Getting Started

The gameplay in Magical Girl is relatively easy, after setting your name, you will enter the tutorial phase.

When you start off, the game will take you to a tutorial, however, the tutorial is not very informative, so you will need to bear with it.

The game shows you as you go along what to do, by lighting up icons in a circle and slowly flashing on the icon.

In Magical Girl, there is no need to use any icons to toggle your character’s movements, weapons, and so forth. The gameplay is automated.

This means your character will move and attack by herself, without you having to watch her all the time. Enemies will spawn on each stage, and your character will move to the next stage automatically.

The only thing you will need to watch out for is when your character is defeated on a stage, you will be automatically set on auto-repeat of the previous stage.

You can change this setting by selecting the stage icon on the right-hand side of your screen and toggling “repeat normal stage” to the “off” display. See the image below:

You will easily notice when a stage is on repeat, by looking at your screen on the right-hand side. Beneath the stage number you are on, it will display, for example, Lava Swamp (Repeat).

    Magical Girl Display Screen and Icons

    In Magical Girl, the main screen has plenty of screen icons. These will be explored in more detail below:

    Top Left-Hand Side Screen Icons

    The top left of your screen displays your character’s name that you have selected, and just below your name, you will see your activated buffs. Here you are able to activate the following buffs:

    To the left of this first display, the first icon you find will be an overview of your account. Here you can see your account creation date, your character stats, as well as playtime, among others.
