SMASH LEGENDS

4.5

Hey kid! We're reviewing another game again!

Again?! Two reviews in a week? That's insane Sei!

Yeah kid, we're on a roll!

Aight! Smash Legends...

Sounds familiar? This game is like Smash Bros got League of Legends drunk and they made a baby.
It's a MOBA like game with Smash Bros elements on it.

Explain how is the game fun Sei!

Alright alright... Ever found yourself bored and scrolling at a social media site then found an ad on this game? Well, me too! I was enticed with the ad looking so cartoony and smooth so I've decided to give it a whirl. I was greeted with a nice opening screen and a tutorial. But hey! At least the game doesn't block you from checking the settings. [厲害]
Now to explain why is it fun, while the game will show you the things to check, it really is straight to the point. Buttons are laid out the for you to explore what does it do (If you don't wanna read the character's skill and stuff) and lets you experiment on it.

You see, one of the good things you can experience on games is being able to learn from it by exploring.
You have this character, his skill swings his sword hard! I should try this on my enemies right?! KABOOSH! OMG! They're flying! Oh! another button just showed up! What does it do? It's making me spin! Very good AoE damage! How about I use this spinning with the hard slash earlier? [白眼] OMG! Enemies are now out of the ring! There is a jump button?! How about I jump and attack? How about I jump and use the hard slash? There is so much potential to do things and try to outplay enemies with this! This is fun! [哇噻]

Looks like you really had fun Sei! Anything that is worth noting? [賣萌]

Hmmm. Graphics looks fresh and the game is quite rewarding. Matches are quite short and very fast paced.
The game really is quite simple and just going for a straight up fun that you kind of really don't need to go deeper on it.

Have you had any problems with it Sei?

On my experience, there are times that the game is having high latencies. Nothing that destroys the gameplay. It's quite rare to be honest.

How about the balance Sei?

I don't think I talk much about balance but if ever you played this game and manage to have Hooks? (character)
Use her. You will just stand there and just pew pew pew pew and win the game. [厲害]
Red is quite weak in my opinion and Witch Queen is a really nice support if there is a hard hitter on the team.

Is the game worth trying Sei?

Don't let my review force you to play this. But I really can say that this didn't waste my time downloading it. Even made my Arknights review to be pushed back. lol [開心]

Warau Ars Notoria

3.8

Bet ya downloaded it because they look like the characters from Re:Zero? [怪笑]

From the makers of really good weeb stuff merchandise that you will pour tons of money into, comes a game where you will also pour a lot of money into.

Warau Ars Notoria.

Kid! You're up!

Eh? Sei? But I just do the questions stuff when we review games...

Yep, Let's go straight to the point and ask me about the gacha.

What? Uhhmm.. ehh.. ok. [汗顏] How's the gacha Sei?

I'm glad you asked kid! Because this game will slap the gacha at you right from the start! Makes it easy if you're the type that creates multiple accounts just to have the good start.
As for the stuff you need for pulling? (Rubies) It's quite easy to get and pulls are quite cheap.
Now, the question how are the pulls? Well.... On these kind of games you want waifus right? You're in luck! Because this game won't give you your waifu that easily! [賣萌]
In easier words, it's a gacha hell. You'll just receive support cards most of the time. [大哭]

As for graphics and art? It's good.
You'll get what you've clicked for.
Re:zero looking art, some looks like from SAO, some even looks like from oni chichi [怪笑] idk.
Since you'd be getting tons of support cards anyway, you can bask yourself with a lot of art.


Is the game worth trying Sei?

Hmmm.. Well, it's a chill game, if you're looking for some idle fun? Yes. it's good.
With tons of support cards, you can have somekind of building strategies on the game if you can read JP. [怪笑]

There you go! Warai... errr Warau Ars Notoria.
Simple idle gacha game that surely won't make you laugh.

NieR Re[in]carnation

3.8

Do you like walking but can't because of this pandemic? Well fret not because we're here to introduce the Walking Simulator 3000! [發困]
Alright alright... Jeez! Before I someone attack me, Let me straighten this up and just say:

NIER REINCARNATION IS NOT FOR EVERYONE.

Got that? You can stop reading there if you don't like reading big slabs of texts.

I really never have played any NieR game and never really bothered downloading it on my PC because I don't have a lot of time but when I saw that it will have a game for smartphone? I got excited! Finally! A NieR game I can try even though I'm most of the time busy! [開心]
I've waited for it... waited and waited until it came here at QooApp. I've even downloaded it at first day of release!
But I got disappointment. It's not an action RPG... It's a walkathon with a turn-based thing which is automatic that you can just also mistake this as an idle game! Then I've decided to just postpone playing and postpone writing a review.

So why I've decided to write a review to this game?
While I'm still influenced with my subjective views, I really want to proceed and look at a different angle on this game. Maybe I'll see something. Maybe there is something I can try on this one.
I've played it again and gave it a whirl. I've noticed something. It's a story driven game! Cutscenes, dialogues, a bunch of texts to read and conversations all are meant for the game to tell you something! Have I enjoyed it? Nope. But don't get me wrong. It's just that I can't read Japanese but hey at least I can understand some of that little ghost's monolog which by the way... gives a lot of Ara ara energy if you know what I mean. [厲害]

So yep, Can't read JP so let's go past that. Let's see... Graphics! [開心] Boy oh boy! This game have some really nice character models and particle effects! Movements are also quite nice and have some heft to it which really goes well with the attack particle effects. It's quite unexplainable.
Now let's go with the environment. While I don't expect a vibrant one, I do expect it to be quite nice and to be honest? While the lighting is quite good, object polygons and terrain tesselation is like from a PS2 to PS3 era. It's not the best but it's good. [耍帥]

Sound? Saying that it's good is an understatement. Tunes are really freaking nice! Just stop and listen on some parts if you have time and you might call this game a walking with really nice tunes and ara ara ghost simulator 3000! Opps! Just kidding. [厲害]

And of course! It's a mobile game! There's our all time favorite! The gacha. Yep, you've read that right! Gacha.
While I still don't get why you would need it on a game that is just pure story, It still is good if you can manage to get your favorite characters from the NieR series and have them beat those gate monsters thing.
Also worth noting that while this is a gacha, grinding your purple stuff on this game is quite fast. It's rewarding and doesn't seem to need you to do much of pulling. A plus points I must say. [開心]

Gameplay? There is nothing much really. While the game gives you a false freedom of being able to do something by going on different directions or moving your character while in a battle, it really wasn't enough. Let's just say that it's too linear. It's not bad. It's a story driven game afterall.

