Event Bingo

By doing clearing the bingo board you can receive event cards  and other items. (I’ll add more info on my event posts)


There a few different types of gacha in Garm Struggle. There is the Card Gacha and the Costume Gacha. There is a Premium and a Normal version of both. The normal gacha uses friend points and the highest rarities are HN and R. The premium gacha uses jewels and the highest rarity is HR and SR.

(You can change between the costume and card gacha by pressing the arrow next to “Premium”)


You can get cards from the card gacha (normal and premium). Cards give your characters experience. The more cards you get, the more experience you get and your character will level up. If you get two of the same card, it will automatically evolve. When certain cards are fully evolved a story will become available.


In the closet you can dress up your character’s avatars in different outfits. These costumes can add extra HP, strength and skills. You tap on the character that you want to change and then tap on the type of clothing you want to change. You can remove what your character is wearing by holding on the avatar on stage. There is a cost for wearing a costume and you cannot go over your total amount, but your total cost will increase as you level up. You wont be able to receive costumes if your closet is full but you will gain more slots as you level up. You can also sell costumes or buy slots in the shop. You can get costumes for the avatars in the game from the costume gacha  (normal and premium). If costume has a story it will have an icon and the story will become available in the story section.


The two options on the Quest Screen are “Area Map” And “Character Organisation Screen”.

Character Organisation Screen – View you team. The character you choose as the leader will appear on the home screen.

Area Map – This is where you battle in events and play maps to further progress in the story (by unlocking keys).

Assist – Choose a friend and their character will assist you when you play. You will both also receive friend points.

Bonuses– Before playing you can spend gold to get some bonuses.

The bonuses are:


Puzzle Battle – Battle involves matching 3 or more of the same colour spheres to create a chain. If you repeatedly form chains made up of the same colour you can build up a combo. The character with the corresponding colour attacks. The pink gauge at the top of the screen represent HP and when it hits zero it’s game over.

In the shop you can buy jewels. Also in the shop you can use jewels to buy sweets, energy, sale sets, friend slots and closet slots.

  1. This is my first time doing a game guide!! I hope it’s okay! I’m usually the sort of person who just looks up game guides (english games too) because I’m terrible at working out game systems…. So let it be know that this is not my area of expertise. Most of this is the in-game tutorial translated 🙂 That said, I will still try to help anyone that has any questions about the game. Also, if i have anything wrong or missed anything please let me know and I’ll fix it right away!

    If you need any guides for any newly released game I’ll be happy to help (as long as the game has bishounens!!)

    Thanks for reading 🙂
