100% Orange Juice is…
an anime kawaii style card/board game.
You start the game by choosing to be one of the 4 characters you can choose from.
You play this game as a party of 4, I did not attempt any multiplayer so I can’t comment on that aspect at all. I was placed in a game with 3 CPU players, we rolled to see who went first. Each turn is started with a dice roll for movement, there are choices of paths so you can use some skill to navigate the board. The controls are very simple, limited to only needing the D-pad and the A and B buttons on the controller.
You start each turn with the option to use a card, move on the board or look at information about other players. If you choose CARD, it is as easy as just clicking on the card you want to use. If you select MOVE, you will click to roll the dice.
After the roll, the player chooses a path and moves that number of squares, depending on marking or flags on the square they land on different engagements are queued, battle results in a choice of either evade or defend.
If attacking you get to roll your dice for your attack strength. You can land on spots to roll for bonus stars, lost stars or get additional card draws. There are even awesomely confusing teleport spots which you can get a stuck in a loop of, lol.
Selecting INFO, zooms you out and you can see some information. I could not tell at all what this was attached to as it came up in multiple places around map.
From what I gathered it showed me Map I was on, current chapter, and what event spots were on this board (Random Warp). Should you happen to be defeated, don’t worry you can revive if you get the right roll.
Depending on the type of game mode you choose, your game will last for varying number of rounds:
So what does OKG say?
I was SUPER stoked to start this review adventure out with a game I was ACTUALLY able to control, I felt like I totally scored. So for me, this is a simple game I can see myself going back to play as break between tasks to change gears. It is cute, the audio is funny and I find myself repeating (BATTLE!).
But it gets repetitive fast, so even excited as I was that I could control everything, at least I thought….I was still not really into it by the near end of the match.
There was also a ton of other info on cards, strategy around board movement and just general game knowledge that I was not really drawn to look at more as a game was not keeping my focus. You can find tons at WIKI here.
Last words, this game is for sure OKG approved for control and general gameplay, these things will not be the reason you love or hate this game for sure. This was not a love for me, but I didn’t toss a controller so it wasn’t bad either 🙂
I can see myself playing this ever once in awhile, but never more than once each time.