NieR Reincarnation still is a game. While It won't live to your expectations of being the same as the other NieR games, it still is a game worth checking out. If you are fluent on Japanese? Try it. I really think that the story is intriguing based on the graphical cues it gives and who knows? You might want more from this game. [厲害]

Touché! Mr. Pussycat!
If you're wondering where did that came from, It's from a Tom and Jerry episode wherein they were musketeers.

Tom and Jerry... So nostalgic. One of the cartoons that gave fun on my childhood. This is why I've decided to download this and gave this a try. [賣萌]

I know I should have written my Arknights review first but I really am not feeling it. lol. [不滿]

As for the game, it's just like Friday The 13th or Dead By Daylight in a sense. You'll just have to knock the humans out and hang them but in this game instead of being a hunter and just a regular human, you'll either be a cat or a mouse! And since this is a Tom and Jerry game which supposedly targets kids, it doesn't have the blood and gore that the other two games I've mentioned above. You'll have your chase game as light-hearted possible.

So what are you going to see on this game? If you're already a grown up then you'll probably be nostalgic with the characters. The old and classic, Tom and Jerry, Tuffy, Tootsie, Butch, Spike and many more! Some of them might probably not be available as playable character yet though. At least based on what I've already seen on my playthrough.
All of them are also drawn good! Design is overall good! Although they are the characters that looked modernized.
What I mean is that they're like new iterations of the characters I have loved. I'm not that bothered much but maybe some might find the old designs more appealing. [厲害]

Have I enjoyed playing the game? I'll say to a certain extent. I really love the concept of being on one the characters' shoes but I kinda of feel like I'm not really in control with them. Let's just say there is somekind of unexplainable latency when controlling them. While the animations of each characters are nice looking, it really feels like you're controlling a floating paper with a wind from a cardboard panel. It feels floaty.
I guess it's because it's cartoon? Maybe I'm just really into physics and games having a certain weight and feel to it.
Despite that, I still find the game enjoyable especially when I'm the chaser! I just think that it's more fun to be one. [開心]

Other aspects? While a mobile game has to be designed to have somekind of what I call "cash grab" on it, this game doesn't feel like you need to spend any real kaching. Unless you really want to have an specific character, it's not really much game breaking not to have them.
Although each characters or Tom and Jerry's different iterations have different set of skill which makes it feel new when playing.
The game also have skins! Aside from having multiple same character iterations which feels weird but it's there.
Perks! Which can improve your favorite character's chances on winning the game.
And last but not the least, game modes... I just really played the casual and parkour ones because ranked play have time slots on it. Weird for a ranked play to have time slots. [不滿] Was it limiting kids on playing the game too much? I don't really know... But I'm not available on those time slots soooo no ranked for me. [大哭]

And that's it! Tom and Jerry: Chase.
A light-hearted hunting game that can give a nostalgic feel for older people on this cartoon because it's Tom and Jerry. [厲害]

Uhmmm since this is not a game, I'll just keep this short and sweet.

Discord helped me to get over my depression. Kind of weird but I guess I got lucky to have decent friends on this platform.

But objectively? This chat app really offers a lot without paying. Of course you can always pay for the so called nitro to "boost" your experience.

10/10 lel [厲害]

Uma Musume: Pretty Derby

4.2

Bang Dream! Girls Band Party!

Sei!!! No! It's not bandori! [發火]

Hehe.. yeah but it kinda sounds like that at the start screen. [開心] Alright alright...

Uma Musume! Pretty Derby! [賣萌]

You know what's better than racing horses? 🐴
You've got it right! Racing horse girls!
You know what's better than idols?

Let me guess Sei, racing idol horse girls. [發困]

You gosh darn right about that kid! [開心]

If you've watched the anime before you either be a fan of this title or an upcoming murder victim (just kidding) [開心].
It really has this charm or something new on it. We already know about cat girls or dog girls or bunny girls and they really are quite famous on anime everywhere but horse girls?! HORSE GIRLS?! Get my money as I throw them at my screen Cygames! I'll take your entire stock!

Kidding aside, it just really stirred my heart for their unexpected cuteness.

What about the game Sei?

Oh right! Hehehe.. well, as expected, Cygames delivered it well. It really is close to the anime and had given quite considerable fun. There might be some a bit of drawbacks but who cares?! Waifus for everyone! [開心][開心][開心]

Let's start with the drawbacks Sei!

Hmmm.. that's kind of weird but a change of pace is nice.
Well, we all know we're playing this with smartphones now and newer models tend to not have buttons or capacitive buttons on it. Playing this game on such is quite a bit annoying when trying to quit the game as it will also tap the game's race button. What I mean is that the on-screen phone controls are hovering on the game menu and thus messing with the back button. It's just a simple one though nothing much to be irritated really. [委屈]

There is not much of a gameplay to explore on this one.
We all know the training for URA and using different kinds of horse girls brings different kinds of difficulty on training. But that's it! Races are just scenes you can either watch or skip since the outcome really is predetermined. You can change it bit when you lose if you try to reset but there's really nothing much on it as you play along. You can always say that there's a story there but would you really even try to read it all? Like for example you're trying to keep using Daiwa Scarlet multiple times on URA, would you really read them again? To me, the races on this game are only just there at the start to make you feel excited and will lose the dopamine shot it will give you after multiple playthroughs.

Lastly is that for some reason, the carrot gems are quite harder to gain than other gacha games. At least that is what I feel about it. Getting them is quite slow. Unlike on priconne where you can get them quite on a faster rate. Maybe it's just me... [不滿]
It's not much of a drawback really I'm just not used on being bombarded with rewards lol.

