The gameplay is slightly similar to the Super Smash Bros. series, but it is 3D platforming. Up to four players can be fought in a single match, each player has different attack styles, but they can also wield weapons for different attack styles and even armor for more defense against opponent attacks. If a character wields a weapon, they won't be able to use their normal attacks.
The main element in the game is the fact that the human characters can alter/transform into powerful beasts such as a Dragon, Ifrit, and Salamander, by pressing the L button (though players can change their controls in the Settings Menu). Although they become more powerful, if a opponent is still human, they are able to still defeat characters in their monster form. If the player wishes to revert back to the character's human form, they can just press the same button that transforms the human into their monster form.
The way of defeating the player goes like this, the characters have a health bar, and once they run out of health, they will collapse and will lose a life. If one defeats a character in monster form, they will revert back to their human form.
There are many items in this game, the main item, the Golden Orb, allows the player to use their special move, in which they will turn from human to monster and unleash it. Other items are helpful at times, such as traps, which do bad stuff to other players, like freezing them and hurting them.
