Rating comments: Game's too short. It desperately tries to prolong screen time, and these efforts are felt by reader. It has nice comedy moments and quite worthy protagonist, but heroines and the story aren't inspiring.
Protagonist: Blitz looks a lot like Rance visually, and he's quite a pervert even though his actions are actually usually pretty innocent. He cites wisdom of his father all the time, and he's the only bright spot in this game.
Characters: There are three heroines in this game - supposedly main heroine priest daughter Muse, kidnapper chieftain Klenadia and actually the main baddie of the game - sorceress Somua. There's no voicing, no story depth and no time to even start any heroine development. They remain just actors in this very short unenthusiastic story.
Story: Story can be described in just one sentence. Blitz saves priest niece Muse from kidnappers, accompanies her to the city and then opposes new kidnappers of Muse. That's it - can such story really be carcass of a game? It certainly can, but don't expect that game to be good.
Humor: I mentioned nice conversations with heroines, but humor mostly exists only in the first third of the game, and it's quite crude humor about nudity. Second third is very boring with heroes just travelling in the woods. Then travelling the new morning. And same goes for many days. The last third is supposed to be serious drama, but it's impossible to take this game seriously at this point.
Overall comments: Quite naive attempt to produce a fast bright erotic fantasy story and get something from this new pie. But it looks like it did not go well, so they just produced nukige from then on. Bye-bye, Luchs.
