A tactical role-playing game (abbreviated as TRPG; sometimes referred to as strategy role-playing game, or SRPG) is a type of video game which incorporates elements of traditional role-playing video games and strategy games. In Japan these games are known as “Simulation RPGs”. Like standard RPGs, the player controls a finite party and battles a similar number of enemies. And like other RPGs, death is usually temporary. But this genre incorporates strategic gameplay such as tactical movement on an isometric grid.

Zoids is a multi-media model-kit-based franchise originating from Japanese toy company Tomy (now Takara-Tomy); though now produced by various companies through licenses. The majority of the franchise is built around and focused on the various model kit series. The franchise has expanded from strictly motorized model kits to highly detailed and posable model kits, action figures and even PVC figurines. The various anime series, comics, manga books and video games all serve as tie-in media products for the franchise, to expand both consumer base and franchise recognition.

Zoids are fictional mechanical life-forms, found on the planet Zi. A Zoid is essentially a mechanical animal formed around a techno-organic ‘core’ (known as a “Zoid Core”), which serves as its heart and mind. The Core is considered to be ‘alive’, making the Zoid a living creature. Otherwise, its body is an artificial mechanical construct like any other mecha.

ZoidsZenebus-01bBeginning fairly early after the start of the original Japanese Zoid releases, the battle story first introduced the conflict between two rival nations: the Helic Republic and Zenebas Empire. Their main weapons were Zoids, living war machines built from metal-based lifeforms native to planet Zi. The Zenebas Zoids were mostly red and silver and more armored, the Helic more skeletal and favoring blue and grey.

Zoids – Zenebus vs Heric (aka Zoids – Teikoku vs Kyouwakoku – Mecha Seita no Idenshi) is a tactical RPG. The player can chose to play as either the Helic Republic or the Zenebas Empire. The Helic side is the “easy” mode, as the player starts out with a unit of One Godos, whereas the Zenebas side gives him a unit with an Iguan, Molga, Merda and Gator.
The game is divided into different missions that the player has to complete. When a mission is completed, more Zoids are unlocked and can be bought and be added to the player units.
In the gameplay when the player confronts an enemy on the field, the game starts up a turn-base 3DCG battle between the two Zoids. If the players character runs out of EP, it can’t attack.

Joshua’s day started out simple enough. Climb up on a roof to catch a butterfly for Adele. Once he actually catches it, he promptly falls off the roof. That would be the beginning of the end. His stepsister Rosaly comes running over to say a stranger is being attacked in the field. With the help of his two friends Yuri and Clive, they save the stranger and bring him back to the village so the doctor can treat his wounds. Little do they know, this act of kindness will change their lives forever, for this is no ordinary stranger.

vandalhearts-02dThe stranger, Nicola, is not what he appears to be but Joshua sees him as a hero and wants to help him. Since Nicola is a wanted man being hunted by the relentless Blood Knights, Joshua hides him in his secret tree house. Unfortunately, his stepfather sees Nicola as a troublemaker for bringing the Blood Knights to the village, and thus turns him in. Furious, Joshua sets off to the mayor’s manor to save Nicola.

Wandering through the manor, Joshua makes a wrong turn and finds that he is trapped in a room with the kindly old mayor. Suddenly the court diviner teleports into the room and puts the mayor into a murderous rage. Joshua is forced to fight the mayor and slays him in front of the very eyes of the only woman he will ever love, Adele. After she sees him kill her grandfather, she denounces him and calls for the guards to arrest him. Joshua jumps through a window into the waiting current of the river. He must leave his family, his town and the woman he loves, in hopes of clearing his name and winning back Adele.

As a result of his actions, the country of Natra becomes embroiled in a Civil War that has gone on for seven years, and which still continues. Finally Joshua, now 20, resurfaces as leader of the Red Wolves, a group of bandits that have stricken terror into the hearts of both sides of the Civil War. They only attack military cargoes and people, and have yet to be defeated or captured. They know no allegiance and have no country. They just have each other, but that too will change.

You assume the role of Ash Lambert, a hero torn between saving his country and restoring honor to the disgraced Lambert dynasty. As he struggles with his inner demons and personal problems, he will meet various companions throughout his journey. They will help your character fight to overthrow the oppressive regime and ward off an ancient being that threatens the world.

vandalhearts-01eVandal-Hearts is a 3D turn-based strategy game. Unlike many games of the genre, the various battlefields have sloped surfaces that will either work to your advantage or against you. It will be up to you to accommodate your strategy and amount an appropriate offensive assault against your foes as well as set up defensive measures.

Each character raises experience the more he or she moves and kills. Experience points result in your character becoming stronger and increases his or her overall level. Level increases usually allow your characters to move greater distances on the battlefield, wield new weapons and use new magical spells. When a character reaches a specific level, they can visit a town’s Dojo — an area of training and class upgrading.

Class upgrading is an important aspect of Vandal-Hearts — it allows your characters to become more advanced and stronger. For example, a hero can upgrade to a champion and eventually a paragon. A soldier can turn into a swordsman (a sword fighter) or a guardsman (a strong person with great armor). He can then choose to become a duelist or a dragoon depending on what you chose previous. Except for your hero (Ash), each character is given a wide variety of upgrades and classes. Continue reading ‘Vandal Hearts 1, Ushinawareta Kodai Bunmei, (SLPM-86007)’ »
