Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft Mobile Game Review Cardgame Like Magic The Gathering

I was a long-time World of Warcraft player. I quit about 4 years ago now, but still have fond memories of the game. Blizzard has a unique sense of humor and charm with their NPC’s and pop culture references sprinkled into their MMO and strong story and character development. Now, those same characters come to life again in the form of a collectible card game.

For fans of the MMORPG, Hearthstone brings back a lot of fun memories of your adventures, and gives you something to do to pass time when you can’t be playing your favorite MMO. For others, who have never played WoW before, fear not as no prior knowledge of the game world is neccessary to enjoy this deck building game.

In fact, if you like other board games and card games, such as Yugioh, Magic the Gathering, or the Pokemon trading card game, you will absolutely love Hearthstone as it lets you build your own decks and collect powerful cards. There’s a lot of strategy involved also in how you play each match against other players in real time making it one of the best trading card games for mobile devices.

Geeky: 5/5 

Sweetie: 2/5 

Overall: 60 / 80 75% C “Good Game for Girls”

Gameplay: 10/10 When the game starts you are given a random hero and some random cards. I started my journey as Jaina Proudmore, the mage. You can play either against computerized opponents, or connect online to play against other players such as yourself. You can either play casually or join “ranked” games – I always choose ranked myself, but it’s a matter of preference. If playing a ranked game, you gain and lose points which at the end of the “season” award various loot. Also when playing ranked, you are matched to an opponent who has approximately the same number of wins vs losses as yourself.

Regardless of which format you choose, more wins with your hero will unlock new class specific cards which you can add to your deck up until level 10. After level 10 you no longer earn cards, but instead every 3rd win will score you some gold which can be used to purchase new cards or enter the arena. (more on that in a bit.) Also, regardless of which style of game you choose, the first time you beat an opponent of one of the other 8 classes you will unlock that hero and be able to begin to level them and unlock their class cards as well.

The arena is a special type of match in which you’re presented a choice of 3 different random heroes, and given a pool of random cards from which to build your deck. It works similar to the (optional) deck builder helper when assembling your decks outside of the arena as well. You start by selecting some class specific cards, then low cost cards, high cost cards, and then it will look and for example, if you need more minions or more spells, etc it will present those cards which it deems to be best to help fill out your deck.

After putting together your arena deck, you go head to head with another player and the gameplay is the same as any other game mode method. The twist is that, after losing for three times, you will be kicked from the arena. You do not keep any of the cards in your deck. Instead, as you fight in the arena, each win will significantly increase your prize pool. At the end, when you’ve been defeated 3 times, you get to collect all of your winnings, these may be things like gold, card packs, crafting materials (used to make new cards), etc.

The card game itself plays very similar to Magic the Gathering. You have a mana pool, but unlike MTG, the mana pool in Hearthstone starts at 1 and increases by 1 each turn. Cards cost varying amounts of mana to put into play. There are “minion” cards which are the main card type, they have a score for attack and also a score for life points. When you attack another player’s minions, your minion will lose life points equal to their minion’s attack power, and their minion will lose life points equal to your minion’s attack power.

Some minions have special abilities such as Taunt which prevents you from attacking any other minions or heroes until that minion is destroyed, or Silence which can remove abilities from cards (such as removing Taunt for example), or Windfury which will allow a minion to attack twice per turn, or Charge which will allow a minion to attack on the same turn that it comes into play. Like MTG, minions have “summoning sickness” and cannot attack on the same turn they come into play, unless they have this ability.

In addition to minion cards, there are also spell and ability cards which can be played also for mana which can for example deal damage to minions or heroes, or heal your minions or your hero, or allow you to draw more cards, or grant abilities (like taunt, or +2 attack etc) to a minion.

The last card type that I’ll touch on, is “Secret” cards, they are played and set to the side until the conditional requirements of the card are met. Only the one who plays the card knows what these conditions are, hence the name “secret” as your opponent will unknowingly activate whatever effect the card has. For example a card may say “whenever a minion dies, put two copies of it into your hand” or “Whenever your hero is attacked, heal your hero by 10 instead”.

The game starts both players with 30 life points for their hero character. Each hero also has a special hero power which can be activated by spending mana. You can also equip your hero with equipment cards to raise the hero’s defense or grant it attack power to let it directly attack heroes and minions on the battlefield.

The object of the game is to lower your opponent’s life points to zero.

Graphics: 5/10 – The graphics are just kinda “okay” – It was neat to see my favorite characters like Thrall and Murlocs and so on. But when I compare to other mobile card games, I’m not blown away by the art, the card images are static, and the attack animations are basically the same for each card, except for spell effects. And let’s face it, it’s not very cute or “kawaii”. Overall I’m just not a fan of the WoW art style. And there are much more “pretty” collectible card games out there with dazzling special effects, animated cards, etc.

Music: 10/10 I super love the music in this game. I think it may be directly from WoW, but it’s been years since I played and can’t recall. It has a very “epic” feeling. I don’t know why, but it reminds me of “Lord of the Ring’s” music from the hit films. It just has a very “grand” and “adventurous” tone to it. It’s great!

Voice Acting 8/10 I love that each card has a battle cry when it enters the battle field, and most ARE taken from WoW and I recognized these little one liners right away. They used the same voice cast and it’s great. I deducted a few points simply because the voice acting is not really a significant portion of the game (such as other games like Lunar, or Dandelion etc where there’s hours and hours of voice acting.) The voice acting is a nice touch though and much appreciated.

Story: 0/10 – There is no story in this game, It doesn’t need one, but my scoring system requires I grade on this criteria, so that’s a zero.

Characters 10/10 – Although there is no story, there are still very iconic characters in this game, such as Thrall, Jaina, the Murlocs, Leper Gnomes, etc. If you are a fan of the lore and world crafted around the WoW franchise, then you will love seeing all of your favorite characters in this game. If you aren’t familiar with WoW, the game is still every bit as fun, but you won’t appreciate the characters as it’s very fan-centric in that regard.

Replay Value: 10/10 – It’s a different game each time you play because of the strategy involved. There’s also the desire to keep playing to earn gold to enter the arena or buy new cards. There’s a lot of strategy, into building your decks, if you get bored, you just pick a new hero and make a new deck and everything feels new again. I don’t think it’s possible to get tired of this game lol.

