How Island Days Blends A Dating Sim With A Tower Defense Game
Makoto Ito from School Days returns and he is stuck on a deserted island in Island Days. The game has two goals, to find a way off the island and start a relationship with one of the girls stuck with you. Players decide if Makoto should spend time with one of the heroines to raise their affection for Makoto or forage for food and weapons.
The weapons and food you pick up are used for the battle part, which plays like a tower defense game where you protect your rations. You place heroines on the map and can equip them with weapons like an ax, knife, spear, bow and other items you found. The food you save carries over to the next battle, but if your food supply is low you’ll have a disadvantage in the next battle. Building relationships has its perks since the affection level heroines have for Makoto powers heroines up. Also, the heroines you choose for the battle part are more likely to show up the next day.
Speaking of the heroines, they are returning characters from School Days. Island Days is slated for release on May 1 in Japan.
