The App Review
Let me start by saying this is one very weird game, but its weirdness along with its cuteness is probably what captures people’s attention. In case you do not know Gacha is huge in Japan. These are those machines where you throw in a couple of bucks and out pops a little ball with something inside it.
There is actually a story in Gachaverse. I am not familiar with this franchise, but basically, the lovely and crazy world of Gacha has expanded throughout the whole universe and now there is some kind of corruption and only you can stop it. The story is odd, weird, and just downright strange, but it fits with the style of the game and is so crazy it works.
The basic idea of Gachaverse is that you will be creating your very own anime-style characters. This is more addictive than it sounds and you do it by opening different Gacha and using the items you get inside to customize your characters.
There are over 100 different anime-style characters for you to get and there are even more items of clothing and accessories for you to deck them out in. One thing I will say is the artwork in this game is great. The artist did a great job in bringing these characters to life and I really like how clean and sharp everything is.
You seem to earn in-game currency very easily in this game for pretty much doing nothing and that is awesome. Too many mobile games are trying to hustle you to spend a buck here or a buck there, but Gachaverse is much fairer in that regard. I really appreciate that, but this leads to the game’s biggest problem as there is not a whole lot to do.
So what do you do when you create your anime characters? Well, currently the main form of game gameplay is the studio mode. Here you can set out little skits where you can use different backgrounds along with the characters you have created to make fun anime stories that you can then share with other players of Gachaverse.
If you are into this kind of thing that is great, but if you are not then you will get bored pretty quickly. Also as this is a community-driven game there are some messed up stories out there so you might want to keep watch if this is a game your kids are playing. If creating stories and characters is something you like, Gachaverse is something you will have fun with.
The developers have said that there is an arena mode coming soon. This is going to be where you can use your characters to battle. With this, you can level up, earn new moves and so on. This is going to be the main game mode going forward, but it is not ready yet.
While Gachaverse is in early access. I can see why it is so popular.
If you like creating things, have a love for the anime style and like games where you collect stuff. Gachaverse is something you will get hooked on. I like how fair it is with the in-game currency and there is a lot of charm to the art style. It will be interesting to see how it changes when the battle mode is added.

- Very fair with its in-game currency
- Lots of choice for character creation
- You can create your own stories

- Not a whole lot to do