Overall: 60 / 80 75% C “Good Game for Girls” Note, if you discount the fact there’s no story mode in the game, then it becomes 60/70 or 86% or “Very Good Game for Girls” – it would have even made our top 10 list with that score at time of this writing – and that score more accurately reflects just how fun and addictive this game is. However, for my readers, story is the main thing that they expect in a game so I think it’s important to point out this game lacks in that area. Still really fun and highly recommended.

Ensemble Stars – The Free IOS Game That Lets You Collect Cute Anime Boys

Ensemble Stars | Dating Sim | Stat Raising Sim | Trading Card Game | IOS | Android | Anime | Game
Ensemble Stars | Dating Sim | Stat Raising Sim | Trading Card Game | IOS | Android | Anime | Game

I’ve been enjoying Ensemble Stars, a game that lets you collect cute anime boys. When I first got the game, I assumed it was like Love Live School Idol Festival! However, it’s a little bit different. Most notably, Ensemble Stars is a Stat Raising Simulation. Not only do you collect the cards (just like in Love Live School Idol Festival!) but then you train different stats such as vocals, dancing, etc. Also, this is NOT a rhythm game. I initially thought it was, until playing it. There’s no user input in battles; it’s all mathematically determined. Your cards stats vs the Opponents’ stats.

This game is not available yet in the US app store. And in no app store is it in English; However, you can easily make a free account (must be on a PC (or mac)) by logging out of your main account and then at the bottom of the screen, change location, and select either the Korean or Japanese app stores. Then sync your iphone/ipad with your new purchase (its a free game).

The company also makes a game called Ensemble Girls which is available in the US app store, however, it is not in English. I just started playing Ensemble Girls lastnight and its gameplay is markedly different from Ensemble Stars. Ensemble Girls plays like a board game. You roll dice and move the corresponding number of squares through each level. You encounter girls to battle and collect points. You can use points to summon new girls for your deck and also get sweet tasting food which if you feed to the girls makes them level up. It’s a cute game, but the gameplay in Ensemble Stars is more fun since it’s a stat raising sim, which Ensemble Girls is not.

When you first start playing Ensemble Stars you get to select one “team” to be your “starter deck” which will determine your rare card.

This is the one I chose, because, he is hot as hell LOL. :drool:

There’s also a dating sim element to the game too. You can date the guys and by correctly responding to their questions (which are not in English), they will level up. Here are a few more screens showing all of these elements of gameplay. The dating sim, the stat raising sim, and the collectible card game (ccg).

The game is really super fun – even though I can’t understand a word of it. I keep hoping they’ll bring us an English version. It’s in many asian countries already. I think with the rise in popularity in America of otome games and dating sims and JRPGs we would be a good market for this game as well. I have already emailed the company and asked them if they would please release an English or “international” version of their app. The game has only been around since April of 2015. So it is not even a year old yet. That means there’s still a chance they could release it at some point in English.

Geeky: 

Sweetie: 

Overall: 70 / 90 78% C+ “Good Game for Girls”

Concept: 10/10 finally a game like Love Live School Idol Festival but with all boy cards! Sweet!

Gameplay: 10/10 – The stat raising simulation and dating sim aspects are really fun, and it’s exciting/thrilling to summon the rare cards that you really want to add to your deck.

Graphics: 10/10 – one of the cutest games around. The little chibi sprites are so cute as they dance and practice their moves in the stat raising sim portion of the game. The still artwork on each card is beautiful, and the dating sim element treats us to fully animated 2d sprites. (not chibi though, full drawn like the card artwork. Lovely.) The backgrounds and environments are also beautiful, and the user interface is so simple and easy to use that I can easily navigate the game even without it being in English (I can’t say the same for Ensemble Girls which I’ve been stumbling through for the past day or two.)

Story: 0/10 – Unfortunately until the game is available in English, the story is a 0/10 – It might have a good story for all I know, but I can’t read it.

Characters: 5/10 – Well the characters are definitely easy on the eyes. But once again I can’t read any of their backstories. So shrugs. If I’m going by character art / concept / design it’s 10/10 – but It would be nice to have the “feels” during the dating scenes by understanding wtf the characters are saying. And getting to know their personality by more than just their facial expressions.

Replay Value: 10/10 Like most mobile games, there are numerous events every month with the chance to get rare limited edition cards and items.

Music: 10/10 – I really like the opening theme and some of the background music also

Voice Acting: 7/10 – I love the voice actors in this game as well. I can’t understand wtf they are saying since there’s no English subtitles (and I deducted points for that), but I do hope that should this game be brought over, that they keep the original voice cast in tact.

Overall: 70 / 90 78% C+ “Good Game for Girls”

If it were in English, chances are story and characters would rate higher, but as it is right now today, it’s still totally playable, and quite enjoyable even without understanding the dialogue.

Overall: 54/70 77% C+ “Good Game For Girls”

Concept: 8/10 – This is a very cute app with a lot of fun features. The main focus is on dressing up your “student” and entering different monthly challenges for limited outfits. There’s also an otome element to the game as you can interact with your pet in a “dating sim” sort of fashion.

Gameplay: 10/10 The game begins by selecting what type of animal boyfriend you would like. The choices include: cat, dog, fox, rabbit, or wolf. This determines your basic “starting” appearance, including hair, eyes, expression, and clothes. But all of this will be changed later as you play, so it’s not too critical, just pick whichever one you like best. I chose cat, because I love cats. And when your boyfriend “sleeps” he will evolve back into his animal form which is a very cute chibi super deformed version of an animal sleeping. After bringing your boyfriend home, you can send him to work to earn money (to buy more clothes), or train him to study. By studying, your boyfriend will begin to develop his own personality. There are several different personality types, and you can “equip” both a main personality and sub personality. These personalities influence the way in which the pet will respond during events and when talking to him. There are a lot of events, with one running almost constantly. Some common event types include competing with other players to get votes for best outfit in various themed categories, exploring different maps and collecting new limited items, or item synthesize events in which you combine different items to make new items. These events are ranked against other players and give out nice limited rewards; also there are progress prizes for making it to various score marks. Some outfits will also earn bonus points when equipped during the event or save on your energy to allow you to explore more efficiently. There’s some other gameplay elements which I’ll explain under community below.

