Crimson's original J-Girl Fight was a rather epic undertaking by the Circle, creating an extremely enjoyable h-game that featured a wide variety of female characters from popular games and manga. It was probably one of the most popular titles released by the circle.

J-Girl Fight 2 aims to repeat that with some mixed success. The gameplay is probably the main draw of this product. Featuring a combat system similar to a standard JRPG, you are tasked with assembling a team of girls from popular franchises and heading out to defeat other notable ladies. Each victory you achieve unlocks one or more new characters for your roster, but also increases the difficulty.

Many the battles play out more like puzzles than fights, as there are only a handful you can brute-force your way through. As nearly every character has different strengths and abilities, you'll find yourself spending a lot of time in test-and-failure attempts to figure out just which line up you need to win each battle. Though this COULD be tedious, because the fights play out so quickly it only rarely slides into that area and for the most part remains an enjoyable challenge.

Of course, because this IS Crimson, every battle you win also unlocks some hentai. This can range from simple CG images for 'minor' characters to fully voiced scenes for more challenging foes. Fans of the first game may be somewhat disappointed by the selection in part 2 though. There are nowhere near as many CG pictures for side-characters and the actual h-scenes themselves for overcoming boss-caliber characters are rather underwhelming.

This by no means makes it a bad game, but it does fall behind somewhat compared to the first of the series. It's still fun to play through without even looking at the hentai sections and the hentai is still Crimson, so you know it's going to be pretty good just the same.

Ecstasy KO is another greater offering by Crimson that manages to side step certain issues found in other games they've offered. The product includes both a fully voiced flash game and a gallery mode html that contains all of the story text and CG.

There are fewer characters featured than in many Crimson works, but featuring a smaller cast also allows them to devote more time to each scene. As is typical of Crimson, they do strip down the minor details of some of the designs, specifically in this instance Morrigan of Darkstalkers fame, which does hurt the over all quality. However, they made a good choice with the other characters by picking designs already very streamlined and detail-lite that work extremely well with the circle's style of art.

Ecstasy KO nearly hits a major pitfall with it's flash section, thanks in part to the poor choice to reuse the game mechanics from Dancing F - Nami Extreme. As in that product, the game is an interactive touch system where you must click certain areas on the female to build certain meters that lead to the next pictures. It shares the flaw of giving you far too little time between clicks to effectively build a sought-after combo and results in a very frantic rush to click that, in turn, hammers your ears with a series of cut-off voice lines. It's awkward and unenjoyable.

Thankfully, it's also completely optional. Seeming to have learned their lesson from Nami Extreme, the Circle has opted to allow you to view the flash section without the interactive sections. Playing out as a simple voice acted animation, this is a very welcome addition that hopefully will find it's way into future games.

All in all, Ecstasy KO is great offering from Crimson and worth a look for fan and new comer alike.

  • Release: Aug/15/2010

Kazu Awase 2 is definitely something different. It uses softcore hentai to train your brain. The premise is, panels of numbers are falling from the top, and using the numeric pad or the numbers at the top of the keyboard, you have to enter the number you'd add to the closest panel to equal the "attack number". For example, in the first stage, the attack number is 10. So, if a 7 were the closest to the bottom, you'd type in 3 and hit enter to clear it. As the percentage in the gauge at the bottom of the screen increases while you clear panels, you're treated to articles of clothing on the girl dropping off of her body. When she is fully nude, you win.

There are four girls to choose from, each wearing a different outfit and with a different level of difficulty. The artwork for them is good, and unlike most games with the given R-15 rating, it doesn't tease you with its nudity. As well, the concept is both amusing and fun, and while I wonder what happened to the first game in this series, this game is apparently a standalone. If you're looking for something more hardcore in the hentai department, look elsewhere, but as for me, I would recommend this as a nice blend of ecchi and quick thinking, and would like to see more from this circle.

Su**miya Ha**hi no Bakurai is a twist on a game most if not all of us have played when we were bored. In fact, it's mostly the same game. The difference is, as you clear stages, girls from the series progressively strip to their underwear, then nude, then posing suggestively before the final stage shows them covered in semen. There are three girls to choose from, all of them familiar faces from the series, and the story of the game involves them in school after hours providing sexual favors to boys.

Everybody knows this game, so I don't need to talk about it too much. All that's noteworthy otherwise is the fact that the game is very easy, especially compared to the game it's derived from. Not only are there relatively few mines to find, you're given unlimited tries, and the game doesn't even send you back a stage if you mess up. In short, it's a hentai take on an old game that needed something different to make it interesting.

Futagoshimai to Ecchi na Janken is a game pairing you with two loli sisters, outspoken and eager Natsuki or the shy and quiet Hina. After explaining the rules, you select one of the girls and begin a day in which you visit various places with the girl you chose dressed in different outfits, playing yakyuken with them to attempt to strip them naked and eventually have sex with them. You start with a few HP, while the girl's HP is representative of her clothes. If she wins, however, she can put her clothes back on, while you can't. The game also randomly throws in instances of being hit with "Smash!" where you automatically lose regardless of the gesture you picked, or "Heal", where you regain a point but can't go above your maximum.