Wow Sei... does this mean we won't be recommending this game? [大哭]

Are you kidding?! [發火] A game should be tried by everyone who is interested! And for someone that is a fan of Uma Musume and cute girls? I would really recommend trying this game!

But Sei, The gameplay! The gameplay!!! [大哭][大哭][大哭]

I know kid.. but there's more on this game than the URA part of it.
If you can read japanese text, the game really is story-driven. You can read all of the story of each horse girl! See them react, interact, and emote from these stories. And for me?! It's like a blessing! Cute horse girls' cute interaction with each other? Together with the nice art this game has? Truly is a nice feeling. [色色]

I have already said cute horse girls right?! Yes! girls! lots of them! From goth looking or cool looking to simple to princess looking to lolis to flats to mountains [怪笑] and to moderate ones, you name it! You'll have it! [開心] It's really good for people who likes collecting. Got to have em all [厲害]
This also is good for the fans of the title as they collect the girls, they're also bound to know more about them and those really are valuable information! [厲害]

Aside from collecting and having info about the girls, you really will get the chance to train them on this game. Yes it's the part of the URA right? But Training your own horse girl? The feeling is nice. You take pride whenever you've done the right preparation on races and also be sad if they've lost. But we all know that it's not the horse girl's fault. It's your fault! [厲害] Kidding aside? Training them all is still fun.

Music is quite catchy and lively too! Sometimes I just end up listening to the menu tunes and also the idol horse girl presentations. You got that right! They are also idols!
They sing and dance on end of the races!
It's really bright, cheerful looking and really fun to watch!
You might even start to try to remember some of the songs. [厲害]

There is also this PvP! [開心]
Yep! Although there really nothing much on it but just rank comparison that is based your horse training.

Ok Sei, I guess this is worth trying at least?

Well, yes. I know it's quite an excitement killer right? But the game is still new and probably, they will make more content and adjustments on it.
it's just I feel that your influence on the horse girls on the game are quite lacking. Yes, training them is quite fun but it doesn't have the feel like it's on the anime where the interaction of the character to another affects the outcomes. I might not just be explaining it enough but I'm just saying that there's really should be more than just training really.
I guess it should be quantitative and not based on feelings and stuff right? Well, I'm leaving it to Cygames to figure it out. [厲害]

Blue Archive

4.5

Wake up kid! We're gonna write our 30th game review!
[發火]

Eh? Yeah yeah. alright... What are we in for anyway Sei? [睡覺]

Blue Archive! The one with that cute innocent looking girl as the icon! [開心]

Jeez... alright. Let's start Sei.

You've been wandering at qooapp, looking for games to play when you've suddenly saw this cute anime girl... you've read the title and it says "Blue Archive".
You've told yourself: "This looks interesting!" and proceeded to download the game.
Is that what happened to you? Well, if it is then we're the same! Because I'm a sucker for cute anime girls. [開心]

So what do we have on this game Sei?

Oh! Yes! I've said it earlier. Cute anime girls.
Angelic anime girls. And not just because they're too cute. It's also because each of them have halo! [賣萌]
All of them! Maji Tenshi! [開心]

But objectively? Yostar or whoever did all of the character design on this really have done well.
The game have this really "brand new" feel to it. Everything feels popping and fresh and it really attracts you as you navigate through the menu, the story, the gacha, everything that you'll probably will see on the interface level of the game really pops!
I know it's not the game itself but it really is the one of the things that I have noticed. It really is well-made.

How about the gameplay Sei? [汗顏]

Well... we used to play priconne (Princess Connect) before right? It kinda is like that. But....
Wait for it...
In 3D! [開心]
Everything is better in 3D! Just kidding. [開心]
They also have guns! Lots of them! Because FREEEEDOOOMM! [開心][開心][開心]
But in seriousness, the gameplay feels like priconne with a mix of also a Yostar game, Arknights.
It really just an auto game while you just tap the character portrait for them to perform their special move with an added Arknights twist of somekind of energy bar so you wouldn't be able to spam them. (Just correct me on this term lol)
What's that? The auto will automatically do the special move for you without tapping?
Yes! yes! But does anybody really play at full auto anyway? I guess if you kind of want to not have much of interaction on the game and your girls OP, just go. [厲害]
Other worth note-taking thing on the game is the visual novel like aspect that shows how well-made the art is and kind of a breath of fresh air on the action-packed stuff this has. It will also give you a chance to try other characters aside from the ones you have. Real nice if you ask me.


How about the gacha Sei?

Ah... gacha... I haven't really have read about the rates but as usual for JP gachas, you won't really have pity pulls on this one. But it doesn't matter really... You remembered that I've said it's like priconne? It's because..
Introducing! The best system you'll ever get on a gacha game! (joking) Whale tears! [賣萌]
Whale tears is an specialized gem that can be used to buy at the whale shop for the character fragments. This way, you can farm for the waif- *ahem* angel student you want.

Note: Student-Teacher relationship is prohibited.

And yes, I forgot to tell that you're kind of a teacher here.
Also they can pronounce your name on the game.

Really Sei?! [驚訝]

Yep, if you have written a Japanese name. [開心]
I really haven't tried it. But that's what my friends have said. So... I just believed them.
Yes, I have friends. [發困]

Any final notes Sei?

Final notes eh? Well, the game is fun. But in all honesty? It will bore you after a lot of stages. One thing that could make it fresh is you having a lot a team setup to shuffle from.
The game is rewarding for beginners as a lot of mobile games are but I really see that it will really come to the point where you'll be bored. Well, the game is quite young and surely, improvements and events will come.
Just try to enjoy yourself on the Arknights like aspect of the game wherein you can also strategize based on your team composition. If you enjoy games like that? This game surely will fit you. [微笑]

Epic Conquest 2

4.0

Yo kid! Imma review this game called Epic Conquest 2! You up? [不滿]

2? Have you played the first one, Sei? [汗顏]

Nope. Doesn't matter! I'm still going to write one. [開心]

Aight! You might be just scrolling on Google Play or Qooapp looking for new games to play and you saw this title. Epic Conquest 2... 2?! This means there's a first one right? Must be a good game to get a sequel.
You've downloaded, wait for it to install, and started it right away since you're quite excited with the new game. [開心]

The start menu screen shows up. It looks so good and it feels so clean with some Final Fantasy-esque vibe on it.
You feel more excitement and you tapped it to start new game.