Story: 6/10 Most of the events have a story, such as you become sick and he has to take care of you, or you’re going on a picnic, or going to the beach, etc. But the stories are pretty simplistic. They are cute, and better than not having any story at all; but it’s overall, not a very story centric game.

Graphics: 10/10 The graphics are adorable, and the main incentive to play through this game frequently. It makes use of dozens of item “slots” where you can equip and “layer” the items you’ve acquired to create new outfits. Here are a few of the looks my pet has experienced recently:

Music: 4/10 The music is a bit repetitive and they could do with adding some new tracks. There’s no voice acting, and no sound effects either – but the music that is there, is done nicely and not annoying.

Community: 10/10 As I mention under gameplay, there are frequent community based events, where you compete against other players for rare loot and prizes. In addition to the events, you can also make recommendations to other players where their pet will wear the items your pet recommends to them. If someone recommends an item to you, you can even save that recommendation so you can equip it again later, which is a fun way to share outfits with your friends and score some new outfits. The items have a rarity value from normal to rare to super rare; and there’s always the urge to compete to have the best items. Limited items are released often as well. You can send short messages to your friends in game and sometimes your pet will run into other pets while out exploring during an event which will display a little dialogue scene.

Overall: 72/90 80% B- “Very Good Game For Girls”

Concept: 10/10 Amnesia Memories is an Otome Game which is a visual novel in which you play a female protagonist with male love interests. The game is presented on the premise of parallel universes and allows the users to choose which world they’d like to play in. This determines which guy they will be targeting. Each guy has at least 3 different endings: Good, Normal, or Bad. You’ll know you get the good ending for a particular guy if you see the credits roll afterwards. (You can also check your progress by looking at the album and viewing the endings you’ve unlocked.) Like most games in this genre, if you play through all of the routes, an additional final route will unlock which helps tie all the other routes together and bring closure to the game.

Gameplay: 7/10 Like most visual novels, there is no combat or action to speak of, just lots of reading and at certain points making decisions which drive the story down one of many different endings. There are minigames; however, instead of inserting them into the actual gameplay, (like say the way Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side does), the games are just tacked into the options/menu screen like an after thought, and they are not terribly interesting either. The number of choices you make in this game is quite high compared to other visual novels, however; I’ve noticed that as far as the storyline goes, the majority of these decisions are only giving you the ILLUSION of choice, and not actually changing anything — except — they often DO change your stats which ultimately does change the story.

These stats include your affection, trust, and suspicion (and in some routes, doubt also becomes a stat, but in other routes, that stat is not used, which is odd, because it should have been used for example, in heart world in my opinion; there were plenty of reasons to doubt the guy there as well.) I’m not totally sure how these stats are used to determine the ending; but the main premise is that you are supposed to hide your amnesia (although in heart world it’s discovered immediately within like the first ten minutes of that route and I haven’t seen any way to change that). In addition to hiding your amnesia you’re supposed to get closer to the guy to try and learn more about yourself and cure your amnesia.

To do this, you need to build both affection and trust with your partner. The stats do not have to be maxed out completely though to get the good ending and actually it can be quite hard to get the good ending in some worlds. I had a heck of a time in heart world. I replayed it 7 or 8 times, and realized it came down to just one answer that had revealed a key cutscene that I had missed. Once I finally got the good ending and saw the credits roll, I realized that I had not reached the “good” ending for clover world which I had thought I had, because unlike in heart world, I had gotten all of my memories back, and the ending I felt was really good and I had even gotten a trophy – so as I said, unless you see the credits each time, you need to go back because you did not get the good ending :).

Luckily, when you go back, you can quickly skip read text and previously used choices will be highlighted in a different color to help you keep track of your decisions. Save often too! Pay attention to how each response you make changes your parameters. I have about 10 save files and I cycle through them every 3-4 in-game days, this way I don’t have to start all over each time I reach a normal or bad ending.

Edit: I’m having a really hard time with this game. Clover was easy as cake but both Heart and Diamond have taken me at least 5-6 playthrus. I finally pulled up a spoiler free walkthru for diamond (which has links to the other routes as well) and am trying to beat diamond still as of this writing. I’ve included a link which will take you to the author’s website above so you can use the walkthru as well. I had my affection completely maxed with Toma and my doubt was low (under half), but I still kept getting normal or bad end. I guess if you answer one single question incorrectly you can lock yourself out of ever being able to get the good ending no matter how high your parameters are. Which once again calls into question why these parameters are even necessary and what they are accomplishing exactly? In Diamond the choice that locks me out of good end happens on August 6th – the game goes on until the end of the month. Meaning a lot of wasted time if you just want the good ending. And it’s not a readily apparent choice, since you have to lie here to be put on the good end route. I would think lying would increase your doubt and lower your trust. These parameters confuse me so much!

Story: 7/10 The story of course is the main point of these types of games. The story is good, but predictable. I knew right away in heart world who pushed me, and so I never suspected the other characters that the game spent so much time trying to cast doubt upon.

I have only completed Heart world and Clover world at time of this writing, and I begun to play Diamond world lastnight as well. Heart and Diamond have a LOT more suspense/mystery. Compared to these routes, Clover was pure Romance/fluff. Ukyo only appears for a moment in Clover, and they don’t seem to develop him much there, but even that tiny glimpse was enough to make me VERY curious about him.

I see he is very prominent so far in Diamond. — I’m assuming Ukyo is probably the true/final route in the game, although it’s just my speculation and not a spoiler or anything. Just I have this feeling that he’s really important. I have my own theory about him, but I’ll keep that to myself and let you form your own opinions while you play.

I have not played Spade route yet at all (though Ikki is probably the most handsome guy in the game.) so I can’t comment on Ikki’s route yet, but so far all 3 routes that I have played, have had good stories.

In Heart World, you’re trying to help your boyfriend solve a crime that caused you to fall from a cliff, a crime which you have no memory of. The police suspect your boyfriend and you have to help clear his name. When you learn the truth, it is quite painful (though not surprising at all; I had it figured out pretty early on).

