TRINITY -Orchestra Side-

Music from Touhou's Seirensen is arranged into orchestral style.

The "Trinity" series is a collection of arrangements in 3 different styles: Orchestra (the one I am reviewing) Metal which is the other product on this site and Trance which was only released on the Japanese DLsite.

This album took me by surprise. When I heard the demos on their website of the orchestral arrangements I wasn't really satisfied with the effort put in. But it was that track translated as "In Minato of Spring" that was the real hook of this album. The arrangement is superb a nice blend of Piano and String parts exchanging the relaxing melody. The music also kept me interested with the introduction of a Harp part and a synthesised Trumpet. Then you have the very tranquil beat happening throughout in the background supporting each part and I thought this was really cleverly done on a production level.

The rest of the music is very good however most instrument samples used are just virtual instruments meaning the strings will sound "midi" like in a way. This didn't really disappoint me since the arrangement and ideas kept each track interesting. Other tracks include a "Pirate of the Caribbean" type of arrangement and some Chamber arrangements of your favourite Touhou themes (String music). Again the production is great but I felt the choice of virtual instruments was abit rushed in comparison to virtual synthesisers used in the Western film and television market.

When the Trinity series was brought to my attention I actually brought all the albums on the Japanese Dlsite simply because I couldn't wait for it to show up on Eng Dlsite. "Trinity Trance" is the best album out of the series however it's not available to purchase on this site. But if you want one album from Frontier Create this one will take you by surprise. It's worth picking up if your interested in music arrangements and production.

Pickup!Rouza Musou a fun little game

So, first thing.... Nothing sexy about this game, unless the outfits the characters wear do it for you. This is all about good ol' fashioned violence and making things explode in a burst of blood and squishy noises (or bleats...).

I played through the free demo of this game from the author's site, and it was good enough to convince me to sign up and buy the full version. It's a really enjoyable little game, with the ranking systems providing a bit of replayability. The download's inclusion of the MIDI and MP3 files used in the game was a nice little bonus.

If you have no particular fondness for the series the game is based on, then there's a lot of generic Flash games out there you could play that substitute load-screen advertising for cost. But for fans, it's a nice (and cute) little homage to a memorable scene. (And loads right away instead of making you sit through an ad like said advertising-based games.)

Conclusion: Play the demo, decide if twice as much gameplay and several more bosses is worth it. It's nothing fancy but what do you want for the cost equivalent of two small plastic toys from a vending machine? A better value than a lot of things at the same price.

I downloaded this game on a whim and I found that this game though it has its faults it is verrrrry addictive because you have a maximum of 3 cute but lethal maids at your disposal to shoot the everliving crap out of various enemies that are throne at you maybe they need there rooms cleaned or they haven't had a good home cooked meal I don't know but it was fun while it lasted and when I get enough money or points I will most likely download the full version for the fact that you can only pick one of the three maids due to the fact that IT'S ONLY A DEMO

Pickup!Excellent puzzle game by FoxEye!

English Ver. AQUA CUBE (Language: English)
FoxEye
$15.45 / 1,728 JPY | 160pt (10% back)
An action game where you rescue a boy or girl who has been trapped within a cube like aquarium in the water.

AQUA CUBE is quite a refreshing doujin Puzzle game taking elements from FoxEye's previous freeware game Holdover along with others like block pushing from Sokoban, and packages it into one unique game.

All of FoxEye's games have a similiar theme and derived game mechanic:

Heavy emphasis on Underwater exploration, and management of Oxygen for the player characters.

The storyline is quite simple and bare-bones, but it helps establish the setting and the game.

The game also smoothly ramps up the difficulty as you progress along.

The later levels in the game pose quite a challenge, with stuff like switches, different types of blocks, environmental hazards, etc. Going through the later levels is an exercise in finding the solutions of the puzzle, often with complications like the one who you rescue is underwater, thus placing a time limit on rescuing , changing the water level or moving the trapped character above the water.

One of the frustrations players will encounter is that the level becomes unsolvable, somtimes even early in the level.

Fortunately, a "Restart Level" option is handily available, which allows a player to restart the whole level instantaneously.

The graphics of the game, being deformed 3D models, is nothing to write home about. However, the character portraits and talking heads are very well done and lively.



Finally, the Omake (Extra Materials) Included with the game are top-notch. Despite the imperfect translation of the Developer's comments and the Omake Manga, I still very much enjoyed the Omake material. The Wallpapers and CG Gallery are nicely done as well.


All in all, I would recommend this game for the doujin gamer who enjoy simple lighthearted puzzle / adventure games.

I stumbled across the S*ngoku Rance game, and man what a find it was! Not only did it have a fun, simple battle system, I was shocked by the quality of music in the game. It's addicting, really, so I was very pleased to find some great covers by Jill's Project, which I guess are the only ones around... There are only five tracks, but I like the added vocals, and since it's cheap it's not a bad deal. My favourite track is their version of "A calmly wind." It's beautiful as it is, but adding a rock spin to it is great.

Honestly, it may not be the best album out there, but it's the only one I've come across that pays tribute to the Rance games, so get what you can find!

The art I found was good; details are very clean. The sound effects seem alright, but some of them could have been done better.

The plot is pretty bland and straightforward. The backstory page given in the beginning pretty much sums up what will happen in the entire piece. I would have found it much better if the author removed that page entirely. The characters are very two dimensional. Almost no changes occur personality wise.

There are some spelling mistakes as well, something which should be screened before giving out to the public.
All in all an alright piece. Had the plot been better, characters more dimensional, and polished a little more, I would have recommended it.

This game was amazing, both for those with and UW Fetish, and those who just want a good Action/Puzzle game. I rate this *5 Stars*. Not sure how this compares to the "Blue Port: The Summer Memories" set, but none the less it is a great game. I have yet, of course, to beat the game still. But I have gotten to the second island. It is a bit challenging, but not *too* hard. I recommend this to all, not only those with and underwater fetish.

Also, though FOX's games seem to be mainly focused on the female, as shown on the product's page, this game features a boy and a girl, for both audiences. FOX sure did put a lot of time and effort into this game so that all audiences could enjoy it. For $20, everybody should be jumping onto this game.

Thanks once again FOX, for your amazing products, and the time, effort, and I am sure, money put into this product, and your future, up coming products.

Just bought it and its gonna be a tough one to build but a little easier than the maid. Unlike the maid from the same circle this one doesn't have other options for the looks. From examining the files there no actual body to build only the clothes legs and a frame that you use to hold them together and There are less parts compared to the maid model.
Get the pepakura viewer to view the .Pdo file it helps a lot when building it.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

A game where the objective is to defeat the furry characters in a game, the reward being you get to see their panties after a win. There is no nudity.

The game plays exactly like the "Concentration" classic card game. Each card has 1, 2, or 3 dots, either green or purple. You have to match cards of the same color and number of dots, dealing "damage points" equal to the number of dots. Whichever meter you run out first gives you a different CG.

Its not bad if you have a furry or panty fetish..
