If you use Facebook, chances are you’ve seen an advertisement for a game called “Love Nikki.” There’s probably a drawing of a girl with long, gorgeous pink hair (hair goals, anyone) next to a funky-lookin’ cat sidekick. You may have downloaded it: It’s called Love Nikki.

It doesn’t yet have its own Wikipedia page, but I imagine that soon enough, it will. At first glance, Love Nikki looks like a simple, casual game for young girls to play when they get bored. In fact, you might think it looks kind of dull.

DON’T. BE. FOOLED. Love Nikki is seriously addicting and seriously in-depth. I swear. It has a ton of content, an amazing PvP experience, and the ability to compete with players from around the world. You can get ranked among players from Cambodia, the United States, and even Indonesia! The game was released on English-language servers by Elex, though different countries have different translations. Considering it was released on April 20th this year, it’s pretty impressive that it’s booming so quickly. So, what makes it so addicting?

In Nikki, people are actually willing to spend money. You can customize every aspect of your appearance–from your hair to your dress to your coat to your shoes to your shoes and even makeup. Most people are drawn because of the competition aspect: you can battle worldwide to create an outfit that best matches a certain theme. People will vote on your outfit, and if it’s good enough, you can rise to number 1 and get rewards. Or you can play through the story mode to help collect clothes. All the clothes you earn will have different points and attributes: some are cute, some are elegant, and some are sexy. In story mode, you’re tasked with designing outfits that best match the requirements. The higher your points are the higher your ranking. You can get an S, A, B, C, or F rank on each level, with S being the best.

There are two different competitive stages in Love Nikki. The first is the Stylist’s Arena, which is 1v1. You and another player are assigned a theme and choose outfits based on how well you think they’ll meet the theme. Then, you’ll be given points. The person with the most points at the end of the battle will win! The second battle mode is the Competition. A theme is released worldwide–this is the one I was talking about before, where you can design your outfit, and other people can vote. One of my friends actually got ranked #1 a few weeks ago, which is pretty crazy. This same friend has also won the Stylist’s Arena over 400 times IN A ROW.

I think we can all admit at this point that “collect-them-all” games are insanely popular. Maybe that’s what’s so amazing about Love Nikki. You can collect clothes and create a “set,” which is basically a special outfit. For example, maybe an event launches that’s called “The Joker.” During this event, a special stage is released. You can play the special stage and get points that you can then use to purchase the outfit in-game. If you can complete the set, you’ll often get extra points and in-game currency. Since these events only last about 3 days, everyone goes crazy trying to finish the set before the deadline.

Once you get adequately addicted, you’ll probably consider buying the premium in-game currency. It can be used to add your stamina (so you can complete more levels) or to get premium clothes, which usually have better stats. You technically don’t need to pay anything at all to rank high–on one of my first attempts at the Competition, I ranked within the top 5% without purchasing anything. But it gets so so so tempting because YOU JUST WANT TO WIN. URGH.

Okay, so here are my final words on Love Nikki. If you are interested in a fresh game that puts a creative twist on dressing up, or if you (like me) loved playing online dress-up games when you were younger, then this would probably be an excellent game for you and you will probably hate me for talking about it and introducing it to you and GETTING YOU ABOARD THE I LOVE LOVE NIKKI TRAIN. Seriously. Even some of my guy friends have started playing it.

Anyways, tell me your thoughts in the comments–does this seem like a game you’d love to try out? Have you heard about it before? Or maybe you’ve already heard about it and have been playing it for a few months. Either way, I’d love to hear what you think!

    I definitely would like to try out this game because I love dress ups! I like the option that I can change my appearance though I have to pay for it, It’s worth it since in the competition I do not like to look like my opponent.
