Two captives of a sorcerer. Team up? Or violate her?

A fun little rpg, what really makes this, at least for me is the heroine. While she is technically a damsel in distress, she definitely isn't helpless. If you team up she helps you in fights and has some fun dialogue. Also loved the voice actress, did a great job. What also sold me on this was how there are simple but impactful choices you make (though there are only a couple), and how the heroine reacts.

I did like the combat animations, they were somewhat fun. However the game can get a little repetitive and the dungeon mechanic I was indifferent about.
Also what can be frustrating is the randomness to combat. You pick one of 4 covered cards/boxes, which are randomized 0-3. If you score higher, opponent will take damage. If you tie, no damage, and if you are lower you will take damage. The annoying part is how random it is. You can destroy an enemy in a couple of turns, or get destroyed despite having x3 the health because of bad picks.
Note that you'll very likely fail the first few times through, but you can then take exp you earned and upgrade the main character with either more damage or more HP for the next run.

Overall I really did like this game; loved the heroine and it kept me hooked enough to beat it multiple times (there are 2-3 different endings) even with the repetitive nature.

Tentacle Dungeon RPG

Guide Dorothy through a cave of wriggling monsters!

Keywords the reviewer selected :

A fun little RPG, fairly straightforward. You go around a cave finding items and battling tentacle monsters. I like the art style, it is somehow charming but still sexy, and the hentai is fairly good.
However there are some considerations. All the hentai occurs mid-battle, there are no defeat pictures (not really a bad thing, but good to note). The battles are extremely simple and straightforward. Almost a little too straight forward, I kind of wish they were a little more dynamic, as far as I could tell there really isn't a huge difference in starting moves you use, so perhaps it would have been nice to see them reflected in the mid-battle art. Finally this game is fairly short, however beating it leaves you in a review room where you can battle all the monsters (and view the scenes) again, which is nice.
As such I would recommend this for tentacle fans, but don't be looking for great battle mechanics.

Love Survive: Adrift In Paradise
QRoss
$14.63 / 1,620 JPY
An ecchi survival action RPG about three friends on a shipwrecked island.
X-ratedRPGEXEInc. MusicTrial
  • Release: Apr/10/2016
  • DL: 25

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Love Survive is a very casual survival game, in which you basically hunt for items to help progress your journey through the island. I do like the stamina system, in which you can build up your stamina to journey further into the island. For the hardcore survival gamer, you may not feel challenged since you can't really die from hunger etc. I greatly enjoyed the ecchi, which is unusual for me since its not my typical fare (I usually like a little more hardcore stuff).
It is fairly short, or at least felt like it. That is one of the only reason(s) to hesitate on this game (the other is if you are looking for more of a challenging game).

So overall a well done game that I greatly enjoyed with good ecchi, with the only issues being length and the difficulty (or lack thereof).

Monmusu Big Breakout!!
LIMIT CYCLE
$7.80 / 864 JPY
A comical click-to-proceed visual novel in the style of those "escape puzzle" apps.
X-ratedAdventureEXEInc. MusicTrial

Keywords the reviewer selected :

This is a relatively short game (likely the only negative, though not too bad considering the price), however it is extremely well done. The art is amazing, and the entire reason why I gambled on this one. Interestingly there is some story to the encounters, which happen in a progression (each scene change is saved though, so if you lose you can just restart from the scene). The most difficult part likely is that it can be hard to spot where to click to progress each scene (this is inconsistent; sometimes it is obvious, other times not so).
Overall extremely well done (that art!), I would highly recommend it, and it is definitely a 100% pickup if on sale!

As the creator notes, this one has a ton of hardcore events, most of which are from game-over. The scenes are pretty damn high quality, and there are also a ton of them!
As for the battle system it is simple but maintains interest. You can attack or charge up for a special, and how easy a battle is depends on if you decide to train up the heroine. The training is very simple, though experience you gain to upgrade her is determined by a dice roll. You may also spend experience to buy a few new skills to use in battle. A little warning, it is very easy to over-train her, making it almost impossible to lose a battle if you've spent enough time upgrading stats. This is only negative since the various H-CGs require you to lose a battle.
Finally it has an interesting story that has a good mix of humor and seriousness, and has a couple of endings based on how a few of the battles turn out.

Overall I was very entertained with this one. A good story with a simple yet fun battle system.