In Clover World, you discover that you had a fight with your boyfriend the day before you lost your memories, and now he wants to meet to talk about the fight and the future of your relationship. Wanting to use the opportunity to learn more about yourself, you agree to meet and try to hide the fact that you don’t remember him. You seem to be successful in the beginning at keeping his suspicions at bay and you continue to meet with him as it seems to be helping you to remember more. As you grow closer to him you begin to wonder why you were fighting in the first place, and also wonder if learning the truth will cause your feelings for each other to change.

In Diamond Route, you have to hide your illness to avoid going back to a hospital. Your childhood friend, Toma, has been helping to take care of you while your parents are overseas. He claims he’s not your boyfriend, but that you did date eachother. He said he didn’t want to tell you because it would confuse you. Which you seem to take to mean that you were dating recently, before the amnesia. In your notebook you also have many “dates” listed where you met with another man, a coworker at a cafe where you worked. While trying to figure out where both of these men fit into your life, someone approaches you with a warning about your boyfriend and a threat on your life; strange things begin happening which put you in danger and add to the problems you’re already facing.

The pacing of all of the routes feels pretty good. You’re given one month in game time to solve the mysteries and regain your memories. This amounts to about 4-6 hours per route for your first playthrough, and substantially less for replays due to the skip feature and ability to keep multiple save files. With 5 routes to complete, it amounts to 20-30 hours total of play time, assuming you beat all the routes and achieve good endings for each on your first run. This is just long enough to capture your interest and leave you with questions and desire to play through the many different routes to learn more about each of the characters.

The story is well written, but like many games with heavy text; it suffers from some translation/localization errors. Sometimes entire words are missing that leaves a sentence not making sense (though you can figure it out by the context of other sentences). For example in Kent’s route in his ending one line says something like “Your feelings I fully now.” (it’s missing the word understand; “Your feelings I fully understand now”.) There’s other cases where a word should be singular or plural, or a or an are used incorrectly, but those are minor compared to some sentence mangling as demonstrated above. Also I think, but could be wrong, that the names of places sometimes change (within the same route). I say I “think” because, the example I can think of is getting a text from Kent saying he’s in XYZ Laboratory; and when I arrive at the campus my character says “So this is ABC University” It could be possible that the laboratory has a name itself which sits within the university, but to me it felt like the game couldn’t decide what it wanted to call the place – though it could have been intentional. Little inconsistencies like this, don’t detract from the story, but definitely pull you out of immersion.

The main thing that pulls me along in this story is this burning question / feeling that someone is lying to me. Why is it so cold in “August”? Why do I not have a cellphone? Why did someone take my computer battery AND charger? It’s like they don’t want me to know what the date REALLY is (or they want to prevent me from contacting anyone). Is Toma checking my mail to keep me from seeing anything with the current date, or is he really just being a gentleman for me? Maybe he was the one that put scary things in my mailbox to discourage me from wanting to check it myself. And although there’s a calendar in my room and everything is the way I left it, each route, someone has had a key to my apartment and been in there while I’ve been away. What are they trying to hide?

This to me is a much more interesting question than the amnesia itself. I don’t know if my questions will be answered or if I’m correct but it’s just something that feels REALLY off to me. And other games I’ve played have done this before (Remember 11 comes to mind) which puts me on high alert for this sort of plot twist.

This feeling that something is not right, really makes me want to complete all the routes. I think there’s more to this story than meets the eye. I’m not sure I’m correct yet, but something just feels so off to me. It’s an interesting plot device, and although I have seen it before, it’s not “overly” used. It adds an extra layer of mystery to the story. And then there’s Ukyo, who says he’s a friend but also an enemy, he seems so sad, but also scary. He seems to know everyone but no one knows him, and he seems to have something against me, but also seems to be in love with me, and he appears to be suffering from multiple personalities as well. This makes it more of a thriller / mystery than just pure fluffy romance. It sets it’s story apart from other games with a sense of fear, paranoia, and anxiety. The mystery and the way in which Orion is presented almost as a main character (more on that under characters) make this an otome game that even male gamers could enjoy.

Characters: 7/10 Characters’ jobs, studies, backgrounds, and relationship with our heroine change in each route; but their personalities more or less stay consistent. Characters shift in and out of focus and become major or minor characters depending on what world you’re in. Below is a brief overview of the different characters:

Shin: Shin is often misunderstood, his appearance and attitude can come across as quite scary, but he’s actually very hard working and responsible. He was born into a poor family and his father had a questionable background which made Shin have to work harder to prove himself or make friends. His current goal is to study for the college entrance exams in order to obtain a scholarship. He really enjoys studying. He speaks very bluntly, it’s not that he’s cold, or a Tsundere, but just rather, he believes that by being harder on the heroine, it will encourage her to strive to do better for herself as well.

Toma: Toma is like a big brother to both you and Shin. He is always doting on you and spoiling you. He views it as his job to protect you and shelter you. Unlike Shin, he is not very honest about his own feelings, and tends to handle the heroine very delicately.

Shin and Toma: In Heart and Diamond, you, Shin, and Toma are childhood friends who have been together since birth and there’s a love triangle dynamic. In Clover, and I assume Spade, they are merely your coworkers at the cafe. But even in these routes, Toma still has that “big brother” attitude towards you (and his other coworkers). In Clover and Spade, Shin and Toma are both actual brothers (related by blood or marriage).

Kent: Kent is a graduate student (in all of the routes I’ve played so far), and he loves Mathematics. He is very shy and not good at dealing with people which makes him come across as cold and calculating. He tries to reason his way through everything, including his relationships and feelings. Although he comes across as cold, it’s simply a misunderstanding because he thinks so differently and rationally all the time, and the heroine is more pure and impulsive, this leads to friction between the two characters. Although he is also strict (like Shin), he will also give praise and compliments more freely than Shin. Like Toma, he also has a hard time expressing his true feelings and emotions. He gets shy, embarrassed, and flustered quite easily which the Heroine sometimes interprets as Kent trying to push her away. He’s best friends (in all routes so far) with Ikki, another mathematics student at his university.

