I bought this on a whim because the pictures looked pretty, and I ended up liking it more than I had expected. It's a bittersweet story about first love and not having the courage to make the first step, told from two different viewpoints. Being a non-native speaker, I can't judge the writing style very well, but it was easy enough to read, with a nice introspective flow. There are both black-and-white pictures, on the bottom of written pages, and very nice, full-page coloured ones, that I loved.

These are very high quality videos, some with full voice acting that sounds professionally done (I do not speak Japanese so I don't know for sure, but it sounds professional). The subtitles are translated well, and the quality of the animation is great. You also get a variety of scenes.

The scenarios of the scenes range from mostly nonexistant to a full short story, but they're all written well. Those who want their scenes to be purely erotic would be very disappointed as all victims are clothed, but I don't mind that at all. I highly recommend!

For 500 Yen, this game is an absolute steal! I was itching for an arcade racer which is pretty rare now.

I'd say this is worth more than the price it's being sold. The graphics may be dated but the level of detail and thought that's been put into the game is amazing for an indie title. I have nothing but praise for the game. It's just that good for me.

The car selection alone is pretty huge. There are exterior and performance customization. The track selection is pretty good too with well known mountain passes.

There are rivals in the arcade mode much like that famous arcade game this is based on, a time attack mode, AND MULTIPLAYER. It's only through LAN but me and my friend played through some tunneling program and it was a BLAST. Not to mention there is so much to unlock to keep you busy for a while.

I especially love how the developer will try and answer you even if their native language isn't English.

I cannot wait to see more of what this developer comes up in the future!

Pickup!Short, but fun & unique puzzle game

Move the various "elements" into a beaker to create a mixture preparation. A fun puzzle game.
GamePuzzleEXE
  • Release: Dec/06/2010

GS:B is a puzzle game that uses a very fascinating mechanic, the power of chemistry. You handle various elements spewing out of taps, each with their own physics, and you draw to make chutes to lead the particles, making boxes to mix two types and producing new chemical compounds, and filling every beakers with a specific color; it's all self-explanatory.

Part of the challenge is that you have to combine colors in a certain order, using elements sparingly, be wary of unwanted particles, and you should keep in mind the way you're going to draw, as elements you would put in a reserve might get in the way later. Also worth noting that you can use a bigger brush, and pull out a stick that moves the particles a bit, so to speed up the process.

It felt like I was a scientist, connecting all the beakers and making concoctions, it was a really unique and fun experience.

However, since there's no time limit, there's a lack of challenge sometimes, and there wasn't much variety in the hazards and tools; there were only portals and the red glass. Puzzle games are at their best when they use their limited assets in inventive ways, and when the gameplay gets frantic.

There's only 25 levels, which are solved way too fast. I was hoping that they were just some lengthy tutorials and that the real game would start, and then, it ended after about 1h30, it felt like it was a prototype for a much bigger product.

Despite that, the game does have good level design to stay fresh, such as shoving yellows through tight pipes and up empty pockets to separate them from the reds, and the way the elements are laid out has you take caution in your playstyle.

Regardless of the few issues I have, this game is in such of a good standing that I'd be looking forward its sequel. Genius Scientist: Bioruru is a very interesting game, worth trying by anyone who look for new subgenres of puzzle games.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

This set of BGs is not only amazingly crafted by Minikle, it also focuses on two very simple, yet often missing from visual novel resources, themes.
The streets are made of your average japanese streets and alleys, with day and night variations, all in high quality.
The town is made of a restaurant, a shopping district and some building facades. They all fit perfectly in your game since their design is spot-on.

The amount of tunes in this collection is amazing, we're talking about a hundred songs (divide the price by 100 to see how much each songs will set you back), but it's mostly in a technoish style that some people might like. Some, like me, are not even much into this music genre but it doesn't change the fact that STUDIOGANASiS did an amazing job and that collection requires your attention, that is if your game is set in the future or needs a techno soundtrack.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

It's really hard to write a 400 words review of a sound effect bundle, but since Asagiiro did an amazing work, that's the least one can do.
You will find 31 sounds in WAV lossless format for : Emails, error messages, school bell, beeps, notifications, rain (3 minutes !), dark piano chord, static and noise. The quality is really good and might be usefull for anyone making a visual novel. I highly recommend this sound pack, especially at such a price !

Keywords the reviewer selected :

This pack contains high quality 1920x1080 and 800x600 pictures of a school, but it looks more like a college, or a university since colors are not over saturated. Perfect for an adult-themed visual novel.
You will find the usual hallways, teacher's lounge, classroom and roof with many variations (day, morning and night). It really is a well made bundle of school-themed images that every visual novel should have.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

A lot of visual novels take place at school, well look no further if you need high quality backgrounds to create your game ! It has beautiful artworks of a school entrance, hallways, classroom, teacher's lounge, etc.
Colors are very bright and saturated, as if it were a secondary school, not a university which is a big plus. 1920x1080 is a perfect resolution if you need to make some small changes while ready-to-use 800x600 files are already included.
