Rozalin and the Palace of Flowers is a visual novel about a girl's quest to find a cure for a deadly curse.

Gameplay
A basic visual novel with only two player choices; smash through text boxes until you reach an ending.

Story
Rozalin has two weeks to live, or find a cure to her "Rose Curse". She and her friends Andrea and Anali are both interested in her companionship, but the three schoolgirls are more than what meets the eye. Adding the mystery, a boy in Rozalin's class has a message to deliver to her, but only after two weeks have passed. The four students are all connected in a plot involving love and magic.

To read the full length "Story", check this review out on Wombat Trap (dot-com).

Visuals
The titlescreen is promising. From "Settings", you may adjust a variety of audio, dialogue and display preferences. While there is a "Gallery", it appears to be dysfunctional; after completing the game and witnessing two CGs, the Gallery remained empty.

The fourth text box in the game has a typo. How, how was this not caught during testing? Actually, there are quite a bit of typos in the dialogue. The letter "i" is regularly uncapitalized when it should be. The character Bastian is referred to as both a "he" and a "she". The writing overall felt unnatural, and I had a hard time understanding what everyone was saying. There are so many typos, I think it's unacceptable; someone should have proofread the game.

- The Goods-
I didn't spot any sexual content in this game. There was kissing; but that's hardly saucy.

Verdict
Given the flaws to this game, I recommend waiting for an update or two. The writing was difficult to comprehend, and I wasn't fond of the story's pacing. I think this is passionate, wholesome, story between three lady-lovers. However, this visual novel falls short of my expectations, but I think it's worth a read if (A) you can read past poor English and (B) you aren't looking for sexual content (as the Store Tags might lead you to believe).

Hi, I really appreciate your review from my game. I’m terrible sorry about the difficulties you encountered with some pieces of the reading since is not my native language, but please be sure that your comments are being taken in account and I’m currently working on a fix.
It may take a while since I’m alone in this project and is difficult to have everything done right at the first release (patch), but, please be sure that I take seriously my game and I’ll find a way to make it more enjoyable for everyone. Thank you again for your comments.
