No there is a reagonal map and you spend action points to make decisions about upgrades, troops, and fight battles. It's quite detailed but typical of Japanese PC games there is no real way to figure out good strategies and there are tons of "gotcha" decisionpoints where you can miss content. You basically have to read a guide to even get started.

It's fun a fuck, dude. You conquer Japan while raping everything that moves.

done this like 5 times, why is this game so overhyped
It takes some time to get used to it. I had to spend some time doing random shit to fully understand the game's mechanics. After that the first run is really easy, then you can do shit like alternative routes and completing objectives to unlock some stories.
I wonder if /v/ has realized Kichikuou Rance translation was released back in September
Actually, I barely fapped to it. A lot of scenes were kind of lackluster. And, as a lot of people are going to tell you, you eventually start skipping over the porn to get back to the game.
>Play game expecting porn
>End up skipping through all the hentai scenes since it's just Rance going "MUH HYPER WEAPON!" and it's vanilla shit
>End up playing for days just to beat the game
Fun game, shit porn and Rance is a one dimensional character, but it's hard to hate him.
Looks good, caters to my fetishes, and sounds like a deep and interesting game, but when I downloaded the only english translated one and tried to play I didn't understand what the fuck was going on.