Ikki: I know the least about him since I haven’t played Spade world yet; from what I have seen of him in other routes, he’s a playboy with a lot of charm, goodlooks, confidence, and charisma. He knows the perfect things to say, and often helps Kent by giving him dating advice. Kent and Ikki both love math puzzles, riddles, and games. They’re both very competitive with eachother. Ikki enjoys making Kent jealous. Ikki seems to think he has special powers over women which comes from his beautiful eyes. He claims he can hypnotize anyone who looks into his eyes. For this reason he often wears sun glasses when he is around others.

Waka: As far as I am aware, Waka is not a dateable character, though there are two ??? boxes on the main menu still – I’ve read there’s only 5 routes, and I’m betting the 5th belongs to Ukyo. — ANY wanys, Waka is your manager at work. From what I’ve seen, he’s completely different in Heart and Clover. In clover he’s the strong silent type and very strict with his employees. He rarely smiles, and rarely even talks. In heart he talks a lot, teases and jokes with his employees, and seems very kind and caring. I’m not sure why his personality changes when they keep the other characters pretty much consistent in all routes. It is interesting :).

Mine: I really don’t like how they spelled her name; they should have changed it for localization to Mina or Minnie. Just my opinion It’s pronounced Mee-nay, Minnie would have been closer than Mine (which I want to read/pronounce just like the english word). Anyways, that aside, Mine is one of your coworkers at the cafe, and one of your best friends, but her or Sawa alternate as perspective love rivals in some routes. She’s very feminine and sweet (although she can act cold if she thinks you are competition for her in any way).

Sawa: Sawa is another one of your coworkers and one of your best friends; she’s very athletic and outgoing, somewhat of a tomboy type character (basically a direct opposite of Mine). As mentioned above, Sawa also appears as a love rival in some routes.

Ukyo: This mysterious character appears in each route with multiple personalities, and he seems to know everyone, but they do not know him. In most of the routes he seems to both loathe and love the heroine. He seems like a dangerous guy, but he also seems rather sad and pittiful too.

Rika: So far, I’ve only seen Rika in one route, she’s a very elegant older woman (probably around Kent’s age, maybe a little older); She’s a bit of a snob, and in the route I saw her in, she seemed very interested in Ikki so she may very well be a love rival for you there in Spade World.

Orion: This little guy is the reason for your amnesia (not a spoiler, it’s introduced before you even play the game for the first time). He’s a demon from another dimension who was “traveling to earth for important business” when his mind “collided” with yours, causing you to lose your memories. He’s now trapped inside of you, and if you don’t recover your memories, he will overtake your conscious and take over your body. In order to separate, you need to recollect your memories to push him back out of your conscious.

I like most of the characters, but I do not like the way Orion is presented in the game. He speaks for the heroine; thus the heroine is the only character in the game who is not voiced. If we are not yet fully merged, shouldn’t the heroine still think/feel for herself without being told what is happening in 3rd person all the time? It makes me unable to connect with the heroine which is bad because I want to care about her as much as I care about the other characters, but I really don’t because she is downplayed so much and presented “through” Orion.

Typically most visual novels leave the lead character somewhat of a blank slate; to help create immersion; but the fact is, they do have a character portrait for her, and several CGs featuring her, but the only time you see the heroine’s portrait (other than the CGs) is when you enter her name on the title screen.

I don’t mind seeing Orion SOME but I would have liked to have seen my player character some too; I know we are supposedly “linked” to where we feel the same feelings, fear, happiness, embarrassment, etc; but I would have liked the heroine to speak for herself and to show her emotions through her own character portrait instead of always “hiding” behind Orion.

Because Orion also has a VERY distinctive personality, it makes it hard to immerse myself into the role of the heroine. He’s VERY immature, although he is kinda kawaii (cute) sometimes. He has an almost “overbearing” personality that I feel is so different sometimes from my own. Which brings me back to the point that typically most visual novels leave the lead characters more generalized; but because this game focuses SO much on Orion instead of the heroine, it makes it very hard to “plug yourself” into the heroine’s role. It made me feel less like I was playing as the heroine, and more as if I was playing AS Orion since you see him constantly throughout the game.

Graphics: 6/10 Why are the backgrounds not colored? Maybe there’s a reason for this plot wise (like I’m in a coma, or dreaming, or something). But so far I see no reason why the backgrounds are “black” and white (more like green and white). It is kinda “lazy” to me to leave them this way. It does draw more attention to the characters, and the character art is gorgeous. There’s a good number of what I call “CG scenes” in which you see special extended artwork (that’s usually more detailed than the regular game artwork). Still when you look at games like Nekopara or the upcoming Norn 9 Var Commons (which is also by Idea Factory); you wonder why there’s not more animation in this game. The character portraits have various emotions and expressions, which range from serious to humorous (Orion often has very many “anime” style expressions like the wide streams of tears, or two little beady eyes).

The interface is clean and simple, and the text is easy to read even from across the room while playing on my ps tv. But the whole “stat” thing confuses me, because as I said it does NOT need to be maxed out to obtain the good endings. And your suspicion can be maxed out and not get a bad ending. And there’s only one good ending per route (as far as I know); so why are there seemingly multiple “good” stats (Trust and Affection). One would think there would be a “Trust ending” “Affection Ending” “Normal ending” and “Bad Ending” but I don’t think that’s the case. I think it’s more likely that trust = normal; and affection = good ending, when if you think about it, a “good” relationship needs equal measure of both trust and affection.

I would have liked to have seen something graphically that made more sense to me here. Maybe show your heroine with various expressions, such as a blank stare for normal, a happy or blushing face for good ending, and a fearful, sad, or angry face for the bad ending. It would have been more clear than these sliders which dont seem very accurate. In heart world, my Affection was ALMOST maxed, but not quite, and my Suspicion (a bad stat) was completely maxed). My trust was high too but not as high as either of those, and somehow I still got the good ending despite not having either of the two “good” stats maxed, and the one bad stat’s bar being at maximum level. That’s just confusing to me.

Music: 10/10 Both the opening and ending themes are quite catchy and memorable and the music throughout the game does not feel repetitive or annoying.

Voice Acting: 10/10 The game is fully voiced and they keep the Japanese voice track which is a plus and what most of the people playing these types of games would prefer, so kudos to Idea Factory for that. The voice acting itself is very well done.

