The campaign tells of adventures of two knights, Rain and Lasswell, who become the last line of defense from apocalypse. They are quickly joined by other brave heroes.
Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius for AND and iOS is a Japanese RPG. At the core of the game are turn-based battles during which we command a several-people party of heroes. In combat, they help each other with the use of numerous special abilities and an extensive magic system, combining attacks between themselves into powerful combinations, and summoning beasts that obey them.
Outside combat, we explore the world, including several cities, have conversations, and visit stores. In these sections, we also decide about what missions we want to take on. Most adventures require us to win a series of fights against groups of enemies and then to defeat a powerful boss.
Up to six heroes can go into battle but the player can assemble a much larger collection of characters, many of whom appeared in previous Final Fantasy games. It lets us choose heroes suitable for a given task by taking into account their strengths and weaknesses. Of course, as befits an RPG, all fighters can be developed as well as equipped with increasingly better weapons and armor.
The production was designed with mobile devices in mind therefore adventures are pretty short and battles are incredibly fast-paced. Therefore, even having completed a several-minute session we have a feeling that we achieved something.
