The game is a party-based RPG with randomly encountered enemies. The combat is somewhat similar to early Ultima games. When an enemy appears, the player is presented with a battle screen on which the party is positioned in the lower part, the enemies in the upper part. Characters can attack if they are close enough to the enemy, otherwise they have to move towards them. Magic spells should be cast in an appropriate direction to hurt the enemy.
