Spicy Vortex ‘s “Silver in the Sky: Amulet” is a lewd turn-based sci-fi card battle/visual novel PC title (you play as a sexy space ranger babe called Arya), and the game starts of by having you investigating some information passed on by an informant.

Well, before you know it, you are attacked by a defence drone and then by various other baddies on the planet, that you decided to investigate.

Playing as the rather lovely Arya, the game is split into two sections, with the card game section bookending the visual novel section of the story. The card game has a few novel ideals:  Taking turns between yourself and your opponent, you have a choice of three cards, which can be influenced by one of four strategy items.

And this is what the inside of your spaceship looks like. Furthermore, say hello to the main character of “Silver in the Sky”, the sexy space babe Arya.

So, an attack strategy should be picking cards that are geared towards fighting, whilst health would pick cards that heal you. Whilst this works to some degree, you do find that a lot of the given cards aren’t appropriate to your strategy…And having three cards that do nothing is not particularly helpful.

This is what one of the card battle screens looks like.

Some cards also take up stamina, which does force you to change strategies in order to refill that up quickly, otherwise your chosen card may not work fully – or at all. Play continues until either one of you reaches zero health. If you win, the game continues, but if you lose, you are given the chance to replay the level – or at least, that’s the idea.

This guy is one hell of a dodgy alien (he is the second character that you will fight in the game).

Unfortunately, there was a bug where you could restart, but you can’t do anything – the developer is looking into this, however. Another problem with the card battle screen is the AI used for the enemies – it has a tendency to attack a few times and then just continually heal itself, nullifying any damage you do immediately.

So this means that the game drag on for ages as the fights ends in a sci-fi stalemate until one manages to cause sufficient continual damage (this is with no doubt one of the most annoying aspects of the game).

The graphics are pretty nice in “Silver in the Sky: Amulet”. However, I wish that the lewd content had been more than just static screens.

After each fight, your character has the general need to unwind with some “alone time” (aka “lewd time”). This could have been a section of the game, that could have really lifted the game up. Unfortunately, it doesn’t – all you get is a single, static screen with sound effects.

Silver in the Sky’s story is a rather interesting one. So it’s going to be pretty exciting to see what Spicy Vortex will do next with the game series.

The visual novel part is nice enough, if somewhat basic. You see, there is no backlog, skipping or auto-playing…And that’s something that would come in handy. So let’s just say that there are a lot of things to be wished for in “Silver in the Sky: Amulet”…And I find that to be rather sad, since “Silver in the Sky” could have been so much more than it is.

I’m not even exaggerating when I say that there are a lot of things that need to be fixed in “Silver in the Sky: Amulet”…For example, there are some pretty bad bugs to be found in the game. Furthermore, the screen resolution choice is limited, and the battle sections are a bit tedious.

However, as of now, that’s not the case. So sadly enough, “Silver in the Sky” falls flat on its flaws, because quite a few of the game’s flaws ruins the gameplay experience a whole lot I have to say. Even so, it might still be worth keeping an eye on “Silver in the Sky”, as there’s a chance that Spicy Vortex will try to fix the errors and cons that I’ve pointed out in this review.

At this very moment though, it would probably be a good idea to try the only version of the game for free before you buy the full version of “Silver in the Sky: Amulet”.

Pros:
+ Pretty nice graphics
+ Story should be interesting
+ An interesting starting point for a series

Cons:
– Battle sections are a bit tedious – needs more cards based on your attacking type
– Adult sections are only single, static screens
– At the moment, there are some pretty bad bugs in the game
– Music and sound effects just exist
– Screen resolution choice is limited

Gameplay: 3/5
Graphics: 3/5
Sound and music: 3/5
Controls: 4/5
Replay value: 3/5
Story: 3/5

tgg grade 3 out of 5

Verdict: 3/5
“Silver in the Sky: Amulet” is supposed to be the very start of the series, and sure, the first part does indeed have some rather interesting ideas. Unfortunately enough though, “Silver in the Sky” suffers from gameplay and technical issues which would well hamper any progress that you put into the game. However, once (hopefully) these issues has been fixed, it could very well become a fun game.
