Science Girls is a cute but short game about a girls science club whose school gets attacked by plant-like aliens. The story is at times funny, imformative and also a little slice of life. Well, as slice of life as one can expect when there are aliens involved. I would have liked a bit more of a solid storyline regarding all the science involved but on the stuff it does touch on, I can't complain. It plays like your typical turn based RPG so pick your attacks and level them wisely. Speaking of leveling, it has a really cool system in that it allows you to pick any aspect you want to upgrade. It could be a move or your stats. It also has good music, a random assortment of food items, and replay value.

I definitely reccomend this game.

I actually don't understand why this game is so highly rated.
It is an RPG that tried to do things in a Visual Novel style.
What I have garnerd from my limited time playing it is this:
The VN portion of the game is pointless and has no agency within the game. It's their because they wanted to do an RPG/VN. It serves no purpose.
The RPG protion of the game is sloppy. You have no way to gain consumables outside of combat. You have no place or way to rest/heal. The combat is slow, tedious and poorly designed. The basic attacks are worthless, so you end up in a ring of defending and healing just trying to get your party ready for the next fight. The character sprites could have used some variation other than hair.
Even on the hardest mode, their is no challenge. It just requires you to spend more time in the defend/heal/use special loop.
Moving the character on the map works best with mouse. Using the kyeboard is clunky.
Going through combat is best with the keyboard as using the mouse get tiresome quickly and you can accidently misclick quite easily.
Controller support might as well be yanked. Moving is sluggish, accessing menu's is unintuitive, and using special attacks sometime breaks it so that you can't do anything until you use the mouse/keyboard.
And finally the biggest question for a game: was it fun? The anser is no. It was slow, had no real story to speak of, troped characters and tedious combat that monopolizes the majority of the game.
I loved other games by the publisher, specifically LLTQ. So this game came as quite a let down.

A simple, cute RPG about girls saving the world from aliens using SCIENCE. There really isn't much more to say. If you are expecting a deep, complex game with well developed characters or innovative gameplay, you will be disappointed. But for what it is, I very much enjoyed this game.

The school has been invaded by alien monsters, and it is up to six heroines to save the day. With the power of science, of course!

Science Girls is a classic turn-based RPG, where you explore the map, fight the enemies and gradually uncover what is going on. It also features extensive dialogues that often let you pick protagonist’s response. And not only the girls have distinct personalities, each of them specializes in a particular scientific field, which add to their uniqueness not only in battles, but during the conversations as well.

In short, if you enjoy turn-based RPGs, Science Girls are most definitely worth getting.

Science Girls is an RPG where six girls that study different scientific fields come together to stop an alien invasion.

This game is not good. Really, the only notable things about this game is that the protagonists are female scientists. It's nice to see media that supports women in science and technology. That's it, though. The protagonists are shallow, and offer very little personality beyond their chosen field. They look very similar (uniforms don't help), which makes it tough to remember which one is which, and after a while, I no longer cared. Sadly, the player-controlled character is just as interchangeable as the others, with the only difference being that she wears a dumb mask. Couldn't I have at least chosen which of the six to control? Also, most of the science the girls use is either basic high school knowledge or completely fictional, and I think the dialogue is actually a bit disrespectful to the scientific fields represented (though, as a CS graduate, I have spent time in a computer lab playing Nethack before). As for the story, I found it uninteresting and a bit too padded out with all the battling.

As for the gameplay itself, it's boring and horribly unbalanced. Your characters' basic attacks are worthless. I found I just kept relying on multi-target skills, with the occasional heal. It's awkward that there's no place that I could find to just recover HP/SP... I kept having to do it in battle by putting one enemy to sleep and defending/healing repeatedly. The battle and level up system are really pretty inelegant. This game would've benefited by keeping things simpler (like the Mario RPGs). Also, I hate it with a passion when skills in RPGs become harder to use as you level up. The saving grace is that all six characters are usable in battle and they all receive XP... at least that's one pitfall avoided.

The art is not very good. The pixel work is okay. The illustrations do a poor job of making the girls distinct. The alien homeworld looks particularly bad. As for the sound, well, apparently there's supposed to be some sound? There are options for sound, but I didn't hear any. I turned the volume way up and made sure my speakers were working, but no sound or music. The controls try to work for keyboard, mouse, and controller, but the keyboard controls were crap, and for the mouse, the buttons were a bit small and all over the screen, making it tough to use the mouse comfortably. I also found a number of small graphical bugs as I played through... this game really needed a bit more polish.

I was really hoping to like this game, especially from the publisher that brought us Long Live the Queen (which was great) and Magical Diary (which was not very good, but I still enjoyed it), but for me, this game was pretty much a miss on every level. I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone. If you know a small girl who is aspiring to study a science/technology field, have them play a good game instead. I wouldn't want her to think that science is as boring as this game is.
