The gameplay mostly consists of exploring dungeons, hacking away at enemy monsters, collecting power-ups and casting spells against enemy monsters along the way. They can also explore the town, buying weapons items and armor to create over 300 variations to help them in their journey.

And finally Big Bang Arts which is obtained through the overlapping of the powers from multiple party members, the more party members, the more powerful the attack. There is also multiplayer capability utilizing Ad-Hoc to have three human opponents team up.
