Are you woken up by the sound of an alarm clock, by your mom or wife, or do you have a butler who wakes you up? Everyone has their own way of waking up in the morning, but why don't you give this app a try?
With Tantei Opera Milky Holmes Alarm (探偵オペラ ミルキィホームズアラーム), you can have characters of this popular anime, Sheryl, Nero, Elly, and Cordelia help wake you up!
First, choose a character to wakes you up. In this review, I'll use my favorite character, Sheryl (pink hair).
Next, choose a costume for your desired character.
Costumes such as detective coat, plain clothes, and college uniform, will increase according to the usage of this app. There are over 40 options of illustrations and alarm voices. Use the app more to unlock special costumes and voices.
After you choose your character, set up the alarm .
Besides the alarm time, detailed configurations such as vibration, volume, and snooze options are also available. However, it is a bit disappointing that characters with low voice (especially Elly) can hardly be heard, even if the volume is turned up. The app can be linked to Twitter, so if you wake up in time the character will tweet for you.
Moreover, Arséne and other characters from the Gentlemen Thieves faction in the anime appears in mini-games designed to prevent you from falling back to sleep.
Two mini-games are available; one is played by tapping the screen continuously to knock out enemies, and the other involves trying to hit the snooze button moving rapidly across the screen. These games are extremely simple, but pretty difficult when you just woke up. Just make sure you don't fall asleep after beating those mini-games!
