Star Goddess is a shoot-'em-up where you shoot at lady's clothing to reveal what's underneath.

Gameplay
Before starting a new game, you can pick one of three difficulty settings. How they affect the game is not made clear, but they can be freely chosen before starting a stage.

This title is your standard "strip-'em-up", which is basically a shoot-'em-up where the goal is to strip a woman by accomplishing one or more tasks (which usually involve lots of shooting) In Star Goddess, you shoot at turrets (to remove lady's clothing). By collecting power ups, you can increase the number of projectiles that you fire (which will fan out increasing your range of effectiveness). There also power ups which speed up your ship, and shield it from incoming damage.

As you complete stages, you will unlock wallpapers (to use on your PC). These can be found on your PC's "Pictures" folder, under a folder called "Star Goddess". Interestingly, you can actually create your own wallpapers. From the "Gallery", you can paste (unlocked) characters as decals onto a background. Once you've arranged them how you please, you can save the image as a .png for personal use.

Story
Centuries ago, the gods of a realm called the Higher Planes lived in harmony. Scholars suspect that the dissappearance of one goddess' daughters was what disrupted their harmony. Her name is Mirajane, and she's evil (and sounds an awful lot like "mary jane").

The protagonist (who is you) encounters a distress call. Saori is one of Mirajane's daughters, and she needs you to rid her of her clothes (by shooting them off). She reveals that Mirajane is displeased with her daughters' sexuality, frowning upon their lack of sexual encounters with men. Her daughters escaped to our world and disguised themselves as normal humans, hoping to evade her wrath.

Well, Saori was caught redhanded, and you save her rear. She uses the power of hypnosis to reveal the location of two (out of eight) of her sisters. Mirajane has a fleet of starships, and she's destroying our world to punish them all. It's up to you to stop her, in one final showdown.

Visuals
The titlescreen is simple and reasonably appealing. From "Options" you can adjust sound settings, or pick a control scheme. Overall, I thought the user interface was good. The in-game assets look a bit varied, and seemed discordant. I suppose between the space theme, spaceships, and anime girls I didn't find a coherent style.

At one point, there's a scene where a demigoddess "hypnotizes" you. It was so, so badly animated that I felt that I needed to mention it.

- The Goods -
The ladies look really, really well drawn. Maybe not professional, but high-quality for sure. Expect basic female nudity.

Verdict
This is a fun, cheap lil' game packing a short story and a fistful of nude goddesses. If you want an easy-peezy strip-'em-up, I'd give this game a looksy.
