What is Star Healer?
 

Star Healer is a newly released 2D Side scrolling Action/Shooter RPG. In Star Healer you are Sakura, a girl who has been taken to the galaxy of sweetness, where everything is made of sugar! But even a sugar land has its bitter time, and with the invasion of a virus who wanna destroy the world, you must save it with the help of new companions! Team with up to three characters that you can fully control and switch between them, geared with different weapons of your choice and with the help of Pets! You can customize your character with Sugar Cubes (a sort of gear) and can use different sets of weapons based on your preference (from a ranged weapon to a melee). 

 

Game Content Explained


Game Console

 

 

This is literally the “main story” mode of Star Healer. Here you have different planets (Actually 7 with 10 stages each) and you fight hordes of monsters with usually a boss at the last stages. You need to clear the previous world to continue exploring them. On the game console you can also play “Plot” stages to experience the story of the game and get rewards, and “Mission” that are tasks that reset every day, and give you rewards for completing them. You also unlock “Hard Mode” of worlds after completing them in normal mode.

 

Golden Mount

 

 

Golden Mount is a time-based content where you can earn different rewards (Jelly - Stars - cubes, etc.) based on how fast you can clean it! The faster you kill enemies, the more rewards you get! You need a ticket to enter it and will refresh with time.

 

Resources Region

 

 

The Resources Region is the best place for gathering different kinds of rewards (even Stamina!) once/twice a day! It requires you to complete the corresponding region to unlock the stage, and consume some stamina to enter it, but the rewards are great so it’s totally worth it!

 

Simulation

 

 

In Simulation you can check all the Characters, Pets and Weapons you have already unlocked, while also clicking on them to level them up or evolve.

 

Boss Briquet Shop

 

 

This is the Real Money Shop of the game. It actually covers a lot of tabs, from Daily gift, where you can receive daily income and a character with skin for a price, it also changes everyday, so check if often if you are interested! Gift packs that give you jelly (summon currency) with different prices, Skins for your characters to unlock, Jelly Privilege for a 30 days long rewards everyday, and Jelly / Gumdrop top up where you can spend real money for game currency.

 

TV Dog

 

 

The TV Dog is the place to check the Daily Login rewards, while also gathering free stamina at 6:00 - 12:00 - 18:00 every day for free! Always check it when you log into the game!

 

Achievement

 

 

The Achievement Tab offers a lot of rewards (especially summon currency!) every time you complete one of them. They are divided by different categories, from Simulation (giving you rewards for leveling up) to battle (doing X damage or Kill X boss/monsters) to the collection (Unlock heroes or receive special mails etc.)

 

MailBox

 

 

Although you may think Mailbox is where you only receive normal mail, you are wrong! The Mailbox in this game is super special, since every time you finish a new stage, level up a character, or unlock a new one, anything you do in the game, you will receive Special mails from characters, or pets! They will say thank you, tell you stories and always reward you with Gacha currency! Isn't that sweet as the game itself? 

 

Merge

 

 

With the Merge function you can use Characters / Weapon and Pets dupes to increase the blood purity of your most used units and weapons / pets. Increasing blood purity will give you more stats and power, but also the used currency will disappear, so choose carefully!

 

Black Hole

 

 

With Black Hole, you can get rid of unused Characters, Weapon or Pet and receive material based on the type of unit you have consumed. This way you can get rid of dupes in exchange of exclusive materials/fragments and coins.

 

Candy Washer

 

 

With Candy Washer you can consume unused sugar cubes to enhance the power of your most used ones! You also need to choose to spend Stars or Electric source as currency for enhancing.

 

Event

 

 

The Event tab has plenty of time-based events that will change with time. At the OBT time, there’s multiple events running on!


Operating Activities will reward you for simple task like logging in or complete stages, 7 Days Reward will give you a Weapon, currencies and a character on the last day, Corresponding Pull is a high cost stage, but it reward you with  exclusive items for your characters, Candy Pirate is the major event at the moment, complete stages, collect currency and redeem a lot of valuable items from the event shop! 

 

How to Become Stronger


Character

 

 

Your character, same as your weapon and pet, must be leveled up and geared for being strong. Here’s what you have on your character screen:

 

1 The Skin of your character you can choose to wear
 2 A picture mode for your character
 3 The best weapon for your character to use 
 4 Promote your character with Dupes
 5 Increase the level of your character with Energy 
 6 Your character stats and skill description


Weapon

 

 

Your weapon is the main source of your damage, so leveling it up and promoting it is a must. On the screen you can see:

 

1 The Weapon damage type 
2 The Promote for increase stats consuming dupes
3 The Level up function that uses energy
4 The stats of your weapons and damage type/range etc.

 

Pet

 

 

Pets are lovely companions that will help you with different kinds of skills. The best part is Pet can’t die during battle, so having them leveled up and strong is the best! In the pet tab you have:

 

1 The promote function that uses dupes
2 The level up system with energy
3 The Pet stats and Skill description

 

Resources

 

 

Characters, Weapon and Pets, all together need different kinds of resources (like the one on the screen) for Promote. Best places for getting those resources is directly explained by click on them (Normal/Hard stages and also Resources Region)


Remember to gather those resources every time a Character, Weapon or Pet reaches max level, so you can promote and stars-up. Starring up also changes the skin, usually, improving its visual aspect!
