Magic Girl Fal, a hentai game developed by Magical Girl Club. Released July 11, 2021. Download on DLSite for $13.00. For Windows PC. No voice acting. Censored genitals. Available in English and Japanese.

One year ago, Fal was lured into a forest and cursed with an erotic disease. She must take in human semen at regular intervals, or lose her mind to lust. Now she must search for a way to lift this curse, while having tons of sexy fun along the way!

I will state, while the DLSite page rocks some high-scoring reviews, my experience was rocky. Please read the full review before deciding to purchase this.

STORY

You start out living with Undyne the water spirit. Next you must find Slyph the wind spirit, Ignis the flame spirit, and Nome the earth spirit. Only with the power of all four elements can you hope to defeat the dark magic. The plot is super simple.

There is one good ending and three bad endings for when you lose in battle. The good ending has some nice drama when you kill the reanimated corpse of your best friend’s mother. In the end, you defeat the necromancer and the world is at peace. My big complaint is the lack of post-game content. Fal is free from the lust curse, but we have no idea what happens next.

Only the beginning and ending of the game have good writing. The middle is completely neglected. Seriously, the first half hour of the game had me excited all for nothing. It really emphasized the despair of Fal’s curse as a parralel to addiction. Whether she likes it or not, she must continue to indulge impulsively against her own free will. This is one of the few games that portrays a lust curse as a negative thing, and I admire the author for doing so.

The biggest downside is that the lust-curse is only a plot point and not a game mechanic. You can actually play for weeks without it affecting you as long as you don’t progress the story. If the lust curse would actually interrupt your gameplay during serious times, it would really make the player feel the burden.

GAMEPLAY

Magic Girl Fal was made in RPG Maker VX Ace. Press Q to skip text. Press W to hide text boxes. There is no text log.

The gameplay is completely fucked. Although I purchased the official Dlsite release, the game feels far below DLSite quality. Like in the battle with Ignus! I did zero attacks and the boss killed himself. In fact, most enemies kill themselves! You could honestly beat the game by just spamming the guard command.

Even if they patched that out, the core combat system is horribly unbalanced. You can only cast a spell if you have the right items beforehand. So you have to spend time planting crops every single day and killing hundreds of enemies to find “magic activators” all just to lose those items after a single battle. It’s so bad, you’ll end up hating battles because every move you make is another half hour of hunting down items again.

The difficulty scaling is horrendous. The 3rd dungeon is easier than the 2nd. The final boss is beaten simply by spamming the same spell seven times. Which also means you better have enough spell-materials beforehand or you’re fucked. Although the game has side quests, you cannot do them at your own leisure. Rather, they’re locked behind regions and boss battles, so they’re done simultaneously with the main quest. There are no side activities.

The game was two hours long for me. I was level 18 when I beat this, but never felt I was getting stronger. Ultimately, a visual novel format would have been better than the completely broken combat system this game was released with.

GRAPHICS

The graphics are completely fucked. There is no collision detection, so you’ll often walk through walls and into the sky. Sprites and environments are stock assets from the RPG Maker library, including the main character sprite! Fal’s sprite has a long dress covering her legs, but her standing art shows a short skirt with black leggings. Every few minutes, your immersion will be completely broken by the endless visual problems.

I purchased the official DLSite release, so I can confirm, this game comes with a cautionary ReadMe file that says “this game was programmed in Japanese and likely has errors”. The developer then includes, a separate text document listing all common errors and things you can do to resolve them. So the developer knew about the problems, but didn’t fix them.

The fatal flaw of this game was in the final battle. You get a message that says “Battlers/Witch not found”. Then the game crashes! This is the final battle of the game! This is not a fan translation, this is the official translation! And yet, a vital game file is completely missing! I actually had to manually rename a different image just to trick the game into working correctly.

There are 10 sex scenes total, but only 5 in a good playthrough. In spite of the game selling the idea of a lust curse causing Fal to get horny, most of the sex scenes have nothing to do with that. Rather, they involve Fal being forced into sex without mention of the curse. It’s almost as if the artist had zero contact with the writer.

The world map is pretty basic. At the center is the player home. If you walk left, you reach the town. If you walk right, you reach the various dungeons of the game. Besides the cave dungeon where you light torches to illuminate the dark, most regions were completely forgettable.

VOICE ACTING AND SOUND EFFECTS (SFX)

Magic Girl Fal has no voice acting.

The sound effects are a mix of stock assets and unique sound effects. However, the writing doesn’t lend itself to creative use of the audio. Especially because the four spirits never fight or give you unique abilities. If they did, the audio could be much more varied.

MUSIC

The soundtrack includes 58 songs total, mostly stock music from the RPG Maker Library. While the title music was enjoyable, it loops and repeats immediately when you start the prologue, making the track feel repetitive. And the rest of the game is no better. The music in the third dungeon almost made me want to shut down the game from how mediocre and basic it is. The heavy digital synth with unrecognizable sounds made my ears bleed.

HENTAI

There are 10 scenes total. The Gallery room is so difficult to find, you will have to go through the first ReadMe file, which tells you to go to the roof of Fal’s house on the left-hand side and interact with the top-right area 10 times in order to open the gallery. Be careful not to do it 11 times or you’ll become max level.

The ten scenes are tentacles, cunnilingus, blowjob, showering, bukkake, vibrator, werewolf, and three gangbangs. As you’ve probably realized, each scene is completely random and disconnected from the other. If you wanted some simple doggystyle or missionary, you’ll be sorely disappointed.

Most scenes are a single CG without variation. There are no animations. Dialogue usually boils down to “it’s too big” and other copypasta stuff like that. One ending features a pregnant standing artwork, but that’s it. Overall, the developer should have stuck with one theme. Why throw in a random vibrator scene and leave people blue-balled? It just felt like too much fluff.

CONCLUDING WORDS

Magic Girl Fal is one of those great reminders for gamers that they should be careful about their purchases and definitely read reviews. This piece of software is riddled with bugs, stock assets, and horrible game mechanics. Sometimes a game is unknown because that’s where it belongs, better left forgotten.
