The gameplay of the game is like Rise of Mana, althrough it broughts some elements from the Magical Drop series as well, when the player triggers a Drop Attack while on gameplay, it makes the game change the action RPG style to the puzzle game style, however, it requires to full the Tarot Bar with Card Shards, which are won after the enemies are defeated in one battle. Depending on the type of battle, the player must clear all the ball drops when facing an enemy, or must endurace a battle against the opponent when facing the boss. When the player wins the drop match, the enemy is defeated or the boss is lowered at half health points, but if it loses, the tarot character is defeated and the player is only able to use the mana character to defeat the enemy or boss on action roleplay mode, the tarot character is fully recovered after the battle is won. The experience points which are won after winning a battle have a potential to upgrade a character to adquire different abilities that can power it, such as perfecting one weapon, raise the speed or upgrading magic spells.
The Adventure Mode focus the player on a story starring one mana character and tarot character, which can be picked from the beginning and be named at own like. After the player picks the mana character and named it, next step will be picking a tarot card, which will represent the tarot character that the mana character that was chosen will meet further in the story. Adventure X makes both mana and tarot characters be usable in action rpg and puzzle modes.
The Exploration Mode uses Action RPG mode only and, unlike Adventure Mode in which it only follows a line quest, allows the player to explore the world areas freely and pick quests to full exp points, somewhat a sandbox like feature. Mana characters and tarot characters can be freely picked.

If the player runs out of lifes, must wait to the next day to refull them.
The Drop Match Mode uses Puzzle mode only, allows to play Magical Drop matches against the computer or with online players, mana and tarot characters can be picked freely.
The Tournament Mode makes the player enter in an endless single puzzle mode, until the character is defeated. Both mana and tarot characters can be picked.