What's this?! The graphics looks like...
Yep, it's not impressive really it kind of feels like a PS2 game with it's graphics even you set it on the highest possible setting. [大哭]
But hey! At least you can set the game to 144 FPS if your phone's screen can refresh at 144 hz! Brrrrrrrrrr! [開心]

So you gave the game a chance. You've followed with the story together with it's tons of amount of dialog and cutscenes till you finally reach the time where you can control your character.
Then you'll yell: "This is disappointing!" [發火]
Just kidding, the controls are nothing special really and if I'm to be honest, it's quite clunky. Animation timings need some work so it could match the commands you're tapping into. If I'm gonna describr this with just anything? The controls feels sticky and slippery at the same time. It doesn't make sense really but it is what is. [微笑]

Now you're on an adventure! You've gone out of town to explore and with every action RPGs, slay some monsters! [開心]
Till the game disappoints you again with the combat. I don't mind the slow attacks of the main character really but the enemies? Their attack cues doesn't feel like it exist! There's a dodge button for a reason but how can you dodge properly if you don't even know whether the enemy will attack or not?
There are also times where the enemies do not respond (lucky [開心]) or times where you don't see them on your screen yet they will just all of the sudden will ram you.
But then again, all you can just do is git gud. [厲害]

Wow Sei! Do you hate the game? [無語]

Not at all kid, in fact, I love the game. The points above are the things that I think a game should be polished on objectively and as I played this game? I just got used to it that I saw myself not being able to keep in check of the time because I enjoyed it so much.
Why do I enjoy this? Because of what the game gives you the feel of being there and able to grow. What I mean, I can set my own stats not limited by classes growth like on other RPGs. Gather materials for equipment strengthening, level up my skills by using them and not by leveling up! There is just a sense of growth that I really like on this game. [微笑]

Is that it Sei? [汗顏]

Oh! Of course I really like how the story flows and also the interaction among the characters. The main character's premise kind of feels like the warrior class story on Ys:Origin (I won't elaborate) but it still have it's own unique take on it. With those it really made playing this more enjoyable.

Can I recommend the game? Yes! [開心]
Epic Conquest 2 is a game that you'll keep on wanting to play. It's not the best on all departments and still have very noticeable yet not game breaking bugs but it will definitely make you want it as you play along. Try it. [厲害]

Phantom Rose Scarlet

4.2

Fear not the dark itself, but what may lurk within it.

TF u saying Sei?! [發火]

*Slaps kid* Shut up! I kinda want to spew something deep on a game review. Besides, this game kind of have the same vibe with the quote I've provided. [厲害]

Phantom Rose Scarlet... When I first saw this game, I've been reminded of Night of the Full Moon game and have thought to myself: "A card battle thingy eh? Maybe I should give this a whim?"

So I've downloaded it and let it stay on my phone.
A week later, I was able to play it. The game was quite easy to learn. I could say it's easier to learn than Night of the Full Moon (NFM) not because it's simpler, but because (with my current experience) it doesn't have classes which gives advatages or disadvantages. You only have your card deck to build, dissolve the extra cards and continue on your journey.

As I've said, this game is easier to learn but this is also a bit harder, if not much, to strategize than NFM.
You see, on NFM, if you've already mastered how to use your class properly and get the right cards along the journey, you're already pretty much OP.
On this game, since there are no classes to take advantage of, you'll pretty much just keep strategizing with your current deck and make it work.
Some enemies are also quite resistant of your current strategy or deck via having counters on your cards and etc.

Should they try the game Sei? [白眼]

Well, the game is very straightforward so it should be easy to get in to. But like NFM, it's a casual game. You'll just probably play this game just to pass time and it's also a good game at that.

I won't compare the graphics with the other game. It's unfair but I'm seeing that there will be improvements on this game one day.

Elona

3.2

This game.... For my comeback on reviewing stuff?

Let's see...
Cute graphics?
Ok BG Music?
Classes?
Races?
Customization?

Those are the good stuff you'll be able to see on a really good RPGs out there. But what does this game lack?

Three things.
Good controls, good animations and a decent story.
2D games can have good animations and good controls and with this game? It's making it very hard to be loved.
And the story? It's like it's not there. But maybe there's really no story? What a waste of background story on each classes then. [發困]

I really like the graphic style on this game but If I'm going to play a top-down 2D RPG again? Maybe I'll try Guardian Tales. [厲害]

Sei! Sei! Sei! Let's write a review about this new Bandori game! [怪笑]

Another one ehh.. [汗顏] What's the title?

Please Don't Bring Me Back to Reality! Sinfonia Stage. [開心]

Oh! I've played it already.

*Slaps kid* What is that for Sei?! [發火]

It's not like Bandori. Ok, listen here, I won't mention the title anymore because it's absurdly long but the game is not like Bandori. Shocking right? All of these JP Rhythm games I've played followed the same format yet this one strayed a bit out of it. How you may ask?

Introducing! The Hug mode! [賣萌] For people that like to play rhythm games but are lazy to tap their screens! Hug mode will just let your fingers stay pressed on the screen as you slide it along just to hit the notes. Kinda like Arcaea but more simplified.
Oh! For added bonus? Hug mode makes your thumbs hotter than the sun on the highest difficulty of songs! Nifty hand warmers! Just kidding. [開心]

It als has Pick Mode! Which is your boring, regular, bandori-like style of gameplay. [睡覺]

So what makes this different from the other games Sei? Of course aside from the hug mode.

Well, This is just based on my experience but I'll list it here.
1. It doesn't have the chibi talk stuff on the background on menu screen.
2. The gameplay screen is kind of the same except when your waifus react on the song, it doesn't distract you that much. Which is a good thing.
3. Waifus have different art styles. Probably because it's from dengeki bunko illustrators? It also makes them distinguishable unlike on some idol games.
4. Some fantasy isekai feel to it. You have magic circles, cat girls, magic girls, and elves? It's something new.

