Samuel Franklin (author) on November 08, 2013:

@bellala389: I love Alistair, definitely one of my favourites and I agree with everything you said about My Candy Love. I just tried to register another account on My Candy Love and it does seem like the CAPTCHA is no longer appearing. I would give it a day or so and if it still hasn't come back send them a quick email, must be bugged at the moment.

bellala389 on November 08, 2013:

I really really like Alistair, the graphics are great though you can't do a lot of stuff. Just started playing My Candy Love, I like it but the fact that I need to wait a day before I could get some action points, I mean, I would be okay to buy action points but the site doesn't offer my preferred payment option. Oh yeah, I really really want to play Star Project but I can't see a any CAPTCHA image during registration so I wasn't able to make an account. Help?

anonymous on September 01, 2013:

it was really good

anonymous on July 16, 2013:

Star Project is my personal favorite, it's like My Candy Love, but without the stupid APs. I swear my MLC favorite guy is Nathaniel, and on SP I love Touya. They look the same too.

anonymous on May 21, 2013:

@anonymous: You don't have to download Star Project-- That's another thing that makes it amazing.

anonymous on May 20, 2013:

annayjo on April 27, 2013:

Aja103654 on April 11, 2013:

They all look good! I am currently playing star project! The graphics are beautiful and it's free to play online. Since I don't have the console and the money to buy, or the Japanese skills to play, it's really a shame.

anonymous on March 20, 2013:

I don't like games when you'll have to download. so I prefer My Candy Love over all of those suggested games. And I also recommend the sim dates on deviantART, such as nummyz, Pacthesis and Cafe Rouge stuff.

anonymous on March 13, 2013:

candy is so fun

jhonemarker on February 28, 2013:

Camden1 on September 27, 2012:

These sound like fun games for teenage girls - I'd much rather my daughters keep their dating to online games than real life!

WriterJanis2 on August 23, 2012:

Nice that you have games for a variety of ages.

JoshK47 on August 22, 2012:
