The game's music and style will remind you of DOS-based visual novel, especially Nocturnal Illusion.

The story is about Reiko who married Shunshuke, the eldest son from House of Camellia. Unfortunately, Shunshuke died on the next day. Due to this, Reiko was bullied from the other member of the House of Camellia. She got angry. She took the rose Shunshuke gave her and declared war against the House of Camellia. Since she is the bride of the eldest son, she intended to take control of the House of Camelia. The whole game is her battle.

Battle begin!
Battle begin!

But wait… did I mention this is a slapping battle?

Yes, slapping.

This whole game is kinda hard to swallow.

The control is easy. Swing the mouse in the direction of your opponent's face to attack, swing mouse in the direction of your neck to dodge.

Taking a slap like a lady.

The most challenging part of this game is not to take too many hits, since you don't recover from each fight, and there's a total of 5 opponents.

Winning a match is accompanied by a dramatic echo of the last slap.

I won't spoil much more than this. It's a short game, and the rest of the House of Camelia member need to be seen by your own eyes to be believed.
