At the beginning of the game you'll have to choose between one of the two opposing sides: the good guys and the bad guys. In the first group you'll find a noble knight, an old magician, and a healer girl; while the other side has a dark warrior, a dark sorcerer, and a jester.
Combat is turn-based and set on a scenario that is divided into squares. Each character can use a certain number of action points which can be split between his movements and attacks. For example, you could make a character not move and invoke three spells instead, or just make him move a lot.
Before every battle you'll have to enlist the units you want to participate in it. You can choose if you want to take more knights than magicians, or more healers, etc. It’s all up to you.
