Imagine a game with the addictive adventure combined with the strategic element of Pocket Monsters also known as Pokemon and its fun battle, and you might have an idea of what Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will play like. Nintendo’s in-house development team, Game Freak Interactive, is working on a game that combines all these elements into a title requiring reflexes, forethought and strategic planning in a furious Pokemon game where the victor is the player conquering to be as a Pokemon master.
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is pretty unique at its own terms knowing the previous Pokemon games that have been released– Pokemon fall from the sky, and players have to choose one and raise it to its fullest potential. Players then strategically use them to win battles along the way in the quest of becoming the best Pokemon master he or she can be. Of course, it wont be easy, and that is where the game addicting element comes it — the challenge.
That’s not all, however. Players can enlist the help of up to 6 Pokemons to strengthen their own team against the strongest enemies. These are called forth using Pokemon type combinations. The entire game takes place from a side view.
The game will have Pokemon gyms based in several different location. Each gym represents a different type of Pokemon and increasing level of challenge along the way. If you can conquer them all, then you are going to be qualified in the Pokemon league in the mission of beating the Pokemon Elites.
While we haven’t seen the game in action yet, you can tell a lot about how it works from the screenshots. It’s apparent that there will be some interaction with computerized characters (likely for things like tutorials or training), and players will be able to track the status of Pokemons and its abilities. Players will likely have to challenge a series of computer-controlled opponents to make their way through the game.
The game will utilize the online game link for multiplayer battles, which we suspect will be the strongest element of the game. As many as four players will go head-to-head in some Pokemon tournament battles.
The level of detail shown in these screenshots is impressive, from the various plants and trees in the background to the cracks and rubble of the fortress walls. The flame effects from burning Pokemons are also rather pretty, and we’re assuming that the game will scroll nicely from one Pokemon to another.
