The land of Tyramus has big problems! The evil Jyn empire has stolen three of the four magic peace - keeping crystals. Grym, a Jyn Wizard, is searching for the last crystal. You have it and you're hunting him down to get back the crystals and restore peace to Tyramus. Crystal Warriors is Sega's newest Game Gear RPG. You take control of Princess Iris and up to nine of her spell - slinging, sword-swinging friends through 16 action - packed rounds of adventure role-playing fun. How you take on the Jyn forces of doom will decide if you get to be a hero - or a zero - in the land of Tyramus.
The three magic crystals are being held by Jyn Warlords. To get them back, you must defeat 16 rounds of Jyn forces. You win a round when you either wipe out all the enemy forces or capture the enemy fortress.
The best way to get through a round is to sit tight, arrange your players to protect your fortress and hang on! In most rounds at least half the enemy forces will move to attack you. Dividing the enemy makes them easier to crush. Usually the strongest enemies attack first, leaving healers and the occasional Jyn Lord to clean up.
Watch Your Elements
The crystals that kept peace in Tyramus were Earth, Fire, Wind and Water. Everybody in the game, human or not, is allied to one of the elements. Use them to your advantage. Battle an evenly matched Fighter with an element more powerful than yours and you'll take a major beating. But fight a Ranger with an element weaker than you and you'll do serious damage. Here's a way to remember which is strongest:
Here's a way to remember which is strongest:
- fight Water with Fire
- fight Wind with Water
- fight Fire with Wind
- Earth is Equal To All
Use the Scan spell before battles begin to determine the element of your attackers. You'll know what players to use first!
Mages, Healers and Iris can all sling spells. Mage spells cause a world of hurt in some very interesting ways. Healers can keep you going in the heat of battle. And Iris can use both kinds of spells. Some spells are more effective against certain elements. Match them against your enemies for maximum crush.
- Cold and Frost put the big chill on Fire characters.
- Fire and Blaze cook Wind characters into Jyn stew.
- Flash and Bolt will shock the life out of Water characters.
- Heal and Life spells restore your player's hit points.
- Drain gives you 25% of the enemy's hit points, a real life - saver in battle.
- Chant lets you give some of your magic points to another player.
- Boost makes your next attack a critical blow.
Not all of your players can use magic. Fighters and Rangers rely on strength and skill for their attacks. Just remember that when you hire them, most players will be without equipment. Outfit them as soon as you can, because you will need as many characters as you can control to beat Grym...and whatever else happens!
