One of the most obscure fighting games ever made, Queen of Heart '98 is in anime style and features female fighters only. Based on popular Japanese anime series To Heart, Queen of Heart '98 is not a "Hentai" (i.e. mature) game, however, as the fighters are presented in the "SD" style (short, stumpy head), so you can hardly expect them to have any --ahem-- sexual appeal ;)

The game is standard fighting fare: select a character, then it's off to the arena. Two-player is possible, but the controls are much more cumbersome than in single-player mode. Animations are not as good as other games (e.g. Street Fighter) in the genre, but the fun in Queen of Hearts lies in executing unusual attacks and watching the opponents' reactions. Overall, a great game that action fans will find enjoyable, and whose humor makes it a nice change from the typical gore. Your graphics card may not be compatible with the game, though.

Some comments from community member Davide Mascolo: "playable only by keyboard, with a layout of controls not problematic for a single player, but terrible when a friend joins (your hands will become one!). And, worse, the game seems not to sustain all the key presses, so you can often hear an error bleep. I and a friend of mine played many and many times despite these problems, but they're annoying and it's a shame they partially cripple the fun of a Versus fight. I think the game still deserves a Top Dog, but maybe only for the single player mode.

Note: To select the hidden characters, just move the select box left of Akari and Multi, or right of Aoi and Ayaka, and there they are!"

The other games in the series are listed on this page though not all of them might have been translated.
