So Beat Blades Haruka. Its another Alicesoft game, making it like the 15 or so Alicesoft title to be translated, and the first to be officially licensed and sold in the west. It has some drama surrounding that fact, but that’s not really important. An important thing to note is Haruka is unlike every other Alicesoft title in the west, so for this game I’m going to start with the gameplay as that’s what most people probably want to know about.
Scene Count CVC- 51 Salvation- 109+ 3 non-h TNR- 32~
Created by Clymenia, both translated by tengubengu(ulmf)
Length- CVC- 3-5 hours, Salvation-4-6, though up to 10 if hunting for scenes. TNR- 2-4
For this post I figured I would cover both of these at once, seeing as they are from the same creator and I’m playing them back to back. The post will cover CVC, then Salvation and my thoughts on the games.
So these are both RPG Maker VXAce games from the circle Clymenia. In one you play as a brand new super heroine who can sleep her way to profits, in the other you are a trio of girls off to stop the Demon’ Lord’s resurrection.
Edit: Another game from this group finished not two days after I posted this, so I am just adding it.
Romanesque is a raising sim thing created by Little Witch before the company went under and resurfaced as Tenco. In this game you teach two witch girls magic by rolling dice, so they can go on quests and eventually graduate to being official wizards/witches.
Xross Scramble is a collection of three Duel Savior fandiscs translated before we got the original game due to hacking problems. It contains two new stories in Xross Savior and Two Princesses, and a harder survival mode+challenge mode in Scramble Survivor. Continue reading →
Length- Full game about 10-15 hours without skipping.
Monster Girl Quest was first released in 2011, in its first part. Over the next 2 years it would have two more parts released and translated. I’ll be talking about the game as a whole as that is how it is meant to be played now.
