Game Modes

Destroy All Enemies-- In this game mode the player must destroy a set number of enemies. This battle type can be broken down into two sub types. It can be a Floodgate battle, in which floodgate statues spontaneously produce more enemies until destroyed. It could also be a Timed battle, in which all enemies must be destroyed in a set number of moves.

Pursuit-- In a Pursuit battle the player must chase down and destroy a turtle demon in a track suit. This must be done before the runner reaches a blue square on the map.

Timed Destination-- The player must guide at least one member of the team to a red square on the map. Demons are interspersed around the map to hinder the player.

Timed Floodgate-- This variation of the Floodgate battle is a combination between Timed Battle and Destroy All Enemies. The player must wait a set amount of time on a red square on the map until the floodgates are destroyed. After the floodgates are destroyed the player must destroy the remaining demons.
