It's pretty fun for now, through the honeymoon phase that all gachas seem to have at least. You have different units that can only be positioned either on high ground or on the floor, ranged and melee, all sorts of skills and gimmicks. Seems to be pretty free-to-play friendly too. Also, for those that care about this sort of thing, most of the anime girls are toned down on fanservice, so you can play it in public without getting that look.

It's still in the new release phase too, so lots of freebies right now.


What say you, gacha-GAF? I know you're out there.

Nope and I stay as far away as these pay to win games as far as possible, while they could be fun at first they usually tend to be bogged down later and not worth the effort or money put into it.

Maybe if it got a proper native PC version, hard pass on bluestacks and the like.

I get it, these type of games are like "candy" to me. Not really fulfilling but great in small doses. That said, due to the nature of the game, there is no PVP, so you can't really pay to get ahead of other players other than beating levels easier maybe?

Fair, it's got a very clean interface, but I get your apprehension with bluestacks.
