The objective of the game is to proceed through the story, and eventually reach the "Super Happy Ending". Love passes are required to continue reading the story. Five are usually given free everyday, but the player can purchase more. Two obstacles have to be passed in order to proceed, "Princess degree check" and "Dress code check".[6] Princess degree is acquired through winning a "Princess Battle", greeting other players, or by spending diamonds.[7] The player has two options, "Normal" and "Special" to pass the dress code check. The Special route always cost diamonds, which can be purchased in the game.[8] The player can also play the mini-game, "Gacha" to win clothing or room items. Various events are held monthly, where users can read limited time stories.

Items can also be purchased for the player's avatar and room. Purchasing such items usually helps the player continue on through the story.[9] Two limited avatar items were available with a serial code provided in the first volume of Boys Over Flowers Season 2 and the No. 16 and 17 issue of Margaret in 2015.[10][11] Various digital items related to Hana Yori Dango: The Musical were released in the game for a limited time during January 2016.[12]


The mother of the player's character dies and she meets her millionaire father, Kyoya Shinomiya (篠宮 恭哉 () ) for the first time. She moves into her father's mansion, where Takumi Kiritani works as a butler. She attends Eitoku Academy and becomes a target of the F4. Tsukushi Makino befriends the player's character at this point.[13]

The player initially had the choice of four routes, Tsukasa Domyoji, Rui Hanazawa, Sojiro Nishikado, and Akira Mimasaka. Kiritani, the character's butler, was released in September[14] followed by Kodai Sawashiro, a friend of the player's character, in November 2015.[15][16] Four new love interests, called the S4, were later introduced.[17] The new characters were all designed by Yoko Kamio.[18]


The icon of the game featured Tsukasa Domyoji from July 2015 until the update in late November.[19] It was changed to Sojiro Nishikado on Android and Google Play, and Rui Hanazawa on iOS and Mobage to reflect the Christmas season as well as Sojiro's birthday on December 3. After Sojiro's birthday event, the icon was changed to Rui Hanazawa on Android and Google Play also. On February 22, 2016, the icon was changed to Akira Mimasaka for his birthday event. It was changed again in May 2016 to Sojiro. The icon pictured Rui and Tsukasa from June 2016 to June 2017. The last icon of the app featured chibi versions of the F4 celebrating.
