battle system

Progress of the battle

In the main scenario of this work, the story progresses by clearing the battle map. The battle takes place on the battle map via the exit preparation screen and the stage map screen by selecting the “Main Story” mode in the central control room of Asterism. In the battle map, it will be cleared when the victory conditions set for each stage are met.

You can also earn experience points in the battle map where you can challenge as many times as you want by selecting “Battle Simulator” mode in the central control room.

The battle map is displayed in quarter view. Here enemy and friendly units are placed and the player can operate his own character.

When a battle with an enemy occurs, the scene changes from a bird’s eye view to a cutscene, and you can enjoy the battle with a realistic effect. If the weapon type of the ally and the enemy are the same during the battle, a special cinematic will be inserted to liven up the battle.

In addition, the battle progresses according to a system of turns, and it clears by fulfilling the victory conditions (defeating the boss and reaching a specific point) set for each stage.
