I Rely on Kisses to Clear Survival Games


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Cheng Zhi Chu was pulled into an infinite stream of horror games. If he didn’t clear them, he would die.

But can someone tell him why others clear the games using violence and force but his method of clearing the game is by kissing the boss?!

Cheng Zhi Chu: I am a straight man. Even if I kill myself or am killed by monsters, I will not kiss the boss!

Boss: Be good. Kiss me and I’ll let you go.


Bai Yi had been trapped in the game for many years.

Rather than exploding in anger in the silence, he had turned crazy. And so…….he split himself. His soul was broken into many pieces and each of them became the boss in the games.

But, regardless of how the soul was split, from the beginning to the end there was one thing that didn’t change —–He, likes Cheng Zhi Chu.

Every fragment of his soul was utterly in love with him.

It was also because of this that he and every fragment of his couldn’t stand seeing people other than himself getting close to Cheng Zhi Chu —- Even if the other party used to be a part of himself.

Dark desire gradually surged inside him.

Anyone who gets between him and Cheng Zhi Chu——even if it’s himself —– he would kill them all.


“The person who you should really kiss……is me.”

I binge read this novel. This is my first time ever writing a review, but I thought this novel was pretty good. It had ghosts, horror, what you would expect.

But GOD, is the ML stale. He has no personality. We barely know him, even at the end. I literally did not care about him in the least. The MC gets extremely stupid towards where he accepts he is in love.

... more>>

I would rather MC have a relationship with Xie Yuan Hua or any of the ghosts tbh. The majority of them have actual personalities and reasons to love MC besides "seeing him in a dream". I liked this story SOLELY because of the ghosts. Bai Yi was a terrible character, in my opinion. Mainly because his personality is just.... loving Chen Zhi for no reason?


But yeah, 4/5 for the instances. <<less

I really like this because horror genre not too much for me who dislike watch horror movie. Plus I feel that I able to see MC slowly toward what he become near ending of novel. Plus "arc" is not too long so it refresh for how MC involve with survival game. Plus this story plot do include "make sense" reasons why ML's soul spilt.

There are balance for comedy in diary from ML thoughts, plus fluff with ML and few objects. Big bonus ... more>>

there many skin-ship between MC and ML even with ML souls. So it not like out of blue for MC fell in love with ml... seem like ml's hard work pay off to not scare him in beginning of novel



for laugh, I feel that system should add that MC charm that able bend guys that isn't ML because we will see couple guys chase MC. Plus for ML endless eating vinegar (haha)

Reviews are contradictory on this one, I'm surprised about that, because some are opposite on same aspects, like pacing or story, or characters.


    • The story starts off with MC already being in the instance, the beginning is really fast-paced and serves as introduction that MC is now bound to infinite escape and to clear the instance he must kiss and collect the bosses (they're sealed as photos in a book), otherwise he'll be trapped inside forever. The feeling of the story bends towards horror games more as well as uses its' mechanics (like the use of skills, tonics, weapons and items) and horror part meant to create an atmosphere of creep and dread (no ironic type of horror you might find in 'I wasn't born lucky' or scream queens like in 'Game, live stream', if you read those). Deaths in these instances are gruesome and bloody as well as the overall descriptions of monsters. The author has put enough efforts in descriptions to immerse the reader, though some parts are a bit questionable, but it's managable. Right from the second instance the story introduces other players, including ML, who off the bat (in diaries that come at the end of each chapter) lays out the "mystery" behind bosses and himself, which is a split of his soul and each part being a boss in instances. That is how they all share mutual attraction towards MC and, obviously, jealous of each other. Also he slowly starts to reveal the story behind his and MC's history, that it's not plain - oh wow, what is this cute little person, must have.

    • MC. I will side-glance anyone who will claim he is smart, because he's basically not. He acts like an average person, he gets scared, he gets ideas how to deal with things, he runs from danger, he tries to save others, others also help him. Speciality: his luck is bad. The only really irking part of entire novel is the 'I'm straight' part, he stresses on it so many times that gets on your nerves, as if he tries to cnvince himself along with others.
    • ML. An obsessed type with usual pack of wanting to be together, kiss and do papapa. What eases the impression of him being weird is actually the fact that he is bosses and bosses are him, they're same person, so feelings described by the bosses are his feelings too and you can feel the loneliness and longing.
So far, enjoyable. Will be seeing how it goes.

So far, this novel has been pretty enjoyable! I say that as some weird fan of horror/survival BLs (Idk why I find them more fun to read than other genres), but also because the author attempts something fun with their writing. I haven't gotten to find out why the horror game exists, and I don't know if that's particularly relevant in the end, but the structure of the novel itself is typical: Reality --> Copy --> Reality, and repeat. The game system/mechanics are fleshed out somewhat in the story but... more>> not particularly in-depth. I feel like the author did it to progress the story but the stuff like level is pretty irrelevant except for special items called "Curses." I feel like there's going to be a relevant pay-off later on (there hasn't been one yet, outside out of a cute companion the MC gets). Considering that the novel is only 90 chapters, I think the author manages a good enough job despite rushing.

The main appeal for me of this novel is the slowly revealed history between the MC and ML. I guess I don't want to give too much away, but one crucial point is, the MC is not as straight as he keeps insisting he is (Romancing straight people is a general pet peeve, but I understood and tolerated it in this novel). Their history is revealed through the copies the MC/ML participate in... the copies themselves are okay? They're sometimes a bit gory in the description, but I guess that's the point of the genre, so credit to the author for making me feel that slight cringe.

