REVIEW: Pretty Girls Klondike Solitaire PLUS on PC (Steam)

Review by Jon Donnis
I have covered many of the "Pretty Girls" releases, by now you should know the routine, take a classic simple to play game, wrap it within the Pretty Girls universe, and job done.

"Pretty Girls Klondike Solitaire PLUS" from ZOO Corporation delivers a delightful twist on the classic game of solitaire, immersing players in an anime-inspired world with Klondike rules. With its charming anime-style graphics, easy-to-play gameplay, and impressive presentation, this title adds a fresh layer of excitement to the timeless card game.

The game offers a unique twist by incorporating 11 beautiful girl characters, each with their own distinctive personalities and stories. Engaging with them adds an element of intrigue as you progress through the solitaire challenges. The diverse cast of characters, from cool beauties to Tsundere personalities, enhances the gameplay experience and gives players an incentive to clear stages and unlock stylish costumes for the girls.

The various difficulty levels add a layer of challenge to the traditional Klondike solitaire game, but also rewards players with costume changes as they make progress. Dressing up the characters in various outfits adds a fun and rewarding aspect to the game, offering a creative outlet for players to express their style preferences.

The inclusion of a Diorama mode is a classic part of the Pretty Girls games, allowing players to place multiple characters in different settings, customize their expressions, and change their costumes. The ability to save and load scenes encourages creativity, letting players craft their ideal scenarios and capture snapshots of their creations.

The game does a commendable job of integrating the anime aesthetic into the solitaire gameplay. The characters are beautifully designed, and the voice acting in Japanese adds an extra layer of authenticity. The game's interface is intuitive, making it easy for both newcomers and seasoned players to dive into the solitaire action.

Here is an example of some of the characters and their bios.

- The daughter of the Jounouchi family, a large conglomerate. She has a bright and friendly personality with the grace of a celebrity. She plays the role of a maid-maker among her close female friends.

Shion - The daughter of the famous Arisugawa family. She has a soft demeanor and a quiet personality. She is considered by those around her to be a beauty because of her personality and good looks.

Ayame - She is the daughter-in-law of the heir to the famous Fujishima family, and is held in awe by all concerned for her ability to manage the Fujishima family.

While "Pretty Girls Klondike Solitaire PLUS" offers an enchanting experience overall, there's room for a few enhancements. Expanding on the variety of backgrounds and settings for the Diorama mode could further boost its creative potential. Additionally, introducing more challenging gameplay modes or power-ups could add depth to the solitaire mechanics.

In conclusion, "Pretty Girls Klondike Solitaire PLUS" is a captivating addition to the "Pretty Girls" series, successfully blending Klondike solitaire rules with an engaging anime-inspired universe. With its charming character designs, easy-to-understand gameplay, and the allure of dressing up the characters, this title is a must-try for fans of both solitaire and anime aesthetics. ZOO Corporation's dedication to creating an enjoyable and visually appealing experience earns this game a solid 8 out of 10.
