WISH – Paradise High is a lewd match-three game about one-night stands with various attractive Asian ladies.

Gameplay
Match pairs of three or more to unlock nudes and dialogue! WISH – Paradise High is a run-of-the-mill match-three game with light visual novel elements. Between levels are a few lines of dialogue, with a single player choice — if you choose wrong, you’ll piss off your date and suffer a three-turn penalty. You’re only allowed a certain number of “matches”, and as the game becomes more difficult you’re better off retrying if you pick the wrong option. Each level has a target score (and later levels have designated, mandatory “matches”) which must be met to proceed to the next stage. . . or you can just hit the “Skip” button.

Story
Uh. . . I guess you’re a super chad, ‘cus women just seem flock for your pee-pee; there’s Roha the YouTuber; Nanami the cosplayer; Lumi the yoga instructor; Sachiko the business woman; and Hina the dommy teacher. Thanks to your ability to “move their minds while playing puzzle games”, getting into their pants will be a snap!

Visuals
The titlescreen looks great! It features a very attractive lady and pretty visual effects. From “Option” you may adjust audio, display and language preferences. You may also toggle “Adult Mode” from this screen. Unlocked CGs and sex-scenes can be reviewed from “Extra”. Unfortunately, the user-interface can’t be hidden when viewing sexual content. Not all of the CGs can be borderless-fullscreened. Visually, the game is very attractive, though copy-pasted assets are clear as day. The English is an absolute joke — actually, if you’re looking for a laugh you’re in for a treat!

- The Goods -
There are five interactive sex-scenes, and five animated portraits (with two variants for undress, each used in-game based on your matching performance). The artwork is super hot, but the animations are so-so. I loved the characters and their expressions, but it’s clear Momentum Games really tried to stretch their budget. There’s only animation for each character, and it’s copy/pasted in-and-out of sex-scenes (just with clothes tacked-on and the wiener cropped-out). The “interactivity” consists of holding the mouse button down until the “Finish” button shows up. Overall, the art is great, but sexual content is lacking.

Verdict
Wait for a sale. WISH – Paradise High is an okay match-three game with okay artwork. That’s all it is — okay. It’s a shame because had their been stronger CGs and dialogue (and maybe some proper English), this might have been a pretty okay game. The mechanics introduced in this game aren’t much different than the competition. While they increase the variety in gameplay, they also increase the likelihood of being “RNG-screwed” (which is compounded whenever you choose the “wrong choice” during visual novel segments). WISH – Paradise High could be better, but it’s worth grabbing on a sale.
