If you're familiar with "cow clicker", then great. If not, I shall take a long time explain. This is what is referred to as an "incremental game", a game that will eventually beat itself but it can be sped up with user input or microtransactions. The game encourages you to pay money or share the game on social platforms to unlock items and gain currency or upgrades, but it IS beatable without resorting to them.
My opinion on microtransactions is well documented, but despite this, 10 Billion Wives manages to utilize them in a way less obtrusive than Frozen Free Fall. Upgrades can still be earned quickly without paying for shortcuts and this also tricks you into thinking the game is rewarding. It isn't, of course, because all you are doing is TAPPING THE SCREEN.
You have a bunch of wife types to unlock: soldier wife, zombie wife (one man's corpse is another man's, well, you know) and shy wife to name but a few. Each wife comes with their own upgrades. Having wives increases your "love per second" — the rate at which the currency, "love", generates on its own. You can also gain love by touching the screen rapidly, which isn't a euphemism, I SWEAR. Love is then spent on new wives, upgrades, and presents, all of which feed back into the LPS. As I said, "incremental", it plays itself. Also I guess The Beatles were right, because money can't buy you love but it can buy you upgrades. Everybody tells me so.
Is this the real wife? Is this just fantasy?
As you complete "achievement" criteria you unlock permanent +20% LPS growth bonuses, further rewarding you for tapping a loveless cold tablet screen. Well, it's easier than interacting with real women and with far less rejection! I'm totally okay, honest. No need to play the world's smallest violin. Maybe just a little. Fine, quite a bit.
The art style is simply adorable. With doodles of this delightfulness, it is impossible to take the game seriously at all. I wonder if, with its zany concept, it was ever meant to be taken seriously. The allure of the game, though, that's a serious thing. You see, there are these "secret illustrations" that are obtained by levelling a wife a fair bit higher than their max upgrade, plus a final one only unlocked by getting every single achievement. They've all been pretty tame so far, but that final one's gotta be worth the time and effort, right?
Translation isn't 10 Billion Wives' strongest suit. There are some spacing issues with the text, such as when marrying a new type of wife. Some of the translation is dodgy too, seeing as the "active wife" spends all of her time being asleep. Unless that's some really clever play on words. Let's go with that. I've played enough of the game to give it a score and a summary, but I shall continue to play on and off with the intention of unlocking that final image. Come on, after this much effort, it's sure to be lewd. Come on, be lewd.
[Mobile Game Review] 10 Billion HusbandsAugust 26, 2016 at 5:34 pm | Posted in Mobile Games | 2 Comments
Getting tired of going for just an average of six guys for every otome game you play? You want more husbandos? Then why not try the mobile game 10 Billion Husbands (私の旦那 in Japanese), and marry – you get it – billions of different husbands?
Okay, so this game is nothing like an otome game. The gameplay is simple: you just open the app, the game will give you a certain number of Love (or husband, in the Japanese version) per second (LPS), and you use that Love like currency to unlock more husbands, level up your husbands, buy gifts for your husbands, and unlock secret illustrations. You can also tap the screen to get a certain number of Love per tap (LPT), but the max LPT you can get is only 22,000,000,000, so tapping will get useless once you have trillions of LPT. If you’re impatient to unlock everything, you can opt to buy the Husbandplus, which increases the love per second you get, but where’s the fun in that? (You can fully complete the game even without spending real money, so I don’t recommend getting Husbandplus. Though I say was tempted to do so at several occasions ww).
The main goal of the game is to unlock all the husbands, presents, achievements, and secret illustrations, so you really have to get as much love as possible. Unlocking more husbands, buying them gifts, and leveling them up increases your LPS! Secret illustrations and gifts are unlocked once your husband reaches certain levels. Unlocking those can get you achievements, and there are 50 achievements all in all. A special illustration can also be unlocked when you get all 50 achievements.
If I’m not mistaken, I think it took me almost two months to unlock everything? I just played casually though, just made sure that the app is open every time I watch Encantadia ww
Best husband? This guy:
All in all, 10 Billion Husbands is a simple tapping game you can play when you’re bored (like, during commute or when you’re waiting for someone late), so why not give it a try, and feel a sense of accomplishment once you unlock everything? *(*´∀｀*)☆
