STORY

Sphilia is on a quest to find and destroy the Demon Lord! She conjures you into this realm, you will be her familiar! Together, the two of you must battle the demons known as the elite four, and save the world!

The writing in this game is spectacular. The dialogue is funny, the lore is interesting, and the characters all feel alive! Early on you can talk to people and learn that the desert village to the south needs water. If you buy water in the north, you can sell it for double the price down south, easy profit! Things like this make the world feel realistic and engaging to be in.

There are tons of side quests and optional encounters. Corrupting Sphilia into a whore will unlock even more events and scenes. It is possible to sell Sphilia into sex slavery and begin a cuckold playthrough. This is easily avoided, but if you choose to, you can watch her and the Elite Four demon girls fall for another man instead of you! Optional NTR content is always appreciated!

This game is close to perfect in everything except the ending. Multiple fourth wall breaks are spread throughout the game, so I always suspected the endings would suck. Sadly, I was right. Without spoilers, I will tell you that the endings were not satisfying.

GAMEPLAY

Sphilia’s Familiar was created with RPG Maker VXAce, the most common version of the engine. Use the arrow keys to move. Press Z and X to interact with the world. Press CTRL to skip dialogue. Hold the Enter key to speed up battle animations.

The game cycle is simple. Defeat enemies to earn money which you spend in town in exchange for items. As you grow stronger, you’ll be able to explore more of the world around you.

This game is the essence of a fantastic RPG Maker title. There’s level grinding, there’s stealth mechanics, dungeon puzzles, trade routes, and many other things that create an exciting and enjoyable RPG experience. Instead of random encounters, enemies are icons that you can avoid or pursue at your leisure. Weak enemies can be auto-defeated without battle, allowing for easy and fun grinding.

Though the experience is linear, the player does have some control over the narrative by the choices they make. When you need to help a hobo, will you give him some food or let him fuck your girlfriend? And when you need money will you become a merchant trader, or send your girl to work at the brothel? These choices and many more make for an exciting and potentially erotic experience, if you so choose.

Sphilia has three basic sex stats. Her “Babe” level represents her self worth and devotion to her quest. Her “Slave” level shows her devotion to you as a potential sex slave. Her “Slut” level shows how much she loves having sex with other men. Keep her “Babe” level the highest, or she will quit her journey and care only about sex. These stats can be decreased at a church. Your stats decide which ending you get.

Completing the game unlocks all scenes as well as “debug mode”, which gives you infinite levels and money. After five hours of adventuring, this is a great reward! My only complaint is that I wish it was longer!

GRAPHICS

The art is Japanese anime style. From sitting sex positions to numerous gangbang positions, this artist handles it all with consistent character proportions and incredibly erotic visuals.

There are 44 base CGs with over 350 alternate images to fill the 70+ erotic scenes. From facial expressions to clothing variations, many scenes have a level of visual variety that make them exciting even when a CG occasionally repeats. For example, scenes with demon form Sphilia are simply a color palette swap.

Significant attention is given to in-game sprites. There is a unique sprite for all main characters, creating instantly recognizable designs. Sphilia’s sprite also changes depending on the clothing she wears.

The world is enormous. Most memorable were the holy city of Asgard and the trading hub of Laoda. There’s a volcanic area, an ice zone, and many others! The sheer variety and expansiveness of the world is incredible! Some buildings like the nobleman’s mansion have three floors, giving you even more area to explore!

While most of the game relies on still images, there is an animation or two. The animated handjob scene was totally unexpected and very erotic. To watch Sphilia lick and stroke in such a realistic fashion, I couldn’t help but cum in my pants!

VOICE ACTING AND SOUND EFFECTS (SFX)

Sphilia’s Familiar has no voice acting.

The sound effects are stock assets and licensed clips that create a diverse array of assets used perfectly in every scene. Most important among them are the sounds used for sex scenes! The thrusting of a cock sounds quiet but realistic, like a pussy is actually being penetrated. Similarly, the ejaculation sound effect is hot without being too loud. Rather than a liquid sound, it creates imagery in your head of a pussy being filled with cum. Its fitting without going overboard, setting this game apart as a gem among hentai games.

MUSIC

There are 56 songs on the soundtrack, most of which are stock shit or licensed tracks.

Every location has a matching background track! The church has a choir, the desert has sistras and flutes. The grasslands have drums and horns, like you’d expect from a medieval fantasy adventure. Every track has unique instruments and fits the tone of the dialogue and setting. My only complaint is the lack of totally unique tracks.

HENTAI

Sphilia’s Familiar has over 70 erotic scenes in total. Many of these scenes are outercourse that occurs in battle to excite or distract Siphilia. There are 44 base CGs with over 350 variation images, not including pose art and other assets.

Will Sphilia be your devoted waifu, a free use whore, or a cheating slut? It all depends on your choices! Don’t worry, all cuckolding and netorare content is not easy to access, so there is little chance of you accidentally finding it.

You’re expected to spend time with Sphilia and have sex with her yourself. Over time she’ll become more devoted to you and offer you blowjobs and other services. If you want to live happily ever after with her, you’ll need to put in the work to please her! Alternatively, you can give her to others! When Sphilia is knocked down in battle you can choose to rescue her or encourage the monsters to have sex with her. I personally loved to attack her with friendly fire, only to watch as goblins and demons filled her holy pussy with cum!

Outside of loaning out Sphilia to strangers or turning her into a prostitute, you can also fuck the demon girls of the elite four whenever you please! This game has something for everybody!

CONCLUDING WORDS

Sphilia’s Familiar is one of the best hentai games on the market today. Gorgeous visuals, fantastic music, and talented sound design are only the beginning. Multiple endings and varied gameplay make for a solid foundation for a fantastic RPG. The 70+ scenes of monster sex, corruption, and netorare content are icing on the cake. No matter what you like, this game has something for everybody!

I highly recommend this game to hentai fans everywhere. Download Sphilia’s Familiar. If you loved this game and want another fun RPG, check out our review for Vera’s Region Tour Diary.
