Mokoko, an arcade puzzle game developed and published by NAISU. Released May 19, 2020. Download on Nutaku.net for $4.00 For PC Windows. Limited voice acting. Uncensored genitals.

Get ready to rescue damsels in distress from horrible monsters invading the planet! Your only reward is pussy, and that’s all you need for motivation. Mokoko draws inspiration from popular late 80s arcade games such as Volfied, Qix and Gals Panic.

STORY

The game advertises a ‘rich’ story, but then slips on a banana peel and does the opposite. It was supposed to be about an alien invasion, but the girls in Mokoko appear to be plagued by insects in their homes. There is a bit of exposition about the legend of Mokoko and some stuff. However, the insects that you deal with are sentient, and we don’t get to know why or how.

For some reason, there isn’t any actual plot. Each insect and girl has some kind of connection. Character screens give you some reading about the personality of each girl and their respective insects. Unfortunately, the relationships are shoddy and bland. This is the only source of information you get, with the rest being overall messy writing. I was thoroughly confused about what was going on, mostly kept playing to unlock more girls for the screenshots of this review.

SOUND EFFECTS AND VOICE ACTING (SFX)

Each girl and monster have a limited number of lines they repeat endlessly. Some line delivery makes no sense and pulls you out of what little immersion there was. It continues with bland vocal performances lead by a generic script of nonsense. The monster voices all sound like the same person – someone with limited acting experience. This is one of the rare cases where a dubbed game is annoying to listen to.

Sound effects are a generic package lifted from some obscure library on the internet. The most frequently heard sounds are energy blasts, health warnings, victory jingles, and loss notices.

MUSIC

Mokoko doesn’t impress with its music. You have to follow so many moving parts, it’s difficult to focus on the music. A series of tribal wind instruments and thematic drums that give these mediocre tracks an African feel.

There is a wide variety of tunes. However, they don’t always fit the thematic or the pace. Music does not create a sense of urgency and only exists to drown out the repetitive lines and generic sound effects.

GAMEPLAY

Mokoko is a puzzle game. You move an avatar along the edge line of the screen. You draw lines by holding in the space bar to block off portions of the battlefield while evading enemies. You have five lives that you lose upon contact with bugs or their blasts. Every portion of the battlefield that you successfully block off becomes destroyed. You clear the level by destroying at least 70% of it, spanning 24 levels total.

The artwork is hidden behind it all, which you uncover as you clear levels, for a total of 8 girls with 3 levels each. Given there aren’t many, you also clear levels for undressing the girls. The actual game play is quite difficult. Especially compared to the rewards. I played most of it on Easy Mode and still died several times. Each level has a unique layout with different obstacles making it harder to clear.

GRAPHICS

The art for Mokoko is average at best. Backgrounds are basic with minimal effort put into most of them. The 8 girls are featured in lewd positions after a certain amount of clothing is removed.

The girls are cute with plump bodies and adorable faces. Their looks don’t match their informed ages. The artwork has a soft style that makes everything look extra cute. All the girls have the same face with only hair, eye color, name and attire to distinguish them. The outfits have problems. Sometimes mouths and eyes will move. It feels like the art was made in less time it takes to unlock it.

HENTAI

The lewd content is lackluster. The only reward after struggling through 24 levels is cute artwork of scantily clad girls who smile at the camera. You strip them down and watch their bodies, that’s it.

The babes are cute but lack soul and entertainment value to compensate the player for spending so much of their time in the pursuit. Mokoko has no descriptive dialogue, or voice-overs. The artwork is not enough to satisfy even tourist hentai gamers.

CONCLUDING WORDS

Mokoko is a simple and fun arcade experience for a low asking price. The aesthetics are lacking, the hentai content is meh, but the gameplay is challenging enough to keep you entertained. It’s a short and sweet experience from an indie studio, that who knows, could spawn a whole franchise if enough people buy it. This industry is kind of crazy that way.

Not sure I recommend this. It’s okay, I guess? Download Mokoko now!
