Nathan Hunter, as well as five hundred other seniors at his high school, found themselves pulled into the deadly game in an alternate dimension of their school, where they had to survive against increasingly tough monsters while completing a series of Challenges as their numbers continued to dwindle with no end in sight. With no way off the property, nor any way out of the alternate and back to their real dimension, Nathan and his classmates battle for survival in the hopes that eventually, they will be freed from the game.


Warning: Things will get repetitive at times, particularly after Arc 1. The reason for this becomes clear in the first couple of chapters of Arc 2. It is simply the nature of the lives they lead.

I'm sure there are similar stories. My only complaint is somewhere around chapter 18, Nathan seems to have completely changed the way he decides to interact with people just because 

Spoiler: Spoiler

 Otherwise keep up the good work author really enjoying the series.wink

The characters are super bland and so is the action but the premise more than makes up for it. It is overall a good read and has a follow from me but it is a bit repetitiive .

Inconsistent chapter names 0.5/5. Character lengh per chapter name keeps jumping around. Completly ruined the immersion.

Badass School Deathgames

No proper reviews, yet 'Agent of the Alternates' definitely deserves one as of chapter 26. I read absolutely everything that makes the top popular stories and was surprised not to see this work earlier. It has plenty of chapters and a lot going for it.

The concept has been done before in mangas and light novels... Sometimes on RR as well but never successfully. A classroom is transported to a different dimensions and the classmates must survive. Great setting for action and mystery alike. The litrpg elements don't overshadow anything either. It's hard to do this setting properly as there's many styles and elements to balance. Yet overall I've really enjoyed this work this far.

5/5 Style

Absolutely nothing wrong with the prose. I find everything easy and compelling to read, with clear understanding of how to create mystery or write action. The MOST important point in these is including clear foreshadowing and plot points in advance as some characters are built as troubling elements; student that know more or act towards hidden objectives. To reveal them later on as the protag uncovers the hidden strongs. Up until now, it's been well done and I hope that the author keeps on putting effort to keep everything interesting and the different styles balanced in the future.

The few sex scenes are somewhat bland but that's forgivable.

4.5/5 Story

It's good. It started slow which is rare for the genre, but I grew more and more interested. Just enough world building elements are introduced as chapters go on, and as mentioned before, the story is clearly planned. Properly built and foreshadowed. I would however classify this work more on its action and characters than its story per say; either way there's enough overarching story to keep the whole interesting.

5/5 Grammar

Found one or two very minor typos; the grammar in this work is at printed book levels of grammar

4.5/5 Characters

The characters in this type of work are especially important in creating mystery and tension; who in the classroom is your ally, your enemy...

The MC starts off as a badass loner until he breaks out of his shell (for love of course!). The  main female character puts up a strong front until a certain event. A mystery magician, a confrontational girl, a bullying jock...

The traditional shonen stereotypes are all strongly used here but to good effect. Don't expect your mind to be blown but there's satisfaction to be had in the classical!

 

TLDR OVERALL SCORE 5/5

"Classroom stuck in a killer game" work. Excellent writing style, good supporting story, stereotyped but changing characters all with near perfect grammar. It's been a fun ride and I'm just counting on the author to make sure the tension and world continues to unfold without stagnating

Excellent work in the genre, bravo

I really like this story. The characters are kind of extreme personalities, but they're described well for all that.

So far the story has been excellent. It has the right amount of High School Cliques and Social interaction mixed with the fight of their lives. 

Makes me wish that something like this happened in real life at my High School, I know that most of the jocks would have been eliminated in the first challenge as they were all jerks.

Well written story. The characters seem a little weird, but I'm guessing that's a cultural thing.
