Somersaulting into your device is the wonderful ‘Miraculous life’ by BUDGE studios, known for their female-centric games that mainly focus on Dress up and design games. The developer of games like Barbie’s Dream House has created a new idea with Miraculous Life where you play and experience the life of Ladybug, the game’s main character.
The game gives off a fun and energetic vibe throughout the gameplay, with the animation style resembling Disney shows. It also has anime-style gameplay, which appeals to younger generations.
The game targets the younger female market, with the main aspects of the game being dressing up, Interior design and romance, which is a sought out genre in the female mobile gaming market.
Miraculous Life Gameplay
Concept and Story
The player starts the game with Ladybug, the main character. The game uses ladybug to give the player exposition about the map, the mechanics and how to play. The story takes place in Paris, where there is an alien/monster infestation, and it’s up to Ladybug and her superhero friends to save Paris from all these invading monsters. As you start the game, you will explore different parts of the map like the Park, Ladybugs’ apartment, salon and the school area.
How to Play
The game starts in the park, introducing the player to how to move and collect the coins. The movement is fairly easy; the player has to touch where the character needs to move instead of manually taking every step, like in other free-roam games.
The map is straightforward and user-friendly, allowing the user to travel quickly to any of the main locations in the game. The map is called Paris, and you can select whichever areas you want to travel fast. Some locations are only available for premium users who have to pay a monthly subscription to unlock these parts.
Throughout your journey through the map, you will experience different scenarios where the civilians need the help of a superhero to save them from the attacks of monsters. You can see weird pink flower-like structures on the streets of Paris; this is not just a visual element, but a person is stuck there.
Ladybug is very well equipped to handle this situation; switch to the superhero mode and attack the trap. When you attack the trap, you are given three different spots to touch. Their spots are attack prompts; when you click all these spots, you will successfully free the civilian trapped under it.
Throughout the game, just like saving the civilians, there will also be culprits who captured the civilians. These pink giants are a danger to Paris, and it’s up to Ladybug to defeat these monsters. When you cross paths with them, don’t avoid them, but take them on. When the battle begins, there will be different prompts that, if you follow correctly, will attack the monster and dodge their attacks.
Customization & Progression
The game is not all about fighting and protecting Paris but also provides a wide range of fun activities to help the player relax and unwind. Budge Studios ensured they added their main aspect to the game to cater to their target market.
All the coins you collect in the game unlock new clothing articles in the wardrobe, which you can open at any time and change the outfit and style of the character. This helps make the game personalised to the users’ ideas and styles. You can also change the design of the interior of the apartment of Ladybug, but that feature remains behind a paywall. Progression in the story requires the premium version, but still, you can explore the map and enjoy the other aspects of the game.
Miraculous Life – Tips and Tricks
- Instead of only looking for coins on the streets of Paris, try to look for civilians in distress. If you help them, they will pay you coins right there.
- If you wish to progress smoothly with the story, get the premium version, but make sure you enjoy the game before you do so.
- The game has a decent-sized map where many people need protection and saving; explore as much as you can.
Miraculous Life is a fun simulation game, but it will take some time and investment to enjoy the game’s full potential. The game’s design is very interesting, focusing on Disney-like animation and style. The game provides a wide range of activities that satisfy several players and their needs. This game has it all: action, fight to dress up, and interior design.
But this game may not be for everyone as it primarily targets the female audience. So the game might not feel interesting to the male audience.
