[PlayStation 4] Pantsu Hunter: Back to the 90s Review
Pantsu Hunter: Back to the 90s from Sometimes You is a point and click visual novel adventure on PS4. Check our Pantsu Hunter: Back to the 90s review!
The first thing you will notice about Pantsu Hunter: Back to the 90s is that It features an art style that will remind you of 1980s-1990s era anime â€“ hence its name. You will follow Kenji, who is out in the world looking for love. He has moved from his home province to the capital to go to college, but in the back of his head, heâ€™s always thinking about finding his one true love. The only reason heâ€™s going to college in the first place is as to not upset his parentsâ€¦ and because, you know, it would be irresponsible of him to not seek a higher education.
Heâ€™s all alone in the city, and heâ€™s been going from one part-time job to another non-stop. Heâ€™s had many jobs since moving to the big city, which has ended up turning him into sort of a â€œjack of all tradesâ€ type of guy. Heâ€™s always struggling to be able to earn enough money to pay his rent, so no job is really out of the question. But, once again, the same goal creeps up: finding love in the big city. Heâ€™s not had any luck on that front, and has yet to find someone with whom he can really click with.
What has he learned from trying to find love with so many girls? Well, in his own words, it seems heâ€™s able to tell a lot about a girlâ€™s personalities based on her panties. Yes, itâ€™s a weird ability, and this sets things up for the gameâ€™s weirder premise: in order to be able to find true love, Kenji sets out on a journey to collect as many panties as possible â€“ the game features a total of 18 panties for players to collect â€“ to be able to find the girl that will be the one that can truly love him.
Pantsu Hunter: Back to the 90s has a ton of endings for you to unlock, and since there is no way to manually save, you will need to start a new game after reaching one of the endings. Each chapter will have a ton of endings for you to find, but the good news is that you can skip all dialogue by pressing the Triangle button, and this will speed things up to get you back on track so that you can work towards getting a different ending as you try to get all of the panties that each girl has.
You will be able to unlock new story path and, therefore, new endings, by paying attention to the dialogue options you select, the items you collect, and the actions you take during each of the gameâ€™s chapters. Without spoiling things too much, Iâ€™ll talk a bit about how to get the first pair of panties in the game. Haruka, the first girl in the game, is having an issue with her VCR, so Kenji, being such a good boy, offers to help her by fixing the VCR during the weekend â€“ after all, heâ€™s a jack of all trades!
When he gets there, he grabs a screwdriver from the main room, and you can then ask to go to the toilet. On your way there, you will notice a pair of panties in the washer, so you set out to find a way to turn off the washer so that you can open it and collect your first pair. You do this by opening a cabinet, moving some plastic bottles to the side, and finding the power cable for the washer, connected to a wall socket. What are you going to do? Well, how about you unplug the washer so that it stops doing its thing? Once you collect the panties from the washer, you should wash your hands with some soap so that they can be clean, so that Kenji can be ready to collect another pair of panties.
Pantsu Hunter: Back to the 90s has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to unlock. Because of how the way the game is structured, technically none of the trophies are missable since youâ€™ll be replaying each of the chapters over and over again to be able to get all of the endings in the game. Along with trophies tied to obtaining a few, some and of the panties in the game, there are also trophies for getting all of the endings in the game, as well as one trophy for seeing all the extra scenes you can unlock from the choices you make in the game.
Pantsu Hunter: Back to the 90s is a lite point and click visual novel adventure on PlayStation with more than enough content to justify its asking price. The premise is and setup will rub some people the wrong way, and this one is definitely not for everyone. The game is not a cross-buy release, and it has two different price points depending on if youâ€™re getting the game on PlayStation 4 (which I played for this review) or on PlayStation Vita – $12.99 and $9.99, respectively.
This Pantsu Hunter: Back to the 90s review is based on a Nintendo Switch copy provided by Sometimes You.
