You star the game as a regular kid that dreams of becoming a Twinbee pilot when suddenly he is magically transported to the fantasy land of Twinbee. There he is met by the Twinbee jet itself, who has lost track of his heroic pilot, Light, and now needs your help to find him. Your journey will take you all over the gameworld, meeting the characters from the game and fighting the minions of an evil pilot duo who seeks to prevent the reunion of the Twinbee fighters.
The game is played from a 3rd-person perspective from which you control Twinbee as he explores the land talking with NPCs for quests and items. Combat is active turn-based, a-la Final Fantasy with you selecting your actions while a timer counting down to the next enemy turn plays in real time. The game also allows you to incorporate different characters as party members, and depending on their abilities, they allow you to perform combo moves in which they join forces for additional damage.
