Pokemon Alpha Sapphire is a yet another installment in one of the most popular video game series in the history. Unlike Pokemon X and Pokemon Y published a year before, the game is not an entirely new title, but rather a remake of the classic Pokemon Ruby released in 2003 for Game Boy Advanced.


Pokemon Sapphire along with Pokemon Ruby were the first installments in the series to be available on this platform. They did not introduce any revolutionary solutions, but rather a number of small improvements to the formulaic gameplay model. Apart from the dozens of Pocket Monsters the player has to catch, they can also use the new pieces of equipment as well as pokeballs, participate in 2 vs. 2 fights, and compete in multiple competitions.


Pokemon Alpha Sapphire utilizes dozens of solutions implemented by its successors. The most prominent one being the 3D graphics engine designed for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, allowing players to see the locations from an entirely new perspective. Also the Pokemons get a new life, as they are no longer in the form of 2D illustrations, rather fully animated 3D models. The gameplay model, on the other hand, did not change much, as it still comprises multiple arcade elements, in-game world exploration, interactions with NPCs, fighting other trainers, and catching all the Pokemons.
