Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker

I was given the opportunity to play Kitty Power’s Matchmaker, although it’s not the type of game I would normally go for, I was eager to see what it had in store for me.

Kitty Power’s Matchmaker focuses on the player being hired to serve as her newest matchmaker at the latest branch of her dating service that she has opened. The play is tasked with selecting and scheduling dates for clients based on their clients’ personal tastes with that of their prospective dates. Eye colour, occupating, interests and much more come into play and it means that paying attention to every little detail is a must when playing, otherwise, you may select an incorrect answer and begin ruining the date.

Each date has a limit of three failures, IE. picking an incorrect choice, or failing at lying to the date, before the client’s date will cancel the date and leave. So although you may think that dish on the dessert table isn’t important, you better think again, because if you get the wrong one that could be the final nail in the coffin for this date! Well, to go into that a bit more, dates are held at one of, several restaurants throughout the town that each incorporate their own theme and have a different difficulty. The dates are split up into sections, each of which become accessible based on how well the date at hand is turning out, sometimes things will start off great and other times you may find your client being left at the table abruptly due to you not paying attention to both of the dates tastes and interests and selecting incorrect answers. If things are going well during the date you must successfully guide your client through minigames and typical date questions on topics such as hobbies, personality, and employment. If the client finds that their date has expressed a preference or a feature that they do not like, the players are given the ability to either tell the truth or lie about their opinion. If they choose to lie, the player must spin a wheel that will decide if the lie is detected or not.

The main thing I disliked was how repetitive it got, after a few dates I already felt like each following one wasn’t that different and more or less felt like I was just going through the same if not similar dialogue over and over, although the length, results of discussions and the overall outcome changed frequently due to how much attention to detail you paid, or therefore lack of. It’s quite a little thing to highlight, but I think it was more apparent to me due to this being a genre of game I’ve never really looked into before, so I didn’t feel quite as engrossed as I would have liked to. Another thing that I found to break the immersion with the game was an issue I ran into during one of the dates. I was trying to set my client up with a woman who was bald, during the date she went to the toilet and upon returning I was asked to pick what had changed with her appearance. I couldn’t see anything obvious so I assumed she somehow managed to change her clothes, unrealistic yes but the other options seemed irrelevant as she couldn’t have died her hair or the likes… but after I made my answer I was told the correct choice was hair colour… To be fair, now I think about it again her eyebrows may have changed colour, but I digress.

I love the graphics of this game, they are quite neat and eye catching but they aren’t enough to make up for its lack of unique audio, characters just churn out the same snippets of noise over and over and there wasn’t really anything rememberable about the general audio that plays in the background either. Although the graphics caught my attention, that was all that really got me looking. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it’s a bad game at all, its just that personally, Kitty Powers Matchmaker isn’t a game for me but I can recommend it for those who enjoy playing dating sims or games that fit into similar genres. It’s light-hearted, humorous and it’s very easy to pick up and enjoy. If you have played Kitty Powers Matchmaker on mobile devices and other platforms prior to its console release, then you’ll be right at home with it and be in for a treat.
