Mirror is a hentai game, there’s no denying that (As someone who has gotten all achievements, I can say so), so, expect sexual content, and for that matter, in Mirror there something for everyone. So, if you don’t know what you like in life, might as well go through the whole game, and maybe something catches your eye. Other than that, it’s a really solid "bejeweled-like" game. You have to match 3 gems, and they’ll do something: Potion gems will heal you, magic/attack gems will damage your opponent, rage gems will increase your damage by a %.
So, what makes Mirror different to other games? Well, it has some interesting gameplay features. I.e if you match 5 gems in a line, you’ll create a S Skill Gem, that will do something, like doing some heavy damage, increasing your rage, healing you for a whole bunch of HP. After every battle you’ll get a chance to use your hard-earned money to buy different things at the store, to change the way your gems work, or to get items with different functions. So, there’s a whole bunch of combinations you can use to defeat your opponents and be awarded with that thing that makes your friends not invite you to their parties anymore, ♥♥♥♥’em.
After defeating a girl 3 times you get to "play" with her, increasing either her Pain or Pleasure (For the sake of getting achievements you can brag about with girls later) and thus getting one of two endings depending on which stat was higher when you run out of options. If you’re looking for the achievements I recommend you use a guide. Some stories are cute, well, I liked them. Some other are very ♥♥♥♥ed up, like this one girl that gives birth to Cthulhu. Other are comedy, in a weird kind of sense.
DLC gets you another 3 girls to play with, some more achievements. I liked the DLC more than the base game, because the stories are better (I do actually read them lmao) and the drawings are more high-quality.
Oh, do get the adult-content patches from somewhere tho. If you’re gonna be playing a hentai game, at least do it properly. Besides, the "bunny" censor they added really sucks.
So, wrapping it up. You can get a really nice casual game, for a few pennies, fun for when you don’t actually want to play something else, or when you’re really lonely and your friends won’t invite you to hang out. ♥♥♥♥ you guys, why can’t you accept me as I am?
This Match-3 strategy game with visual novel, role-playing game (RPG) elements and adult content by KAGAMI WORKs and Paradise Project features 8 different short stories (An additional 4 with DLC) that are viewed through a magic mirror. Starting with the dark elf Daisy, a different monster or character will fight the female character to the ending of each story arc. The magic mirror will reveal more female characters after reaching any ending in each story arc.
The story revolves around these characters:
Daisy: A dark elf who steals from the rich to give to the poor.
Yoko: An archer and priestess of a shrine in Kyoto and defends the city from monsters.
Cai Yun: A Chinese zombie who lies sealed inside a cave and awaits the return of the next reincarnation of her former lover and fellow disciple.
Lin: An ice dragon who serves a family of dragon knights as the family’s maid.
Unita: An orc she-warrior who has to hunt and slay a ferocious monster to be recognized as a warrior in her tribe.
Ketsuno Ana: A shogun girl from ancient Japan who somehow ended up at a modern Comincon (anime exhibition for otakus) and was mistaken for a cosplayer.
Ebony (Augie Terry): A queen of the Empire of Yellow Sand with grand ambitions to attain divinity at all costs.
Martha: A nun who works at a convent to distribute food to the needy and spread her god’s message.
Having spent 21 hours to reach all endings and obtain all achievements in this game, the storyline in this game can be controversial with multiple instances of BDSM, sexual assault and physical torture. Here is where I will mention a warning to all readers that if these controversial themes feel uncomfortable, look elsewhere, otherwise read on.
Plot and character backgrounds
Despite the controversial, dark and adult subject matter among the short stories in this game, I would still praise the scriptwriter for having the imagination to come up with eight different short stories that are different from the usual fare in a fantasy or romance story. They do this by combining both genres to tell 8 different stories of lost romance where 8 different characters or monsters might feel compelled to punish each girl towards a pain route and ending, or to excite the girl towards a pleasure route and ending after having to fight each girl across 3 different Match-3 stages. Although most of them have selfish and unsavoury motives on each girl, they also have an additional layer of complexity to describe and spur that motivation. A few of the characters are more wholesome yet they are forced due to circumstances to act in that way which also adds to the complexity of such a romance. This results in excellent storytelling which not many short stories have. After a few patch updates in November 2017 and September 2018, the game has fewer errors in the English version.
The artwork in this game is excellent by being attractive and colourful. The CGs use a large variety of different colours while each female character has animated sprites with different facial expressions and blinking eyes as the player does battle with them during the Match-3 and Tame segments of the game. The opening theme will show various CGs, background scenes, the cast of characters and character voice list with great animation throughout. The game also has great artwork in the game cover, Steam achievement icons, badges, emoticons and profile backgrounds. For those who prefer to uncensor the game and remove the flowers and SakuraGame rabbit in the Steam version of this game, a patch for this game is available by searching through the game’s discussion boards, some reviews or from certain Steam groups. The Cosplay DLC has an additional 219 photos of female cosplayers featuring all 12 girls from all short stories.
Voice acting and background music
Having voice acting by at least 5 different voice actresses for each female character in both the visual novel and Match-3 segment of this game serve to highlight, bring out and make this game more interesting. The background music (BGM) are great by matching the setting of the game and the character personality of each Match-3 opponent. My favourite soundtracks in this game are Lost Romance which begin by being pleasant and become stirring during the chorus. Although this BGM is played throughout in the game’s title screen, menu options and visual novel segments, it remains as one of my personal favourite soundtracks and I still listen to it despite playing the game for 18 hours. The oriental BGM for Yoko’s and Cai Yun’s stages, the stirring BGM for Daisy’s stages and the song with vocals Mirror that is in the opening theme and soundtrack DLC are also among my favourite soundtracks in this game.
