Gameplay[edit]

Roaming and static enemy positions are made visible in the world as a set of paw prints. Fights take place in an enclosed area where the player must shoot the enemies until they are eliminated. Traditional RPG elements include the collection of experience points and money by defeating monsters, increasing hit points and esper points (magic) through level raises, and purchasing better equipment from towns located deeper in the game.
