Games[edit | edit source]
Mobage[edit | edit source]
SideM's first game is run on Mobage, a mobile gaming platform. It has similar gameplay to Cinderella Girls and Million Live! in that the basics of the game revolves around regenerating stamina and social elements. Idols in SideM are represented by trading cards of three different rarities— Normal, Rare, and Super Rare, each with a Unchanged and Changed (+) version.
The Mobage can be played in both the mobile browser, on a mobile app, or on a computer through AndApp.
LIVE ON ST@GE![edit | edit source]
LIVE ON ST@GE!, often shorted to LOS, MSute, or MStage, was announced at the 2nd Live concert as another mobile game. It was later released on August 30th, 2017. Like the SideM Mobage game, it revolves around collecting cards. However, there are less social elements in that players cannot contact other players or trade cards. It has an additional rhythm game and MV section where the player can watch the idols perform in the songs.
LOS can be played on most mobile devices.
