Kamidori Alchemy Meister (神採りアルケミーマイスター?, literally "God Collecting Alchemy Meister") is a Japanese eroge by Eushully. The game is a visual novel and turn-based SRPG.[1]

Story[edit]

The story revolves around a young man named Wilfred Dion, an apprentice who graduated and became an alchemist of Yuidora, also known as Workshop City. After becoming an alchemist, Wilfred begins encountering many members of various different races including fox-demons, angels, and dragons, befriending them on his path to become the greatest alchemist in Yuidora.

Gameplay[edit]

Kamidori is a turn based SRPG comparable to other popular titles like Fire Emblem in which playable units are set up on a map grid where they take turns fighting against computerized opponents. Each map has a unique set of objectives that the player must reach in order to clear them, ranging from the basic "Defeating all opponents" to escorting missions. Certain aspects of the map can only be traversed by particular units that have the proper skills to do so and there are a wide variety of enemy strengths and weaknesses, giving a depth of strategy on which units you choose to take into battle and how you use them.
