The main focus of my review will be on plot, character development, and some on the actual technical stuff.

It can take as little as a few hours or as long as a couple of days - be patient!

I will read up to 2 chapters - more if I enjoy your story

So…I’ll give you my opinion as a reader and as a creator

  1. Don’t add a story if the first chapter is ONLY CC, I will NOT keep reading it!
  2. Don’t add your story if you aren’t prepared for a brutally honest opinion
  3. Fill in the form - I will only read stories with the proper format
Things I hate In stories...
  1. Annoying pushing a love Interest on you

  4. Locking important things behind gem options

☆ Grid Queen Review ☆

Story by @Daisy_stories

Read up to: Chapter 2

First Impressions

The cover art is really nice and eye-catching. However, the description for the story is not great at all. It’s not really that interesting nor does it pull in a potential reader. I probably wouldn’t have read the story if I found this simply by browsing since the description is so lackluster. You need something to reel in potential readers

About the story:

Things I liked
  1. I like that you are given plenty of opportunity to customize the appearance of things in case you messed up
  2. I think the end credits and dialogue options are clever, but It would break the immersion for binge readers (depends on your preference I suppose)
  3. The characters are engaging, but some of the relationship between some of the characters are hard to keep up with (might just be my slow brain tbh).
  4. The mini-games are engaging and pretty cool
  5. I find it wonderful that you explain some terms to people, such as myself, who do not understand the car racing sport.
Things I disliked
  1. (Spoiler) the portion about the royal family (something like that…) feels so incredibly out of place and bizarre when compared to the story’s main focus (racing) However, I will say that the mystery element is engaging nonetheless, but it didn’t make much sense to why it was there
  2. The story has a strange fluency and it didn’t feel like things flowed naturally from one scene to the next.
Would I recommend this story to others?

Sure, I would recommend this story to other people if they were interested in a racing story with some romance and tackling of some deeper issues such as gender equality.


-Sometimes the transitions, such as the pinwheel doesn’t work how it should and it looks very weird. I’m not really sure how you would fix this, since I personally use fading out transitions
-There are times where the character will be talking when they aren’t. This happens when you use a loop animation, so remember to add an idle after a loop talking animation.
-Could just be a me issue, but that dad wasn’t there in the chapter 2 flashback
-Spot bubble placements could use some work, they dont always look great
-No music in chapter 2, not sure if this was intentional or not


Overall thoughts on the story

So far I do enjoy the story. While the plot may be a bit scattered, the characters are interesting and the mystery keeps me wanting to read some more. Will I read more? Probably! Even with the minor errors, it is a pretty good story so far.

Extra Note

Some of chapter 2 feels rushed and sloppy, and there is a pretty big quality difference from chapter 1 and chapter 2, it’s very clear you spent more time on chapter 1.


Title / Author: MC: The Bar on 23rd/ Dr.Smile
Genre / Style: Action/ INK
When Blade Reynolds encountered a walking target at a bar, he should’ve been dead for the second time. Third, counting when he stupidly fell for Cathy.

Story by @avajosefine

Read up to: Chapter 2

First Impressions

The cover art is really eye catching, and the description easily reels in a potential reader by leaving them wanting to know more about what’s to come of Vera’s future. Overall, great quality!

About the story:

Things I liked
  1. The camera zooms, spotting and all of that are amazingly done! I really admire the amount of effort you put into the advanced directing
  2. The overlays are lovely! They’re super cute and also helpful for letting you know when you gained or lost a character point. Plus the little cute soud effect is great too
  3. The main character is very likeable
  4. The interactions between characters feel engaging and I like that most of the choices feel like they have weight and impact your relationship with others.
  5. The plot flows very naturally! I find that I don’t get confused at all and everything is easy to follow along with.
Things I disliked
  1. The chapters are pretty short I wish they would be longer.
  2. While I do love the MC, a lot of other characters are Mary sues and don’t seem as interesting. I would love to see it shaken up a bit and have some realism or at least not so perfect characters introduced (for example: a character had bad grades and is only attending because they pay off the principal or what not)
  3. The interactions between the mom and the MC feel kind of plain
Would I recommend this story to others?

Hell yeah! It’s a great story for anyone looking for a simple high school drama that was made with care to be it’s most polished self.

  1. Sometimes the speechbubbles are in weird positions


Overall thoughts on the story

It’s a fantastic story in my eyes and it’s clear that a lot of work went into making it, I’m honestly surprised it doesn’t have more reads. I know for a FACT, I will be reading more of the story! The plot is decently engaging, flows naturally, the characters are likable, and it feels like the choices actually have some impact! I look forward to future chapters.


Thanks so much for this! :heart:
