Goddess Era is an idle game which features beautiful goddess fighting at your side to fight other goddess. While it doesn’t make too much sense, i doubt you downloaded the game to understand any part of it. Your clearly here for some obvious reasons!! Who would blame you!!! To find out more on these very lightly clothes goddess, let’s start the review.
What is the Story of Goddess Era?
Continent Valar, where people live and work in peace and happiness. However, the appearance of Original Crystal made all the powers move. The former vow of peace was broken, the continent was plunged into war, and even the gods joined it.
In this chaotic world, who will rise and who will fall? Our selected warrior, it’s your time to write the story!
How is Goddess Era Game play?
You will jump immediately into the tutorial which will assist you in learning how to fight and discover the mechanics of the game. Although, everything is quite straight forward, the game is the standard formula of nearly all idle RPG. You will need a team of 5 goddess to fight another team of goddess and win within a number of turns. Of course, you will be able to summon, level up, upgrade and much more. We will go in more details below.
At the start of the tutorial, you will learn about summoning a goddess. This is the most important part of the game! As your progression will largely depend on it unless you decide to spend money in the game. You can summon either with tickets or gems or friendship points, both can be obtain as in game rewards. However the Light and Dark tickets are only for cash player. Four banner is available :
- Premium Summon – Randomly summon goddess between 3 to 5 stars
- Basic Summon – Randomly summon goddess between 1 to 5 stars
- Friendship Summon – Randomly summon goddess between 2 to 5 stars
- Light/Dark Summon – Get 5 stars Goddess for each 10 summon
Keep in mind that you don’t have a pity or guaranteed a 5 star goddess in any of the F2P summon. Unless it’s for timed summon event where you may obtain the goddess that you needed but the summons are quite expensive.
Once your done summoning, you will have some goddess in your roaster. Select the one you find suitable to make a good team synergy. A good synergy for example can be a team who has a least a Defender, Fighter, Mage and Support. The 5th is place can be anything depending on your formation and team synergy. As all idle RPG, goddess does have elements namely Heroic, Demigod, Nature, Light and Dark.
Keep in mind those elements when fighting against team with elemental weaknesses. Goddess start at 3 star to 5 star, 3 star and 4 star are fodder for upgrade and below 3 stars are monsters that are completely useless beside getting some gems and experience if you sacrifice them. All the 5 star Goddess are not equal as in other games. They have different ranking of S namely S-, S and S+. S+ being the best unit in the game and harder to obtain. S- being the most common and easier to obtain.
You can equip your goddess with 4 piece of gear. Those gear can be upgraded to the next grade by getting a number of copy of them. Luckily all the goddess uses the same equipment, so no need to have a headache keeping Tank gear or DPS gear. Equipment can be removed without any cost, so feel free to switch equipment from a tank to a DPS if needed.
Next important thing is leveling and upgrading your goddess. You can level up your goddess with experience and gold. After a certain level cap you will need to use Tier up crystal to limit break to the next max level. Once you reached the max level for the current star, it’s time to upgrade your goddess to 6 star and further if you can. But you will need 5 star goddess as fodder and you will need a lot of them.
Even that you can upgrade your 4 star goddess to 5 star goddess to use as fodder. You will find yourself always lacking of fodders later on. Meaning that you should really focus on 1 hero per element to be efficient. Avoid using S- goddess unless, it’s your support unit. The advice is mostly for F2P and light spenders, you have been warned.
Seal and amulets slots will be open when you increase the stars of your goddess. They can also be upgraded to next tier providing that you have the necessary amount of copy. Last thing is you can rebirth you goddess for free up to 3 times a day. But it only reset the level of your goddess, it will not return any fodder used to star that goddess. So be very careful when upgrading your goddesses.
This is inventory where currency, shards, tickets, beasts and jewelry will be. Beside the sell, equip and use item, the bag doesn’t have anything in particular. Only thing to keep an eye is the goddess shards, so that you can summon after reaching the amount of stacks. Very helpful when you need dupe or fodder to star a Goddess.
Those guys are your ultimate skill, pick between 5 dragons depending on which passive your looking. The dragon will deal a certain amount of damage to some enemies when the energy bar is full. You can upgrade your dragon level, refine and skill with specific currency. This may take some time but your dragon can save you from a defeat by killing the annoying support healer for example.
