HuniePop is a strange mix of a dating simulator, a Match3 game, and an erotic (to an indecent extent) visual novel. This game, quite an adult one, exists in different versions: on Steam, you can download HuniePop in a decent edition, and the HumbleBundle version is much harder.
Girls! Girls! Girls!
Assuming you’re not a moralist (otherwise, what’cha doin’ here?) and enjoy beautiful girls drawn in a manga-like manner, chances are you will love it. Like in harem anime series, you enjoy the choice of cuties that don’t try to hide their goodies, so there are bedroom scenes, their explicitness depending on the game version. It’s quite plain (though colorful), and looks rather like reading a magazine (mangazine) than watching videos. On the other hand, the game is small.
The idea of the game is in combining dating simulation and Match-3. There are girls who your character (it can be male or female) can conquer. Each girl has her own preferences in the way she wants to be treated or the gifts she likes to receive. As for the former, there are dialogs you can enter to start the conversation or ask her out. The latter can be received as prizes for mastering the Match3 part of it.
As your Casanova persuades the girl to go with him (or her), the fairy named Kyu has some advice to give, and you better follow it. Knowing the girls better than they expect lets you take them by surprise and enchant in the right manner. But everything in this game takes some effort. Even the Match3 part of the game is well more sophisticated than others because you have to plan your ways with girls and thus build your strategy for more than one level.
HuniePop also lets you customize the appearance of the girls, so you can make them as different as can be, or make them resemble your real acquaintances (be careful with this). They may want new items you can unlock for them. What you cannot do, though, is broadcast your gameplay on Twitch: the game is banned there.
A Little Sexy Thing
The game is so far only available for Windows, Linux, and OS X. Console or mobile versions are not even planned. It’s not, frankly speaking, the game to play in public. Its small size lets you install HuniePop even on old devices, and it won’t take much space or performance. On the other hand, it’s so replayable that you can spend many hours playing HuniePop alone (in all the meanings).
When You’re Motivated to Win
HuniePop does have something sweet at the end of each level. More than that: as you conquer one girl’s heart (and the rest of her), the others start playing hard to get, demanding more gifts and tricks. But that’s the fun, right?