Replay Value: 10/10 The fact that you need to beat all 4 routes to unlock the Joker’s route makes you want to replay the game to learn the truth. Not only that, but the ability to skip read text helps with subsequent playthroughs in the same world trying to get the good endings.

Overall: 72/90 80% B- “Very Good Game For Girls”

Gameplay: 8/10 You can earn donuts (the in-game currency) by participating in in-game events, visiting your friends’ planets, completing quests from npcs, and leveling up your character. As you level up, your stamina is also increased allowing you to accomplish more before needing to rest. You can also increase your stamina by cooking different recipes. You then spend donuts on new items for your avatar, room, or planet. There’s a ton of in-game events, and new items released almost daily for you to collect. Because the items only stay a short while, it encourages you to log in and play more frequently. Gameplay itself is fairly basic, and it can get very repetitive. The only thing that keeps it fresh is the Fashion fever events and desire to collect new cute items in the limited edition “gumball shop”.

Music: 2/10 There are only 3 or 4 different music tracks and they are short, and sometimes grating on the nerves.

Story: 1/10 There’s a story, but it’s very immature and not at all detailed or deep. It’s also only presented as a prologue and not really used throughout the game. The story says that the Minis (which is what your avatar is) came from outer space to earth because they heard of the delicious donuts available here. They now live inside human pockets, feasting on donut crumbs and wanting to be friends with humans. (why are there crumbs in my pocket? Do I carry donuts in my pocket? lol) For awhile, everytime I logged in, or started the app, I had to watch the somewhat long, and rather boring, introduction over and over. I think they may have fixed that, as I haven’t noticed it recently, but there was no way to skip it, and I was getting sick of seeing that opening animation (which unlike the actual game graphics, was pretty ugly).

Characters: 5/10 Well there’s not any “story based” characters, but the community is full of other players who have their own unique avatars and there is a roleplaying community that’s very strong in the game too; so you can use your imagination to create any kinds of characters you’d like.

Customization: 10/10 You can dress your avatar in up to 6 accessories at once, and shoes, a dress, suit, or top and bottoms don’t count against that total so you’re looking at about 10 choices to layer your outfits. You also control your skin color, eyes, nose, mouth, eyebrows, and makeup. The most interesting feature is the ability to combine front and back hair styles to create your own custom hairstyle/color. In addition to customizing your avatar, you can also customize your planet, and your room, with dozens of decorations.

Community: 10/10 There are a lot of great community features in Pokemini. There’s a forum that all users can browse or post in and it’s fairly active. People start their own roleplay groups as mentioned above; or just chat about daily life. You also have your own private forum back in your room that users can chat with you one on one on. There’s also private messaging and chat room functionality. In addition to that, there’s a ranking system where it shows who your top or recent visitors were and who’s helped you the most the previous week, and you have 20 “free” donuts to give to your helpers, and they may give you a donut too which sort of encourages you to visit all of your friends’ planets (I’m usually too lazy for that though, I mean even if 20 friends give me a donut that week, that’s not much incentive, when the gumball costs 200 per play). Sometimes I feel “guilty” and try to go visit all my friends and keep it up for a week or two, but then I slip back into not caring and not feeling motivated. You can harvest your friends’ trees, and help them grow faster (so you can harvest them faster); the fruit harvested here can be used in recipes to increase your stamina. And as mentioned a few times above, there’s a ton of community events from fashion shows to flea markets. Most of the community is nice, but they’re mostly young “highschool” aged kids. I feel kind of out of place as a 30 something year old playing this game at times. Because of the “anime art style” I find a lot of users with similar interests to me, including Asian Balljointed Dolls, anime, or Kdrama enthusiasts.

Performance: 4/10 It’s not impossible to play this game; and it doesn’t crash every time, but there’s some connectivity issues that really need addressed. Most notably, it crashes sometimes while “voting” in Fashion Fever events which causes you to not get credit for the time you spent voting since you have to complete a “round” of voting to receive the donuts. It does this at least once every other day for me, while playing on an older generation Ipad 2.

Replay Value: 10/10 The replay value is high here due to the numerous in-game events, limited edition items, and community aspects within the game.

I like this game more than my score reflects, as you can see, in some areas it scores quite highly, but there are just a few things that hold it back from “greatness” I’d still recommend it to anyone who enjoys these types of dressup games :)

Do I carry donuts in my pocket? lol) For awhile, everytime I logged in, or started the app, I had to watch the somewhat long, and rather boring, introduction over and over. I think they may have fixed that, as I haven’t noticed it recently, but there was no way to skip it, and I was getting sick of seeing that opening animation (which unlike the actual game graphics, was pretty ugly).

Characters: 5/10 Well there’s not any “story based” characters, but the community is full of other players who have their own unique avatars and there is a roleplaying community that’s very strong in the game too; so you can use your imagination to create any kinds of characters you’d like.

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js //

Customization: 10/10 You can dress your avatar in up to 6 accessories at once, and shoes, a dress, suit, or top and bottoms don’t count against that total so you’re looking at about 10 choices to layer your outfits. You also control your skin color, eyes, nose, mouth, eyebrows, and makeup. The most interesting feature is the ability to combine front and back hair styles to create your own custom hairstyle/color. In addition to customizing your avatar, you can also customize your planet, and your room, with dozens of decorations.

Community: 10/10 There are a lot of great community features in Pokemini. There’s a forum that all users can browse or post in and it’s fairly active. People start their own roleplay groups as mentioned above; or just chat about daily life. You also have your own private forum back in your room that users can chat with you one on one on. There’s also private messaging and chat room functionality. In addition to that, there’s a ranking system where it shows who your top or recent visitors were and who’s helped you the most the previous week, and you have 20 “free” donuts to give to your helpers, and they may give you a donut too which sort of encourages you to visit all of your friends’ planets (I’m usually too lazy for that though, I mean even if 20 friends give me a donut that week, that’s not much incentive, when the gumball costs 200 per play). Sometimes I feel “guilty” and try to go visit all my friends and keep it up for a week or two, but then I slip back into not caring and not feeling motivated. You can harvest your friends’ trees, and help them grow faster (so you can harvest them faster); the fruit harvested here can be used in recipes to increase your stamina. And as mentioned a few times above, there’s a ton of community events from fashion shows to flea markets. Most of the community is nice, but they’re mostly young “highschool” aged kids. I feel kind of out of place as a 30 something year old playing this game at times. Because of the “anime art style” I find a lot of users with similar interests to me, including Asian Balljointed Dolls, anime, or Kdrama enthusiasts.

