This game is owned by Flamingo. Ask permission before editing the page, thanks! Conscript is a game available on the PS4. It centers around various characters around the universe competing in an annual competition, known as The Conscript.
Once every year, an event known as The Conscript takes place. It is a tournament, in where the last one standing is proclaimed the champion and is given one wish. It has been like this for decades now, but no one has been able to defeat the final enemy of The Conscript. The arena where The Conscript is seems to have a mind of it's own, opening it's doors when The Conscript starts, and being able to change stage enviroments at will.
This year, however, a new contender wants to find the secrets behind The Conscript, and he aims to do it by winning the tournament and wishing to find out. But that won't be so easy...
The goal of each match is to eliminate the other players, which is done by dropping a player's health bar to 0 and exhausting all their lives, both of which only appear around them whenever damage is taken. If in the case a player meets certain obstacles or loses a life, they will go back to where they spawned.
The format of Classic Conscript. Here, you are spawned, along with up to three other players, in a stage, which scrolls along whenever someone goes runs into the edge of the screen. Eventually the stage loops back to where the players originally spawned, but obstacles are sometimes present, depending on the stage.
The format mainly used in Story Mode. Instead of spawning in a flat sidescrolling stage, you are set in a 3D arena where you can roam freely. When met with an important opponent, the camera will shift and focus onto the two fighters, temporarily turning into the Fighter format. Once the battle is over, it shifts back into an overhead perspective if the objective hasn't been completed, (i.e. defeating all enemies). Weak opponents do not have their own battles in the Fighter format and act somewhat similar to Dynasty Warriors' enemies; they come in bulk, and are relatively easy to manage.
It is possible to have an ally, either controlled by an AI Bot or another person. They will help in defeating enemies, and sometimes the Opposer. If both you and your ally encounters an important enemy, the ally will join in on the battle.
The opposing player is your main enemy, and must be defeated to win a match. They actively seek for you if controlled by an AI Bot and are usually accompanied by weaker enemies. They will defeat the enemies they are accompanied with unless they are allied to them.
Always controlled by AI Bots, they accompany the Opposer and serve as mini-bosses. They are counted as important enemies and have their own battles.
These are weak numerous AI Bots that are almost always present in a Rumble match. They will attack anyone that isn't allied to them, and if allied to an Opposer, they will help win the match. Sometimes they accompany an important enemy in battles as small nuisances.
They are not on either side and attack anyone. Always controlled by an AI Bots and count as important enemies.
At first, only Bhyz, Cecilius, Delion, Gwyndol, INGRID, Nihonus, Olanee, Ragaddon, Tim Tim and Viola are available to be played, but as you progress through Story Mode, more characters are unlocked.
|Life in a dystopian society overrun by a cutthroat gang has forced her to work up the ranks and become the leader; the Queen. She is vicious, she is deadly, and ready to give you a taste of the mafia.|
|Hailing from a planet of a powerful species that happen to resemble an endearing earth creature, she comes to bring glory to her nation as a representative of her people.
She has poor defences, but she makes up for it by being a speedy powerhouse.
|Created by an unknown genius, he was originally a mascot for a food brand before being abandoned in a rundown factory. He then decided he was a gentleman, he started retrofitting himself with deadly offensive software. Gentleman, indeed.
He glides across the screen very well, and delivers attacks quickly. Getting up is a pain, though.
|Delion, the Heir to the Throne||Next in the Hawotrian royal line of succession, he can mysteriously bend water to his will, and is highly popular despite his total deadpan personality. His father’s threats are the only reason he competes.
His entire moveset feeds off a water gauge that slowly depletes, forcing him to refill every once in a while, but his attacks are pretty powerful.
|When her twin sister died, she made a deal with an ice demon to bring her back, she was tricked into being cursed with an uncanny power to control ice. Her sister did come back, just as a ghost.
As Eres and her sister can switch places as the dominant fighter, she has twice as many moves as a normal fighter. Eres is more offensive while Sara is more defensive.
|Having trained with the universe’s best of the best, his blindness is only a minor setback to his remarkable marksmanship skills. Anyone who underestimates Flint gets the wrong end of his bow.
Since Flint’s main way of offense is his bow, a fair amount of distance is required for him to work. His randomised arrows are riddled with special effects that can be used to hinder the enemy.
|As was her mother who left her all the quintessential items a magic-user must have, she is a powerful witch who has made a name for herself by heading the entire Nineu Covenant, a notorious group of wizards and witches.
Gwyndol’s spells vary is range, and effect, but they all take time to cast. She’s a bit heavy, but can pack a large punch.
Hyacinth, the Lightning Bounder
|Hyacinth wields the Eledaea, a mystical artifact that channels the power of electricity, which she stole from a wizard’s castle. Her thievery comes from her harsh, poor life in the Dark Kingdom, and truly just wishes for everything to be all nice and peaceful.
Being a thief, she is one of the faster characters, and while her attacks are weak, her agility allows her to attack and block rapidly, which covers her weak defence.
INGRID, the Killing Machine
|A failed secret military project off in the Dead Realm, she burned her facility down after the scientists accidentally made her AI too smart. She seeks to see who she measures against the puny organic fleshsacks that plague the Conscript.
Her mobility is a bit stiff and limited and her (although beastly) attacks don’t go too far, she can withstand a lot of damage.
