Girls that sing and fight? Wow!
Welcome to the world of Revue Starlight.
Re:Live is the mobile game version of the hit anime Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight. However, you don’t have to watch the anime to play the game. In fact, I watched the anime after starting the game so I mean…
The game format is pretty simple. It’s a turn-based battle game. Once it’s your turn, you will choose your move sequence, and after you’ve made your move, it will be your opponent’s turn.
But this is where it gets more complicated. There are 6 slots for moves to be made (if I remember correctly, I haven’t played in a while because I was so busy). And each move will cost a certain amount of slots (ie. simple moves cost 1 or 2 and stronger moves cost 3 or 4 slots).
If you look at the image above, there is a orange bar under the green HP bar. The orange bar is the climax bar. Once you fill up the brilliance bar, you can use the girl’s “ultimate” move. (Please note, I call it an ultimate move but that doesn’t mean that you’ll automatically kill your opponent. Some of them are guard skills, others can be damage skills, some are AOE skills, so read them carefully when using them.). If you stack 2 or more climax acts, you can choose a final act, which is an additional AOE attack to your opponent.
Unfortunately, there is a gacha in this game. And what’s even more sad is that the memoirs are together with the characters. Which means that even if you pull a rainbow envelope, it doesn’t guarantee that you’ve pulled a 4-star character. (happens a lot. the chance of getting a 4-star memoir is higher than getting a 4-star character).
There are generally 2 modes, the one where you go against monsters/CPUs and another one where you go against other players in real time.
The first mode is pretty straight forward. You go against those monsters which usually has a set move lineup. As long as your character lineup is at a higher level than the monsters, it’s pretty easy to beat that floor.
However, the second PVP mode requires a lot more strategizing. Because you’re going against another player, their moves will be more unpredictable. But if you’re bored of playing fighting monsters, you can always take your chances in the PVP arena!
I’ve mentioned memoirs before, but memoirs are basically cards that can be attached to each character to boost their attack/defense/critical rate/etc. If you pair the character and memoir together, you should see a boost in the character’s stats. If you pair a strong memoir and a strong character together, then you’ll get a good character for battle. Pretty simple. Just pull gacha. A lot.
Like most games, Re:Live also has events. Most of them are to battle against CPU and collect items that can later be used to exchange for good items. Along with the event will be an event gacha, where you can pull for characters that will have boosted stats for that event. It’s pretty cool.
There’s also a multi-player mode that allows you to form a team with friends/other players and play against stronger CPUs! It’s a lot of fun, and the CPUs might drop good items, who knows hehehe.
Alright. That’s all I can think of for now. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll try to clarify/answer any of them!
