I decided to take the time to write a review for this action platformer because i was impressed by its high quality and the incredible amount of content it's packed with, among other aspects it's especially worth mentioning the astounding number of different enemies found in each level.

Each one of the three characters has his own set of moves as well as your choice of three different special attacks. After you've looted enough cash from your defeated enemies, you can visit the towns on the worldmap to buy items and new abilities for your character like blocking, counter, double jump and so on.

It should be pointed out that the currently available version of the game will soon receive a free update with a lot of of new levels, a new playable character (a sexy kunoichi fox), more bosses and new special moves for the 3 characters that are already playable.

In closing, this game is packed with a ton of content, the sprite graphics of its stages and characters are very polished, each one of the playable characters has a very distinct fighting style and basically for less than a dollar you get a game that normally would easily cost ten to twenty times more.

Lastly, i want to point out that this is NOT a hentai game and in reviewing it i held it up to the the same standard and level of scrutiny i would have any non hentai doujin/indie game and as i already stated it passed my examination with flying colours.

Help save SorcerLand!
This game is an action platformer that reminds me of the megaman/zero/zx games.
Each character comes with her own set of moves as well as your choice of three different special attacks. As you earn money by defeating enemies, you can visit the towns on the map and purchase items as well as new skills (such as blocking, counter, doublejump, etc).
What's interesting about this game is that at the end of every normal stage, there will be a "enemy rush" section, where you're in a small confined part of the screen and you have to kill all of the enemies before the stage gets cleared. Some of these have actually been rather challenging, and makes the game more fun in my opinion.

There are some things I would like to point out as disappointments though. For one, you can't seem to edit the screen size. The other, and perhaps more frustrating thing about this game is that the controls aren't very responsive, often causing you to get hit by enemies even though you're telling your character to jump.

All in all though, for something under a dollar, this game is great fun and should be a definite get if you like action platformers.

The collection has a variety of tracks and also includes some sound effects and short clips for transitions between scenes. The instruments mostly use the piano, the drums, and a synthesizer.

Anyone making an RPG, visual novel, or other game would find the tracks useful. They cover a range of different tempos that match different environments, time, periods, regions, and scenarios rather well.

The quality is good and maintained even after compressing and or converting to different file types.

Really professional looking backgrounds at huge bargain.

I think that I counted 13 unique images and each has 8 different renders which provides variety in lighting.

A little disappointed that all of the doors are closed because I like to use "click" functionality to open them.

Some scenes in the gym look very 3D, where others have a more traditional 2D painted look.

Overall, the value and quality are very good.

Pickup!A very touching story

"Lonely Yuri" is, as advertised, a very atmospheric love story between two girls.

Art:
The art for the characters is very Distinct and beautiful to look at, the backgrounds are rather simple stills blurred likely to put greater emphasis on the characters as they are the main driving point of the story.

Sound:
As this is a rather small game there are no voices. This oddly enough plays to this games strength as a visual novel in that the music and odd ambient sounds (rain,etc.) provide plenty of emotional substance along with the writing.

Writing/story:
In my opinion, for the length of the story, it couldn't have been written any better. It's solid & sweet dialogue times itself with the aforementioned soundtracks providing the necessary feelings required to enjoy it, There were a few spelling errors here and there possibly through the translation process but none of them were so bad that it detracted from the story.

Overall:
Again "Lonely Yuri" is a beautiful, if short, story about two girl fateful meeting and budding romance, there is of course more to
the story than that but I won't spoil it for anyone.

A highly, highly, highly recommended VN for yuri fans and perhaps romance fans in general.
I shed tears, maybe you will too?

This is the original "Pigeon Dating Sim"! It's short, but worth the price and amazingly enough it has a depth to it that you'd not think of a game about dating pigeon to have. It teases at a deeper story going on in the world.
You can't upsize the resolution, it's stuck at it's tiny resolution. However a new re-make of the game is coming out that will hopefully solve that. In the meantime the original is a good play through.

I felt compelled to write this review right after finishing this second Rosenkreuzstilette game as i was greatly impressed by the high level of care and polish that went in creating this game.
The gameplay structure of this sequel is the same as the one seen in the first game:action platform in the style of M*ga man,this of course includes the acquisition of a the power up after defeating the bosses that await at the end of each level and the possibility to play as an alternate character armed with sword and capable of wall jumps and dashes,if the right combination of buttons is pressed in the starting screen of the game.
The graphics are very well done,with gorgeous environments,cute chibi character\bosses and a good variety of enemies in each level.
The sound is excellent as well,the tracks of this game greatly add to the already impressive graphics of the levels giving each one a unique and immersive atmosphere,also the themes of the bosses do a great job in setting the mood for the epic battle that will unfold.
The game features two modes,arcade and story,the former being equal to the latter except for the fact it lacks the cutscene and dialogues through the which the game's story is narrated and all the levels feature an interesting gameplay twist,water currents,traps/enemies hidden behind walls,lasers,flammable liquid that is ignited on contact by certain enemies,ecc.
Final judgement:the awesome bosses,graphics and gameplay make this game one of the best M*ga man inspired games to be found in both eastern and western markets,also i want to to point out how this game surpasses by far the first installment,as any good sequel should,so,although i loved the first game as well and the reviews other users wrote about it are a testament to it's high level of quality,this one improves upon it immensely.
PS:i'm not from an English speaking country so my English may not be perfect.

Despite a severe lack of time,i absolutely wanted to write this review to recommend Steel Strider to all the fans of arcade action games.

In this game you control a mech and fight your way through hordes of enemies and mid level bosses until you reach a gigantic final boss of the level and defeat it.

The beauty of Steel Strider is in how every aspect of this simple premise is refined and polished to a mirror,the various environments you fight in are very inspired and it's easy to see that great care has been put into their creation, each with a mid level and a final boss.

Tthe great number of different enemies is also a testament to the quality of the game and it gives the player the impression that each one of the locations he fights in is defended by it's own unique army of mechs.

Also the bosses,as one would expect from this kind of game,are all gigantic and very original in design and the player mech will find scattered through the various battlefields seven different weapons,each with three levels of upgrade that will be added to it's starting pistol and beam sword.

I want to say that this is easily one of the top five non hentai action games of dlsite and also i wanna mention that since the aiming system of this game uses the mouse (the player mech moves and jumps via keyboard),people that don't have a gaming pad will be able to enjoy this game to the fullest.

Lastly I advise players to set the game's resolution to 1024x768 in the option menu for best graphical quality when playing.

By the way,english is not my native language,i hope this review doesn't show it too much.

I actually only needed the boy set from this series, but I knew I would eventually come up with some reason I had to have the girl's collection too. So I decided to save myself a buck and a half and bought the two sets together in this handy little bundle.

So glad that I did! The boys' models were done beautifully, but they lacked much in the way of costuming accessories. The ladies' set had no such problem! It quickly became my favorite, even just as a handy reference or for general inspiration.

Seriously, if you are at all interested in game or character design, it's not going to hurt you to pick this set up. I've learned a lot just from seeing how they put these over-sized sprites together! It's really helped me organize my own character models.

I really enjoyed this set! It had a good range of basic character builds to work from and a lot of different styles of clothes when compared to the working dude's collection of suits, suits, and more suits. (Though I will admit, they are very well drawn suits, and I will probably pick up that set too at some point.)

The lines are clean and the coloring technique happens to blend really well with my own, so it saves me a lot of time over drawing all of my supporting characters from the ground up. Even just leafing through it for inspiration has been a huge help when I'm stuck on a particular design. If you are interested in game making or character design at all, you really can't go wrong picking this up -- especially at this price!
