Where to even begin with this game? Whatever the "it" factor is, this game has it. Everything about it is amazing.

Let's start with the gameplay. It's a fun and addictive twist on mahjong/tile matching-type games which is simple and easy to learn. There are two main types of play: hunting and sex. Hunting is all about speed and gathering items for sex, whereas the sex implements a poker-esque combo system where you'll have to more carefully plan your moves ahead in order to get the best possible score. You'll develop Haro's sexual skills and stats as you play with her more and more, unlocking more scenes the better she gets at sex, and the direction in which you take her development is up to you.

Next is the story--who says porn can't have a good plot? The characters and world are interesting and imaginative. The writing really sets them apart from other stuff out there. It's like a sort of hands-off, almost minimalistic writing style that keeps you intrigued while still getting the message across. The pacing is spot on, giving you doses of plot between the main gameplay as well as short, light-hearted, humorous events serving as a transition between everything else. The writing for the sex scenes is, of course, also great. It's very arousing while also full of amusing references which are sure to elicit a smirk from you here and there.

And then there's the art. ponidog's style is very unconventional in a good way; the proportions are quite exaggerated, placing emphasis on all the right places as a result. It's almost like a mix between western and eastern art styles. It's not just the sex scenes, but the entire game is full of beautiful images and has a great aesthetic. And speaking of sex scenes, nearly all of them are animated.

The music is very atmospheric and catchy, and there's tons of replay value. You can easily put more time into this game than most retail games. Have no doubt, this is money well spent.
