Keywords the reviewer selected :

First of all, the H elements in this game are quite satisfying, especially the pixel art. And, considering this is Pixel Factory's first offering that's pretty promising.

The gameplay is mostly very tight and the heroine's actions feel right. A lot of the mechanics make sense, such as the slightly longer than expected re-fire time on the pistol (while the heroine is shown to be competent, she presumably has little-no training with weapons and it could be implied that the re-fire time is due to this).

While the controls are good, the game becomes increasingly punishing the further you get into it. The lack of checkpoints (you will always restart from the beginning of the stage you are on) may appeal to hardcore gamers with certain tastes, but not all.

As a side note, make sure to choose "No" if you game-over to a new enemy type as this will unlock an animation for the gallery that will not be unlocked if you choose to continue.

Overall, this is a fun game with some great art and it's well worth the asking price.

This is a great game in virtually all aspects, the action is quite good; difficult yet fair and with tight controls. Comparisons to the older Castlevania games are apt, so be prepared to game over a fair amount along the way. The game does help you out if you're really stuck by giving you extra lives and uses of your powers based on the number of times you game over, so don't be too intimidated.

The H scenes provide a good amount of variation and feature a nice combination of pixel art and more traditional images. The one complaint I would have to make is that the voice acting can leave a bit to be desired, as it's the same for the vast majority of the scenes.

Overall, a must-have though.
