The gameplay of the Legend of Dragoon:
There are three modes to play:
- The area map
- The field
- The battle screen
There are several routes in the 3D map which are to be explored by the player as the game progresses. At the verge of each route, there are different representations of routes in which the player can enter, which includes towns and dungeons as well. More routes are unlocked as the player proceeds.
Navigation of different areas on the world map is possible through the field map.
By talking with characters, roaming in the environment, and advancing the story are also possible here.
The player can enter the battle screen in field mode, at any particular moment in the story, and at random on the area map. The maximum number of characters used in the battle is 3. There are 4 options available for the player to command for their character on the other party member’s turn and they are:
Attack with a weapon
Guard, so that the health can be recovered
When the player selects the attack option, activation of a quick time event called “Addition” takes place. In this mechanism, 2 blue squares are seen on the screen. These squares start to converge. The player should press a button as soon as the squares overlap to perform more damage. More advanced additions are rewarded to the player as the game progresses and more damage can be done.
The magic attack option is also available in which the strength of the attack of the player can be increased by pressing a button repeatedly.
A Dragoon Spirit is also available in the game, which appears after collecting spirit points as the story proceeds. Through this, the player transforms itself in a dragoon form during the battle, in which wings are added to the character and start floating in the air. Spirit points can be gained after performing an addition attack successfully. The above-mentioned 4 commands are also replaced by Dragoon Attack and Dragoon Magic. The damage and damage resistance also boosts up.
Dragoon Attack allows the player to increase its number of attacks. This can only be done for a limited period. To increase the time limit, the X button must be pressed by the player before the time gets over as a circle with a line appears on the screen moving in a clockwise direction to tell the time.
Powerful offensive or defensive spells can be performed by choosing the Dragoon Magic option.
The Dragoon Option can be used for limited turns. One must recharge it to use it again.
The menu screen can also be used while not in a battle to configure other characters’ status, abilities, items, and the game can also be saved here. The addition attack option is also present here.
