We carefully describe the origin, character and aspirations of each character before the artists begin to embody his image – said the developers.
The combat system in the game is presented step by step. The player begins the battle with the number of characters to 5 + 1 “from a friend.” Before the battle, information is available about the enemy unit, such as the level of enemy units and how much an attack will be expected. Unfortunately, the characters on the battlefield cannot be placed – the system does it automatically.
