I usually don’t play games like this, but lately, I’ve been finding myself drawn to story-heavy games. I’m extremely picky about the games I play. The art has to be on point, the gameplay casual (since I usually multitask), and a reasonable, if not nonexistent, paywall. The last of which I realize some people can’t relate to, which I totally understand. Games can get expensive fast, always beware of the amount you spend if you decide to do so. 

Anyway, back to this game… Well, I guess since we’re on the topic of money I’m going to have to break it to you: this app is one of those that can get expensive quickly. So far I’ve only managed to spend about 10 dollars, and that’s where my spending is going to end. It is entirely possible to play without spending any money, but the wait time to gather enough currency to make the premium choices is excruciatingly long. It may take a week or more to collect enough points. For many, this could be or is a total deal-breaker. If it is, I don’t blame you and I honestly would recommend you stay away from this game. 

Now, if a little investment doesn’t bother you, the app has had some pretty good deals for new players. If you take your time with the game, you can probably play pretty comfortably with the paywall anyway. It really depends on the type of player you are. 

The game boasts some pretty exceptional art. And unlike some similar apps I’ve tried out the art is consistent throughout. If you already have a tendency to simp for 2D characters, let me tell you that this game will not help with that at all. They do not hold back and the sheer amount of beautiful characters to choose from is sometimes overwhelming. Additionally, each character includes unique storylines and depending on the decisions you make the romance could be never-ending! And whatever preferences you have, this app got you. Trust me. 

As a queer woman, I’m glad to say this game is incredibly inclusive. It’s so refreshing to have a game that doesn’t force you to court a person you likely wouldn’t in real life (in my case a man). While most of these games are targeted towards straight women, having an option for members of the alphabet soup gang is practically revolutionary.

If you’re willing to part with some money, this game is totally for you. If you need a little romance in your life this game is definitely for you. Give it a go! Just beware, it’s just as addicting as real-life online dating can be.

Otagi: Spirit Agents Review

By now you can probably tell I’m a fan of Japanese RPG’s, especially those that include gatcha. Otagi: Spirit Agents is a promising entry into this genre, but doesn’t quite manage to deliver what I’m looking for in these types of games. 

While the art is beautiful,  I find the story and actual gameplay to be quite lacklustre. Additionally, I find the gatcha system not as rewarding as it could be for free-to-play players. I don’t expect to only get high-ranking characters, but I find the abundance of repeats not worth it. 

For more casual players this game may be harder to progress in because it tends to regard a lot more “grinding” than similar titles. I found it didn’t take me long to get to a point where I was thoroughly stuck.

I found this game one day when I was exploring deep in the app store with the hopes of finding a hidden gem. I’m always sceptical, and during the tutorial, I didn’t know what to think about this game; but after playing it for a while I realized it was exactly what I was looking for and more. 

The gameplay and user-interface are both easy to learn and navigate. And while thee game, like any RPG, has a fair amount of strategy it’s not the kind that will leave you scratching your head or frying your brain to figure out the best course of action. 

Also, like many modern RPG’s, this game runs on a gachpa system for acquiring heroes. While most games you strive to have the highest star ranked characters, this game allows you to reasonably advance with almost any character if you play your cards right. Of course, that’s not going to stop you from trying to acquire all the five-star heroes. And you can get quite a few without spending real-life money, which in my opinion is quite amazing.

Heir of Light Review

Heir of Light is an above-average entry into the RPG realm. With beautiful character and environment designs and a unique story. It’s is very much free-to-play, as there is seemingly an endless amount to do without spending a dime. Of course, if you decided to do so you will be rewarded generously. 

While the gameplay is easy to learn the UI can be a little cluttered at times with the world map is challenging to navigate. This is the only true downside of this game, and it’s something that doesn’t take long to get used to.
