A magical girl confronts reality, April 16, 2016
In this game, you flash back and forth between two different times; yesterday, when you were a Stellar Girl, and now as a mundane human.

The game is mostly choosing the order of four options, moving to a new scene, and repeating. I found myself eager to know what happened the day before. I found the game exciting.

However, I didn't feel strongly connected to the protagonist, and I felt satisfied with my first playthrough without exploring more options.

Worthwhile, January 26, 2016
Unusually elegant presentation/UI for a Twine game. It's a magical girl game, but you don't need to be familiar with the genre to enjoy it.

Until the end, this is dynamic fiction rather than interactive fiction, but the format carries the story well - there's a certain poetic rhythm to it. Still, the repetition can become frustrating.

Powerpuff Sailormoon, January 22, 2016

This was unexpectedly fine. After Investigative Journalism, I already place this author among some of the best from the twine community. should try other titles from her.

This is a more human retelling of Sailormoon, Powerpuff Girls and other anime inspired superpower girl teams. It's quite short, the narrative intermingled with flashbacks, from today to yesterday, and the best text layout I've ever witnessed on mobile.

There's a choice interface that you have to exhaust through. They are presented as a regular turn-based JRPG combat menu. Until almost to the end, when that breaks apart like most things in real life.

enjoyable, but perhaps lacking a bit more superpower punch.
