Running around in a dungeon, looting chests, killing orks and goblins; this is but a normal day in the life of a Jack. Being a rogue, a mage or a knight seems fun at first, but it gets boring quite fast...
Well, how about a way to spice things up for a change ? What if every single of your actions was a polar choice, either do it or don't ? What if your life could only be controlled by agreeing or denying to a sequence of actions that goes around right before your eyes ?
Reach the end, it only requires a single fingertip.
Welcome to Jaded Jacks !
How to play: Exploration phase
During the exploration phase, holding down a key will make you move in the direction pointed by the arrow circling your character.
Items are automatically picked up and used if using it would not result in wasting its effects.
To open up golden chests, you will need a golden key.
To open up doors, you will need a blue key.
To open up red doors, you will need a red key.
How to play: Battle phase
Battles are turn-based, but choosing a skill to perform is a time-based action.
When it is your character's turn to play, press any button to start filling the casting gauge at the bottom-left of your screen. Holding any button down while the gage fills past a bar will mark a DOWN input, while not holding anything will mark an UP input.
Once a skill has been selected, an arrow will start pointing toward the potential targets of your skill. Simply press the button when the arrow is in front of the desired target.
The bottom-right of the battle screen displays the skill available for the current character. Try matching them to execute a skill!
Items and their effects
There are three types of items you can stumble upon.
- Equipments are associated with each of your player's characters and will provide a boost in one of four stats: attack, defence, magic or speed. They will also boost your maximum health and mana by a small amount.
- Regenerative items can either heal you or restore part of your mana. IF a character's health or mana is already at its maximum, it will increase a little bit. Finding a phoenix's feather will bring your defeated allies back to your party, even stronger than before!
- Keys are used to unlock chests and doors. Each colour of key unlocks a different set of things.
