Exploration Phase

Explore the level, find the elevator to the next floor. You are "safe" while in this phase

Combat Phase

When you inevitably get ambushed by monsters, you enter the combat phase. You need to eliminate all enemies to end the combat phase.

The Flow of Battle

You can move freely in battle mode, and once you have at least one action point, you can do the following:

  • Dodge: Dodging is a great way to avoid enemy attacks or to get to a safe distance and shoot!
  • Plan: Indicated by the target (2) and range (3) indicators showing and time slowing down, in this mode you can pick your targets. Don't forget to press the [Confirm] button once you picked your targets!
  • Act: Once you confirmed your plan, you then act on it! You can't control your character until all the actions are performed!

On most levels, you may come across vending machines, they can be used to acquire perks to help you in various way, but they don't come cheap! You can acquire a perk by spending 25 Health Points. Don't worry if you don't have enough, acquiring perks can't kill you!
