Shining Song Starnova reviews and comments

So Friends. Butter at the Fish. And in German. I master it quite well. Not perfect, but Except for the Plusquamperfect, that's already clear. So Starnova is an Erosion at Heart. That just has to be clear to you. You can also play this without An Adult Patch, but let's face it – that's just like Coffee without Caffeine Or Sweet Potato fries. Goes too, but isn't so horny. The Stories also work ohneAdult Patch. And they are good. Really good. Not at the Level of Visual Novel genre Kings, but already Top Notch in the Erosion Area. Classic there is a Main Story, which after about 40% of the Game is divided into six at first and after Completing this into a seventh Strand. And that's where you can already see qualitative Differences. The Aki, Mariya and Sasami Storylines are simply more developed than the other four. You can clearly see That, but it's not bad. And the others are not bad because of that, they are still good. But the Aki Storyline in particular is hard to reach. Imo by Far the strongest. What else. Of course. This is a Conquest. So what matters? Artstyle. And Artstyle is a Matter Of taste. Personally, I really like the Style. Since the Sunrider Games, I've been a Fan of The Look of Love in Space Games. They can do that. Not quite as crass "gloomy" as the Nekopara Games, rather clean and slightly more minimalist. I Stand on it. Don't Achieve the Level of a Tropical Liquor, but I like it. Well – a Matter of Taste. Don't Like the Style, then leave your Fingers off the Game. Gameplay: Visual Novel. No Strategy part like Sunrider, no Time Management System like Sunrider Academy. Pure Reading. Each of the seven Stoys has a Bad Ending, brought about by a Decision. In six Cases, it is completely irrelevant and achieved extremely quickly after Selection. So free Choices are not actually included. Just to Appearances. As with Telltale content, for example. Sound: So. There are a Lot of BGMs that you already know from previous Love in Space Games and that can be found on the Net for free. Don't Bother, are okay. Then there are some Original Songs specifically for playing with Vocals. These are okaye Pop Songs, but not supreme. Don't Get left up so hanging in the Ear – actually weird, as it's all about Idols. Nevertheless, the Intro Song from Sunrider, for example, is much more catchier. Interesting: The right BMGs specially made for the Game (at least they were not known to me) have the Villains. I would have expected that more with the Novas. But good. To the Perimeter: I'm at 50 Hours of Play. You like to deduct 5 To 7 hours of idletime. Definitely enough Fabric to Read. Luckily with Autoread,
