Love Live! School Idol Festival is a social rhythm game for mobile devices (both for iOS and Android) produced by KLabGames and bushiroad. In the game, the player creates units based on collectible virtual cards and performs Live concerts with a designated unit. All the songs used in the game are sung by members of the Love Live! franchise idol groups: μ’s, A-RISE and Aqours.

Has made me very spoiled. I can’t help compare games to it because it’s the first rhythm game I actually got hooked on. I tried the demos for Project Diva, but I’m not fond of Miku (I like Gackpoid the most, blame Gackt for being the voice xD), and to be honest, rhythm games with buttons is a bit…weird. Again, I’ve totally gotten spoiled with the touch screen experience for rhythm.
I haven’t watched the anime, but I quickly fell into Love Live hell. The girls are cute, gay as fuck, and the songs they sing are 90% catchy and so good, it’s ridiculously good!
This game is a bit like crack, once hit, it’ll be hard to drop, specially as in the beginning you get to play a lot and quickly level up and unlock new songs (that makes it very addicting to want to S score and S combo).
As I’ve progressed though, I don’t play as much. Songs cost more energy, energy takes six minutes per one point, and if I’m not playing around the clock, I don’t level up once per day. So I’ve been playing twice per day.
I’ve finally been able to reach the goal of one of the events, mostly because I really needed a Cool SR on my deck. That’s another thing. It gets harder to bond and idolise characters, and that means less love gems.
I always reach fifty gems and then spend, when there’s no event or otherwise the draws are weak!, and at first I was able to pimp out so much gems because it was easy to get new cards and idolise.
Max levelling takes time, and the only reason I do to all of the Rares/SR idolised ones is because I get love gems as reward! Because after a while, you realize that those other four? Those, you aren’t using outside of bond time, because they’re weaker than your other ones.
One thing I really like is how difficulty scales, very beginner friendly and as it ramps up, the rewards get better and it’s worth your time to reach Hard and then Expert.
I’ve only recently been able to do Expert, and it’s only the weaker songs. Twelve stars murder me pretty viciously, but I know if I hang on and keep doing the other weaker ones until I get really good, I’ll reach those harder ones! ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ
That’s my thoughts and opinion on the game. I have no plans to do a review, I much prefer this type of blog posts （-＾〇＾-）
Happy gaming everyone, and keep on it! Ｏ(≧∇≦)Ｏ