You can progress through the campaign here, battling stage to stage until you need a higher level account to continue further. The bounty is where you send your troops on expedition. Bounty does cost a certain currency that you will obtain while doing the campaign. Let’s not forget the beginners missions where you will obtain all kind of goodies to help you progress further into the game as long as you complete the tasks.
Auto fight is sadly locked behind VIP, so you will need to manually start the fight by yourself. The Raid will help you obtain experience and other goodies for a certain amount of hours. You can raid multiple time per day but it will cost you gems. It is the most effective way to progress faster in the game as the campaign is very easy. Gold rain is the same as raid but only gives you gold, why not put it together with raid??
All of the other game modes beside the campaign is here. I’ll just make a list to describe briefly all of them is possible:
- Arena – Solo PVP mode.
- Guild – Donate, fight boss, fight against other guilds and increase your goddess class stats.
- Dragons Back – Climb the challenge tower to obtain better rewards and experience
- Airship – Your resources grind dungeons, another simpler labyrinth mode and PVP mode to obtain titles.
- Wonderland – A labyrinth type of game with multiple mini games where you answer questions, fight goddess, etc.
- Cross Arena – Multiple inter server PVP battle for both solo and team.
- Portal – Link up servers each week for PVP battle
- Paradise – Currently not available.
The home is the place where you will see all those shenanigans from timed offer to your mail, etc. I won’t go in much details into those things because most of them are mostly related to cash shop or notifications which doesn’t affect the game directly. You can switch background or goddess in your home.
Dreamland is suppose to be a little lobby where you can craft your equipment in the Smithy. Star up or sacrifice your goddess in the Palace, note that you can also rollback to 5 star later on by using another currency. Finally you have the Yggdrasil, the place where you can put a goddess to obtain level automatically up to your lower goddess level in your team.
Shop is the place where you can spend all those different type of currency. All token farmed from Arena, raids, guild, gems and the list is indeed very long. Going for each tab will need an entire article itself. The gems tab has many items locked behind that damn VIP. Note it’s a sure way to obtain a Light and Dark unit for F2P providing your playing everyday.
Altar is your faction summon, your guaranteed to obtain at least a 4 star goddess and some different currency. You can try your luck re-rolling a goddess of a faction expect light and dark. This may be useful to turn 4 star goddess which you upgrade to 5 star into an actual 5 star goddess which you may need to star later on. You can summon a selected faction when you accumulate enough currency but it’s another feature locked behind VIP.
Fancy shop is your general shop where you can buy equipment, fragments and many other useful items with only gems and gold. You can refresh up to 5 times for free, the free refresh take around 2 hour. You should only buy items that you need and that are on discount, because things can really get expensive. It’s also the easy way to obtain cheaper premium summon ticket if you need to summon.
This is the strongest point of the game, a high detail 2D animated artwork. They art is nearly similar to League of Angels and Destiny Child, meaning they are very bouncy around the chest and the bottom. Those sexy skimpy goddess are the reason many of us would start playing this idle game unless you have other reason, like having to make a review on it. All the goddess looks very different from each other and are very well drawn.
Raising goddess stars don’t add any special animation or aura or even change their appearance. Combat is not that terrible, they added some effect to the attacks and skills. The results looks, let’s say okay. At least it’s not another of those chibi fighting animation where you don’t understand a thing and can’t differentiate who is who? As for background, it’s the basic static one. Looks good enough for an idle game.
Note that Goddess Era don’t have any clothing damage and don’t have any bond system that may show you even more skin. I think, the it’s already has enough of fan service, you can see nearly all the list of cliche from panty shot to extra cleavage. So if you want more, pray that Nutaku makes an adult version that can satisfy your fantasy.
Doesn’t really apply to this game as everything is mainly on auto. You will only manage your team position and have to level them up manually.
Sound & Music
The game has only 3 track which auto repeats infinitely, the music itself is not bad but there’s a limit how lazy you can get. The sound effect for 3 star is dangerous, they sound like hentai girls getting touched. Turn off the sound when you summoning as this will save you lots of trouble. As for the voice acting each 5 star has only 1 line. I think Goddess Era was out of budget after animating in such details those goddess.
