The year is 2004, and you play the role of an exchange student who arrives at the Kamiyoshi School in Shinjuku District in Tokyo. In fact, although you came there to study, you are more interested in another activity - treasure hunting! That is precisely what you do when you have time - descend into ancient ruins and unravel their mysteries. But it seems you came to the right place. The place on which the school building stands is surrounded by legends, and soon you find a secret passage that leads to ruins... but of course, you'll need the co-operation of your schoolmates to have success!

Kowloon Y?ma Gakuen Ki (which can be translated as Chronicles of Kowloon Demon School) is a hybrid game that has elements of various genres - most notably RPG, Japanese and Western-style adventure. The entire game is viewed from first-person perspective. Moving through 3D dungeons, you can examine and manipulate items, which is required to solve puzzles, in a Western adventure fashion. The Japanese-style adventure element is notable in conversations with the characters, which follow the pattern of a dating simulation - your responses influence your relationship with characters. In dungeons there are also enemies to fight. The battles are strategic, resembling those of Fallout. You move your party through the room in a turn-based fashion; each move costs you AP. Once the enemy is within range, you can perform a variety of attacks and special techniques. [source:mobygames]
