BUT enough about me — Let’s get back to discussing Love Revo. I think when I first played it a few years ago I was confused about how large the girl actually was. I think I might download it (and review it at some point). which you can grab here for IOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/burn-your-fat-me!! mt=8 and here for android https://play.google.com/store/apps/details? id=jp.funsolution.nensho_eng&hl=en Actually the news of the release of the above Otome weight loss IOS app is what prompted me to want to replay Love Revo.
However, despite the sort of “bad message” that this sends to girls, this is still an entertaining, fun, and very unique concept with cute anime art and quirky characters. You have to juggle losing weight with studying, and dating boys, and keep your stress low.
It uses realistic workouts which target different muscle groups and offers a large variety of things to do including mini-games, dating the guys, studying, shopping, and working out.
Plus it makes up for what it lacks by what new elements it brings to the table, such as the weight loss and work outs. To be fair, similar games such as Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side, also don’t have much story. TMGS presents the story in a more “compelling” way…
The downfall here in Girlish Love Revo is that there’s only one or two “scenes” for each date spot; and not many questions to ask when walking guys home, and only one answer, and no new questions unlock etc as you grow closer to the guys.
I like this ending because it sorta addresses my main complaint with the game having a rather negative message for young girls. But not as good in terms of story and character development as some other Otome games out there, but perhaps more fun than them in terms of gameplay and variety of things to do within the game.
Publisher: Idea Factory Release Date: January 2006 (Japan only) Platform: Nintendo DS (It was also later ported to windows PCs but there’s no english translation patch for that version) Where to Buy: bucks on Amazon at time of this review. Geeky: Sweetie: Concept: 7/10 The concept of the game rubs me the wrong way a bit, as mentioned; most of the guys are assholes and only treat you like an actual human being when you begin to lose weight.
Okay, fine, if you want to lose weight, that’s cool. once you get your weight down to 89 KG or less, the guys begin to be nice to you… ”; but still, any game that can make a fat girl want to exercise, has some merit I guess.
I want to lose weight too; but you know, for the right reasons, like not getting diabetes, and being able to keep up with more fit friends and family when they want to go outdoors and be active and well to look and feel better for myself. My weight has never been an issue for any of the guys I dated, except for one, and he was an abusive asshole and not worth all the time and effort I put into things. But no, actually she’s 220 lbs because she’s 100 KG when the game starts, about the same or close to my weight, so yeah, my bad. There’s also a new recently released, unrelated but similar Otome IOS Iphone Ipad game that helps you work out.
It focuses on weight loss from different core muscle groups such as arms, legs, abs, face, whole body, etc. There are a huge number of different exercises that target the different muscle groups and you get better results by mixing up your workout routine c.