So how was your overall gameplay Sei?

As usual on games, beginners are greeted with tons of rewards so there is nothing new there. Although, it is worth note taking that menu navigation, song selection screen, the gameplay stage, and the art is really refreshing compared to the ones I've already played. Also worth note taking that this game also runs the worst! [發火]
You've read that right! It runs the worst on my device. This is a Snapdragon 865 and Bandori runs perfectly even with 2D MV so I'm not sure what was the problem really. I even waited for this new update before I write a review to see if it will get fixed.

I can't really say I've enjoyed the overall gameplay because it stutters a lot! It's a shame because I really like some of the songs here. [大哭]

That's it! The game proposes a different style of gameplay for JP Waifu rhythm games which is up to you if you will play it that way. I honestly just used Pick mode because as I've said, hug mode makes my thumbs really hot and both of it stutters anyway so subjectively, it's not an enjoyable experience. But please do try it! Others are able to play the game well. Maybe it will also do well on yours. [害羞]

Shumi de HERO o yatteiru mono da.
or
Mo daijoubu! Naze tte? Watashi ga kita!

[開心][開心][開心]

If you know those lines, congratulations! You've watched good anime! [開心]

Alright! Super Action Hero or SAH in short.
Seriously, I'm not that excited about this game when I last saw it because the one released from 2012 kind of different from the first game.

Let me tell ya a bit of a story kids.
Back when I was a little kid, I used to play on my mother's phone. Back then, java games are a hit and Super Action Hero really made me drain the phone's battery.
Despite being scolded, I still continue playing games with it.
You will be like: "Couldn't they just take away the phone from you?" Hahaha. [開心] I know right? But they don't. I guess they kind of like it when they see me having fun.

So what's with the java version of Super Action Hero? It's just straightforward. Do your mission, beat all the other guys up, or do speed runs. That's it! However when Com2uS decided to make a new one way back primitive Android days, it was not like the old one I used to enjoy. The combat is slow and it just really don't have the charm of the old game. I just dropped it and never looked back. Maybe that's just the young me. I don't know whether I would like it if I would get to play it again at this time. [委屈]

Now this new version of Super Action Hero? It Feels like the Java version! Straightforward, easy controls, just do the mission and that's it! Also, really improved graphics! [開心]

2020 never fails to surprise. lol.

Although, the difference of this game from the java version is probably the pay-2-win aspects of this game.
Bear with me on this one but it might be the same core gameplay from its roots but there are now stats. Stats which you can improve with masks which you can buy with coins which can also be bought with real money.
And coins are also used for upgrading the skills which is hard if you don't have enough. Don't get me started with the energy system too! But we all know how to deal with it. I guess most mobile game players do? [厲害]

Was that game breaking? No. But it's good to point out the difference from the java version and what should the to be players of the game expect from it.

It might not be enjoyable but if you really want to progress on this game, You need to watch a lot of ads. Although the game gives you the option and doesn't blatantly spam you with ads, the things from the old game surely will be missed. Wherein there are no ads and progress wouldn't be stopped with stats.

Would I recommend it? Well, if you're looking for some nostalgia (if you've played the old version) or some casual action game you can play with one hand? This game will not disappoint. [厲害]

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

4.0

Why are we gonna review this game Sei? [發困]

Well, It's just we have nothing better to do as of now kid. [厲害]

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang or MLBB. When you hear or read that name what comes to your mind? Was it League of Legends? Was the "Bang Bang" awkward?. Well, those are quite about right.
There was nothing original on this game really. All of it was a hodgepodge of good things you can get from other MOBAs out there.

But what is wrong with that right? As long as it works.
Plus, original is hard to do these days. Copying something, making it work and better for your platform is a good thing. It's efficient, it works, it gets players have the same familiarity with the other games.

If we're going to rate the game from that, it is just being subjective and surely will score poorly. [不滿]

Now, we're going to look at the game wants to achieve. We already know that it's a mix of copied stuff, some network related problems, possible bad matchmaking and stuff. But what people seem to forget is it aims to be a MOBA for your phone. For you to play anywhere and anytime. But also be able to play even with time constraints due to games being relatively short.

Despite all of the backlash the game receives, it just works. Think of this this way, you always lose due to bad teammates right? Or there were days that there are high pings despite your net looks good on your perspective. But even despite all of the things said above, you still comeback and play then loathe it again and again. Why? Because it just works. The gameplay works and it's short, sweet, and easy.

This truly achieves the goal of being a MOBA for a mobile phone. Short enough to enjoy more games and easy enough to even let casuals to enjoy it also.

But wouldn't that defeat the purpose of being a MOBA Sei? Because it's easy? [暈]

Not necessarily, as I've already pointed out, it's a MOBA for your phone that is designed to be easy because not all people have PCs to play MOBA but all people have phones even the casuals. The easiness of learning this game still doesn't take away everything what could be fun. It is still skill-based and thus rankings exists.

But match-making sucks in here Sei! [發火]

I wouldn't really call it like that. You see, every game is coded and everything can only be done with something that is quantifiable.
You, being matched with bad players of the same rank is just being how the system works. You can't really control that.

How about the network? [汗顏]

In my experience, I just switch ISPs whenever I have high pings. Plus that network boost feature really works if you're on wifi and a different ISP data.

Would you recommend this game? [為什麼]

Anyone is free to join this rabbit hole. [開心]
But I can recommend this game for new people that is exploring MOBA. It's fast, it's easy to learn but takes time to be really good at.

For some reason, I have to download this game because the English version of the game is not available yet on Qooapp. [發火]

TENSAI !!!!! [開心] And Sakuragi dunks the ball!

