Irisu Syndrome (Eng Patch!) -- Tetris by the country that brought you The Ring.

Irisu Syndrome.

Now with English patch.

Irisu Syndrome is a cute game by an amateur team of... one guy. It's a puzzle game in the same vein of Tetris, Collums, etc -- basically, geometric shapes are falling, and you have to click to launch squares to bounce them around. Hitting two shapes together causes them to vanish -- but only if one of them is glowing by being hit with a square before it touches the ground for the first time.

You have a health bar, which goes down as shapes touch the ground without being fixed, and later, as time passes.

You can press space to speed the game up, but I don't suggest this early on.

And it has a cute albino bunnygirl! How can you go wrong with that?

Latest patch is here: http://www.mediafire.com/?vqmy8ptx3c9i7mt (1.4, updated 11/10/10)
(Original thread is on /jp/, a sub-board on the Imageboard that Must Not Be Named. I'll update the link as newer versions come out.)


Do not Google. Do not TVTropes. Just play. Much like Eversion, this is something you just have to... experience.

Spoiler tags, please.

    ... Crap, I knew I forgot something.

    Well. Irisu Syndrome is a cute puzzle game. Basically shapes fall from the sky, and you have to launch squares of white or grey (right or left click) up to bounce them. Touching them with a white/grey square as they fall charges them up, charged up shapes destroy other similarly colored shapes. Two charged up shapes of the same color go boom for more points.

    It's quite fun and addicting as hell. Tetris effect in full effect.

    Thanks to a thread on SA I started this game and then I vaguely remembered seeing it on here. So I'm bumping this because seriously, play this game people. This is more than just a puzzle game. Eversion doesn't have shit on this game. I just wish I could break 40k to unlock Metsu mode. I don't want to cheat, but I heard Metsu is easier than the original and I only just finally got 20k.
    Spoiler:

    KiTA you should give the thread a better title, because most people will just pass this up with a title like that. I can't really think of anything clever, but I'd steer away from the bunny angle. I still think the bunny look is kind of dumb, but everything else makes up for it.

    Looks like theres more to this than falling blocks. But is this a good or bad thing.

    Edit: FUCK THIS GAME. I retract all negative comments I might have insinuated. please let me sleep tonight.

    I cheated and entered the Metsu code. 40k was just an impossible goal for me. I reached 30k earlier and died. That was it, I was never going to do better than that. However Metsu? 54k on my first try. It's also much more fun to me.

    Yeah, if you have Nvidia there's some steps you have to take so it can maybe work. First you need to go into your Nvidia control panel and set irisu.exe to antialias override. If that doesn't work then make sure your drivers are updated. If that also doesn't work you're screwed, sorry.

    Also Aumni and everybody else just so you know what you're aiming for when playing, here's a little checklist.

    20,000 points, 40,000 points, 50,000 points, Level 100, 100,000 points. I don't think that's a spoiler because it's very, very difficult to reach 40k and up so if you didn't know you had to you might think the game stops at 20k.



    I love the irisu_04 song in the BGM folder.

    I had this problem as well but forcing antialiasing and all that to on seemed work.

    Though I'm really not sure how to play this game... I lose at like 30 points. :(

    Here's a tutorial on how it works.
    Spoiler:

    So there you go. I'm sure I missed a few things, but consider that like an 80% tutorial. Also realize that a lot of times the game will just decide you lose. If you get a flood of blocks all different colors next to each other you're screwed. There's no way you can chain them all unless you're a robot.

    Awwwww crap. I somehow fluked my way to 100k, and now I have just level 100 to do. This won't be easy.

    randombattle just try to get 20k and then use the Metsu code. It's what you unlock at 40k and I honestly believe I could never get 40k in the original. Metsu is a lot better and it's still challenging, but you have more scoring opportunities.

    Oh motherfucker! I actually got 44k legitimately in normal mode just now, because I had 10 minutes before a show started. All that metsu practice made me really good apparently. Alright I don't feel bad about cheating now. I did go back and meet the legitimate requirements.

    Does it do... that, every time you break 40k in Normal mode? I got past 20k and did the code. I feel like I should experience it some time, just don't know if I need to move my save data to get it.

    Some little easter egg stuff if you haven't already figured it out:

    Clicking on the game title on the main menu switches between 3 BGMs for each mode [3 for metsu 3 for normal]

    Holding space while on the normal menu will result in a secret message in japanese scribbled in the background. Only could read bits and pieces, pretty much about the bunny and cat.

    EDIT: Oh! And the photo.png changes a lot. Keep looking at it.

    I can't wait to get the 100k event.

    Wait. There's more than just the 40 or 50k thing and new game? Getting 50k+ was pretty easy, and I saw the new game and "real" ending. How do you activate the other modes?

    Yeah, there is a minor event for 60k, and supposedly something for 100k...not there yet.

    I already deleted everything.

    But whatever. Wasn't so hard to get 40k in one puzzle segment, and there are 4 of them. Getting 100k can't be that much of a stretch.

    Honestly you wouldn't get much out of looking it up online.

    What there is to get in the first place ain't exactly world shattering, just interesting.

    The true ending kind of defeats any of the tension going on.

    Not sure why it triggered, as it was a pretty crappy run, but I finally got some kind of ending in Metsu. I was clicking so angrily over how the game had screwed me in that round that I wonder if I skipped over anything. I don't think I did though. I think clicking doesn't advance or skip anything in the endings. I just got worried when I realized the picture was taking too long to go away and after clicking like twice after it went black I went "Oh crap is this an ending?!" and stopped.
    Spoiler:

    I guess I still have the level 100 ending to get? Did I get the 100k ending? I don't even know.

    I didn't know an English patch came out recently. I guess I"ll go through the game again.

    Even when I played the game vanilla, it was pretty gripping though I only got the gist of the plot.

    It's going to be tough getting the level 100 ending again in normal. Metsu is so much easier.

    Good stuff on the thread KitA, I think it was just you who replied when I talked about the game in the old doujin games thread.
