1. You can modify controls after dying to Lilly once.
2. You can press down+jump to slide
3. You can replay the game to find something more challenging

Katawa Shoujo is a bittersweet romance visual novel where the reader roleplays as Hisao Necktie: a highschooler who has become afflicted with a heart condition that forces him to enroll at Yamaku, a school designed for physically disabled students. Hisao eventually copes with his new condition and regains a new outlook in life with the help of one of the five possible romantic interest; all crippled in some way or form.

Katawa Shoujo: Symphony of the Feminists is something completely different.

Did I mention you guys gave awesome reviews? The praises were great but the criticisms were even better, it lets me know exactly what players liked and hated. All other reviews I've read elsewhere are one line spams that are shit, but this? this is pure gold. Thanks for putting time into this.


Whats the song that plays in the background before you fight Lillycula?

ShadowWhoWalks responds:

It's Kenshiro's theme in the PS3 game FIST OF THE NORTH STAR
the track is called KENSHIRO NO THEME

Damn took me like 20 tries to beat akira. Really great job here

I must say...The actualy Katawa Shoujo is MUCH better than this >_< But I like it...How ever im still not done with Katawa Shoujo. Iv still got the armless girl left ,and the burned girl...I cant get far enough in their storyline without having the crazy dude kill me D:<

http://katawa-shoujo.com/ <--thats wher you go to download it. Hope you all like the game >:D I know I did

well i beat both of them the second one is not unfair or cheap so i dont know what do you mean but it was glitchy like once he or she (never saw o readthe anime or manga)beated me it will throw one of its ataccks and when i rspawned i got hit by that shit thats fucked upxD adn once i was killed by enterin in contact with the 2nd boss and it just made the sound efect and i got stuck until the boss killed me again and some times if i loose he attemtps to jump but it just stays ther standing in one fut thats all overall good it would have been better if i actually readed or watched the manga /anime yet it was short so 4 points 3 stars

This is rather enjoyable if you are into the boss battle only types of games.

I believe your controls were fine and the main boss was rather easy (after I died once and learnt how to dodge her moves) but you did fail to mention what "C" actually did (You can throw items). I thought it was to punch the enemy and I was way off. I found the rubber band/boomerang to be more useful than the molotov (collect them by hitting the candles on the wall).

The sliding only really helps when you fight the second boss (shh it's a secret) to dodge his laser attack and dive under him when he jumps. I found the second boss much more entertaining and a bit more frustrating (I died 20+ times) but after learning to hit his missiles, run away from his triple bomb attack, jump over his sword dash, slide and hit when he does his laser (timing is precise), jump away from him when he teleports and throwing my boomerang things I finally killed him. Then I find out you haven't actually played Castlevania so my first impression was slightly put off.

I'm giving 4.5 stars (0.5 lost because of a lack of explanation)
Good game and would like to see a full version or just some more random boss battles.