I grew up knowing Slam Dunk. I just know about it and only watched 1 episode of it from the television. It's not that I'm not a fan. I'm just most of the time prohibited to watch anime or cartoons on TV. [大哭]

Jokes on my parents, I still became a weeb. lol [開心]

Come on Sei! No one cares! Make it fast! [睡覺]

Shut up kid! Alright! To the review it is! [發火]

SLAM DUNK Mobile game is more of a casual basketball game rather than a competitive one like a 2K basketball.
I mean, what do you expect right? It's an anime game with basketball. Plus the game's character design are chibis so it's kind of hard to take seriously.

That's where you're gonna be bamboozled! It's like Brawlstars. Just chibi, toony characters that just do their thing which makes you not notice it and you will keep seeing it and will decide to download.
At first, you're like: "OMG, this is sooo boring. Is this it?" Then you will came to know the game's mechanics, the techniques, skill and growth system of the game. Every character has a chance of growth and skill set for winning games which which gives a kind of RPG feel on how you make your character strong or the best of them all.

Can you really make your favorite character the best and all-time scoring genius on this game? Probably or probably not. Why? Because there are characters that might be a better scorer than your fave character overall. It's really up to you how you will handle those kind of characters. But all I can say is the growth system makes you have a fighting chance until you can't make your character grow because you don't have resources. Where to get the resources?! Either at gacha or at the shop! Which you could use your REAL MONEY or not. Up to you. [厲害]

So, is this a pay to win game Sei?

Well, paying for stuff on this will surely get you go up the ranks faster than free to play guys. But you don't need to pay. As I've said, the game has growth system and you just need to be diligent and improve your fave character/s. Plus! The game is very rewarding! Gives you a lot of stuff on just playing the game. [厲害] I even made my Sakuragi A rank by just playing. [開心]

How about the story Sei?

Ahh.. The story. I haven't watched the anime so I'm not familiar with it yet and I haven't bothered on it that much yet. But on what I've experienced so far, the story is light and has its humor on some parts. The visual-novel touch that they've made on this despite it being looking like just the ones on anime episode is quite amusing. Makes you have a feel that you have some interaction on the story despite there will be really no changes.

How about the game modes Sei?

So there is just a normal 3v3, a ranked game and a 5v5 which is locked on level 19 which also is bummer because the game wants you to be invested on it before you experience the full of it. Was it bad? No. I was able to enjoy the game and won't probably won't feel bored till level 19. [色色]

Since it's chibi characters, what can you say about the gameplay?

You might need to get to be used on this game first before you can properly enjoy it. It's like food. It's an acquired taste.
All I can notice and also can serve as a warning for those who want to try the game is it's skill-based. Not just your own skills but also your character's skill. It's on a way on how you're going to use your character's skills to an advantage.
Also, ball release doesn't matter on this game because it's character's skill based and stat base. Unlike NBA games where I can make a center shoot a ball, this game will just base everything on the character's skill and stat. It's not a bad thing but ball release is kind of an expectation for basketball games.

Would you recommend this game?

Yes! It's enjoyable but it might not be for everyone. There is a bit of learning curve and getting used to on this game but once passed, it's enjoyable. [厲害] Also, the music! It's a classic. It's good they've added the soundtrack of the anime for this game. It would make the fans of the series happy but also make you stay on menu for some tunes. [開心]

Custom Cast

4.3

Sometimes, you want to be a cute anime girl but there is no chance to be one because:

1. You're a boy or a man
2. You're not cute [不滿]
3. Area 51 is hiding the anime girl transformation tech on their lab and refuse to give it to anyone.

But what about being a virtual cute anime girl? [怪笑] eh? [怪笑]

BIG BRAIN RIGHT?!

Welcome to Custom Cast! Forget Blender 3D, Maya, or whatever 3D rigging software you can use on your PC! Now you can be a cute anime girl with just your phone! Ain't that neat?!

Explore vast amounts of customizations, presets and adjustment to be the cutest, to be the most beautiful, to be the best waifu that can trap every weebs' heart!
Did I already said it's just on your phone?! You got that right! Just your phone! What are you waiting for! Download now! [開心]

In all seriousness, Custom Cast is a nice app for designing your custom anime cute girls. Be it for yourself or for flexing to your other weeb friends.

I'm not sure if I just haven't explored this enough but you can't export your anime waifu as a 3D file so you can use them on your PC Vtubing streams.

Good app. Great way to waste a bit of your time. [厲害]

ISEKAI

4.5

Have you ever dreamed about going to a new world? One that can meet every fantasy you'll ever think of? Probably most of us do and that means you want to be on an isekai or to be " isekai'd ".

The ISEKAI app won't let you realize this dream of yours. Kind of a bummer isn't it? [怪笑] But hey! This app let's you talk or "interact" with popular characters on the isekai genre published by Kadokawa which kinda makes you feel closer being isekai'd? I don't know. Up to you to imagine that. [厲害]

Let's get this straight and fast since I'm more into game reviews.

The graphics? Looks good and hand drawn despite it being 3D. You call this cel shaded style and it's really good. I must say that Raphtalia and Megumin looks like their anime counterparts here.

Functions. Nothing much really. The app is not built to let you play with it. It's good for some entertainment for minutes and you'll probably get bored with it. But don't get me wrong, the app is designed to let you feel some interaction with your probably favorite characters.
Talk with them, tap them [厲害], set a timer, an alarm, make them count, dress them up, and probably will be more to come as long as you're willing to pay for the content! [開心]
IMAGINE NOT WILLING TO PAY FOR YOUR WAIFUS? [厲害]

Characters. The popular choices, Megumin and Raphtalia.
No qualms about them really as I've said on the graphics part, they look good.

Now for the negatives. At least let me have a choice on the subtitles. [大哭] I get it! Devs need pay for living and we all know that but I still kind of hope that subtitles are free.
Also the UI? I don't know, the UI feels really dated. Probably a redesign would look nice on this. Make the icons look sharper and cleaner.

And that's it! ISEKAI app. An app not for everyone but for the ones that wants a chance to interact with their favorite characters as long as they want to pay some of the extra interactions. [害羞]

ひなこい

4.3

Dating Sims... I used to play plenty of these when I was really small but it seems that this game is kind of different on what I've had before. I'm guessing that it is because the game is made from Japan and hence the difference in takes but I might also be wrong.

