THE iDOLM@STER SHINY COLORS (アイドルマスター シャイニーカラーズ Aidorumasutaa Shainii Karaazu) or "Shinymas" (シャニマス) for short, is an training simulation browser game. The game adopts BXD's HTML5 new platform and is hosted by enza, a new social platform made by Bandai Namco Entertainment.
In Shiny Colors, the player takes the role of a producer at 283 Production and manages 23 idols from six units: illumination STARS, L'Antica, ALSTROEMERIA and Houkago Climax Girls. For the first anniversary of the game, a fifth unit was added: Straylight. For the second anniversary of the game, a sixth unit was added: noctchill.
The game has a system similar to THE IDOLM@STER console games. The main gameplay includes lessons, auditions, and a story with visual novel elements. Different options will lead to different intimacy levels with an idol, eventually affecting the idol's tension level.
In a general approach of the game, the player organizes idol units with produce and support idol cards, and trains the set idol in the produce part of the game. When production is finished, a fes card is created. With these cards it's possible to form units and compete in "fes".
The gacha is used to scout for new idols. Feather jewels are used to scout, scouting one time costs 300, and 10 times costs 3000. In a 10 scout, the tenth card in the scout is a guaranteed SR card. It is also possible to use enza points to scout.
Support cards can be trained to raise stats. New skills are released with training and special training, which is advantageous in producing.
There are daily and weekly missions featuring feather jewels and other rewards.
There is currently two produce modes, W.I.N.G (Wonder.Idol.Nova.Grandprix) and Thanks Flapping Day (TFD), to unlock the other produce mode, you need to produce an idol that has cleared at least the second season once.
In W.I.N.G mode, the player and their produce idol aims to win the W.I.N.G festival. It is divided in four seasons, and if the required amount of fans for that season is not reached, the run will end. If the requirement is cleared there will a W.I.N.G preliminary at the 4th season, and then the final. The true end depends on the idol card rarity.
The produced idol will become a Fes card, but the original card will not disappear, you can produce it repeatedly.
A unit can be form with Fes cards and compete with other idols at Fes. The unit is organized by Center, Vocal, Dance, Visual and Leader positions. Money is obtained with your fes evaluation and can be used to buy items. Event points can also be used to buy.
