Lightning Princess Idle RPG Gameplay

A unique thing about Lightning Princess Idle RPG is how the developer constructed its gameplay. Unlike idle RPGs like Nikke: Goddess of Victory, Hero Adventure, and Super Snail, it has no dedicated menu to kickstart the battle part of the game.

Instead, the gameplay takes place on what we will call the home screen and it is about moving around a restrictive map and unleashing different kinds of attacks/skills on your enemies.

Lightning Princess Idle RPG is strategic, based on the character’s movement but winning the battle depends highly on the character, skills, traits, and equipment.

Your first experience with the game would need you to play following the in-game guide. However, a bulk is left unsaid which we talked about in this Lightning Princess idle RPG guide.

Movement in Lightning Princess Idle RPG

Unlike many idle role-playing games, Lightning Princess Idle RPG uses navigational buttons to control the character’s movement. This gives you some freedom as you can strategically avoid or go for an enemy.

You must master the character movement control using the navigational buttons. The developers did not fix the buttons on a selected screen part. As a result, you can play from any position although it can also be frustrating to move the player.

Mastering the character movement is also important because as you move manually you gather energy. You can then release the accumulated energy as energy bursts and destroy your enemies.

Manual energy accumulation and eventual release is another strategic part of Lightning Princess Idle RPG. You can run around the map avoiding enemies’ attacks, accumulating energy, and later targeting a large group of enemies or the boss with the energy generated.

The beautiful thing about the gameplay is that your enemies converge on the character, and you can take advantage of that to release your attack in their midst.

Lightning Princess will surely come with certain hiccups as you play the game. However, with the tips below you can ensure smooth gameplay:

Use the Auto Features (Auto Hunt and Auto Rage)

The auto features will give the game control over the basic and special skills and the character’s rage during a battle.

However, it should be carefully done as this will not give you the energy burst generated when you manually control the character. As a result, use only when you are trying to gain rewards or are very busy.

Do not forget to collect daily rewards

You need rewards to upgrade your characters. As a result, you should always keep your eyes out for the daily rewards seen in the Attendance Check and other features.  

Time the Rage Attack

It is common to experience defeats when playing the game due to your characters not being essentially equipped. For those who do not like spending their hard-earned money on games.

The better option is to play more. Revisit stages and defeat enemies to gain rewards to upgrade your character. You should also play more so you can level up and unlock certain features in the game.

Use Buffs
