10 Days With My Devil – New Game Alert – Overall Review
It’s about time! I was so happy about the release of this game, and was waiting so impatiently for it that I would check my app store like twice a day to see if it came out! It’s voltage’s fault for making me impatient because they were promoting it so often on their official facebook page and on their Youtube channel.
So as of right now I’ve played all main and epilogue stories that are available in this game. Right now there are only two, Kakeru Kamui and Satoru Kamagari so I can give a good review based on those two stories about the game in general, without going into individual review of each story. I will do that in my walkthoughs as usual.
Price & Layout: ’10 Days with my Devil’ can be downloaded off the iTunes AppStore for free. You are able to play the prologue and learn about the characters and the premise before you buy the character stories. Each characters’ main story can be bought ‘in-app’ for $3.99 CAD. Epilogues are $1.99 CAD and assuming that the pricing for specials when they come out they will be the same as other voltage games at $2.99 CAD. Like ‘Office Secrets’ they use the introduction video when you start the game and the layout is the same ‘Swipe-Style’ that all recent voltage games have used. It seems that this game has less bugs than it’s predecessors which is always a good thing. So far I’ve yet to get stuck in a loop bug or for the game to crash so I am happy about that.
Premise/Story Concept: I really enjoyed the unique story concept in this particular game. It is by far the most unique out of all english voltage games so far. The concept is basically that you are a regular human that is living a regular life and one day according to fate these (super hot) devils were destined to kill you. Turns out they mess up and you beg them to give you 10 more days to live so you can accomplish something important before you die. They reluctantly agree and you go under their 24 hour surveillance and have to live in their mansion for those ten days, while you do what you need to do. You end up having to pick one of them to be in charge of you for those ten days, and thats when the prologue ends.
Music: The soundtrack to this game is my favourite of all voltage games. Every song is amazing especially the main theme. A lot of the others really remind me of my favourite Ragnorok Online soundtrack songs which makes me really happy because that was a really great game that I loved. I also love the piano solo song that is played at the sad heartfelt moments. Every song in this soundtrack hits a soft spot for me and it just enhances the atmosphere and impact of the story.
Characters/Sprites: I CANNOT help but fangirl in this section because MAN, when I played the prologue and met the characters I got sooo excited. These are by far the sexiest voltage characters EVER. And I will explain why. Maybe they’ve been influenced by other mainstream otome games and anime because they all look like my favourite characters. More likely its probably just the best coincidence EVER. There are 6 choose-able characters so far, and like I said earlier only two of them are available to play so far. Every expression from every sprite that I’ve seen is amazing. They really made everything in this game perfect, especially their blushing expressions. Even your close girlfriend’s sprite is beautiful. Anyway, without further adieu, here they are!
Doesn’t he look like a older sexier version of Makoto from Free! Iwatobi Swim Club? He also reminds me a bit of Subaru from ‘My Sweet Bodyguard’ and Although I love Subaru I prefer Kakeru’s personality and hair and style more. He is just overall gorgeous and sexy.
He is one of the available characters! I played his first.
Second available right now is Satoru Kamagari.
He reminds me a bit of Hikaru Hitachiin from ‘Ouran Highschool Host Club’. His character is pretty hot especially in his reward pictures. And has a very interesting personality, one that we have never really come across in voltage games before.
Next is my MOST ANTICIPATED CHARACTER!!!
He makes me want to die! He looks like cross between Ren Jinguji from Uta no Prince Sama and Kaname Asahina from Brothers Conflict, who have the same Seiyuu – Junichi Suwabe. Haruhito’s playboy relaxed personality also matches these characters perfectly. He has such a sexy deep voice and just imagining that voice every time Haruhito says something make me nosebleed till I pass out! I want to play his story soo bad!
Second most anticipated character is Shiki Kurobane!
A SERIOUSLY SEXY cross between my favourite anime/game characters Saito Hajime from ‘Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan’ and Azusa Asahina from ‘Brothers Conflict’ who is my other favourite character in BroCon. Again both characters have the same voice actor which is the super serious and sexy Toriumi Kousuke who is my favrourite Seiyuu of all time. His voice makes me go into a coma every time I hear it (especially in romance Drama CD’s. He makes me want to die!) The only thing with Shiki is that his personality doesnt match those of my favourite Toriumi characters. They are quiet gentleman types while Shiki is basically Takuto (from Love Letter from Thief X) on steroids. He’s super excessively rude and tsundere, which although I love it, it throws me off with the way I think a character that looks like Saito should act.
Meguru Kurobane is the last of the demons you will be living with.
He is the token younger character who looks to me like a cute clean-cut version of Shin from NANA. He is very innocent and sweet that you would never guess in a million years that he was a demon. When he talks I imagine Otoya Ittoki’s voice from UtaPri who’s seiyuu is Takuma Terashima. I love sweet guys like this as much as I love the sexy Tsun characters like Satoru or Shin.
Rein Isaka is the Last character in this sexy supernatural Line up.
You won’t meet him in the prologue so he stays mysterious until you play Kakeru’s route. I love the way he looks, his hair and smile. He is just as sexy as the demons but this handsome guy is an ANGEL! But I hope that the way they portray him in Kakeru’s route is not the same as his personality in his own. In Kakeru’s route the way he is portrayed is totally the opposite of how he looks. Play it and you will be horrified and agree with me. I really hope this route will be just as amazing as the others I’ve played.
Rewards: I’m happy with the reward pictures so far. We get 5 reward pictures for each main route and some very sweet emails from the characters. I was worried after the lack of pictures in the main stories for ‘Office Secrets’ that we would be lacking in this one as well but I’m glad that we get a good amount. They aren’t as intimate as I would like them to be but they are very good pictures. They are drawn very well. I’m sure in the epilogues sequels and side stories they will become more intimate pictures.
Overall: This actually might be my new favourite Voltage game. We will have to see once all characters are available for play. ‘My Forged Wedding’ still is at the top of my list because of the level of emotional intimacy that we experience in every story in that game. But, this game has something that most other voltage games lack. The problems that arise from you and your lover trying to go against the world to cheat death gives a more serious depth that I’ve found only in one other game – Shall we Date: Ninja Love. The element of danger and death really gives a huge impact on the emotional involvement that you have in this game. You are not only fighting for love but fighting for your life! And I love that about this game.
Try It out for yourself! The App & prologue are Free!
