    Clever, original and genuinely pleasing to play, this is easily worth the 8.99 pounds you'll pay for it on Steam. [Sept 2009, p.82]

    For the amount of fun, hilarity, and challenge it provides, I would say it's well worth it. But don't get this game if you're unwilling to do plenty of reading. To play this game, you need a computer with a mouse, and a fairly ranged knowledge of English vocabulary.
  3. Maybe not for the hardcore gamer, Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble will really only appeal to niche market, but it is a wonderfully crafted game that rewards those who just want to sit back and be enthralled by a simple yet clever game that is completely unique in many ways.
  4. This is a great game for parents of kids in their tweens. The game isn’t overly difficult but not easy enough that anyone can breeze through it. For an independent title, making a game like this must have been quite a challenge. At the same time, I could see a bigger developer picking this up and porting it to the DS as it would work really well on that system.
  5. Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble! offers a handful of fun mini-games, a good story, and a cast of characters you'll enjoy spending time with.

It's a board game with RPG elements and mini-games, which already sounds weird enough, but on top of that, it's 1920's themed and you control a gaggle of headstrong high school girls. You'll progress the story, level up your girls' skills, and gain power-ups (in the form of gossip and boyfriends) by completing mini-games against the NPCs which include simplified poker (fib), decode the sentence (expose secret), figure out the pattern (flirt) and if you've played any Monkey Island titles, the taunt mini-game will be familiar. Gameplay is casual but the story and game board presentation keep it interesting. The variety and depth of each girl you can have in your gang is pretty refreshing. Keep an open mind and this game pays off. Full Review »

    I was going to pass this game up, but the reviews were too good to ignore, and I'm always for taking shots and new, inventive genres. ThisI was going to pass this game up, but the reviews were too good to ignore, and I'm always for taking shots and new, inventive genres. This game, however, was simply not fun in a ton of ways. First of all, the game is merely a set of a few entirely uninteresting mini games. The games are either extremely easy or extremely random, and thus there's very little for you to do that gives you a sense of accomplishment. The story is a little bit fun if you like tongue-in-cheek cliches, but even that concept is cliche in and of itself nowadays. The board-game motif is a bit forced and does nothing to further the gameplay. All in all, I'd pass. I bought it for $3 on sale and I feel like I wasted even that money. Full Review »

    I'm not sure why this is so highly rated... don't get me wrong, it's not bad I guess but an 80 score is just not accurate, hence why I decidedI'm not sure why this is so highly rated... don't get me wrong, it's not bad I guess but an 80 score is just not accurate, hence why I decided to write this review.

    Lets start with the good: there is a fun plot in that you control a bunch of high school girls, and it has an RPGish element to it where you choose different stats to level up into and make your girls better at whatever you want them to do.

    The cons: I know the major selling point is probably going to be the pricetag - but if you want the honest truth, I have played free games that were more entertaining.

    The minigames were what I was expecting to have the most fun with, but as another reviewer mentioned, there is a lot of luck involved. It almost takes the fun out of leveling up your girls because with good luck you can win anyways - I found myself reloading just so I would succeed and reloading a game isn't fun, nor do I learn how to improve because it was just bad luck that I lost in the first place.

    The other cons are that the interface is a pain to maneuver through - you have to choose where to go and scroll around the map which takes up unnecessary time if they simply implemented a map or quick-travel system.

    The one and only minigame that actually does feel like it uses some skill and past experience (and that was fun) was the taunting minigame. There, even if you lose, you learn new retorts and insults to trade with for the next taunting minigame.

    I enjoy games where they at least tried to come up with something unique and so it passes above a 5 for me simply for that.
