Evertale Game Guide, Tip & Tricks

Evertale is a turn-based RPG developed by ZigZaGame for Android and iOS. It currently sits at 5 million+ downloads, and for good reason. Evertale’s quirky art style, stellar voice acting, and Pokemon-ish gameplay are the key ingredients to its success, and if you haven’t played it already, odds are you’ll love it.

Loaded would be an understatement for Evertale. Its semi-open world is full of monsters waiting to be captured and secrets lingering to be discovered. But because Evertale’s so jam-packed, most new players will have trouble fitting in. Luckily, that’s where our Evertale game guide comes in.

What’s The Story of Evertale?

An evil god created an event known as the “Pandemonium” which takes place after a set amount of years. During the Pandemonium, monsters and terrifying creatures pop up all over Erden. Chosen warriors that have the power of the “Crest” serve as humanity’s heroes, and this is where you come in.

It’s your job to end the Pandemonium, and as the story unfolds, you take control of various protagonists across a 10-arc plotline.

Now for the shocker. Evertale’s story mode will easily gobble up 20+ hours. Its story is gigantic for a mobile game, but somehow, ZigZaGame perfectly pulls it off. The story is strong. It never loses its grip, it’s well-written, and lore is spread in every inch of the game. 

Add in the multiplayer mode, side quests, and frequent new updates, and Evertale becomes a game that you might not be able to finish as soon as you hoped.

Evertale Gameplay – A Mix of Pokemon and Intricate RPG

Right at the start you’re dropped into the world of Erden where you navigate by tapping an area and your character moves there. Evertale is a semi-open world game, so many areas are giant but the scenery keeps changing every so often.

The camera angle is top-down, and at times switches to side-scrolling scenarios, but battles are always 2D and turn-based.

The main gameplay consists of you participating in battles with a team that has heroes and monsters in it. All characters have a set of attacks or skills. Basic attacks award you “Team Spirit” while executing a character’s special moves consumes them.

Basic and special attacks have different status effects such as Flame, Earth, and Lightning. Each skill also has a description that details what it exactly does. For example, all skills attack enemies, but some of them might add a buff or debuff to your character too.

Furthermore, when you’re facing monsters in battle, you can capture and include them in your team by pressing the “Catch” button. The lower the enemy monster’s health, the better your chances of capturing them. It’s a mechanic similar to the Pokemon franchise for those of you who are familiar with it.

Finally, you unlock different weapons throughout the game for your characters. Leveling up your units is a feature too. There is tons more that you can mess around with, but this is what the gist of gameplay is like.

Levels & World Exploration In Evertale

Erden is an enormous semi-open world area. Fights and battles begin automatically as you progress the story by moving your character across the map toward the next objective marker.

Story mode is the meat of Evertale. New characters, epic battles, weapons, areas, and lore all await here.

The PvP “Battalion” is the other game mode available in Evertale. It’s a multiplayer mode and players can access it after they complete chapter 2. But in this mode, while you earn rewards such as currency and items, you don’t get any new weapons or characters. Additionally, you can also join Alliances in multiplayer and participate in clan events.

The story mode is where you will be doing most of the progression and then you can compete with other players in the PvP.

Evertale Tips & Tricks

Here’s one Evertale tip that every player should know.

Read The Descriptions, They Matter More Than You Could Imagine

One thing I wish I had known earlier before playing Evertale is that the descriptions are too important to miss. Some character attacks may apply a debuff to your character, and if you don’t know that beforehand, you might think you’re about to win but end up dying instead.

What’s also worth noting is that some attack skills can be chained with attacks in your future turns. An example is that the poison skill of one character applies a debuff to a target, but it does negligible damage. However, when you attack the enemy in your next turn, they will take massive damage even from basic attacks.

Reading every attack’s description is really important for that reason, and that’s the first thing you should do whenever you unlock new characters or weapons in Evertale.
