Hi, welcome to this post, We hope you find this Idol Showdown – Basic Gameplay And Controls guide useful.

This guide is intended for new players who wish to participate in the game.

Chapter 1: Booting up the game.

Okay, so I’m guessing you’re a Hololive fan correct?

So at least you know how to play games?

If you said no then that’s a skill issue, luckily this guide is here to “guide” you.

If you said yes then good for you.

So now for the step-by-step guide to show you what to do.

Step 1: Wait for the logos to be finished. (You can hit a key if you want to skip them)

Step 2: Do you see the text saying “Press any key to continue”? Well you’re now in the title screen, and pressing any key in your keyboard will send you to the main menu.

Step 3: Once you’re in the main menu, you will see 6 buttons to select using the WASD keys rather than the arrow keys. You will have to get used to this quirky thing after playing Holocure, which uses the arrow keys.

Step 4: Select “Training”

Step 5: You will see 3 options: Training Room, Tutorial, and Command list. Select “Tutorial”

Step 6: You will now be in a menu with many options. Just choose “Basic Movement” and move on.

Step 7: Since this is a guide and I’m a crazy person, I will put the ENTIRE TUTORIAL on the next chapter.
