Helix Waltz | English Review(s)
The intel we have to gather to exchange for items and info of each NPC have different ranges as well, and whenever a character comes to ask me for some intels he/she needs, I never get them until the time runs out, which is absolutely funny to me. But you can always memorise what info you need and meet a certain NPC (Hosta) at the Slum to buy them with money or diamond too :3
Game are very generous, even with hearts you can roll 6* clothes too, you can also roll 1 heart gacha a day and 1 diamond gacha for each 2 days.
The UI is cute, the clothes are absolutely adorable and the characters' interactions are well written too. I'm rooting for a love affair of 2 NPCs this time haha.
Gonna stick with it for a while and see how the story turns out to be. Oh and the music, gosh I love those so much, gonna make them my ringtone soon!
The prize, is surprisingly, nice. Simple, and not prized based on rank but the vote you got plus your vote on others' style.
And very well keep the favoritism in a secrecy. As well as battling with players, out of nowhere and is not part of Illusion Contest so that you can get Spark or whatever to enchant. This is what PvP for you.
As for the clothes, is legit generous. You can have 600 hearts in less than 1 week you know? I get this heart in just 3-4 days and get *3-*4, even sweet ol' *6 clothes.
Moreover, there's 35 non playable characters available, therefore you have 35 Imperial Egg (each had 10 random clothes, but will be all new mostly). Tada, you may as well have 350 new clothes per *4 Favor from NPCs. And is legit easy as you memorise their fav topic and choices.
Yes its another dress up game and yes the demographic is still young female, but the quality, the quality is so very extremely good it outbeats all those dress up game out there!
Gosh where do I even start.
Ok first the storyline is very mature and a bit dark i might say. It definitely isnt the kind of storyline that treats players like 5 yrs old kids.
Second the BGM omg the BGM, sound director -sama, please receive a most respectful bow from this humble fan of yours! It fits the game so well and the BGM itself is so addictive and is actually good!
Finally in game features. I have to say I really like the "you can flirt with whoever you want" feature, it gives the player a sense of awareness, and that these NPCs are different individuals that you can invest your feelings into and receive sth back.
Wow i have much more to say but the word limit is up sob sob. Well anyways, thanks devs for bringing such a lovely game to us.
The attires are so cute and there's a plethora of them! The soundtrack matches the theme which I find myself immersed into the scenes of the story.
And, the tutorials are well done and I must say that the characters are very interesting-- I also love how reflective Magda is and I really look forward to her growth through the story!
The theme of the gameplay is to prepare your appearance to go to parties for nobility. A big piece of advice is to always wear an attire with the best Chic points on the party's theme so you could easily win the fashion battles.
The choice-based part of the game is in the main story, and is also present as a minigame during the parties. You try to win the favor of a certain character in order to unlock a feature where Magda gets to pry information out of the others in order to raise the Ellenstein Household back to the Senate.
Overall, this is a well-thought fashion-game, and I definitely enjoyed this.
+ Beautiful art (there are about 150 clothing sets; each one includes more than 10 items and you can freely mix them)
+ Loveable characters (there are 55 NPCs who can be friends or foes depending on your choice)
+ Unique story (even NPCs have their own stories. If you have good relationship with them, they will reveal their true nature and spicy secrets to you )
+ Addictive gameplay (I spend one whole day and a sleepless night on my first time playing this game)
+ Music really suits the theme
+ Game is generous with giving high-star (3* - 6*) items (you can use coins/ gems/ hearts gained from NPCs and real friends to buy or exchange high quality items frequently)
The clothing sets you can collect range from simple to fancy, and even some plain items can get higher scores in beauty contests by enchanting them. It's also easier to obtain items from previous events of Material Egg set, as the designs can appear in shops, allowing you to craft them.
You can even get sets by maxing out character's favour and doing their quests. The prestige sets are all stunning and the first four are based on the four big families in the setting.
The dancing minigame can be a bit of a pain, but there's an option to skip it if you don't want to do it.
There are also daily quests and requests that give awards. Money can be gained through either going ro balls or working at the Maid's Lodge. After a certain point, you can just skip balls with Blitz Tickets for the rewards.
There are also the Illusion Contest and the Championship.
The Illusion Contest is all about getting votes from other players for styling an outfit with randomly-assigned items.
The Championship is more like the in-game PVP beauty contests, except there is a central theme.
All in all, I do recommend playing the game.
You will also be spoilt with the array of outfits and accessories that this game has to offer. Not only that, you can also gain partners to join you in balls. Plus the music is superbly good.
As a player who has been playing this game from the beginning, the dev team has been helpful in all cases and very community-oriented.
You can do a lot of things like working as a maid to win coins and doing the missions to get more items.
My favorite thing is obviously the fact that you have to get close to a lot of characters by choosing the right option ...and is really hard, I'm not sure why but that makes me really fire up.
The music is really nice, if I'm not wrong the main theme is in french and it goes very well with the game.
For now I am curious to get to know more about the story. <(￣▽￣)>
