Author: Bomee, Mayuiki and Kyo Availability: Free, Online/Browser Format: Dating Sim Genre: Supernatural Rating: PG My Scores: (Writing: 2.5, Art: 5, Gameplay: 2.5) out of 5 Found at OR In Kaleidoscope Dating Sim 2, a gender-flipped sequel to Kaleidoscope Dating Sim, you are Soffie.
Review: Writing: I wasn't too sure what score to give this at first.The plot itself is a bit baroque, but whether this is a good thing or a bad thing may simply be a matter of taste.There are a lot of different elements cobbled together, both in the intro and, to a lesser extent, in the love-interests' story-lines. Unlike Winter Dance Sim Date, though, these odd bits aren't merely blurted and forgotten; they get brought up again in dialogue, and overall, it's hard to point out anything as completely irrelevant.If anything, I'd say this game tries to cram a novel's worth of plot and characterization into something the size of a short story, and the result is that bits are sticking out every which way.Of course, this style may have as many fans as it does detractors, and I've graded according to my own personal taste. There's something very life-like about the characters. All the mini-games have been neatly swept into a corner so I don't have to bother with them." Well, that is not true.The expressions are subtle and nuanced, and there's a bit of animation that breathes further life into them with blinking and facial twitches. Unlike many dating sims with currency involved, there is no job mechanism in Kaleidoscope 2.
Also, the backgrounds are nice, and the music is gentle and ambient. The closest you can get is picking mushrooms in the forest to sell, but you are only allowed to do so once per day.
This means that you will have to play the mini-games.
On the one hand, I certainly can't accuse the writing of being too sparse on details.
Also, the characters are sufficiently different from each other in terms of personalities and "voice", which is important in a dating sim.
You'd be able to tell Gabe from Cero even if you couldn't see who was talking.
(Fun fact: Cero, winnable here, is also the protagonist of the prequel to this game).