Anyway, since I can't read anything from this game, (I forgot what I've learned on my JP class already [大哭]) I will just based my rating on what does this game trying to achieve.

The game was made a dating sim but also an advertisement for the idol group presented on this game and objectively, it doesn't fail there. Why? Because for some reason I really find the girls on this game really cute. Some also really appeals more to me but don't get me wrong, they are really all cute looking.

As a dating sim, the game overall feels like a visual novel kinda like what you're gonna see on Bandori. Read the story and you're gonna get gems and stuff. Read these character event stuff and your also gonna get gems.
So many things to read yet I can't read them. [開心]

But Sei, it's for the Japanese audience. [發困]

Oh? Kid! You're awake now. [不滿]

Well, yes, it's for JP audience and I don't really mind if I can't read them. Let's just discuss the other stuff on the game, ok?
As I've said, the game is also an advertisement and to advertise the idol group, players are able to collect portraits of the members. Different kinds with different rarities which if you're a fan of the group, you might be really hooked or pay for the character portraits. How do you get these portraits? By doing gacha! [厲害] We should already know gachas by now and should not be discussed.

But Sei, if we're just collecting portraits wouldn't that be just boring?

Well, if you're not a fan, it probably would be. Plus some of it are locked behind a paywall so non-fans might not get interested for a long time. But you see, it gives people engagement on the game! You see these cute idols on different settings and poses are quite a delight and I would say that it really adds up to the imagination of whatever it is the players of the game will do. [厲害]

Ok, I kind of understand what you're pointing out Sei but is there anything you can do on this game besides story reading and doing gachas?

Oh yes! You see, the game is a dating sim and on dating sims, you somehow need to up the approval rating of the girls to you. It can be sometimes represented by heart with number level or number of hearts up to 5. On this game you get to level up the heart. And as you level it up you get to unlock more story stuff about love with the certain character that gets deeper as you unlock each of the story. Well, that is at least the impression that I'm getting from it.

How do you level them up Sei?

Well, aside from the character level itself that you get to up with some colored gems like on bandori, the heart level goes up when fighting.

They fight on this game?! [驚訝]

Haha! Kinda? [鬼臉] The game have this quest mode where it kinda feels like they have HP and super gauges that lets the members do certain things for effects just like Princess Connect but instead of seeing attacks and buffing action stuff, you will just get some cute reactions and portraits from the members. You will also have somekind of oreimo visual novel feel on the supers/effect stuff because you have to make choices on them before they do something and seems like your choices also do give different effects and reactions which really works on showing how cute the game is. Is the action lackluster? Yes, but it is not made to be flashy and you have to remember that it's made to be cute and it works well there.

So, what are your notes on this game Sei?

For me, the game is for people that likes visual novel and dating sims that can also tolerate gachas. It will also be better for people that are fans of this idol group. But on my playtime? I might not be able to enjoy the story but I sure do enjoy the cute parts. If only there are more on that quest mode aside from the girls' cute reaction and some portrait showing when they're are doing something.
All in all, it's a pass for me. [微笑]

Genshin Impact

4.6

Cause he's the
L to the I to the N to the K
Wears tights everyday
Don't give a damn what you say
Got bigger balls than even
Evel Knievel and he ain't
Gonna stop till the world
Is free of evil...

What the fudge Sei?! What is that? [驚訝]

Nothing nothing... Just some Legend of Zelda Rap lyrics from Smosh. [害羞]

What?! [驚訝]

Nothing. You don't know it. You're still young... where we at again today?

Genshin Impact.

I see... Genshin Impact.. Ok! 5/5 Because Paimon.
K. Bye! [開心]

Oi! Review this one properly too! Why are you so lazy these days?! [發火]

Alriiiiighhttt... I'm not lazy, I just kinda hate how editing on qooapp works. Anyway, off to Genshin Impact then. This kid and I just only reached AR15 on the game before we stopped playing the game and the reason is? IT FREAKING CONSUMES THE HELL OUT OF YOUR TIME PLAYING! [發怒]

Now, was that a bad thing? Nope. In fact, the game is so good to play that I might get addicted and drop the games I really play.

But would that make us unqualified to review the game Sei? [大哭]

Not quite kid, you see, we review games objectively as much as possible. We extract what is good and what is bad about it and not based on how unlucky we are on gachas. [厲害] Plus, we have experience with Mihoyo games. [開心]

As I've said, game will consume a lot of your time gaming. If you're into RPGs, good combat system, anime graphics,
and quite good storyline, Genshin Impact will surely appeal to you and as you progress in to the game, the more you will find yourself invested into it.

The elemental attacks that affects the environment, the effects of each elements with other elements, the graphics, the skills, the characters all of them are quite good even you are using the original team is quite good until you've done enough that you will find yourself bored of that team and from here, we will enter the Gacha system.
We always see the gacha system in every mobile game and it's really saturated now. But hey! It works on giving the game developers money! So They'll just keep on trying to produce it.

But what if I don't have money for gacha Sei? [憋屈]

No worries kid, Brother Wei is kind enough to give you events which gives you gems that you can use for gacha and stuff. You really don't need the gacha to survive on this game really but if you're set on not doing gacha at all, you will just have to do everything in an increased difficulty and It's not that bad... Don't believe me? There are youtube videos to prove that it's possible. Going back, the game is very rewarding and you can use that to get yourself some of that 5 star or 4 star characters to help you out. As long as the RNGesus give you what you want and if didn't? Blame Wei [厲害]

As for the story? I can say that if you give it a chance and read all of those cutscenes? It will have you hooked.
The dialogue and how the characters interact with each other is not just exciting at certain parts, but also funny and sweet to read. [賣萌]

Ehe. [開心]

Ehe te nandayo?! [no]

All in all, the game is really fun and will leave you wanting more to keep on playing. The resin part? Energy-based system? Yep, if you're not experienced at these kind of games, you'll really deplete these. Again, and also a warning for someone that might be read this, IT WILL CONSUME YOUR TIME PLAYING. Also, IT WILL REALLY GET YOU HOOKED.

