In the West, the term is generally used to cover (maiden) games cover any game aimed at a female audience that is not a Boys Love game; the majority are Visual Novels with romantic elements.Many are made by departments or subsidiaries of bishoujo game companies; for example, Games which feature female-female romance.(Not the most common combination.) In Huniepop, the player completes different puzzles and goes through different missions to successfully complete dates with female characters.The puzzle gameplay is simple match-three, and you have to pass a certain number of points in a certain number of turns to win.The stories behind each character are compelling, and it manages to avoid the common visual novel pitfall of being drawn out or dull.Like Huniepop, Hatoful Boyfriend is on the shorter side, which is nice in a genre where some games can last as long as 50 hours.Hatoful Boyfriend is basically a parody of the anime visual novel genre, and if you enjoyed some of the weirder humor in Huniepop, you’ll probably really like this one.Even with its tongue-in-cheek premise, this game is surprisingly well-written.
(I’m not sure what you would expect from a game about pigeons.) Even though Hatoful Boyfriend isn’t really all that similar to Huniepop, I think that fans of the puzzle game would probably enjoy it, too. Like Hatoful Boyfriend, Shira Oka takes place in a high school. You control how he spends his time, who he becomes friends with, and who he falls in love with… But no matter what choices you make, get ready for a roleplaying experience unlike any other.Released in January of 2015, Huniepop is an adult puzzle dating-sim game.However, you might be happy to hear that all of the characters in this game are human.This game doesn’t do a whole lot that’s unique or different from other visual novel-style games.It takes place in a high school, you’re surrounded by a cast of archetypal characters, and there isn’t much gameplay to speak of.The twist of this game, however, is that your love interests are pigeons.Unlike the other genres on this page, the term "yuri" does not imply a particular target audience; games aimed at a male audience and games aimed at a female audience are both included under the "yuri" label.Ever wonder how things might be different, if you could go back in time and re-live your past? The main character of Shira Oka: Second Chances is given that chance to find out. Will he get his act together, and become the person he always wanted to be?
