Since Sidescrolling Adventure is not one of my favorite genres, I was very sceptical at first whether I would actually play the game until the end. But the story about detective Ito and her partner's disappearance is very captivating and constantly...
motivating to keep playing. The 11 possible ends, the different decision possibilities and their effects on the mental health of the protagonist are largely sophisticated and give the player the feeling that they actually have an influence on the course of the story. The graphics and the musical background are well done and match the individual locations and plot lines of the story. There are only a few bugs and the menu that takes getting used to.
Conclusion: A sidescroller with a nice, dark story, an anime style graphic that is worth playing again
