[PlayStation 4] Pretty Girls Panic! Review
Pretty Girls Panic! from eastasiasoft and ZOO Corporation is a new take on a classic puzzle game. Check out our Pretty Girls Panic! review!
Pretty Girls Panic! from eastasiasoft and ZOO Corporation is a new take on a classic puzzle game. We previously got Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic! which features the same gameplay mechanics as Pretty Girls Panic! That means this one pays homage to Qix, a classic puzzle game in which you have to use your character to cut out parts of the playing area by completing squares or rectangles. Once you’ve managed to clear 75% of the playing area, you’ll complete the level and will get an image of the female character underneath.
Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic! featured an all-female cast of characters that had a dose of mecha musume fan service. For Pretty Girls Panic! the once again all-female cast of characters does dive into fan service territory, but they won’t be sporting large guns of any type and will only showcase outfits with less cloth as you progress further and further into their sets of stages.
You’ll be taking on single-screen puzzle stages and will be in control of an octopus wearing a bandana. All you have to worry about to control this octopus is use the left analog stick or the D-Pad to move around the playing area, as you avoid touching any of the enemies or the attacks of the ones that shoot at you. You also need to be aware of how if an enemy or one of their shots touches one of your lines before you complete a square or rectangle, then you will be destroyed and will lose a life. If you complete a section of the stage where a power-up is located, you will receive its benefits. These include a power-up that will give you a boost in speed, one that will make all enemies freeze in their tracks, and another one that will make you invincible for a short period of time.
As was the case for Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic!, Pretty Girls Panic! also has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy to add to your collection. The list has 14 Silver trophies in 7 Gold trophies, and as long as you play every level in the game, you’ll unlock the Platinum in around 30 minutes or so, as long as you play the game in the Easy difficulty setting.
If you enjoyed Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic!, then you’re going to have fun with Pretty Girls Panic! since the gameplay mechanics remain the same. You get a new character to control, new enemies to defeat or avoid, and new girls to meet, although the fan service might rub some people the wrong way since this one is Rated M for Mature. Pretty Girls Panic! is out on PlayStation 4 for a $5.99 price.
