Tropical Liquor (PC) review
"HuniePop lite -- tastes great, less filling"
HuniePop didn’t quite set the world on its ear by meshing a pervy date sim with a puzzle game using a visual novel interface, but it was a uniquely blended dram which managed to champion a new genre of sorts where there wasn’t one before. And Tropical Liquor tries to copy it.
For the most part, Tropical Liquor is a competent clone, presenting a bevy of beauties for you to court at the all-inclusive resort of your dreams. You are at the resort for 30 days -- that’s a hell of a getaway, amirite? You must have held down your job for a good stretch to earn that kind of vacation time. Anyway, Naomi is the first girl you meet, and she is the kind-hearted tour guide/tutorial.
You can continue to pursue her heart once you’ve figured out how to play the game, or you can move onto someone you’ve really had your eye on instead. The game experience is very straightforward: there’s an AM and a PM with which to work, and in the daytime, you can work an entire day (apparently there are all kinds of odd jobs on offer for tourists that I was unaware of) and pull in money towards buying the girls gifts. Or, you could just work a half-day, and leave the evening free. I found that it’s best to work your tail off for the first few days and stack enough coin to pretty much purchase every gift available in the gift shop so that you’ve got everything on hand to win any given girl’s affection at any given time.
