Shall We Date?: Lost Island Lionel Route Impressions and Review – Spoiler Free

Basic Premise: The MC and her fellow researchers are trapped on an island during a zombie outbreak.

Positives

  • The MC is competent in her field and active in the storyline.
  • Lionel is consistent if not complex.
  • The zombies create a sense of tension.
  • The backgrounds are nicely detailed.

Negatives

  • The text and the visuals often contradict each other. The MC’s being repeatedly patted on the head by a character holding a gun in each hand never fails to amuse, but my personal favorite has to be “there’s not a single boat on the island” with a picture of three boats in the background.
  • The way the sprites hold the guns is wrong in so many ways that I can’t even start.
  • I knew who the villain was from the first chapter and could see the supposed twists far before the story’s characters.
  • The whole text desperately needs an editor; errors that even a basic spell-check would catch pepper the game.
  • The characters and dialog have no nuance or subtlety. None.
  • The bedroom scene is neither romantic nor sexy. I nearly started crying from laughing when the MC’s describing her own “soft breasts.” What, as opposed to the hard breasts you usually have?

Overall: An interesting premise that fails in execution. Of NTT Solmare’s titles, try Shall We Date?: Scarlet Fate instead. The MC is just as active, and the writing and editing are much better.

NTT Solmare’s Shall We Date?: Lost Island is available on iOS and Android.
