I was sold by the trial samples in the description and I have to say that these are really well composed! For those who are curious, here are track types you can get from this piece:

1 Title Song
1 Opening Song
2 Church Themes
2 Character Themes (for Heroines)
1 Elegy Song
4 Town Themes

The title song fits a lot and reminds me of le olde JRPG songs which is a plus! The opening song reminds me of those prologue/intro songs you hear in games before the adventure starts. It can also pass as an ending song or even a drama climax song. It's versatile enough.

The Character themes are the best songs out of this pack hands down. My only gripe is the Church 1 theme had really "meh" choir samples. But the 2nd Church Song is great and reminds me of DQ dungeon boss songs.

The Town themes are great and reminds me of Dragon Quest and Gust music on some areas. Town 3 is probably my favorite out of the set. Town 4 is a snowy village type of song, just stating that if you are looking for one.

Overall, aside from my gripes with Church 1 track, I recommend this piece.

The materials presented in this pack are great references for someone like me. Someone who always wanted to create a Venetian-like setting. This also serves as a great practice material for creating dot/pixel art. It also helps hone your lineart and coloring works for doujin games.

Thank you for this! I highly recommend it especially when source materials for this type of setting is extremely rare.

This backgrounds are really great! I'd like to do a game with it!
Especially I like the female room, made in pink colours. It can be used not only erotic context, but for everyday use (even, for all ages games/comix!).
There is a lot of halls in the house. I thinks, it is too much of them: hall near the entrance door, hall near staircase, hall near one room, hall near another room... Argh! It will be better, if there was more rooms too.
But anyway, there is a great background pack!

It's EGS again!

Well, Okkotos is a simple enough game but is really fun to play. Archer girl is hard but cute enough to make you want to really master how to get past those superfast ducks!

Shield girl is easier to play and I'm sure she makes a good partner for the archer in 2P.

Also take a look at Recettear, another game I have lavished much hours on.

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.

"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.
