1. Itsuka no Sora いつかの空  Sweet Basil 1
Our hero is a sophomore college student living by himself. He has a childhood friend that is a girl, but he doesn't have a real girlfriend. His hope of finding someone special is fading away when his part time job eats up his time. Then he meets Eri, who happens to have lost her memory. The encounter with Eri leads our hero towards his destiny and forces him to search for his true identity...
System and town real time change impress, but at the expense of game content. Each of seven heroines has only 4-5 events resulting in short individual routes. Voice actors recompensate for that only partially.

3. Furimuite Cool Eye's 振り向いてCOOL Eye’S  Parade
School manga research club is in pinch! It only has three members and will have to disband unless two more members are found within a month. Main character should also recruit only among the girls in order not to repeat last year's mistake when a lot of people had to quit the club due to romantic problems. Is it possible to save the club?
Unfortunately, scenario is thin, and it's more like fast confession, then H to imbue desire to participate in the club activities. Graphics are beautiful.
4. Ichigo-Da いちご打  Witch 1

5. Prism Sound プリズムサウンド  Airyu
Main character tried to gather friends for a band to make "shining sound" together. That dream was forgotten, but now a year later he repeats that attempt.
There are very few choices. Unique character design is the main appeal point. Scenario is just right in order not to get bored, but it's mostly thanks to support cast and not the heroines.
6. Review of Brind Summer Vacation レビューオフ Brind Summer Vacation  Sight
Main character is an upcoming manga writer with one magical girl story to receive anime adaptation. He organizes a party to meet offline with the fans. Thirteen people have gathered, but even though nicknames are known, noone knows each others faces. What will come out of this party?
It's a pure love story about first experience, so with little H and quite a boring overall. There are as many as 12 heroines. Lots of bugs and graphical glitches even with patch applied.
7. Ame Yadori 雨やどり  E.G.O.
Time starts to flow very fast with every day being busy and without a moment to spare. Main character sees a girl stilling alone in the rain and lends her a hand. Girl's name is Mio.
This is a heartwarming story about three girls with cat ears (plus two normal heroines), but the quantity and darkness of H scenes easily writes this game into nukige department. First five days are given for common route and last five days for heroine route. Quite a specialized work trying to appeal to different players.
8. Prism Palette プリズムパレット  Broccoli
A love adventure simulator that follows the adventures of the main character Masaki Shirai while he lives a peaceful school life surrounded by beautiful classmates.
A normal school SIM with everyday schedule and stuff.
9. Igougata Kyokuchi Geigeki Tenshi Nanako ~Kaku Tatakaeri, Otome-tachi~ イ号型局地迎撃天使NANAKO～かく戦えり、乙女達～  Ape & Frog
Humans have built a huge defensive city 3000 meters underground to save themselves from mysterious "vector" enemies. However, as resources get exhausted in constant battles, humankind throws last funds into new type of weapon IMA-01 Nanako. This weapon is given to main character as the last hope for survival.
RPG with heroines looking like cosplayers. Each day is divided into four sections to perform commands. And there is also H training of girls ... how else would they learn new magic and skills?
10. Little Monica Monogatari リトルモニカ物語  Rune
The town of Little Monica is famous for its vast culture of arts, especially music. Will is an orphan who used to live with his three friends in Little Monica, however he has long since moved out of the town. Many years later, Will decides to go back to the town to see his three friends: Celia, Mei, and Tina. Upon arrival, Will is surprised to discover that Little Monica is no longer the very cultural city it used to be. Instead, no music is allowed in the city...
H event triggers the very first day and pretty much every day after that, so it's a nukige under innocent cover. Stupid incidents happen to the sisters like UFO and the like making up for a comedy. In the end it's nothing but an ero-tilt moege.
11. Eve: The Fatal Attraction EVE: The Fatal Attraction  C's Ware 1
"Eve: The Fatal Attraction" is a chapter in EVE series, and is based on the hentai PC game Adam: The Double Factor. Its scenario was expanded in this game up to the point of being a sequel to "Adam". It adds many Eve: Burst Error and Eve: The Lost One references, lots of new events, 2 more days and proper ending to the game.
You control the two main heroes of the game, the young careless detective Kojiroh and the sexy red-haired super-spy Marina. The events of the game are connected to their previous investigation (in Eve Burst Error). Kojiroh's ex-girlfriend and colleague, Yayoi Katsuragi, receives a case: somebody is threatening the life of two young girls, Mika and Miki, the daughters of the owner of the powerful Andou Corporation. Naturally, Yayoi needs Kojiroh's help, and here the investigation truly begins!
Like in other Eve games, you control two characters in two "scenarios", and sometimes the cooperation between them is necessary. The game utilizes the same "Touchable View" that was implemented in "Adam": you interact with the environment and with the characters not by selecting menu options, but by moving the cursor around and clicking on objects, like in Western point-and-click adventures.
I already reviewed the game earlier.
12. Memories Off 2nd  KID 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

