Aside from the recently released Seven Sirens, Nutaku has also launched another free-to-play title called Limerick Heroines. This too hybridizes visual novels and another game type, although this game instead has players working their way through fantastic crossword puzzles.

In Limerick Heroines, you’ve just graduated as a bard and have entered into a fantasy world filled with sexy warriors and deadly enemies. Battles are carried out by playing through Scrabble-style crossword puzzles, although they go a little beyond the vanilla gameplay. The board starts with a couple of words to get you started which makes things slightly more challenging in a fashion. Subsequent levels may introduce new mechanics like restricting your play to particular areas of the board.

I fully expect that someone will notice a better word I could have made and give me hell for it. Go ahead, do your worst! (In my defense, I was focused on staying within the green area of this level.)

Outside of the core gameplay, you’ll have to upgrade your partners as you advance through the game world. Of course, this is a Nutaku game—that means that there are plenty of sexy scenes for players to unlock if they’re so inclined. This is also a free-to-play game with everything that implies—expect to see premium currencies and ways to boost up your game if you feel like kicking Nutaku a couple of bucks.

I continue to be surprised at the sorts of games that can be turned into pretty interesting adult games. If you think you’re good enough with words to win the day, you can play Limerick Heroines for free on Nutaku right now [NSFW]. You can also grab it for Android if you want to take it on the go.
