> you must protect the dragons by using your bonded animals to defend the dragons agianst the wizard.
Instead of simply standing still and attacking when the time-bar fills the players can also move around a 3d arena. PP points are replaced with a stamina bar with all moves(attacks/movement) having a "stamina cost" to preform. when the time bar is full the players animals stamina bar will slowly refill. This way faster animals can attack move often and also adds that tactical issue of trying to tire out your enemy by moving around and dodging attacks having the waste the stamina points.
Players would have to chose to specialise in a certain element, giving animals of this element bonuses when used by the player and give penalties to animals of the opposing element, eg. if fire element specialist all fire element animals you use get +5 stength whereas water and ice animals get -5 strength. Also certain elements have diffent styles of play such as the different element in the magic the gathering card game(fire = strength, water = control/manipulation, earth = defence).
Please tell me what you think of the concepts. Anything you would do different? or add?
Has anyone here played Pokemon? I''ve almost played the game all the way through and can say that it was not worth the time I''ve invested in it. The game had a couple of major problems;
- No boss or enemy!!! (o.k there was team rocket But we don''t even get rid of them)
- element system was useful early on, but towards the end of the game lost all value. (eg. grass, fire pokemon)
- out of all 152 pokemon only 10 where realy worth using battle, expesically against human apponents.
- Sleep status attacks far to dangerous
- the fastest pokemon could only attack as often as the slowest, and because the slower pokemon were
But I thought as a concept, the game had promise. Imagine the game set in a mixed medieval/Sci-fi setting, where animals are still the main form of transport but there are computers and robots. Combat is handled in a modified FF7 combat system. The story could be the normal RPG fair eg. evil wizard is rounding up the 13 golden dragons to steal the powers and obtain godhood. As a member of<
