About the Storya.k.a. Ideal High School
A solid game world with well developed characters ...
Ideal High School is about, funnily enough, a high school where most denizens thereof can be blackmailed into sexual favors. I would have ended the previous sentence with "fairly easily" except that there is nothing easy about it. In fact, very little comes easy to the player at all in this game.
What we do have in Ideal High School is an expansive environment. The game has a multitude of rooms, locals, characters and subplots.

The design is fine, but the implementation is only passable, with that "first-time author" feel (but that's okay, we're not here to look at tables and scenery, are we?). Where the game shines is in the variety of NPCs and the skill the author used when writing them. All have their own personalities (unfortunately too often stereotyped, but a bit less so than you would expect of a school romp), and their responses are varied and unique (and pretty much too eager, but that's the kind of game this is).
The puzzles were generally fair, although there were a couple of actions that really needed more synonyms implemented (Spoiler - click to show)(getting the oregano and climbing through the window).
I definitely recommend this (with a walkthrough handy) as both a look back and as a decent game.