What is the Game Length of Goddess Era?
As an idle game, the daily task takes around 5 to 10 min to complete. Then you can just come online to collect idle time or refresh the shop or collect the gold rain. But the weekly quest is a bit more annoying to complete. You need to at least participate in a PVP mode which starts only in weekend, some event like betting happens only for 1 hour. I miss 3 weekly rewards because i miss the time the event on weekends.
The game has one of the best quality of life, multiple combat at the same time. This is huge for an idle game, as you can do multiple fight in different mode at the same time and complete your daily in a flash. Some combat can even be skipped later on when your account is high enough. The campaign is locked behind your account level, so i have personally no idea of the extend of the story, sorry about that.
Is Goddess Era Free to play?
Sadly this game is not too F2P. Even they do offer you ways to build a team to a reasonable level, the game requires dupes and fodder at some points. You will starve yourself as F2P and will have to wait quite a long time to be able to upgrade your goddess. I would stay away from this game as only the top of the server can have access to certain ladders and rewards. Unless you want to try your luck against some whales.
Is Goddess Era Pay to win?
Yes, it is a P2W game. Endgame contents relies on having higher level Goddess to compete in PVP and to climb ladders. The VIP is only available by spending money and some quality of life is locked behind it. The light and Dark Banner is for spenders only and those units are the best units in the game. The number of Battle Pass will make your account raise Goddess to max stars easily and offer so much benefits.
No Ads but you will get some annoying offer which keep popping in your face each time you get a 5 star goddess.
It’s one of the most standard cash in mobile games. You can buy almost everything in the game from gems, gold, goddess, materials, VIP, battle pass, skins and special summons in form of packages. Although the starting price are very low, things may ramp up quickly when shopping. I would strongly advice to be careful when spending as buying from multiple tabs can be confusing. Also those packages of low cost stacks up quickly and may costs you a lot.
What is the Life span of Goddess Era?
The game is doing well as it’s opening more and more server nearly every week. But how about the old servers, they are nearly dead servers which have around 100 player still playing. Goddess Era made a common mistake like many other games, opening too much new server. It’s true that player can re roll easily but what will happen to a server if everyone is just jumping ship? In the end, they will get an infinite loop of fix player just re-rolling in new server instead of new player joining.
That is bad news for a Goddess Era, the game has barely anything to keep people playing. Not enough skins, no bond system and no incentive to stay in a server. At this rate, things can easily go south and the game may die when the hype goes down. Again this is a supposition, things could bright and this game may become even better and still be here for years. I would stay clear about spending until the game is out completely.
The only benefits beside micromanaging your team of beauties and interact with other people in the world chat. The obvious white elephant in the room is you are here to wash your eyes with those beauties and don’t tell me your not because your obviously lying. Parents keep those kind of game away from your children, it’s literally poison to their mind.
- Add a way for F2P to obtain to VIP points
- Fodder Dungeon is missing
- Remove Light/Dark banner restriction for PVP
- Add a pity system to x10 premium summon
- Change the betting system for better accessibility. For example betting during the day of the week and match plays out on weekend
- The old servers are dying because many players are moving to new servers, consider adding stuff that make player stay on the server
- Add some control when a goddess can use it’s skill, this will make the game less auto
- The other Dragons needs more appealing buff as everyone just using black dragon
Game is still in early access, so many new features are being added and they are fixing bugs. Also notice they do update the art of some goddess.
Should you play Goddess Era?
Yes, you should try it. I have underestimate this game, thinking it’s just another lewd game with cheap 2D graphic with only bouncy stuffs and no game play elements. But i was wrong, Goddess Era is a solid idle game, you will be surprise the amount of time you will spend in the game. The theme is of course not for kids as it barely cross the line between a Sexy game and a Nutaku game where they go all out but it’s in the middle of it, i think you get the idea.
One downside of the game is the accessibility for F2P, as VIP is needed to get some quality of life and to create a Guild. The game also relies too much on luck, your progression depends too much on it. Other than that the game is very neat, simple and addictive, you unlock more and more stuff as your account levels up. As for F2P, you can easily change server if you got bad pulls and start over. You don’t lose much in terms of progression. Just be careful of those different type of currency special the cash one.