The game mechanics are a little slow, as you have to either wait for the speech to end or click past it before you can advance. Other than that, and the seemingly high prevalence of "Smash!", this is a basic yakyuken game with cute undressing lolis who are willing to reward you quite well for winning. The game is fully voiced for both girls, and since there is a lot of dialogue in this game, it's quite big. The girls are also drawn quite cutely and are each given a variety of outfits to strip them out of, and with a different sexual encounter happening as you get them out of their outfits, you'll get both an earful and an eyeful of adorable loli.

Ominous organ music? A girl tied, blindfolded and gagged in a cannon? Is this going to end well?

Not for the girl, but it's really not as dark as it sounds. This is a simple game where the object is to pick from panels and find the pictures of clothes, while trying not to turn over the panel that will make the cannon fire and send the poor girl flying to an unseen fate. The clothes cards will tear an article of clothing from the girl, much to her protest. Once you've turned over enough cards without making the cannon shoot the girl out, she is instead raped by a faceless man while gagged, her state of dress during the scene dependent on how many of the clothing cards you found.

This is probably one of the darker premises for a Cutter's Adult Heaven game, and while rape is a pretty common theme among games of this circle, it's not every day that you see one with a possible worse fate for the girl in store. No blood or gore is present in this game, but the more sadistic among us here will probably enjoy it. A single play-through more or less shows you all the game has to offer, however, so at heart, it's a short game with a single premise. Looking at it from another angle, however, it could all just be a metaphor for premature ejaculation.

SisPuri Vanish!
Ma'vE
$12.86 / 1,404JPY
Exhilarating puzzle game which also including action-adventure materials. Get a hundred chain combo!
  • Release: Jun/12/2004
  • Purchased: 4x

SisPuri Vanish is a tricky puzzle game with a fairly large amount of play value. The game gives you a lot of play options, mostly the standard ones and options to play over a network. But, since the main draw of the game is the hentai, I'm going to focus on the Story mode.

The premise of the game is that you select from a number of young girls as your "little sister", and play against them in a block-shifting game where the object is to line up three or more of the same block, while the blocks scroll slowly toward the top of the screen. You have to keep your half of the board from reaching the top, and eliminate as many blocks as you can to add power to a gauge on the side of the screen. The arrow keys move your cursor, while the Z key switches blocks (you can only switch blocks horizontally), X advances the blocks on your side faster, and C takes what power you've racked up in the gauge and transfers that to blocks in bubbles that have to be adjacent to cleared blocks in order to be released, thus making it harder for them to get rid of the extra junk. However, your opponent will be trying to do the same. The player whose side reaches the top first is the loser. If you happen to win, you make the girl strip naked, and engage in a sex scene with her.

I've only played a couple of games like this before, long ago, so I can't think of other games to which this one is similar off-hand, but it's a bit like a mix of block-stacking games meeting the bubble-popping puzzle games. Instead of thinking geometrically, you have to think in patterns, and since the blocks are distinct from one another, it's not hard to learn. The girls in this game are incredibly cute and seem willing to please despite their shyness. There is only one story path for each girl, but with six of them to play against, there is still a decent amount of content. To sum it up, it's a puzzle game with cute small-breasted girls to play with in both senses of the word. Get it!

Caryo's works are always a mixed bag for me. As a general rule I love their art style, but don't care much for some of the content. With Female Sage LV_X, it's actually as often the art itself as the content throwing me off.

It's a simple enough game, starting a generic Sage from D**gon Quest and her misadventures at the hands of monsters and men alike. These are mostly rape scenes, so buyer beware if that's not your thing. They also feature things like body distortion, belly bloating, massive insertions, and so forth and though not EVERY scene does so, the majority do.

All scenes are accessed through a list, displayed several options at a time, that is easy to navigate and resembles the menu screen from the game it's base on, which is a nice touch. Every scene starts out black, with some exposition or voice acting to set things up. The voice actress for the sage does a pretty good job, though she's not particularly outstanding.

Each scene is also only a single picture and usually just a single alternate (which can be disappointing or a great relief depending on which scene you get into). They play extremely short and quick, so it doesn't take long to get through them. This can be good, if you don't care for a particular scene and want to get to the next, but it also means that when you find something you do like, there just isn't much of it.

While there is a great variety in content, there is actually a variety in artwork too. I'm not certain if Caryo was featuring guest artists here or just experimenting, but you'll find that the art style seems to change radically between some scenes and not always for the better. It's most noticeable in the design for the Sage herself, which can shift wildly from scene to scene.

Most of the art is at least decent though, so it's still worth checking out if you enjoy the Circles other works.
