Between the site’s scheduling and the amount of great looking indie titles releasing every month, there sometimes just isn’t time to shine a detailed spotlight on every single one of them. As such, our QuickShot reviews are designed to provide smaller bitesized reviews on a few other releases along with some footage of it in action!
This may very well be one of the shortest reviews that I’ve ever done for the site. I’ve covered simple games before; heck, I’ve even covered simple games that tack on anime boobies as a selling point, but they’ve usually had at least something to talk about. Blackjack Waifu Tour on the other hand essentially reviews itself by the name alone. There’s Blackjack. There’re Waifus. And that’s the game.
Not that that’s necessarily a criticism, as the cheap price point certainly permits such simplicity. Opening up the game offers you the option to choose between playing Blackjack and browsing the gallery unlocks. Sadly the game doesn’t support the pro controller, meaning that you may end up having to drift your way through instead like I did.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Blackjack has you being dealt two cards. Each card has a value, and the goal is to get as close to 21 as possible. Jacks, Queens, and Kings count for 10; whereas the Ace can be counted as a 1 or an 11, depending on what suits you best. You can get another card at the risk of going bust, or you can stick with what you’ve got. The goal is to gamble your chips with the hope of winning more, but if the dealer is closer to 21 then you lose any chips you’ve put down.
Winning a hand also has the added bonus of unlocking cards for the gallery, which you can view at your pleasure. They’re well drawn, with particular attention being paid to the girls’ ‘assets’, giving you the chance to take a break from gambling by staring at some boobies. And that’s the game in a nutshell: there’s no multiplayer, no game variants – just straight up Blackjack with a side order of cleavage.
Blackjack Waifu Tour does exactly what it says on the tin. It has some functional, if basic, Blackjack combined with a deck of cards showing off various Waifus. If you’re after a cheap game that combines anime boobies with Blackjack, then this is the game for you! If not, then there’s likely little here that will maintain your interest.