Juanita, the Angel of Death
|On her wedding day, Juanita's fiancee was inflicted with an uncurable disease. In a desperate attempt, she consulted a gypsy and brewed the ultimate cure-all, which cured him. This angered Death itself, so she was transformed into the Angel of Death, sworn to do Death's bidding.
Her attacks have interesting effects on her enemies that can be fun to play with.
Khaa'vul, the Naginata Naga
|Khaa’vul is a naga, a race of mighty warriors who prove to be formidible fighters. His weapon of choice is, oddly enough, what humans call the Naginata. He hides many abilities that he uses as the very helpful element of surprise.
Slow but with a long range, his Beast Mode makes for a hard enemy to face.
LaBrigé, the Lean Aviator
|LaBrigé is a famous pilot who, in a freak accident, got her biological structure changed, and gained the power to fly and control kinetic energy. She is very eager to test and hone her newfound powers at the latest Conscript.
She is a very flighty character, and even though her attacks are weak, she can handle large groups of enemies very well with her mainly area-of-effect moves.
Morrison, the Local Witch Doctor
|A gentle soul for a faraway land known as Muni, he is an avid practitioner of voodoo and witchcraft, well-respected among the local tribes. He is very cryptic and loves to brew potions, which he utilises along with his staff to defend himself.
Morrison’s chants can be helpful when you need a sudden boost, because he is pretty well-rounded and doesn’t excell in any area.
|Ninjas don't give away their bios.
Ninjas also don’t give away their strategy.
Olanee, the Ravager
|One of the last Mievula, she is very eager to kill everybody with her sharp, sharp claws, teeth and dirty battle tactics. She seems to be empowered by blood and violence, so she constantly seeks it, or create it.
Her movements are very jerky and will give the player a hard time controlling her, but in turn, her attacks and defences are really heavy.
|He was born into a magical family, with powerful magical capabilities, but what did he choose to do with his immense power? Puns. With his trusty fannypack, microphone stand, charisma and horrible puns, he's going to PUNnish anyone who gets in his way.
Q, the Vessel of Chaos
|It is unknown what Q is, who Q is, and why Q is. He deals in Chaos Magic, which is a type of magic that can warp reality and defy logic. Q never speaks, never displays any feelings, and no one has ever seen Q's face. There's a big air of mystery surrounding them.
|Born of earth and magma, Ragaddon is the unrelentless son of Gaea. Or rather, her puppet, as he doesn’t really have a mind of his own and his sole purpose is to serve her and call on the power of the earth to leave a trail of destruction behind.
The heaviest, tankiest character in the game, he is only effective close-range, so the player has to find a way to get close to the enemy.
Sir Pent, the Knight of Pythonia
|A noble knight from the kingdom of Pythonia, he carries with him a sacred sword, accompanied with a sentient snake bestowed upon him by the Snake Deity. He is a strong silent type, but he isn't emotionless, just very stoic.
|Fighting in The Conscript since the age of 6, he is the universe's youngest inventor. He boasts a jetpack, bazooka, hard-light shield and bionic arm. His parents are pretty supportive, but he is a little bit too reckless for his own good.
His shield bounces off most attacks, which provides much-needed defence for such a frail character. He needs distance to pull his attacks off. -
Ulita, the Axecrazy Grandma
|Carrying an array of guns, blades, explosives, and other deadly substances, she is here to prove that age doesn't matter when it comes to beating people up. She is surprisingly athletic for her age and she isn't afraid to show you her wrinkly fists when insulted.
Despite her appearance, she is a decent tank due to the large amount of body armour she has on, and while that also limits her speed, her attacks are hard to avoid.
|Viola, the Little Miss Sharpshooter||The very first person who entered the very first Conscript, Viola is a rootin' tootin' cowgirl who likes to shoot peoples' faces off. An expert marksman and hardcore rancher, she is ready face yet another challenger.
She's a pretty standard character, but works better long-ranged.
Weiss, the Nosy Reporter
|Weiss is a very new contender, who aims to find out the secrets of The Conscript, but first, he has to win. He has no special abilities of him to speak of and can be described as a Rumbler, but he scrapes by and can compare to the more powerful contenders, somehow.
The weakest character in the game, the best tactic while playing as him is to spam his attacks, sadly.
Xamy, the Innocent Schoolgirl
|A young, harmless girl who seems to have accidentally wandered into The Conscript. Uh... you're kinda creeping me out with that face. Hey, why are you pointing that knife at me? No... don't come any closer... stay away! I SAID STAY AWAY...!
Heehee. The contenders will not know what hit them. Everything is falling into place.
Yosef, the Mad Scientist
|A scientist driven mad by his research, Yosef now meandres the universe, conducting brutal and unethical experiments on whichever happens to cross his path. He has no sense of morality, and has no problem in throwing random chemicals and firing lasers at everything. Such a shame, his research could've been groundbreaking.
His movements are very erratic and are very probable to dodging attacks, and can attack swiftly while moving around, making him an annoying target.
Zanin, the Wild Huntress
|Raised in the wild, she is friend to all animals, who frequently run to her side to protect, help attack and rip things to shreds. She is also primitive, loaded with spears, crude bows and the like, but she can pack a punch with the help of her adorable, vicious animal friends.