The Match-3 gameplay is the main highlight of this game although if this game is a pure visual novel, I also wouldn’t mind paying 2-4 dollars for the 12 short stories alone. As a Match-3 strategy game where the player has to reduce the opponent’s health to zero, the game rewards players who build longer chains to deal more damage to an opponent, gain more health or rage or to create a super gem that can create a very large special effect depending on chosen skill and award more money at the end of the match. Each opponent has a different set of strengths and special abilities where some may need certain skills and items to counter their strengths and special moves. Each girl will also say something that is voiced in Japanese whenever they use a special ability, take damage and have their clothes torn or broken, win or lose at the end of the stage.
The achievements are more or less reasonable where although there are a few achievements that rely on luck, most of them can be obtained after a number of attempts. For those who are looking for a more challenging set of Match-3 stages, the game also has an unlockable challenge mode that is unlocked after reaching an ending with Martha as the final female character. This mode is entirely optional and is something like an ironman mode where the player will have to make decisions on which skills and items to equip, adjust skills accordingly, earn hearts after winning each round to purchase a replacement item for a spent item slot and the player is assigned a rank score at the end of the game. All these help to make the game fun and replayable without being too difficult or excessively grindy.
The Tame segment gameplay is the most controversial part of this game with heavy NSFW content which may make players uncomfortable where it involves choosing which body part or item to apply to certain parts on the captured girl’s body. I feel this game wouldn’t have raised as much controversy without this segment, which doesn’t add anything much to the game other than adult content and those who want to get all achievements have to refer to published community guides or experiment with different combinations in this adult segment.
Overall, this Match-3 strategy game with 8 different short stories is recommended only for adult players who like the Match-3 gameplay and fantasy visual novel segment that have compelling storyline, great artwork, voice acting and background music. If you don’t mind the heavy NSFW content and controversial content in this game, it is highly recommended to get this game with the soundtrack and Lost Shards DLC (Included in full review at link below).
I have voted this game for the Labor of Love award in 2018.
Mirror is a puzzle game, where you match 3 or more gems in a row, similar to Huniepop in a way. While I did mentioned in my review of Huniepop that it’s basically Bejeweled with sex, well guess what? This game is like Bejeweled, but with even more sex and sexual activities. In fact, its practically an eroge disguised as a puzzle game. Anyway, like Huniepop, this game has several types of gems, which will inflict damage or heals yourself, depending on the type of gems matched. If you match 4 similar gems, you will get a powered up version of the said gem, that can provide an additional ability, such as more damage, reduce enemy defense and damage, remove gems that were debuffed and so on. Matching 5 similar gems horizontally or vertically will net you a diamond gem, which can be exploded anytime to inflict a massive damage onto your opponent.
Speaking of opponents, basically you face a girl, where everytime you beat them, you will increase their affection meter. Usually before each encounter, there will be some dialogues and options, where depending on the options selected, you can either weaken or strengthen the girl, making your fight either easier or harder. Everytime you beat them, the match against them becomes harder until you beat them 4 times. At certain levels, they will unlock the use of certain special gems, which they didn’t use in the previous fight, though if you beat them 4 times already, they can use them anytime. Basically you need to beat them at least 3 times to get the…. special scenes, where you can do whatever you want onto them (and I do mean whatever, since they are at your mercy), followed by some CG on their endings or so. Usually most of the time, they will be lewded massively ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). Everytime you complete a match, you get come in game currency to add more skills to your arsenal, along with items that can help you in a match, or improving the effects of matching a certain type of gems. The costs of it increases, depending on the tier of the item, skills or stats effects.
This game is pretty much dirt cheap, similar to Hell Girls. Besides that, for a cheap game, I was surprised it has voiceovers during the cutscenes, fights and… happy hour moments as well. The gameplay is pretty interesting as some girl may me more resistant to a certain type of gem, while certain skills play a huge role in taking down a girl. Fanservice, well, as I did mentioned, this is a eroge game with puzzle elements, so of course there will be tons. Despite that, firstly this game is still in early access, thus only 3 girls are available to unlock. I find some scenes oddly not voiced for some reason, but its pretty minor, along with some typos. However, I kinda squim over a particular girl’s cutscenes, since it’s a bit guro-ish for me. Sometimes, the puzzle may get stuck, as you won’t get to do anything, as the blocks never fall down fully, forcing you to quit the battle and restart the fight again. Finally, if you are not a fan of censorship, you may not enjoy the censored cutscenes with a weird rabbit blocking them genitalias and flowers blocking the nipples, though there is an uncensored patch mod to remove them. Dark elf girl is the best, by the way. :p
Overall, if you enjoy an extreme amount of eroge elements, and puzzle elements, you may give this game a shot, if you have a buck or two to spare. Just be warned, do not play it with anyone around at any course, because its practically 50% eroge. You don’t want people to see you touching a naked woman nor hearing them sexual moans and groans, or just a naked woman outright.
5,4/10. Not so bad for a puzzle game, though since its in early access, many other girls are not available yet.
Editted: All the girls have been released. Have fun with them! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
