Huniepop is a dating sim with a puzzle game twist. Players progress by earning the affection of girls with games and gifts in this mature title.
Dating sims, often described as visual novels, are a unique genre of game where players interact with characters to drive a story and gain items. Due to adult themes and partial nudity, these style of games are intended for mature audiences only. Huniepop offers a twist on this popular formula by adding a Match 4 style mini-game which progresses in difficulty. While this mini-game is compelling and has an engaging difficulty spike, the main bulk of the game is interacting with the girl characters and unlocking various outfits. Full voice acting is a nice touch for such a title alongside an unusually high level of content. Huniepop is a stand out title in the niche genre of dating sims.
Only for the fans
Despite an attempt to appeal to a female audience with a separate mode, this is a game which is mainly dedicated towards an adult male fan base. For the style of game, Huniepop does an impressive job in new innovations and breadth of gameplay. Although the vast majority of gamers will have no interest in the game, some will find lots to enjoy.
