A new girl begins her final year at Northmain College. Will she find friendship or love in one year?
The game takes place in England and the story depends on which club you join, which part-time job you take, and which boy you pursue or girl you hang out with the whole year. In all reality, there’s not a whole lot to say about it. Just that the main character reacts differently to each boy. You can pursue Marius, Shuppin, Rhett (my personal favorite), Beck, Per, or the secret character (also my favorite, what I can only pick one?). The friendships you can strengthen are Merle, Dys, Lufika, Lamb (my favorite), or Petime.
As I said earlier, you can pick what club to join or what part-time job you get. Each club has a connection with a specific boy. You can go on dates with them, buy birthday presents for them and even make a pancake for them. You don’t have a romantic attachment to any of the girls but if you complete their friendship path without pursuing a boy, you can get an item from them. During the week, you select an activity to do that will increase a certain stat. Putting on makeup increases your charm, hanging out increases your social, studying increases your intelligence, going to the gym increases your athletics and resting decreases your stress. On Saturday, you can check your mail from Facemate and read the monthly fashion column (you don’t have to follow that to the letter unless you’re dating Beck). Each boy likes a specific style that you can shop for on that day.
You can also make dates, check your relationship status in your diary, or go out and boost your skills. You also have mock exams and A-level ones to complete throughout the year. How high your stats are affects how well you do.
It’s not deep and yet it’s addicting. I give it 6 out of 10, perfect to play when you have little brainpower.
