There are several genres of game that I always love to play. One of genre that I love the most is turn based strategy game. Games like FF Tactics, Great Big War Game, Skulls of the Dragon, and XCOM Enemy Unknown are some of many fantastic turn-based games in iOS ecosystem.
Together with his own game developer Mistwalker, Final Fantasy’s creator Hironobu Sakaguchi released a puzzle RPG that comes with a turn-based strategy genre, Terra Battle. There is no limit when we’re talking about this guy. From becoming director of the first Final Fantasy until the fifth, until becoming the director of its movie Final Fantasy: The Spirit Within.
You will be handed with a team of six characters (you will get this by purchasing packs in the tavern). Together with this team you will be adventuring in various chapter of the stories. Well actually the story is nowhere near awesome, but you’ll get the real gem in the game soon.
Like many freemium game would be, the game also use so-called “stamina” to join the battle. Once you run out of stamina, you have to wait for several minutes to be able to do some battle again.
All of it seems so simple until you enter the battle mode. When the tutorial shows up, make sure you really understand what it’s all talking about. Even if you miss a part of it, let me help you to understand the battle system.
You will be facing 8x6 grid where all our characters and enemies are spread around the spaces. Number in the enemy cards meaning the number of turn before it starts to attack you. To attack the enemies, you have make sure two of your characters are flanked on both sides of the enemies.
Each turn, you’ll have some time to move around just one of your characters. This what makes the game so much fun to play with. You really have to count your move before start moving your characters. Once you move your character, the timer starts, and once the timer runs out, your character will drop into the square and your turn is done.
