College Hijinks Ahead, February 22, 2014

As much as I enjoyed the first game in the series, this one is better. The author has kept a lot of what made the first game fun and improved on many of the things that needed improving. Unfortunately, he also introduced some new issues, notably a ridiculous number of typos, including one in a room name.

First, the things that are the same. The hero is still ridiculously talented in the erotic arts, still has a one-track mind, and is still surrounded by women who need favors done and are willing to repay in kind. The world still runs on porn logic.

However, there's now a plot goal outside of having sex. The situations are fairly stock fantasy, with a lot of loving nods to the movies that define the college romp genre. Picking a frat name right out of the gate was a nice touch and immediately told me what to expect.

The map is still large, but the areas are better defined and few are wasted. Descriptions of rooms and scenery are functional and do give a sense of the hero's personality, such as it is. The NPCs are just as varied and individual as in the first game, but more mature and assertive.

The puzzles always move the story forward but rely a bit too much on searching and revisiting old locations. No guess the verb problems, but I did find run into what seems like an oversight more than a bug; nobody will answer the door at the Dean's house unless you (Spoiler - click to show)get rid of all your twenties first.

This is definitely a puzzle game; the puzzles aren't a tacked on afterthought but a crucial part of the game. Fortunately, the time spent solving most puzzles (the ones that don't directly involve sex) provides a needed down time in between more intense scenes.

All in all, one of the better adult games I've played, and worthwhile as IF, too.
