Kekko Kamen 2

Oshioki Densetsu no Kami
(Kami's Legendary Punishment(?))

A less typically shallow 'adult' click-adventure based on Go Nagai's masked female avenger.

That's not to say that this isn't your usual click-fest. There is plenty of one-handed mouse action in this game but there does also seem to be some signs of depth to the gameplay too, such as the need to find items and possible 'RPG' style experience levels.

In case your not too familiar with this sort of game (like me, honest!) the gameplay consists of clicking icons; Look, Talk, Move etc and choosing from a list of actions. The story, which seems to have something to do with a reporter investigating kinky goings on at a boarding school, is displayed as static images. Unlike some games of this genre there are some interactive sections hidden away but they merely consist of clicking certain parts of the screen...if you know what I mean!

The game is accompanied by several different music tracks that change as the story progresses, nothing that will stick in your mind though. As you might have gathered the game contains scenes of nudity and sex which, while quite mild for a game like this, are still a lot stronger than the Anime series it is based on and a lot more frequent. Although, strangely enough, Kekko Kamen herself actually wears more clothes than in the anime/manga!

Not a personal favourite of mine. It displays a minor amount of depth not normally associated with this variety of PC-98 game but it's still, click, click, click. Fans of the series should probably avoid this too as it lacks pretty much all the humour and just goes for the rude bits.
