Escaping before being completely controlled, they help the heroes of Earth in battling the threats that have mysteriously joined forces with the organization.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The game plays much like an old styled strategy game, such as Fire Emblem or earlier versions of Super Robot Wars. The player and the enemy takes turn to move their units on the battlefield.

JOYSTICK SETUP[edit | edit source]

  • Circle (O) - Select (If pressed on a unit will show the unit's Command List, and if pressed on an empty square will show Game Options)
  • Cross (×) - Cancel (If pressed on an empty square will show the square's information)
  • Note : The Square Information shows the Defense Percentage and Hit Rate Percentage affected by the terrain. This is important. Position the units in an advantageous terrain.
  • Square (■) - Show Map
  • Triangle (▲) - Speed up Cursor
  • Start (►) - Game Options
  • Select (▬) - Nothing
  • R1/L1 - Next/Previous Friendly Unit
  • R2/L2 - Next/Previous Enemy Unit
  • R1+R2+L1+L2+Select+Start - Soft Reset.

ATTACKING AND DEFENDING[edit | edit source]

The battle screen will show up whether the unit is attacking or defending. The top most screen shows the amount of HP and Energy both the enemy unit's and player unit's info. Once the HP reaches 0, the unit is destroyed.

Destroyed Heroes and Soldiers don't cost a thing. However, a destroyed Tank (that has been produced in a factory) will be lost, and that unit has to be produced again. When being attacked, this option will be shown. The options are :

  1. Commence Sequence
  2. Choose Weapon
  3. Dodge
  4. Block

Pressing the Circle button at the Commence Sequence option will continue the attack normally.

However, pressing the Square button will skip the battle animation (Good when fighting non-interesting enemies). This is also applicable when attacking.
