Description

Edda is a young girl who grew up in a small northern village together with her childhood friend Hulen. One day, enemies attack the village, and Edda is captured and transported to their slave ship. But a mysterious creature attacks the ship, and Edda sinks to the bottom of sea...

But she is not dead. Miraculously, she was turned into a mermaid. It appears that the sea is populated by mythical creatures she has heard about from legends. Just when she realizes she would probably never be able to see her world again, a clever little lobster named Bedin declares he is willing to help her.

Heroine Anthem is a Chinese (Taiwan)-made role-playing game. Unlike most other Chinese RPGs, it is not set in historical China, but in a fantasy world based on Scandinavian mythology. The game's art is influenced by Japanese anime style. The navigation is done from third-person perspective in predominantly side-scrolling environments. The enemies are visible on screen, and a contact with them initiates a battle. When the player enters a battle, party members must be set on the battle field. Even though the engine is turn-based, there is a real-time element in the battles: enemies will attack continuously, and the player has to assign commands to the characters quickly in order to act.
