JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Shooters (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 スターダストシューターズ JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken Sutādasuto Shūtāzu) is a free IOS/Android game released in 2014 exclusively for Japan. The game is a mobile spin-off of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle and focuses on the first three parts of the series: Phantom Blood , Battle Tendency, and Stardust Crusaders. As of December 2015, Diamond is Unbreakable elements have been added to the game.
The game uses the touchscreen as the main form of interaction, allowing the player to input commands using their fingers. Combat against enemies is done using Medal, particularly "Striker" Medals, each of which represents one character and their ability set. Like some card battler games, players must take into account a medal's available health and special attacks as well as take advantage of combo systems that will chain stronger attacks together.
Medal Strikers also possess different colors, each color has an advantage and a disadvantage over specific others (Red has an advantage over Green, Green over Blue, and Blue over Red. Yellow and Black Strikers have advantages and disadvantages against each other).
In addition to battle segments, Stardust Shooters includes animated sequences and character models featuring the entire JoJo cast from all three parts.
