From Nigoro, the same people who made ''VideoGame/LaMulana'', comes a flash game called ''[[http://nigoro.jp/ja/games/rose/ Rose & Camellia]]''.

With Shunsuke, the eldest son of the Tsubakikoji family dead, his wife Reiko holds claim to being the head of the family and house. However, Shunsuke's sisters and mother object to this as Reiko was born a commoner. So with the family turning against her, what's a forlorn widow to do? Slap these bitches, of course! Join Reiko as she slaps all the women in the family until they accept her as the head of the household.

The basic mechanics are that you move the mouse pointer quickly over the face to the left to slap your opponent, and you move the mouse pointer quickly across the bottom of the window to the right to dodge. Think a {{cat fight}}ing ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' set in the Regency period with some Japanese anachronisms thrown in.

There's also a sequel released where Saori, the youngest daughter tries to claim the house from Reiko using the same methods as Reiko in the first game. It's available [[http://nigoro.jp/en/games/rose2/ here]], in English, now, and without the need to play through the original.

Nigoro has also made a VideoGame/LaMulana version where Mulbruk goes around fighting various other female characters for the title of main heroine. It can be played [[http://nigoro.jp/en/games/rose_l/ here.]]
!!This is the elegant art of feminine conflict:
* [[AttackItsWeakPoint Attack Her Weak Point]]
* TheBattleDidntCount: [[spoiler:The final boss in the sequel.]]
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Zigzagged. Averted to high hell with the (attractive) sisters, twin maids, and the already ugly maid, [[spoiler: Giant demonic matriarch, and muscular, overly masculine cousin]], but played straight with the head of the family, and [[spoiler: Reiko herself]] in the sequel.
* BigFancyHouse: The setting for the main games.
* CatFight: Ooooh yeah.
* CryCute: Hanae and [[spoiler: Matriarch Reiko]] when you've harmed them enough.
* [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Did You Just Bitch Slap Cthulhu?]]
* DifficultyByRegion, as the English version has a difficulty slider that can make the game easier.
* DualBoss: Lefti and Righti Mito, though they're still treated as one target.
* ExtremityExtremist: Everyone fights by slapping with only one arm except for the final boss of the first game who punches with only one arm.
* FlowerMotifs: Camellias for the '''Tsubaki'''kojis and roses for Reiko.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Other than the ugly NinjaMaid, and Hanae's glowing eyes, it ''sorta'' makes sense. Then the final boss appears...
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: The mother Hanae and the cousin Haruhi
* IAmNotLeftHanded: [[spoiler:Reiko catches what would have been the decisive blow against her in the sequel, and sends Saori flying with a single slap, no matter how well you performed.]]
* ImportantHaircut: Saori gets one at the beginning of the second game.
* LetsPlay: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5ForcJDk7s One]] by LetsPlay/{{Deceased Crab}}.
-->"''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' called, they want [[XCalledTheyWantTheirYBack their unexpected final boss]] back."\\
"Looks to me a Creator/JaneAusten version of ''VideoGame/PunchOut''."
* LifeMeter
* MovesetClone: Lefti Mito and Righti Mito play similarly to Etsuko.
* NinjaMaid: Etsuko Mita.
* NintendoHard
* OneWingedAngel: The final boss of the first game.
* {{Retraux}}: As the [[{{Cutscene}} cutscenes]] are done with sepia
** They also somehow resemble the cutscenes of the NES ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' trilogy.
* RogueProtagonist: Or rather, Rogue ''Antagonist.'' The sequel follows Saori instead of Reiko. [[spoiler: Reiko is the final boss, instead, and while no means evil, she is the story's antagonist.]]
* ShowsDamage: As you slap your opponent senseless, she'll start [[BloodFromTheMouth bleeding from the mouth]] or develop a bruise on her cheek.
* SwordLines: Except with slapping and dodging.
* ThresholdGuardian: Etsuko Mito challenges Reiko, not because she has a particular beef with her, but because she's testing her resolve and strength to make changes in the house hold.
** LoneWolfBoss: As she's a member of the working class, Etsuko is a mere neutral third party and has no real opinion over the squabbles of the Tsubakikoji household.
* ATwinkleInTheSky
* WidgetSeries: Oh, where to begin...
** How about the [[NinjaMaid maid that can crawl and stand on the ceiling?]]
*** How about the [[spoiler: demonic matriarch that's lived for centuries that you defeat through slapping?]]
