The Gacha phenomenon is sweeping the mobile gaming world by storm. Gacha Life characters, movies, pictures, YouTube videos, cute animations, drawings, and various other publications have millions of views and are being made by children. Yes, by that we mean actual children, like elementary school age. It is not thus surprising that, given their unsupervised access to the web, that the topics of these Gacha ideas are mostly in the naughty section, and we mean adult material. Flooded with LGBT and liberal 18+ ideas, which are transcribed onto Gacha Life Characters, this game has already grown into parental concern.

We take a look at the game with an in-depth description to help you understand what game is, how it is different from other gaming apps with a similar name, and what is it used for. The second part of this page will be dedicated to the game’s player community, with guides, tips, tricks, and other stuff for game characters, gameplay, etc…

gacha life mobile game


It is an Android and iOS casual gaming app, made by Lunime. Oddly enough, it is not even in the gacha genre, only perhaps in the broadest sense of the word. Gacha genre is another word for hero collector games, which feature mechanics for obtaining, unlocking, or purchasing various characters. Here, the focus is not on that, but on character creation, customization, and ultimately in making videos. So, the short version is, it is a gaming app for making animations with pre-set assets, character customization, and various pre-set scenarios and mechanics.

It is very similar to all other mobile games with the “Gacha” in their title. So much so, that they are all, in fact, made by this same company, Lunime. Gacha Studio (Anime), Gachaverse (RPG), Gacha World, Anime Gacha!, Gacha Resort, Gacha Memories, and countless others are all credited to Lunime.

The difference between them is not that easy to explain to someone not familiar with the in-game, but in plain words, Gacha life is similar to Gachaverse, but it is a game with more content and advanced features, while Gachaverse is focused on Character customization and something called “Chibi style”. Chibi Style in Japanese slang means short or quick artwork, but it can mean other things as well.

On Google Play, Gacha Life Android has a 4.4-star score, with around 2 million votes, and the game has been downloaded over 10 million times!!! The situation is similar on the iTunes App Store, where it has a 4.5-star score, with almost 100k ratings, and it is #14 in role-playing.

gacha life mobile game


Given the nature of the context in which kids who play game mostly go for, this game has caused mass controversy and hysteria on the web. If you want a quick look at what we mean by this, just type in Gacha Life on YouTube or Google and see the titles of the most viewed videos. They will mostly be referring to some adult theme, LGBT, and other 18+ content, often too weird and too far gone that it could produce a negative effect, so be advised. Oddly enough, it is rated PEGI 3, but most other parental advisory sites rate it 9+ or even higher. It is mostly because the community is heavily soaked with content including adult themes and relationship materials between characters, but also because the game offers loads of in-game purchases and ads which exploit underage users with access to a credit card.

gacha life mobile game


In a nutshell, this is a gaming app that promotes creating content, stories, pictures, and animations using Gacha Life characters and other available assets. It is aimed at promoting creativity and creating an environment in which younger audiences can sort of creating their games or animations. In theory, this does sound good and beneficial, if not for the terribly wrong turn to the explicit content.

GAMEplay

It possibly has the largest character customization pool in the mobile gaming…


gacha life mobile game


Players can create characters with an incredibly wide array of customizations, and we’re talking wide, possibly the largest character customization pool in mobile gaming. Secondly, they can create their own stories for these characters, with chat bubbles, scenes, and everything a movie maker, director, producer, and writer would do. And, lastly, they can watch it unfold the way they meant it and share it with the community via the web. Not, this is where it all went wrong, with the explicit themes dominating the content created. Some videos have several millions of views.

With the players doing virtually everything else, the sole focus of the development team was to create valuable tools and assets for the player to use. With the familiar animation style, minimalistic animations, and colorful chibi-style characters, this game offers everything a player might need to do what it is intended, which is to create multimedia content within the limits of its asset list, and it is a wide list for sure.

gacha life mobile game


On the other hand, the minimalistic, chibi-style models, and animations are not demanding in terms of tech and Smartphone quality. The iOS version requires iOS 8.0 or higher and it has a PEGI 9+ rating, up from 3+ on Google Play which is weird. Android users will need Android 4.0 or up.

gacha life mobile game


It is free to download and play, but with all the assets offered by the game, many of the prestigious ones are not free. This is where you’ll find the monetization trap, for the prestigious cosmetics are widely spread across the community, and making a trendy video would presumably rely on using these premium features. However, the player can access all of the game’s features without paying a single dime, and if you are not into fashion trends and competing with in-game cosmetics, you will be ok.

Verdict

gacha life mobile game


Game earned its popularity and controversial status many times over. Firstly, with so many similar titles developed by Lunime before, they’ve honed their skill and this game has the perfect delivery. This is one of the best gaming apps of its kind in the market, no two words about it, and it is not the developers’ fault that the community is using it to create mostly explicit content. However, due to the nature of the explicitness and some often disturbing themes, a parental advisory is strongly advised!

Gacha Life guides and TIPS

How to improve your gaming experience and gameplay…

Note: Use the button “GUIDES” in the lower right corner to jump back to this section.

It has a more static gameplay design, with social interactions as the main focus of the action. Making jokes and interesting conversations between characters is what it is all about, with additional games available on the side. It goes without saying that making guides about how to make a popular video, trendy Gacha Life characters, or a cool story would be missing the point, as that part is best left to the players’ imagination. However, the community is interested in certain gameplay mechanics and features. We will try and answer the most commonly asked questions.