Do I want this to be a full game without microtransactions? I guess it's ok. The game is really good for it to survive in a one time payment scheme.

Do I recommend playing this? Well, if you're not a busy bee like me, then yes. Play the hell out of this game despite it not being the best beginner friendly game but still heed with my warnings about the game. [厲害]

All of them are quite positive Sei, what are your negatives? [不滿]

Well, not much. Since I'm not bothered by gachas and energy-based system (Some might be which is quite subjective [厲害]) all I could say that could affect the gameplay is the optimization of the game on Android. The game can run on 60 FPS most of the time but it could be more stable. This is also for people with lower end phones to play it better. More players, more success and more fun! [開心]

So what is the verdict Sei?

I can say that Genshin Impact is a game that will leave you wanting more. It will be up to you whether to take it as positive or negative but it is a gacha mobile game that is designed to make players spend.
Despite the money-grubbing techniques presented on this game like lolis or waifus, [厲害] the game can still be played with no spending or at least very minimal spending at all.
Oh! I forgot! Husbandos. If you swing that way. [害羞]
Give it a try! Afterall, a game is only good if you try it.

Project SEKAI COLORFUL STAGE. Right. Another Bandori game.

Okay, bye. [為什麼]

[驚訝][驚訝][驚訝] Oi Sei! Review this properly! [發火]

Alright! Alright! Geez! [汗顏]

Bushiroad. CraftEgg. .... Bang Dream! Girls Band Party! [開心]

Kidding aside, the game is like the first waifu music game from CraftEgg. Same chibi click thingy, same interface style, same gacha to get waifu and get higher scores gameplay.

But Sei, if they're the same, why should we still review this? [大哭]

Well, apparently there are some key differences you can see on this game. Enter Hatsune Miku! [開心] Oh! And of course the other vocaloids that are not relevant if you happen to know only Miku. [厲害]

Did I say same interface style with Bandori? Yes! But the colors have this Hatsune Miku-esque flair into it. Which breathes on it like a fresh air and somehow makes it look a bit cleaner.

Aside from those everything is just like a regular waifu music gacha mobile game that I usually try from Japan.

With and exception of.... Wait for it... HUSBANDOS! Yes!!!![開心] You freaking read that right! Husbandos! And they're not just grouped with just all-male group, they're group on some females as well! This combination, for me, makes it unique. Also a good thing for those fujoshis out there seeking new husbandos to fawn over or create their fantasies of.

Was this a good game Sei?
- I can say yes!

Were the songs good?
- What good? They're awesome! [開心]

How about the gacha?
- As I've said, it seems the same gacha mobile game but this one feels more rewarding for some reason. Maybe you can Do more rolls/pulls on this game than Bandori.

Okay, last one. How is the game play?

- Good question, you see, the game just follows the formula of what seems to work and there is nothing wrong about that. If it's not broken, don't fix it right? Although, for me, There seems to be some subtle tweaks on this game that can be felt different from Bandori. I can tap the notes better and they can be seen better. Everything is good looking and appealing aside from it's performance issues.

Performance issues? I thought it's already good for you?[睡覺]

Right?! It looks appealing and good but it freaking have stuttering issues! [發火]
No MV? Stuttering and some FPS drops.
2D MV? Same.
3D MV? How about don't play this thing?! [發火]

Maybe it's just your phone Sei! [發怒]

*Sighs* You know kid, I bought this new Snapdragon 865 phone so I can stay on top of the games I play. This won't be the issue. I know Android development is quite hard due to devices compatibility but I didn't expect the game to be almost unplayable on with the 3D MV on.

But I'm still hopeful that this game will be fixed and I'm looking forward on playing this again once it's updated and fixed. Before the questions of have I tried checking for fixes? No. But I've tried several stuff like phone restarts and cache clearing. Plus, Genshin runs really fine on this device Why can't this?! [發火]

Anyway, forgetting about the stuttering? It's a very good music game that you might enjoy. Fresh songs, Miku, husbandos, waifus and very nice MVs (Despite me not being able to enjoy it [大哭]) . You name it! This game has it!.
Try! Maybe it supports your phone better than mine. [厲害]

You know what it feels like to be really isekai'd? No? Me neither but at least that's how this game will make you feel. You woke up, snow everywhere, and every step you take, there might be something or someone that will ambush you. Of course you can just beat the hell out of them if you want to. It's their fault anyway. [厲害]

Welcome to the world of Octopath Traveler!

The game is just like any other JRPG you've played if ever you're into those except that it's in 3D! [開心] Oh? It's 2D?!
What?! Both?! [驚訝] Oh yeah! It's both! [哇噻] This is why the game really looks awesome!

Explore the hand-drawn looking 3D-2D world, meet and talk with people (NPCs), Trade stuff with them, practice fighting with them for buffs, meet new people and add them in your team and...

Wait wait wait, hey Sei! you can add any people in your team?! [哇噻]

Sure do kid! But you need the power of the red gem stuff to call people and talk to them 1 by 1 everytime you do! [發火]

You mean this is a gacha? [可憐] And what do you mean by talking to them 1 by 1? [為什麼]

Yes! It's a free to play mobile game. What do you expect? Devs got to have money somehow. You know. [厲害]
Also, yes. You talk with every people you will get on the gacha. So if you pulled 10x, you will need to talk to each of them too! Considering you don't have them yet which is kind of time wasting for me. [發怒]

Anyway... The game is still story-driven which is a bummer for people that can't read the language but you can feel it. The darkness, the emotion of the VA, and how the pixel characters move and react! It's so good that you might really want to play more of this game if only your VPN won't expire! [大哭]

But Sei! There are free VPN apps from the Play Store!

Yes... but it's just also a test on how much progress you can do on 7 days. And based on my playthrough, the game is fairly easy to play but still challenging enough to make you fear of losing. But hey! I defeated a level 11 Giant with my lvl 2 Chibis! [開心]

So if you're looking for an RPG to play on your phone, take a whim on this game! You might like it that you would wish it's not gacha. [厲害]