The characters themselves are pretty fine. The ML is obsessive and a psycho (to other people besides the MC), but I don't know if that's his actual personality considering his soul got split into, get this, like 186 pieces. FYI, early on the MC gets this book that holds the portraits of all the bosses he has to kiss and there are that many empty slots lol. Considering the length of the novel, I'm pretty sure he does not manage to kiss them all but that would've been some kind of epic. So I'm hoping for a semi-normal ML by the end. He's actually pretty gentle and cute towards MC. Like the translator says, he has these little diary entries at the end of each chapter and they're pretty cute sometimes. When they're the possessive entries, they get kind of stale, but they're fairly short and more like a reflection of his thought about something related in the chapter.

MC has his own merits: he's kind and not particularly OP, which is always refreshing. He bumbles around and does his best, but I guess the most prominent part to him is how he keeps insisting he's straight. This is particularly relevant because he has (so far) three guys who are interested in him. Of the two non-ML characters, one is likeable and one is not. I'm not sure why the author included them as they don't really provide tension romance-wise (since we know who the MC will probably end up with)... but I guess they give an excuse for the ML to be psycho-possessive (in his head and hostile towards them).

That's as far as the thoughts I have so far on the novel. Hopefully it continues to be enjoyable and the development continues to be interesting. Worth a try! <<less

i liked it! I never realized there was a genre of horror and romcom combined, which really suits my tastes (i love horror), so I had fun with this one before dipping into "a crowd of evil spirits lines up to confess to me" and "to be a heartthrob in a horror movie."

MC acts exactly how the average joe would react - he thinks on his toes, gets scared crapless, and slowly starts getting onto the hang of things. If you're irritated by him continuously insinuated he's straight it's okay,... more>> in that line of thought he's acting exactly how an actual straight man acts if you probe their thoughts about liking men at all.

it's a unique story plot in my opinion, considering the ML's backstory. ML is a yandere if you didn't see the tags lol but I'm perfectly fine with that anyhow. His diary entries are pretty funny most parts. <<less

Already I can tell this novel deserves a 5 star rating. There aren't tons of novels that make me so tempted to go ahead and machine translate myself instead of being patient and waiting for the translator to work their magic. Machine translating is frustrating and I'm normally too lazy, so it's ultimately not worth the hassle. This is one of those novels that surpasses that barrier because its so damn intriguing that I can't stand the wait. There are two reasons why:

#1 (seen below) is the most influential... more>> reason for why everyone who likes bl should read this novel. It is also sadly, I'm worried, a mild spoiler : (


My favorite thing about the novel is the varying juxtapositions that bring things to a whole new level of intriguing. Our MC is put into what would be a horror situation in any other novel and yet, it's almost exactly the opposite because of the ML's help. Our ML comes off as noncommittal in the main story through the eyes of the protagonist, but then in his little side notes you see that he's anything but with a spicy possessiveness revealed.


#2 The ML is possessive of the MC. So, maybe this point wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but the ML's yandere like possessiveness hits the sweet spot for me. If that's what you're into for a ML this novel is 100% recommended. <<less

interesting premise though I find the MC to be a little too girly for my liking (as in he behaves like the female MC in many Chinese stories; clever but not smart, always pampered and in need of rescue by the ML). The latter half of the story did redeem him somewhat but he was still disappointing. On the bright side, he wasn't a total idiot MC.

the mystery kept me reading further and I'm surprised that we didn't get more copies before the end of the story; he only had... more>> 4 or 5 parts out of the 186 he was supposed to collect and at least 2 of those were real-world instances rather than game copies. I was hoping for 8-13 worlds, which is common for these kinds of stories, but this shorter than most.


I also wanted to see them tackle the big bad in a lot more detail. One chapter in the afterwords isn't really satisfying after everything he did

I like the plot though some arcs are good, the story is still shallow (probably bcoz it is fastwear). Though, there r discrepancies, I don't have a problem with the story especially the Arc 3 💕 that story is really... Sad 😭

Probably the thing that disappointed me is the MC. For the ML, although he's a little blood thirsty, it's okay. And I love reading his diary 😊

A very funny, lovely, & dramatic read.

There's comedic undertone so it's not that much of a horror novel, only using the pressure of those scary scenes as a boost to the story. Like icing on top of a cake.

... more>>

MC is a young boy that's forced by a system to enter a game and clear it by kissing the bosses. Some deep kissing scenes, well, most are deep. The main ML appears in the 2nd round as Bai Yi, a "player" too and helps MC to clear that round in the game. At that time, main ML already loves MC but acts as one of the players there to get closer to MC. Later, he helps in some of the other rounds, while others, MC has to clear himself.



My favorite parts are when MC has to struggle to kiss more than one boss in one round without the other boss finding out, or at least try to. Poor mc~


The ending was funny and very touching. Loved it a lot. <<less

REGRETFUL. It only has 90 chapters with 9 extrass.. I want more. The story was too good. The mystery and clues you wanted to search. The drama. I wanted to see 186 (?) fragments collected by MC and ML ~ should have extended it. Wu~

Want some horror with comedy and romance? This is the perfect novel for you~ ♡ (◡‿◡)

Translation is great and fast. I had fun reading the ML's diary and translator-sama's comments per chapter.

Slow paced story but very fun! Totally recommend 10/10 (*˘︶˘*).。.:*♡

(Will rate again after finishing the novel)

I dropping here. I think it has interesting characters and the plot is.. Somehow.. There.. But it crawls so sloooooow as a snail. People with lots of patience and affection towards horror games would be probably more happy than the one who search for fluff.

The translations are super. Thanks for that!