You can either make decisions to salvage Ken's relationship with Hotaru or chase after another girl.
There are English reviews.
13. Z.O.E. 2173 Testament ゾーン オブ エンダーズ 2173 テスタメント  Konami 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
The story is set within the Zone of the Enders universe. It is 2173 and humankind, in the search for a valuable resource called Metatron, has expanded its reaches to Mars and the moons of Jupiter, and full colonies have been established. However, Earth keeps a tight reign over the colonials, known by the derogatory term "Enders", and discrimination is commonplace. Food supplies are short, movement of citizens is controlled, and many Mars inhabitants have tried to rise up against Earth, but to little avail.
The game follows the story of a 17-year old boy named Cage Midwell, a worker upon the interplanetary express ship "Bonaparte III" with his close friend (and idol) Ares Enduwa. However, on a routine journey, Cage spots a woman creeping into the cargo holds, and follows her. As he does this, the ship is attacked by a powerful black Orbital Frame. Cage and the girl, who introduces herself as Myona Alderan, climb into a mysterious LEV held within the ship and escape, eventually crash-landing on Mars. They are quickly caught and are accused of being the ones responsible for the crash. On top of this, Myona has completely lost her memory. However, shortly after their imprisonment, they are freed by an "Anti-Terrestrial League" leader called Deckson Geyse. His faction, BIS (Born In Space), quickly come and rescue them, and Cage finds himself caught up in the escalating conflict between Earth and Mars.

|14. Ashita mo Kitto Hare 明日もきっと晴れ♪  Forte|
Main character goes to school in a small seaside town. Swimming, sunbathing, culture festival... there are many events to enjoy in summer. Tomorrow will definitely be sunny.
Almost zero difficulty, just raising favorability is enough. Genre is comedy. Six heroines overall with short routes and almost no H events. But bonus 7th scenario is unexpectedly good.

