Rance: The Quest for Hikari (in Japan Rance - Hikari o Motomete; ランス-光をもとめて-) is an adult visual novel role-playing video game developed and published by Alicesoft. It was released first in July 15, 1989 on the PC-9800. It's the first game in the adult RPG/VN series Rance which is popular in Japan and is getting more popularity in the American VN community.

Bad Qualities

  1. The game is very short for an RPG and can be beaten in 1 or 2 hours.
  2. Too easy as many enemies can be defeated very fast and require little skill and small leveling which level 20 or higher will make the enemies pointless.
  3. The enemy designs are very poor and look like they're created in MS paint. This is fixed in later installments.
  4. The FM Towns version has a poor conversion of the music of this game since the sound chip for floppy discs for the FM Towns is lower quality than most other Japanese computers.
  5. The Khein Mansion is a very tedious dungeon which requires you to search and look through many stuff and the enemies can either take your EXP or easily kill you.
  6. There is no yes/no warning to ensure what item you get at the shop so you need to be careful of the item you select as it can waste your gold.
  7. The Hanny flash's RNG is very annoying as it can easily kill you or do little damage and is luck-based. Thankfully this was also fixed in later installments.

Good Qualities

  1. The music is very well composed and fun to listen to (except the FM Towns version) especially Sill's theme.
  2. A lot of hilarious humor such as Rance sneezing to unlock the Bandit's Cave and an option to pay for looking at the item shop.
  3. The battle music is very epic to listen to and fits its RPG style.
  4. It parodies a lot of RPG tropes and also pokes fun at Japanese computers and operating systems such as MS-DOS.
  5. The game can be fun to play with its simple gameplay and stuff to explore.
  6. The remake is actually good.

Kinda reminds me of how the first Neptunia game was poor and the later were better.

I think we should try to find some good hentai games for Awesome games. I think the game Brave Souls is supposed to be good. I'll have to play it and give it a shot.

I found at least one hentai game, and even a franchise, that is suitable for Awesome Games. An example is Template:Awesome, additionally, I created that page.
