It’s a surprisingly good stealth game even though it is in early development. There’s plenty of content and the graphics are nice; it’s sure to keep you enthralled for hours!.
Psychotic killer on the loose!
Yandere Simulator is an open world sandbox game that mirrors many anime concepts.
While Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest provide full-featured JRPG experiences, they can be predictable and repetitive. In Yandere Simulator, you take the role of a jealous girl in love with her senpai. You will do whatever you can to get closer to him, and that includes murder! Few games have such a surprising storyline. There are enough plots to keep you engaged.
It’s the classic “girl loves boy” situation but with an intriguing twist. You are Yandere-Chan, a high school student, too shy to tell the senpai she loves how she feels. You are gentle and loving, but this is not a twee story, because you are also psychotic! You become violent when the senpai does not return your love.
What can you do? You can sabotage him of course. Any girl that comes close to him, you have to make them disappear. Permanently.
This is a demo version of the game, so there’s no win condition. What’s interesting is how the game unfolds; you discover your options as you play, which makes it feel open and responsive.. You have competition for your senpai’s love, so you’ll need to deal with that in any way you can. This usually results in more dead students!
You track schedules, photos, teachers, and do everything you can to mislead the police. Yandere Simulator started more as a joke on the yandere trope in anime. But it’s become a game that provides many hours of creative experimentation.
While the violent concepts make sense with the subject matter, the level of blood-spatter seems to fight the anime art style that’s used in the game. This disconnect is often jarring. If you’re looking for a cute-sy anime game, this is one of the signs that it’s not for you.
Also keep in mind that the game is still under development. Basic movement, like crouching, isn’t available here. You aren’t able to use the phone, which is a crucial element to the game. This development limbo also lends itself to app instability. There are occasional drops in framerate and crashing.
Where can you run this program?
This game can be run on any device with Android 4.3 or later.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. There are many JRPGs with a combination of whole worlds with exciting graphics and fun, fast-moving action. Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Chrono Trigger are just 3 that come to mind, although none provide the psychotic fun of Yandere Simulator.
Although a demo, Yandere Simulator provides a rich and diverse simulation with enough characters, situations, and articles for you to manage to keep you enthralled for many hours.
Should you download it?
Yes. If murder can be fun, then this is it.
