Cat Girl Alliance
Developer: Sekilala | Publisher: G-Collections | Release Date: 2010 | Genre: Visual Novel | Website: N/A | Purchase: JAST USA
When Eiji transfers to a new college, he finds himself without any friends. The girl sitting behind him in class, Shizuko, catches his eye as well as Rumi, the class representative. It is only once Eiji decides to join an after-school club that he stumbles into the nurse’s office and discover Rumi and her friend, Natsuki, engaged in some sexual activities. Rumi manages to draw Eiji into this “club” and it’s not long before Shizuko joins as well.
Cat Girl Alliance is as the box states, an “erotic bishojo game for adults only” and as such should be kept away from children. While the game is not as twisted as some other entries in the genre, seeing as all the sexual activities that take place are consensual, it is definitely not for the easily offended or faint of heart. While Rumi is not a “cat girl” (she just likes dressing up as one) she is definitely a futanari, or hermaphrodite to those not familiar with the term. This fact, along with the completely uncensored graphics should be enough to deter most people from this title. If not, there is still lots of bondage, masochism, bodily functions and humiliation that crop up.
Cat Girl Alliance does not have much of a plot and generally does not waste any time getting to the h-scenes. I’m sure there are those that who will appreciate this, but it makes the game boring after a while and the characters are just flat stereotypes. Most of the action takes place in the school infirmary, although there are other locations like the library and a park as well. You only interact with three girls, although Rumis younger step-brother also makes a few appearances. The less said about him the better though. The few times that you do get to make any choices are few and far between, making the game feel even shallower than its competitors.
While the game was only localized in 2010 it came out in 2004 already so the visuals are nothing special. The resolution is stuck at 640×480 and the character paper dolls have very limited outfits and expressions.
There are only eight or so audio tracks, although two, namely “Gaze Into Twilight” and “Sparkling Summer” are rather nice. The voice acting is in Japanese and about what you would expect from a title such as this.
Without an interesting plot or characters, Cat Girl Alliance is just a collection of hentai images connected by some boring text. If that is all that you want, fine, but there are cheaper and better ways to view stuff like that.
