Basically, Sprung is a G-rated version of those Japanese dating sims, which combine Choose Your Own Adventure sequences with nudity.
The basic plot: You play as either Brett or Becky, who of course have been in unspoken love since childhood.
They'll interact with scantily clad babes and hunks in this "simulation" of the dating scene.
Their adventures take place all over town: at the ski lodge, in a gondola, at a popular nightclub, and, of course, in a hot tub.
The "dating sim" has been a thing in the Japanese game marketplace for quite a long time, whether it be an RPG-style stat grinder a la Tokimeki Memorial or a straight-forward visual novel. (who later changed their name to Longtail Studios and developed the illustrious Best Friends Tonight, also for the DS, and Grey's Anatomy: The Video Game) and published by Ubisoft at the launch of the DS, is of the latter.
These types of games have never caught on in North America for any number of reasons, and Sprung does absolutely nothing to win any points in its favor.
Play as either Brett or Becky, two young and attractive adults, on vacation - each "looking for love".
Each character has a separate story with entirely different escapades.
Ubisoft has taken the plunge in this aspect and released a dating simulation, something that you usually don't find in the west let alone PAL territories.The storyline revolves around these two characters that converge on each other in some areas of the game but really the story is incredibly weak, despite the fact the game is a 'choose your own adventure' style game.Ultimately Brett and Becky want each other but won't admit it so it's up to you to make them realise it.This doesn’t make a lot of sense for a dating sim, in my opinion, but it’s still very fun to play. Like I said, there is some room to do what you want, and there are a few branches in the storyline for you to explore, but beyond that there isn’t much reason to replay this game.After a few playthroughs, most people will be done with it.
