The Shield Meter is the health system featured in the game. Every character is surrounded by an invisible shield; attacking an opponent damages the shield instead of the character. Rather than instantly dying when the Shield Meter empties out, the character will retain one hitpoint, indicated by the character flashing red. The Shield Meter will instantly refill after five seconds, but any attack will instantly kill until it does. The fighting style plays similar to Nintendo's popular fighting series, Super Smash Bros (this type of fighting game is known as a Mascot Fighter in certain circles). Blocking and rolling, as well as usage of items are also included. However, the Shield Meter system is unique to this game.