Performance: 4/10 It’s not impossible to play this game; and it doesn’t crash every time, but there’s some connectivity issues that really need addressed. Most notably, it crashes sometimes while “voting” in Fashion Fever events which causes you to not get credit for the time you spent voting since you have to complete a “round” of voting to receive the donuts. It does this at least once every other day for me, while playing on an older generation Ipad 2.

Replay Value: 10/10 The replay value is high here due to the numerous in-game events, limited edition items, and community aspects within the game.

Overall: 76/110 69% D+ “Average Game For Girls”

I like this game more than my score reflects, as you can see, in some areas it scores quite highly, but there are just a few things that hold it back from “greatness” I’d still recommend it to anyone who enjoys these types of dressup games 🙂

Concept: 10/10 The concept in Pokemini is to collect limited edition items to decorate, not only your avatar, but also your room, and your planet. The highlight of the game is the new “Fashion Fever” events which allow you to earn free items or donuts (the in-game currency) by designing different looks based on a given theme which are then voted on and scored by the community. There’s also a brand new flea market to trade/sell items with other players, and a cooking element as well as quests to further engage the user.

Gameplay: 8/10 You can earn donuts (the in-game currency) by participating in in-game events, visiting your friends’ planets, completing quests from npcs, and leveling up your character. As you level up, your stamina is also increased allowing you to accomplish more before needing to rest. You can also increase your stamina by cooking different recipes. You then spend donuts on new items for your avatar, room, or planet. There’s a ton of in-game events, and new items released almost daily for you to collect. Because the items only stay a short while, it encourages you to log in and play more frequently. Gameplay itself is fairly basic, and it can get very repetitive. The only thing that keeps it fresh is the Fashion fever events and desire to collect new cute items in the limited edition “gumball shop”.

Graphics: 10/10 There are a ton of super cute “anime styled” items to collect and the customization features allow you to have complete control by layering the different looks or arranging items as you please.

Music: 2/10 There are only 3 or 4 different music tracks and they are short, and sometimes grating on the nerves.

Story: 1/10 There’s a story, but it’s very immature and not at all detailed or deep. It’s also only presented as a prologue and not really used throughout the game. The story says that the Minis (which is what your avatar is) came from outer space to earth because they heard of the delicious donuts available here. They now live inside human pockets, feasting on donut crumbs and wanting to be friends with humans. (why are there crumbs in my pocket?

How many GB of Storage do You Need for Your Apple Iphone or Ipad?

Apple angered a lot of consumers by not announcing a 32GB Apple Iphone 6S or 6S Plus at their annual Apple Event this month. The base model has just 16GB, while the next jump has 64gb, and the next 128 gb, each increasing substantially in price.

So how do you figure out how many GB you really need? I’m a huge gamer, so more space is always welcome. I currently have an Ipad 2 (older generation before they had Ipad Air) I have only the 16GB model. And for me, that’s plenty. I have over 40 IOS apps (games) installed right now. I do get alerts about my storage being full; and regularly I have to decide which apps to (temporarily) delete to make room for new cool games that I want to play.

But 40 games is a lot. I don’t even play half of those anywhere CLOSE to regularly (less than once a month, some I haven’t played in almost a year etc); I’d say I have MAYBE 12 apps (mostly all of them are games) that I play (almost) daily.

And it’s not like those apps disappear into oblivion – you can always redownload them – and since most of them sync your progress in their own servers (and require online play); you don’t have to lose all your progress each time you want to play it again either.

Now granted; I’m talking about an Ipad here; I’m not using it to take photos, videos, play my music etc; all things that I might do if I were using an Iphone instead of an Ipad.

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js// < ![CDATA[
//

The Itunes store complicates the issue further, by not telling you the REAL file size for the apps you’re downloading. It shows a compressed size, and apps can be up to 3 or 4 times larger than that once they’re uncompressed, installed, and through updates they receive over time, etc. This always leaves you guessing as to just how large an app really is.

I also wonder if some of the performance issues I meet on my Ipad 2 could be due to the fact that I run it very full with very little, if any free space at any time.

As technology advances, the games will keep getting larger too; the same thing happened back in the days of the PC. I remember having a PC with 10GB and wondering how I would ever use that much space; now, I have a 1TB HD and I could not work with anything less than 500GB at least.

Are our phones and tablets heading that direction? Maybe so, but not at such a fast speed compared to the growth of their PC counterparts. It is true that apps are getting larger; however, many of the apps on my Ipad are 10MB or smaller; and the largest app I know of (not currently installed on my device) is around 5 GB.

One GB = 1,000 MB. If most of my games are 10MB or under I should be able to fit 100 games at once on my Ipad. However; that’s not true. as I mentioned I have somewhere between 40-50 apps installed right now.

ch_client = “xenokitten”;
ch_width = 400;
ch_height = 90;
ch_type = “mpu”;
ch_sid = “Chitika Default”;
ch_color_site_link = “#164675”;
ch_color_title = “#164675”;
ch_color_border = “#B0C9EB”;
ch_color_text = “#333333”;
ch_color_bg = “#FFFFFF”;
http://scripts.chitika.net/eminimalls/amm.js

Where does the other half of my storage go? I take a lot of screenshots within the apps of various games Im playing but not enough to count for 8gb of storage. According to this chart online; 8gb would be over 5,000 images when shot with a 4mp camera – but the Ipad 2 has only a meager 0.3 (front facing) or 0.7 MP (rear facing) camera. My Ipad starts complaining for me to delete photos after about 1 or 2 hundred. Even if shooting RAW; it should hold at least 500-600 photos (plus all of my games)

I assume that the operating system itself is taking up a chunk of my GB real estate, as well as certain “bloat ware” apps that I can’t delete such as Newsstand and FaceTime. I’m not sure how many GB exactly.

