Hi everyone! Nick here, bringing you more exciting and fun game reviews and previews from the Japanese gaming industry. Today, I'd like to tell you a bit about a game called ガールフレンド（おんぷ）or roughly translated to Girlfriend Note, developed and published by CyberAgent Inc., which is currently a top downloaded game on the Japan Apple iTunes App Store! This is an adorable idol rhythm game that I think a lot of you will really enjoy. Let's check it out!
As you enjoy this title, you will get to see various aspects of the game and enjoy them just as I did. One of them being the dating simulator that is often seen in idol games. Basically, you need to charm and befriend the various girlfriends to get them to play on stage for you. There are a large spectrum of different characters to choose from and play with, which makes this game amusing!
The main purpose of the game, is to do rhythm music battles which can be both fun and challenging. Basically, you will see notes at the bottom of the screen which you will click as the heart fills into the hole, sort of like DDR or some other rhythm-type games you may have played before. It's not all that difficult, but does take some adjustment if you're new to this style of game.
Above, I've included a video of gameplay to give you a little bit more visual on how the title works without giving too much away. So what do you guys think? Would this be a title you'd enjoy trying from Japan? Let me know in the comment section because your opinions usually help decide what other games I review!
