Equip All Your Characters

The game doesn’t teach you this in the brief tutorial, but you need to merge and equip all of your characters. How do you do that? Well, you need to tap on the character on the top of the screen to switch to a different merge board.

When you’ve done that you can produce new items that you can equip to the different characters. Strengthen up all of your characters and you’ll find that the game is an awful lot easier.

Check Your MP

You need MP to produce new items to merge. You can see how much MP you’ve got in the blue vial on the right of the screen. If you don’t have enough you can refill it by tapping. You only get a few of these refills, so use them sensibly.

Without MP you can still merge the items that are on screen, you just can’t add any more. Be smart about what you’re doing and you’ll soon find that you’re going to get a better feel for the experience.

Use Your Special Moves

Each of your characters have special moves. You’ll see when they’re charged up, even if you’re not on their screen, because a circle will flash up around them. Special moves can deal damage and they can also heal your characters.

Don’t waste your special moves – if there aren’t any enemies on the screen then don’t smash out an attack because it won’t do any good. Healing when you get the chance is a great idea though.

Check Which Equipment Is Better

When you merge new equipment, it has different stats. Tap on the piece of equipment and you’ll be able to compare it with what you’ve already got equipped. See which is best and replace what you’ve got if necessary.

You’ll get the piece you’ve not used back in your merging screen, so you’ll be able to combine it to make something new. Always check whether what you’ve just made is stronger than what you’ve already got.