16. Kanojo no Negau Koto. Boku no Omou Koto 彼女の願うこと。ぼくの思うこと。  Project-μ 1
Luke lost the vision of his left eye as a child. Although he can't see with that eye, he has the ability to read people's minds. Because of this power, he stays away from society; he gets emotionally disturbed when he reads people's minds. One day however, a young boy named Rickie is reflected in his eye. Rickie is a lost soul wondering around. One day, he meets a girl carrying a black cat. This girl's name is Mikage, and she changes his life. Luke also happens to meet a girl named Mitsuki. He starts to see the world more openly. Luke and Rickie. . .
Two boys from parallel dimensions, who eventually merge into one. This is an AVG game using two characters as a single identity. On Rickie's side, there are other characters besides Mikage. You'll find Keri, the girl who looks like Mikage but has a completely different personality, and the mysterious girl, Tory. The new system in this game is called the, "S-Cube system." It's an evolution of digital comics, and it is a completely new system. This is a "new type" of game, not only because of the system, but also because you're using two characters as one identity. If you're looking for something new, this is the game for you!
Best thing in the game is theater-imitating ever-changing perspective. Protagonist is divided and main aim of the game is searching for oneself. Game also features many comedy elements even though individual stories are quite dark. An experimental work for those unsatisfied with the state of the industry.
17. Koumaroku 降魔録  Tama-SoftLegendary spiritual festival "Sekairoko Peak" gathered and sealed a lot of demons in one place. Due to an ancient curse various monster incidents started to occur in the vicinity.
Thanks to existence of "demonist" monks curse never spread outside its initial location.
Main character is one of demonists who uses his skills to defeat demons. Two women always accompany him in his travels. Any day demon seal may break, and such demon hunters are the only hope of the world.
There are only two heroines to capture, but each has lots and lots of H scene patters, including tentacles. The number of endings is four. The actual atmosphere and contents of the game are inspirational and really about demon fighting. Music is great here. It's a chunige, and I like it despite the ero-tilt.
18. Love Negotiator ラブ・ネゴシエイター  Liar-soft
AD 2030, place is new capital built at Tokyo Bay. Main character is a romance negotiator who helps shy boys by winning negotiation battles with girls persuading them to pursue romance relations. But one day he gets involved in a huge conspiracy with number of cases piled up and intertwined.
It's basically a bakage with negotiation battles. Battles usually have three variants of phrases with some being great choices and some poor ones. Poor choices lead to insult endings, great choices to pure love ones. Composition reminds TV dorama with 7 episodes each featuring a short story. Enjoyable game for bakage enthusiasts.
19. Miracle Twins: Koi no Mahou o Anata ni みらくるツインズ 恋の魔法を貴方に  Future
A town engulfed in evil atmosphere. But in the mids of it is a guardian angel girl who protects the town. She is a usual girl who found a magical item to turn into a warrior of justice. For that reason she is targeted by evil forces. Together with main character and another girl able for transformation they fight for the peace of this town.
A comedy with crisp H scenes. Battles are made in janken type - attack, defense, magic. There are seven chapters, but overall operation is heavy. First six chapters are complimentary comedies, and seventh is suddenly serious development. Animation is used wisely.
20. Rije ~Saisei no Ubugoe~ リジェ ～再生の産声～  Sarang 1
Rosu is a sleepless city where many kinds of people gather seeking fame and fortune. Even though the city is losing its main industry, it's still bustling.

As a result of the 'investigation part,' the 'truth part' will appear. Your actions in the first part will directly affect the ending! What tragedy occurred 23 years ago? Will Kyoichi be able to solve the disappearances?
A hard-boiled detective adventure, but with a definite erotic tilt. Somehow it becomes a general thing that hard boiled adventures have to deal with prostitutes and insults which in the end devaluates the story and the genre as a whole. On the positive side game features film technique of zooming and scrolling which also adds up to decadent world atmosphere.
21. V.G. Re-birth  Giga
A visual novel game in which the player plays the part of a reporter working on a story about the V.G. competition. The game also introduces the new character Sakuragi Hiyori. Depending on the choices the player makes, he/she will be paired with Yuka, Tamao or Reimi.
V.G. Rebirth Dash:
An update to V.G. Rebirth which includes nearly every other non-boss character (Yuuki Ayako is absent as she is a lesbian) as an option to pair with the player. It also introduces the new character Hatano Keiko.
For that advances fighting woman theme for sex appeal. It's more like a fan story - to be able to talk to heroines from previous haves. Scenario is very short and is over upon tournament win.

In the flow of time an ancient phantasm nobody remembers reoccurs again. Where is humanity guided to?
Past and present intersect here...
Game resembling Experiments Lain in concept, design and atmosphere. There are many short stories (memories) in each chapter, and player accesses them in random order. But complex composition and darker themes make game difficult to read. Another experiment that can be treated in both favorable and bashing way.
