Merui loves video games, especially her favorite MMORPG, Rivenwell Online. Merui also has a very short temper, so when some JERK named Alistair steals a rare item from her, she's determined to exact revenge on him. Unfortunately, she has no idea who he is in real life. But hey, that's never stopped anyone, right? Take control of Merui and make new friends, balance schoolwork and fun, go shopping, search for the culprit, and maybe even discover a new romance.
I reeeally enjoyed this game! It's not one of the best, I don't even try to make it better than it is. It's not extraordinary in any way. But if you're bored and have some time it's a funny and free way of passing time. Let me tell you anyway what I enjoyed about playing RE: Alistair++!
First of all: you have three love interests (the typical guys: one nerdy glasses guy, a sporty basketball guy and the shy cutie guy) - one of them is the culprit you're searching for (I don't know but I knew who it was after 10 minutes, because it's obvious! ;o). The game changes between two worlds: the online world and "real life". While the game plays in "real life" is the online world only for collecting hints.
The sad thing is just if you do everything right you get a date with your person of choice. It's nearly impossible to get a date when you don't wear the right clothes, buy the right stuff, etc. Well, cheating is bad. But don't be able to get an ending is even worse. ;)
