Moonlight Dating Sim

Author: Bomee
Availability: Free, Online/browser
Format: Dating Sim
Genre: Supernatural
Rating: Teen
My Score: 3.5 out of 5

Found at www.Newgrounds.com OR DeviantArt.com

In Moonlight Dating Sim, you play Jenna Moonlight, a half-vampire witch. Vampires have taken over the world, led by their Blood Prince, and it's up to you to kill him. Or join him. Or help him. There's quite a few directions you can go with it, really.

I think I need an additional genre to apply to this game, since "Dating Sim" doesn't seem to cover all the aspects of it. There's a bit of action, as you have the option to try to kill people in addition to trying to date them. Overall, it's a neat change of pace from the usual dating sim fare, and one that I can appreciate.

The tone is kind of dark and haunting, and I like the backgrounds. As with bomee's other games, there is a sense of unpolishedness about it; however, it's not as bad as some games I could mention (*cough* DatingSimAcademy *cough*). It definitely gets high marks for being interesting and unusual, as it's more than just choosing a suitor (although there is that).

So what do you pick? Hang out with the vampire hunters, or become a vampire queen? >:)
