Cat Girl Alliance
Gameplay 4
Graphics 5
Sound 6

If you like your visual novels with plenty of sex scenes and very little plot, then I guess Cat Girl Alliance will be appealing. The limited amount of characters, futanari elements and lack of anything interesting happening beyond the sex scenes will however limit the audience of this game. While not the worst visual novel that I have played it is nothing special either.

Gameplay: Non-existent and with a bare bones storyline as well.

Graphics: Quite dated and the art style is a bit hit-and-miss.

Sound: A few nice tunes, but overall unremarkable

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.

*Review originally published in 2011.

Alphabeats: Master Edition

Alphabeats offers a new spin on word games by challenging your vocabulary as well as your reflexes. Creating the longest and most complicated words using letters dropping from the top of the screen is harder than it sounds, especially when tied to a fast beat. The game requires some quick reflexes as you must also dodge unwanted letters, so don’t expect a completely tranquil experience. However, if you have a good vocabulary and decent selection of songs to import into the game, it can certainly keep you busy for a while. Gameplay: Challenges your word knowledge as well as reflexes. Graphics: A little more bland than we would have liked to see. Sound: Includes a nice selection of music tracks as well as the option to import your own.

The Last Door – Collector’s Edition

The Last Door - Collector's Edition

Despite the fact that you can play most of the chapters for free online I still recommend this collector's edition of the game. The story is superb and the low resolution visuals are not as big a hindrance as you might think. The audio steals the show however with great sound effects and some outstanding tunes. Hopefully the wait until season two won't be too long as the adventures of Jeremiah Devitt is still far from over. Gameplay: Some nice puzzles, but nothing that is too obscure or frustrating. Graphics: Very low res, but once your eyes adjust you will barely notice. Sound: The audio really carries this game with bags of atmosphere from the great tunes and spooky sound effects.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing

While there is no danger of this game dethroning the Diablo series it is a solid action role playing game set in a unique gameworld. The mixture of steampunk and gothic elements offer some bizarre enemies and interesting locations to explore while the action never lets up. The complete pack also adds some essential DLC for extending the longevity and variety of the game. Gameplay: Traditional action role playing done right. Graphics: The visual style is nice and the creature designs superb. Sound: Great voice acting, meaty sound effects and some nice tunes.

Observer is a slow-paced, cyberpunk themed thriller from the same developers that brought us Layers of Fear. Despite the change of setting, Observer shares a lot of similarities with LOF, especially during the surreal hacking sequences where you invade the thoughts of other people and experience their worst fears. The incredibly detailed visuals and gripping environments make Observer a game that is hard to put down, but the slower pace and lack of control beyond observing your surroundings and scanning things might deter the action crowd. Overall, it is a title that all fans of the cyberpunk genre will enjoy and it offers an enthralling experience despite some technical issues. Gameplay: There is little to do apart from exploring your surroundings and scanning things for clues, but the game remains engrossing nonetheless. Graphics: The abundance of post-processing effects might be a bit much for some players, but there is no faulting the highly detailed visuals. Sound: The soundtrack is just as tense as you’d expect from a title like this and it is great to hear Rutger Hauer lending his vocals to the lead character.

Stranger of Sword City

Stranger of Sword City

Stranger of Sword City is a dungeon crawler with an interesting mix of fantasy and reality. The world of Escario is an interesting, but unforgiving place to explore, so brace yourself for quite a challenge. Battles are frequent and tough, but you have total control over how you want to shape your party of monster slayers. Tracking down and killing all the Lineage type creatures will also keep players busy for ages, so don’t expect to finish this game in a day. If you are looking for an old-school dungeon crawler and can handle a challenge then Stranger of Sword City is the game to play. Gameplay: Tough and unforgiving, but also very rewarding. Graphics: Beautiful artwork, but the dungeon textures could have been better. Sound: Features Japanese voice overs and some nice background music.

Stonekeep

Stonekeep

It was a very long wait for gamers back when Stonekeep was first announced until it was released, but it was also worth it. The game is fun to play, although some role playing purists might bemoan the lack of character customization. Stonekeep features a long quest, with plenty of great characters, but is hampered somewhat by slightly tedious combat and endless corridors that look the same. If you don’t mind the slow pace and the fact that the visuals are definitely showing their age, then you will have a lot of fun with Stonekeep. Gameplay: A fun dungeon crawler with a better than average storyline. Graphics: Obviously dated now, but back in its time the enemies and special effects were brilliant. Sound: The voice acting is surprisingly good and the music is nice and atmospheric.
