Ghost Hunter Vena
Ghost hunting is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you're thinking about some sexy games. But developer Vesmug managed to pull this one out, but after all, he's already got some experience. Having made Xenotake in the past, they earned a reasonable number of followers that were eager to see what they could come up with next. After all, it was a great original title, with solid gameplay and all that, so they've already settled that they know how to make a game. So, is Ghost Hunter Vena as good as Xenotake? Well, let's talk about it.
The story in Ghost Hunter Vena is not the greatest thing in the world but it works. Three students make a bet whether or not a nearby mansion is haunted. And their teacher overhears them and actually joins them in the experiment. The four of them meet at the mansion at night, but as you’d expect, things turn out wrong really fast. Vena is left completely on her own in a room, completely alone except for a sentient hand. Hand will accompany Vena as she explores and tries to find her friends and a way out of the mansion.
A side-scrolling "adventure"
In H games, it's important to find a balance between the sex scenes and the actual gameplay. In the case of Ghost Hunter Vena, getting attacked is the shortest way to access a lot of different H scenes. As you explore. Hand is the only thing keeping the evil ghosts at bay, but it can only do so much, so Vena must do her best to help herself too. If a ghost catches you they will rip Vena's clothing and start getting more "into her" if-you-know-what-I-mean. You can mash some buttons to help her escape from the ghosts, but these trigger most of the varied sex scenes you'll find yourself getting caught on purpose more often than not.
The mansion is a really complicated place, and most corridors are filled with all kinds of ghosts. Of course, you can't finish the game getting caught all over again by ghosts all the time, so you actually have some ways to counter them. But even though the map is complicated, what makes the game tougher is that the ghosts and Vena occupy a big portion of the screen. So it's pretty hard to avoid getting hit by enemies, and sometimes there is more than one enemy on screen at the same time.
You could say that Ghost Hunter Vena goes for a traditional way of making a 2D side-scrolling H game, and you’d be right in that. But that doesn’t mean it’s just some old H games, it actually allows you to defend yourself. The gameplay can be pretty hard if you play it in hard mode too, so that’s great if you’re looking for a challenge in an H game.
One of the issues is that it can become repetitive and monotone in no time. In some cases when there is more than one enemy on screen at the same time it can be annoying how they will almost always hit you no matter what. Now, the story is alright, it’s not overly complicated and it just works. However, the dialogues can be too long sometimes, as they seem to go on forever in some scenes. This can kill the pacing of the game.
One thing's for sure, this is quite possibly the least efficient ghost hunting ever. But there are a lot of fetishes covered up in this game so that's great. And while the art is not the best, it works out in the context here. In the end, it's great that they've covered a lot of fetishes, but it does get repetitive and quite boring real fast.
