    "Personally this seems to be a game for someone who was not popular in highschool and now he can get the girl. It's like a story and you pick a girl you want and date. And in the end you marry the girl. I think your time can be better spent in the real world!"

    "I have been looking for an app to ease my boredom during breaktimes, I came across this app. Honestly, visually speaking, I wasn't impressed by the graphics for I have seen better and more crisp visuals out there. However, the romance, which is the main theme of the storyline, is very very okay. I recommend this to people who want to feel in love again just by playing a game. It felt like a romantic movie but you get to control your character :D"

    "One of the worst dating sims ever. I mean, after kissing kylie what's next? The game freezes whenever I wanna take it to the next level. I hope devs fix it. SOmebody agrees with me pls???"

WHAT'S THE MEANING?

Dating sims, also known as romance simulation games, are video games with an aim to get into a romantic relationship with a character from the game. The basic gameplay of a dating sim is to take control of a character played in the first person to woo someone. But, dating simulators can be intense and serious depending on what you want. There are some dating sims with sexual content, while others are more of a chaste romance. 

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know Konami’s Tokimeki Memorial popularized the dating sim game genre? Sure, it was not the first game of its kind. They even say there is a possibility that Tokimeki might have modeled itself after No Ri Ko. Whatever the case, Tokimeki Memorial became the standard of the future of dating sims. Moreover, it is also one of the pioneer of good otome games. In fact because of Tokimeki, dating sims have relatable settings and events over fantastic scenarios. The gameplay now also consists of explicit choices, from where to go or what to say based on a set of given options. Those choices determine which character becomes linked with your character romantically. And thus, the narrative follows the player's prior choices and actions. But the most important influence of Tokimeki was how its visuals changed the art in visual novels. This is after Konami started using backgrounds to represent generic locations. The characters do not inhabit those spaces, but they stand against a backdrop. Moreover, the best dating sims and dating sim apps most often take the form of visual novels, interactive text adventures with images and animations.

    "Yeah, I gotta agree this is not the best dating sim. Not even close. Well, not that I hate it so much. I have nothing against it because the theme is romantic and sometimes provocative, I would commend that. However, there are lot of bugs that are not fixed yet. Commands such as "go to the bathroom" or "take a shower" make the app freeze sometimes. "

    "I could see myself in Nicole. Well, except for the fact that I actually didn't get to my dream university--because this Nicole did!! Anyway, like the lead, I have also been into solving mysteries that's why I bought a lot of mystery book back in college. The graphics are not realistic but I admit they are very effective in visual telling. Upon playing, I realized that I am into Darren. He is one of the men you get to date when you play t his game. He's a social media enthusiast. Overall, this is very great game especially to young women in their 20s!"

    "Oh Lord, I though we lived in the modern age where women were liberated and didn't live for romance and men saving them from there hopeless lives. Thankfully, you have to be at least 17 years old to buy the App. Which is pretty weird given that it's targeted towards "girls." But hey, if it gives them another excuse to actually read, I guess it gets a few bonus points for that."

    "I will recommend this app to all people who are looking for an extraordinary type of dating sim app. I love it because it veers away from the traditional sim game that just focuses on finding a date per se. This one has some good plot. Actually, there are 3 major plots that you need to complete to progress. Don't worry, there are more than 50 characters you can interact within the game. I love the visual storytelling. :D"

    "For a dating sim this is a good app but there's simply not as many people to date as I would like there to be. At least the dates are top notch and they add new storylines for the current characters but if they would ad more people, this would be one of the best."