I do not have any music or videos on my Ipad 2 (but if you happen to be a heavy video/music user, the rule of thumb is 3MB per 1 second of HD video filmed with your Iphone according to this discussion on the official apple forums so a 5 minute video is going to eat up close to 1GB of your space, roughly 900MB. And as for music, according to this source here, the rule of thumb is 1 MB per minute; so if you have an hour long playlist, your music is taking up 60MB (which is pretty small) for it to reach a gig, you’d need about 16 hours of music on the device at all times. You could save space by swapping in and out songs when you grow tired of them, etc); But since I have neither video, nor music, the only other culprit is temporary internet files since I do browse the net a lot on my Ipad.

Still, I feel that I can live harmoniously with my 16 GB. When I finally do get to purchase a new Iphone or Ipad, I will most likely stick to my 16 GB as it’s served me well for the past 6 years and technology won’t outpace it to where I’m forced to upgrade to a larger device right away. Of course I’d love a 64gb or 128 ipad pro, with the apple pencil, especially for art and design work; but for now, I’m just fine with my ancient Ipad 2 16GB wifi only model. Your mileage may vary, but hopefully this gives you some insight into just how far that 16gb will take you, especially if you just mainly want the space for apps and don’t plan to record a lot of video.

Tiny Farm Review | IOS | Android | Virtual Pet | Harvest Moon | Farmville

Title: Tiny Farm

Genre: Farming Simulator with City Building elements

Publisher: Com2Us

Grab it on IOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tiny-farm-season2/id448859328?mt=8

Grab it on Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.com2us.tinyfarm.normal2.freefull.google.global.android.common&hl=en

Geeky Factor: 

Sweetie Factor: 

Concept: 6/10 Tiny Farm is a game similar in nature to that of Harvest Moon or Farmville. The objective is to take care of live stock, plant and harvest crops, go fishing, and breed the animals in your farm, all while making a profit to buy new farming equipment, better seeds, better livestock, etc. It’s one of those games that’s fun in small doses, and addictive at first, but if you intend to play it heavily, you may become bored by the repetitive nature of these games. They try to lessen that effect somewhat by regularly having special events with limited edition livestock or other prizes that you don’t want to miss out on, which keeps you logging in to keep up with the latest in-game events and items. I also find it a bit more interesting than just a farming simulator as you can also run your own zoo, or go to the beach, or participate in other activities as well.

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js //

Gameplay: 7/10 The gameplay is pretty simple and straight forward, the controls are easy, you can click on an animal to bring up a submenu where you can give it “love” which helps it level up, and once it reaches certain levels of love it can breed with certain other animals who also have max love. You can also sell your animals to make room for new animals (which you’ll have to do a lot in the early levels as your space is very limited). You get to play the lucky bag gacha once every 24 hours for free and inside you will find things like animals, eggs, decorations, buildings, etc. You also get to go on a safari once a day for free. The safari is a mini game in which you must turn over cards to collect animal foot prints. Once you reach a certain number of footprints you’re able to bring home a new animal. You can find different animals in different areas on the map. You can place buildings and decorations around your farm, zoo, or beach to increase the profits from these areas. Also back on the farm, you can hire a search party to capture different animals; the choices change each day with different animals being able to be found. Legendary animals also appear and can be captured after having given animals on your farm enough love. To capture the legendary creatures you’ll need to spend even more love; which becomes problematic as you never have enough love when the animals first appear – they do this because they want you to spend money. If you can find a way to level up, that will replenish your love and allow you to capture the animal before it disappears. Visiting friends gives you a few bonuses, but is pretty useless, there’s really no social interaction or multiplayer appeal to this game. The repetitive nature of the game also drops it down a few points in our score, it’s just not very fun after awhile. I like to check in on my farm 3 or 4 times a day for about 15-25 minutes at a time; anything more than that would be incredibly boring.

Story: 0/10 There is literally no story. The game is going to take a hit in our score books here, since we always rate games based on story and gameplay.

Characters: 8/10 I kinda “fudged” this category a bit (otherwise the score will be too low); and for this review, I am considering the animals themselves as the characters in this game, since there are no characters and no story. But there are some SERIOUSLY CUTE animals…. A llama in a banana costume, a nine tails in a barista costume, and many more. They’re over the top, creative, cute, zany, and limited edition too which makes me want to play to collect em all (like pokemon). The animals are really the heart and soul of the game. I think they could add a feature similar to pokemini, lineplay, or cocoplay though where you have a human avatar representing yourself and get to dress her/him and collect outfits from the gacha. I also think they could open up inter-species breeding. (maybe it unlocks at a higher level, I only began playing last week), to offer a wider range of pets. Right now it’s pretty specific, pets that look the same like a bearded pig and boar can’t breed with each other even or a Black cow and a Dairy Cow, when it seems like breeding them should be possible. So I deducted a point there.

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js //

Customization: 7/10 You can customize where you place your buildings and which animals you have on exhibit in your zoo. However, there’s little to do to customize the animals themselves. You can purchase “special effects” like rose petals or other things to place around your animals, but the effects available for purchase are limited (can count on one hand). And as mentioned above they’re missing out on further customization by neglecting to have human avatars, outfit gachas, or even outfits or accessories for the animals. Most of all though, I think the game could be more customizeable by allowing us to set different features within our shops; think of the old retro Rollercoaster Tycoon game for Sega Genesis, you could choose how salty your food was, how much ice was in your fountain drinks, etc. Finding the right balance between profit and happy customers. I think a feature like that brought to Tiny Farm could really make it shine and differentiate itself from its competition. But the buildings are upgradeable which unlocks more profits and bonuses which is a nice touch. I just would like to see them take customization a step or two further.

Kawaiiness (Cuteness): 10/10 – This is the cutest little farming game I’ve ever seen, the pets are so adorable. The fact that there are so many different animals, and especially lots of in game events with limited time animals makes it even more adorable. I would play this any day compared to farmville or hay day.

Music: 8/10 Cute and catchy music that is repetitive but does not get annoying

Graphics: 10/10 The graphics are “pixel” style and have a cute retro feel. The buildings are brightly colored and there’s a lot of different styles of pets and buildings to choose from.

Performance: 10/10 I have not experienced a game crash or any lag while playing on my old Ipad 2 (before Air designations). I have only been playing for a week though so that may change as my farm grows and more buildings/animals are packed onto my screen (taking more resources to display).

Overall: 72/90 80% B- “Very Good Game for Girls”
