Map

Map screen

Part of each quest is navigating through the map to each the goal post. Players can only move their character forward. Throughout each quest, there are several obstacles and hazards that may be present.

Suspending the Game & Returning to Quests

Should the game close for any reason, by choice, crashed, etc., you'll have the ability to return where you last left off. Upon reopening the app, you'll get the option to return to your quest by pushing [はい] or forfeiting the quest [いいえ] and return to the main menu. You will return at or relatively close from where you last left off, if you did not engage in a battle. See below for suspending and returning during a battle.

Movement

There are three ways to move across the map

  • Tapping on the upper or lower potion of the screen
  • Swiping up or down
  • Tapping on the arrows

Enemies

Enemies spawns are set in predefined locations across the map, but the enemies itself in that battle will be randomized. Certain enemies are completely optional to fight and can be skipped over if the player doesn't wish to fight them. There are three types of enemies

  • Normal enemies - Enemies that commonly appear throughout the map
  • Rare enemies - Enemies that don't appear as often. Often denoted by a gold palette swap of an existing enemy and sparkles, but the rare enemy varies per area.
  • Boss enemies - Commonly found at the end of the stage

Touching an enemy will begin the battle portion of the quest. One the enemy is defeated, the player is returned back to the map.

Item Drops

After defeating an enemy in battle, a player may receive cards, costumes, or costume materials. A player can hold up to 10 items per quest. There is no way to dispose of items in the middle of a quest. All drops are displayed at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Friends

Friends can be found on most maps at predefined locations. Landing on the same space as a friend will activate a random Magical Skill that they have in your next battle. If you do not have this user as a friend, you are given the option to add them at the end of the quest.

Warps

Warps transport to certain spots on the map, either forwards or backwards. The functionality of warps vary slightly with each map.

Jump Pads

Jump pads propel the player forward in the direction of the arrow. Smaller jump pads send a player a shorter distance while larger ones fling them further. Reverse jump pads function the exact same way, only propelling the player backwards.

Arrow

Sends the player to the next space according to the direction of the arrow.

Reverse Arrow

A spinning arrow that reverses the movement of the player while on the tile. The effect wears off after moving to the next space.

Damage/Trap Tiles

Reduces a percentage of the players HP depending on the size of the trap. The percent damage is based on the player's current HP. The players HP can't be reduced lower than 1 through damage tiles. Appearance changes with each stage.

Recovery Tiles

Tiles with a heart on them recovers a percentage of the player's max HP. Bigger hearts recover more HP. Appears in certain events such as Challenge Quest.

Blockades

A simple blockade that prevents you from moving onto that space.

GP Coins

GP coins can be found on certain spots on the map. Collecting these will give the player a random amount of GP. Does not count towards the item total.

Treasure Chests

Treasure Chests contains 1 MikuCoin and can be found on certain spots on the map on several stages. Clearing a quest with the treasure chest will send the MikuCoin to your gift box. Chests do count towards your item total.

Magical Notes

Can only be found in Normal Quests. Collecting these and clearing the stage will net the player 1 MikuCoin and increases the Music Level. Players are required to obtain all 4 Magical Notes as well as clearing each stage to move onto the next area. Magical Notes count towards the item total.

Event Points

Battle

Battle screen

Battles are pretty straightforward. Simply tap up to three cards that you wish to play when the icon is closest to the top of the circle. You have 5 seconds upon tapping the first card to finish playing two more cards otherwise turn will end. Battles are won after defeating all enemies.

Suspending the Game & Returning to Quests (Battle)

Should you close out of your game for any reason and return to the quest while you are in a, you are left off on your last active turn.

Set Icons

Set Icons will give bonuses to the cards played on those icons. Larger icons and light trails will have a greater effect on the card played. These bonuses are also affected by the set position as well, so a card played on an icon towards the top will have a better bonus than a card played on an icon towards the bottom.

Icon Effect
Star icon.png Grants the card more Skill Points
Heart icon.png Recovers HP based on the HP of the card set. Setting a card with high HP will recover more HP.
Sp icon.png Increases the Singing Power based on the Singing Power of the card set for that turn only. Setting a card with high Singing Power will give a bigger boost in Singing Power.

Set Positions

Depending on where the icon is positioned when a card is tapped depends on the benefits or penalties given to that card. Setting a card when the icon is positioned towards the top grants a bonus in Singing Power and more Skill Points while tapping while the icon is towards the bottom will result in a penalty, dealing less damage and given less Skill Points. Ratings are Great, Nice, OK, and no rating.

Perfect Combo

Getting three greats in the same turn will initiate a perfect combo, granting all cards played an extra 10 Skill Points.

Attributes

Attributes are a new feature added in the December 26 update. All cards and enemies now have attributes tied to them. If attacking with a card that has an attribute stronger than the enemy's attribute, you'll deal more damage, denoted by WEAK!. Likewise, you'll deal less damage if you attack with a card that has an attribute weaker than the enemy's attribute, denoted by RESIST!. The same rule applies when an enemy attacks any of your cards.
Note that attributes only apply to regular attacks & attacks dealt from counter attacks. Damage dealt from skills do not have attributes applied to them.

Refer to the table below.

Skills & Skill Combo

When a card has reached it's maximum number of Skill Points, a star will be placed on the top-right of the card and will begin to glow, indicating that a skill is ready to activate. The cooldown of the card will also reset, allowing you to play the card on your next turn. Simply tap the card and the skill will activate once your turn ends. Playing multiple cards will have the skills activate from left-to-right. There are certain exceptions when skills will not activate.

  • An attack skill card will not activate it's skill if the damage dealt from the card defeats the last enemy
  • A debuff skill card will not activate it's skill if the damage dealt from the card defeats the last enemy

Should the card have buffs for the player, the card may activate the skill regardless of the above conditions.

Enemies can also perform certain skills as well. Depending on the stage and enemy, their skill will activate after every set amount of turns. Not all enemies will have skills.

Skill Combo occurs when three card skills are activated on the same turn. All skills will reactivate at 50% effectiveness.

Magical Skills

Magical skills come from the magical items that are currently equipped. These can be used at any point during your turn, either at the start or during the countdown. Magical skills have a limited amount of uses in a quest, so make sure to use it as needed.

Lock On

Enemy Skills

Certain enemies have skills that'll activate after a certain amount of turns. Enemies with skills will have a small icon below their HP bar indicating how many turns are left before they activate their skill. As each turn passes, each marker will be colored yellow. When all markers are colored yellow, the enemy will activate their skill on that turn.

Auto Battle

Automatically plays cards, ignoring set positions. Auto battle is disabled by default at the start of each battle. Auto battle can be toggled on or off at any time.

Speed
