You have x attack slots. With this attack slot you can do x different options in a round.

B - back up and slash
S - stand and slash
C - charge attack
Shield - Defend
Left, Right Hand Item

On the top screen you'll see your opponents attack slots and depending on your speed and foresight you may/may not be able to see what moves they are going to commit to.

If you have the opportunity to see what they are going to do you can choose the best form of attack (experiment or talk to locals to figure out two good hints on this).

The damage is dealt per attack. If your player is faster than the enemy your attack damage(to them) will be inflicted first (one point at a time). This is important from the stand point of dying. If you're faster than your opponent and both of you deal a "death" blow the faster one will most likely win the duel(based on the health of the current situation).

After defeating people in an Arena you will be awarded gold, experience and a stat boost. The stat boost is based on which person you're fighting (W,M,S) and which town you're in. Each town has different stat attributes to there fighters and therefore different stat boosts.


Almost all controls are based on the touch screen.
