Why Game Consoles Are Dead And You Are The Casualty

Review: HuniePop (The Adult Match Three RPG)



Ages ago there was a game on 16-bit computers called Bar Games. It featured random games you might find er, in a bar setting. One of the games was called “The Pickup Artist”. In this game you had to approach a woman and have an on-screen dialogue. Say the wrong thing and she told you to get lost. Say the right thing and the date continued. It was a fun, innuendo-laced PG-13 game at best; but I have very fond memories of it.

Speeding ahead a couple of decades and we have a new genre of game sprout up; first with the madness of Bejewelled and then the RPGish Puzzle Quest series – where matching three items on the screen made them disappear and more would fall in to take their place. The addictive nature of match three games has created an empire of them; you pick the theme and chances are likely there is one to meet your needs.

Enter HuniePop … a hybrid match-three-meets-the-pickup-artist game. Only this time, the game is filled with cute, young Asian women with widely varying personalities and challenges to win over. Read more
