Now, here's something we don't see often, a fighting AVG H-GAME.
Crazy Knuckle is in many ways unique. It's about a martial artist called Zado who wants to the be the world's most powerful martial artist. To do that, he is collecting little fragments that will lead to the secret of the ultimate martial arts skill. In order to learn the skill, he has to defeat the people who holds these individual fragment. However, Zado's most-trusted henchmen took all the fragments and learn the ultimate skill himself and defeats Zado. To regain his dignity, Zado has to defeat his henchman in the battle ring.
The game itself has pretty nice graphics with cute girls (men are well-drawn too). However, what makes this game distinct from other H-games is the battle engine.
ZyX uses the engine similar to Final Fantasy 4, 5, 6, 7: real-time battle system. There is a time bar (AP) that fills up automatically and when u get enough AP you can do certain attacks (punch or kick) or you can choose to use the AP and convert them into FP (fury point) which is required to do the "limit breaks" if you want to call it that way. Just keep in mind that while your AP fills up the opponent's AP fills up too. Therefore you have to watch out for both your opponent's status as well as your own and unleash special attacks the milli-second you are capable to. Also, the animations of the special skills are pretty nice.
I personally think this is a very nice and unique system that you don't see at all in other H-games. However, you might find the engine hard to grasp at the very beginning of the game (it took me a while to understand the commands).
Overall, this H-game is worth playing. However, I would have to say that the plot is too short. Nevertheless, I recommend this game to anyone who wants something new in Hgames. It has really nice graphics and unique battle engine.
