Both these mangas focus on gamification of life in their own styles and both are quite good having a single main character fighting his way to the top.

Jemo Jemo says...

Very simular in alot of ways both taking a videogame like power main character and both mcs have powers that are completlety op and unfair.

They both have a since of a mmo like leveling system and they are both badass. Period... I mean what else is there to say about it.

iLive4Anime iLive4Anime says...

They really are similar in the fact that they both have the ability as a "gamer". I am currently up to datw with both and manga and webtoon and they both are really good. Even though The Gamer is more like on the light side of things and Solo is more on the mature bloody side, but I love it so much.

They are the same

Yes, the same

kearma kearma says...

Same sort of concept where semi normal human gain game like abilities. With leveling skills and other concepts 

hinkil hinkil says...

both are zero to hero by a unique game leveling power                                                              

Shizukrn Shizukrn says...

I agree

but one thing that i don't like in this manhwa, well it's about the main character and the others character, i dont like that the gamer can give others the same power as his power, it makes it boring

cruzzzzz cruzzzzz says...

It's the same concept between both; the main character gains video game-like upgrading abilities and grow stronger as the series goes on.

yes I agree                                                                                                                                 

TheClockIsTicking TheClockIsTicking says...

Its nearly the same. But with good character development than Solo leveling. Iam not ralking about main characters. World developing is weak in both of them. Also MC is Rich. Both are OP and have game menu. I recommend this 

othab othab says...

both have the game like interface that grants them op abilities copmared to the others around them causing both mcs to standout from the rest of the people in their relative worlds.

Humice Humice says...

They are both about introverts that turn their lives into games and level up. If you like the idea of people being represented with levels, quests, and so on give either a read. They're both full color and game themed.

zno zno says...

Both of them have the same theme (life becoming a game (or the other way)) but DICE do it a more serious way whereas the gamer take the road of complete fun.

Plus, both are webtoons.

orca orca says...

Different Interpretations of roughly the same theme. The idea of life as a game and earned skill points contibuting towards the characters' attributes.

The Gamer is very MMO or RPG in nature and (atleast so far) quite light hearted.

DICE is more serious in nature, especially with the theme of high school bullying.

RoyalOss RoyalOss says...

The Gamer is about a boy gaining powers like he is in a video game. While he has fun grinding his powers he is also training to become stronger to protect hisself.

The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor is about a boy who is great in a game and decides to sell his game character off for A LOT of money. Unfortunally loan sharks get away with his money so he enters a new virtual reality game to become the best and sell his account off again.

Despite the different settings both have the same gaming aspects, both trying to learn everything about their powers and both trying to become stronger by leveling up and training their skills. Legendary Moonlight starts out pretty serious but once he enters the game the atmosphere is light and funny just as with The Gamer.

HatsOffToAll HatsOffToAll says...

These two are very alike. The only real difference is that in 'The Gamer' the rpg characteristics are integrated into the main characters life whereas in the 'Legendary Moonlight Sculptor' it's a game he plays to try and earn money to get him familly out of debt. Both books have dungeons, monsters, levels and friends that they party with. I strongly reccomend this book if you liked 'The Gamer'.

RazielRMA RazielRMA says...

These two seem very similar to eachother even though they are very different stories. I'm looking forward to how the legendary moonlight sculptor plays out. Wish they wouldn't draw it out quite so much.

MyBoiLuffy MyBoiLuffy says...

Both these were written by the same person. They both have leveling, game systems etc.

**SPOILER WARNING**  KIND OF. Technically Life Howling is sort of before The Gamer, and it is a commonly accepted theory that the mc in Life Howling is the harem king in The Gamer.

Overlord (Light Novel)

Overlord (Light Novel)

For twelve years, the virtual world of Yggdrasil has served as the playground and battlefield for the skeletal lord Momonga and his guild of fellow monsters, Ainz Ooal Gown. But the guild's glory days are over, and the game is shutting down permanently. When Momonga logs in one last time just to be there when the servers go dark, something happens--and suddenly, fantasy is reality. A rogues' gallery of fanatically devoted NPCs is ready to obey his every order, but the world Momonga now inhabits is not the one he remembers. The game may be over, but the epic tale of Ainz Ooal Gown is only beginning...

johan740 johan740 says...

Both are very simililar, overlord is a gamer who enter a new world with his game character and The gamer is a gamer who becomes a game character and startts at level 1.

if u like one, u might like the other.And if u like overlord then u can read the novel witch is awsome.

Chairrypie Chairrypie says...

Both are somehow related to the game theme and have MCs with some sort of OP skill/ability. In the case of the Gamer it's his gamer ability while in overlord, all his skills are pretty much more powerful compared to anyone else in the series.

Tower of God

Tower of God

Fame. Glory. Power. Anything in your wildest dreams is possible when you reach the top of the Tower of God. Those lucky enough to be chosen by the tower ascend each floor in hopes of fulfilling their dreams, but to succeed, they must complete dangerous and deadly tests along the way. But there are others who can enter the structure on their own free will; these "irregulars" are feared by many and are said to leave chaos and change in their wake. Twenty-Fifth Baam is one such irregular who begins to climb the Tower of God in hopes of reuniting with his childhood friend Rachel, but as he soon discovers, this perilous path will put him in the crosshairs of fierce competitors, untrustworthy rivals and terrifying monsters, and he might not make it out alive...

asfjklfasdjklfs asfjklfasdjklfs says...

The gamer and tower of god are both manwha hosted on the well known Korean website naver.com. They both have a similar "webtoon" art syle. Both have a sense of adventure and magic. Tower of God has more nuance in the plot and relationships of characters, and the gamer is more funny. The gamer can get a little repetitive, whereas tower of god's pacing always seems like there is something major going on. Both are great mawha and a lot of fun, although Tower of God is better written.

ADM356 ADM356 says...

Both are similar in having underpowered, un-matured protagonists that would turn their lives and selves around 180 degree

Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

Bell Cranel is just trying to find his way in the world. Of course, in his case, the “world” is an enormous dungeon filled with monsters, below a city run by gods and goddesses who have way too much time on their hands. He’s got big dreams but not much more when a roll on the random encounter table brings him face-to-face with the girl of his dreams – but what’s a beginning adventurer have to offer a brilliant swordswoman? And what if the lonely goddess who sponsors his solo adventuring gets jealous…?!

-Both have labyrinths

-Both have leveling systems

-Both have strong protagonists who get stronger much faster than those around them

-Both have strong female side characters, at some points stronger than mc

-Similar comedy style

-Same author, and the character Berial appears in both, which makes me think they share a universe.