Kuran Hime's Cosplay RPG
saboten
$14.63 / 1,620 JPY
Dress up, strip down and help others with princess Kuran knows nothing (sexual) about the world!

A medium length RPG, Kuran Hime is a lot more fun than I had initially expected. There are a ton of costumes to collect, and each comes with its own scene. While not particularly long, the game has a very high replay value, since in the story you have to choose one of three paths that will affect the ending. As for the combat mechanics, it is a lot of fun, relatively easy until you fight bosses, which are moderately difficult. Interestingly each outfit also has its own stats and abilities, however if you let the durability on the outfit run out you lose the stat boosts (you can repair them though). There are no changes if you wear a different outfit in a event, each is locked for a specific uniform.

Overall this is one of the better RPGs and it doesn't eat a whole lot of time, nor come off as too short.

Princess Sacrifice -Adventure of Feena-
Cat whiskers RADIO
$14.63 / 1,620 JPY
An RPG and ADV hybrid fantasy novel * A tale of spectacular assaults * In battle, in failure, in towns... multiple events
X-ratedRPGEXEInc. MusicTrial
  • Release: Nov/09/2013

A beautifully rendered and well developed game with an interesting story (only in Japanese though, so hope you have a translating program), this game blew me away.
The first of all the art is extremely high quality in every aspect, whether in-game or during CG events. The story takes place in an dark fantasy world that is well developed and stays interesting and relevant, with some nice side exploration that keeps things fresh. The combat can be challenging to get used to, especially at the start, but not overly hard, with fair balancing as you level to keep things interesting. About the only warning I have is in the dice roll mechanic (this is shown visibly in game). Due to the fickle nature, this can be frustrating or awesome, but can be manipulated by stats (you can get a + bonus), luckily saving and reloading is fairly easy.

Overall I have loved this game, having gone new game plus around 4 times already, and thus highly recommend this RPG.

Papillon Hell ~Scourge of the Maters~
aphrodite
$12.68 / 1,404 JPY
When a plague of insects take Papillon, three butterflies who escape the carnage make a vow: to reclaim their kingdom.
X-ratedRPGEXEInc. MusicTrial
  • Release: Jun/29/2015

This game is a nice solid classic RPG style, while not being too complex in the equipment and spells. It is a fun play with interesting elements such as there being random encounters as well as roaming monsters in the dungeons. The art is good and hits all the marks as noted. There are a couple of obscure challenges: the first is that when starting the game the first few intro maps with each girl solo you are supposed to lose, and if you don't you get stuck as far as I can tell (I couldn't find an advance button or anything) and need to restart the game (F12).
You should know that after those few intro maps, there are no fail CG, the game simply goes to back to the main menu. The game is pretty short! Though this might be a good sign since I wanted more. Hopefully there will be some content updates in the relatively near future!

Overall I'd say this is a good RPG game (and a great pickup for those who like the interspecies genre), but has a rather short play through time.

Swallow!

Chase after terrified and running girls and swallow them!

Keywords the reviewer selected :

To start, I'm usually not a big fan of vore, but this circle has put out one of my favorite games so I gave it a shot and I was not disappointed in any way. The game play of this one is quite fun, in which you chase girls through a floor map and combat them. The combat has some complexity but is relatively easy to figure out since the game makes itself easy to have lots of trial and error mid-game (you can never actually get a game over). Also the game only really 'ends' when you run out of time (which passes traveling from room to room), and even then you automatically restart from the beginning (and there is a nice little gallery which keeps record of which girls you've already gotten). The tricky part is figuring out how to unlock some girls, who only appear with certain circumstances. Finally the art and CGs are well done, enough that I wasn't as bothered as I usually am with vore.

Overall this is a fun game of chase with good art and another great job by Bakery.

The Crimes of Delta ~Crazy In Love With A Shrine Maiden~

When picking this title up I thought I knew exactly what I was getting, that is some good pixel work. Well I did get that, but the mini-games in which the game is based around turned out to be a rather pleasantly interesting surprise. The essence of the mini-games remain the same between each scene, yet were so interesting that I actually had to go back to review each scene. Similarly the player gets a score based on how you did, which you can improve upon by redoing a scene and I definitely went back to try and get as high a score as I could.

This was a welcome surprise due to having a fun mini-game that is strangely addictive.
