Today we are taking a look at HuniePop which is a real Kickstarter success story. This is a very intriguing game, not just because of the hot anime girls. It is because this is a game that is a mixture of dating sim, puzzle and it then has some RPG elements sprinkled over the top of it.
Talk To Me Girl!
The dating sim portion of HuniePop on the surface seems way more simplistic than what other games go for, but I feel this works in its favor. You pick a girl that you want to talk to and you will have a series of questions that you can ask her. You can ask her out on a date, be flirty or you can cut straight to the chase and get a little….. let’s just say naughty! The story of the game is quite fun. You are a person who is just hopeless with the ladies and a magical love fairy called Kyu decides to help you out! I found this to be a lot of fun and she does come in handy when you are trying to impress the eight ladies that the game has to offer.
This Is Very Puzzling
What I like about HuniePop is that it is more than just a dating sim/visual novel style game. It is far more interacting than most. It also has a match-three puzzle game in here too. This is way more addictive than you would think. You can use date gifts, special moves and so on to help you with this and this is where the RPG elements come into play. It would have been so easy for them to tack on a basic puzzle game here, but they went all out and in all honesty, it is one of the more fun match three style games that I have played over the years.
So Much To See And Do
I think that HuniePop is stacked (not just in the chest department) with content. There are hidden girls for you to find and a ton of items that you can get to try and make the ladies like you. You can give them gifts, drink food and accessories to try and win their favor. Also, there is a day and night cycle along with various locations in the game. You may think that this is just purely cosmetic, but it actually can have an effect on the gameplay. For example, if you are in the right place, you can give her alcohol to make the conversation a little different. Of course, a game like this lets you customize the girls and there are a ton of different outfits and hairstyles that you can use if that is your thing. I actually liked how easy they made the customization aspect of the game. There are also these high quality and sexy photos that you can collect as you play the game. While you may start out just to see the hot girls, it is actually quite addictive trying to get all of these.
HuniePop is one of the better games in this genre I have had the pleasure to play. While the story is fun, it is way more interacting than most other dating sims that I have come across over the years. I think it is fun, cheeky and it has a ton of things for you to buy and collect. It is also far more addictive than you would think. If you do not like how barebones most dating sims are in the gameplay department, HuniePop is well worth checking out.
