How To Play

Fight 3 Round Battles with 4 Opponents; and then a 5 Round Battle with the Final Opponent. Each Round you choose an Attack and an Elemental Focus to power it.
CLAW HAMMER beats Body Slam / BODY SLAM beats Double Snip / DOUBLE SNIP beats Claw Hammer
FIRE consumes Air / WATER puts out Fire / EARTH soaks up Water / AIR blows away Earth
A Color-Coded Bar shows the results between the Attacks and Focuses: Green = Win; Yellow = Draw; Red = Lose
Your Attack determines who Wins the Round; the Elemental Focus determines how much Damage you will take and how many Power Points you will gain. Your Wins and Losses at the end of each Battle determine whether you advance or go down in flames.

Player Comments

That was pretty good.

Tons of choices, weird but unique and interesting story, and an impressive battle system. Though it is very strange it's also very fun to play and keeps the player entertained for a long time.

The only I would suggest is to have a little more hints for the player to choose from so he/she is not just picking moves at random. Also, when the crabs battle it wouldn't to put a little commentary in just to keep things fresh.(Like in sports with announcers.)

Nice job.

This was absolutely amazing! While some of the pictures and power-ups could have used some tweaking and re-placing, this was all-in-all a very enjoyable storygame!

Seriously, the creativity and use of variables and scripting is remarkable! 8/8 for sure!

You call that a trek through the forest!? I can't get the hang of this game! Doesn't mean I don't like it - in fact, it's strangely awesome and I like the RPG elements a lot. I guess I'm just not good at rock-paper-scissors...

EASY! I only need one powerup to win :)

I enjoyed this quite a bit! The one criticism I have is that unused items don't carry over between battles. Otherwise the battle system is well done and there is an element of strategy to it that isn't apparent at first.

I really liked this game! It's got an interesting combat system that clearly must have taken a fair amount of time to script on the advanced editor and the humour is well written and not too over the top. Balances out nicely and has a weird, fun vibe.
I think there were a couple of issues with the scripting. I couldn't buy a pie with exactly 20pp, but could with a but more. Also, I died with 7 health in the survival mode. Still, an excellent and different game. 6/8

I like the game, but seems like a rip off of both Pokémon and Rock-Paper-Scissors.

I still really enjoy this. I wish there was a way to know what the high score was without using the back button. It would be cool to compete for high score.
