_Noltia_ contains three scenarios, which are not related to each other story-
wise. All the three share traditional Japanese adventure gameplay, with “Look
– Talk – Think” verb command pattern, no inventory, no puzzles, and plenty of
The first one can be played as either of its two main characters – the boy
Aruto or the girl Kyoko. Both are not what they seem to be: Aruto is working
for a registry organization in the World of the Dead, and he has to bring
Kyoko to judgment, where it will be decided whether she goes to heaven or hell
after death. However, Kyoko is actually an angel, whose goal is to save Aruto
from killing himself. Both characters have special bars – the well-being of
the protagonist and the proximity of the opponent to the protagonist’s goal.
Command choices can increase or decrease either of these statistics. Wrong
choices can lead to Game Over.
The second scenario casts the player in the role of a high-school student
named Yoshihiko, who is hired by a gym teacher to take erotic pictures of
high-school girls and bring them to him. This scenario allows movement through
school locations (menu command “Move”), and, depending on the player’s
choices, Yoshihiko can succeed in taking the most erotically satisfying
pictures, or achieve one of the “bad” endings.
The third scenario is a realistic depiction of a relationship between a young
man named Eiji and his little sister Miwa. The player can choose to play as
either one of them. Eiji is dating Miwa’s schoolmate, and Miwa tries to
understand the change in her own feelings. In this episode, the gameplay is
rather straight-forward Japanese adventure.
