than initially intended.

Haro is a game I would highly recommend, it provides an addicting gameplay that would please people who enjoy puzzles and people who want something different from the traditional click-and-choose games.
