General and technical info

1) What is the exact size of the app?
109 MB

2) How do you pause the game during a stage?
Tap the Pause symbol in the top-left corner of the stage screen. From the Pause menu, you can resume, exit or restart the stage.  Please note that, if you exit or restart a stage, your progress will be lost.

3) What happens when you erase a save slot from the Save menu?
If you erase a save slot, the associated profile data will be eliminated and you will be able to create a new game. You will not lose any Gems, because they are not connected to individual save files.

4) What happens if you Reset the game from the Options menu?
If you reset the game, your saved data will be lost and you will lose all the Gems you purchased too. Basically you will start the game from scratch.

5) What is the difference between Gold Coins and Gems?
You earn Gold Coins by completing quests and/or looting enemies. Then you can spend them on character upgrades. Gems allow you to obtain some powerful items and weapons or access advanced stages earlier on in the game. They also allow you to acquire rare tokens needed to use special Summons. You start the game with a small amount of bonus Gems, but they are not easily found in the game world - you may get some through special achievements or in-app purchases though.

Gameplay Info

1) Who is the Brave Hero?
The most powerful character available, the Hero leads the whole Party onwards and can access a set of Brave Powers, inherited from his Companions.

2) What is a Party?
A party is a group of adventurers. It may include the Hero and up to 3 Companions, but not more than 1 Companion per role. Damage to any party member will result in a Bravery loss.

3) What is Bravery?
Bravery is what makes you a Hero. It is earned by helping people and lost by taking damage. When the Bravery Bar reaches zero, it is Game Over.

4) Who are the non-playing characters who keep waving and calling out, with a balloon on their heads?
They are Citizens of Geomnia. Citizens are common folks in dire need of help and the Brave Hero can assist them by accepting and completing their quests.

5) What are Quests?
Citizens charge the Brave Hero with different tasks, such as defeating enemies or collecting items. Completing such Quests grants you Bravery, Valor and Gold Coins.

6) What is a Quest Rush?
Quests have a timer and, by completing them within such time limit, the Brave Hero achieves a 'Quest Rush'. Quest Rush bonuses grant more Valor and Bravery.

7) What are Heroic Quests?
A Brave Hero rushing at Bravery Level 3 can activate 'Heroic' versions of normal Quests. Heroic Quests are harder but reward the Hero with much more Valor.

8) What is Valor?
By running through stages, defeating monsters and saving the day, the Hero earns Valor points, his most important achievement.

9) What is a Tank?
Tank characters stand as a shield to the Brave Hero, blocking close-range attacks in his stead. They are less effective as damage dealers, though.

10) What is an Attacker?
Attackers are able to hit enemies hard, from a distance. They are great when it comes to dealing damage, but they are more vulnerable.

11) What is a Supporter?
Supporters can restore lost Bravery with their healing powers. Sadly, they are vulnerable to direct damage because of their low defense.

12) What about Combat Edges?
All characters and monsters have their edge - Physical, Magical or Balanced - indicating their combat style. Edges make quite the difference on the battlefield.

13) How does the Edge System work?
Physical attacks are strong against physical defenses, but weak against magical ones. Magic spells are strong against magical targets, but less effective against physical armor. Balanced characters have no strong nor weak points. That means they are never at a disadvantage but never have the upper hand, either.

14) What is a Unity Bonus?
Each Class grants the party a unique bonus, referred to as 'Unity Bonus'. Such bonuses are always active as long as the Companions are alive and well.

15) What about this Legendary Scarf?
A legendary artifact allowing the Brave Hero to inherit unique skills from the Companions joining him. A new Brave Power can be learned from each class.

16) What is a Brave Power?
Brave Powers have different effects, such as direct damage or power-ups. The Brave Hero can choose any of the Class Skills he has unlocked.

17) How do Upgrades work?
By spending Gold Coins, the Brave Hero and his Companions can train to improve their traits and level up. Upgrades are permanent and each character follows his/her own upgrade path.

18) What is an Arcane Summon?
The Brave Hero can call forth supernatural beings to unleash their mighty powers, by consuming a magical token each time he performs an arcane summon. Such tokens can only be acquired with Gems.

19) What are Gems?
While Gold Coins are the commoners' trade, Gems represent a very special currency, giving you access to amazing wonders.

20) What is the Vault?
On their perilous journey, the party may stumble upon rare, invaluable findings, which are stored in the Vault. Once unlocked, they don't need to be equipped, as they will permanently add their bonuses to a specific class, or the whole party.

    • If a stage feels too difficult, upgrade your characters. Upgrades are key! Do not face harder stages without first upgrading.
    • Each Companion follows his/her own upgrade path.
