Psychic Force FAQ v 0.6 December 9, 1996 This is my attempt at writing a FAQ for Psychic Force, Taito's first entry into the 3d fighter genre. Psychic Force has a lot of original ideas as well as some great character designs, music, graphics, and wonderfully cheesy storylines. It also plays like no other fighting game. A few random comments. I'm using the feminine pronoun in this FAQ just because I used the masculine throughout my last one, the Vampire Hunter FAQ. Replace with "he" if they offend you. ^_^ (On that note, Emilio is in fact, male. ^_^) The format for the special moves might look weird but it saves me a lot of time and aggravation to do them this way. If you "close off" the box on the right side, you have to insert a whole bunch of spaces after each line and it's a huge pain in the butt. Hope it doesn't bother anyone too much. It probably takes me 1/3 or 1/4 as much time to do it this way. About the term "psychiker." It's a common Japanese-English expression that means, "someone with paranormal abilities." Even though it sounds weird, I'm using it here because "psychic" means something else. This FAQ isn't finished yet. Right now, I just have some very basic gameplay info. I wanted to get this out because the PlayStation version is out. In the near future, I hope to more detailed character backgrounds and more about the system. Hope the information in this FAQ is helpful. As usual, my main reference is Gamest magazine. Version History (Who cares? I dunno...) v0.5 Basic controls Special moves for each character v0.6 Added character profiles and stories Added detailed damage / timing date for special moves Fixed Keith code, throw command, and some typos This FAQ is copyright 1996 Kenichiro Tanaka.

Gameplay Notes V. Credits ============================================================================== I. Basics ============================================================================== -------------- A. The Display -------------- The display in Psychic Force is a little different from most fighters. In the main part of the screen are the two fighters, the background, and the magical field defined by a set of lines. At the top, in the center, is the time remaining. In each top corner are the fighters' names, and below that, along the sides, are the health meter, and the Psycho Gauge. ------------------ B. The Environment ------------------ All combat in Psychic Force takes place in a cubic space defined by a magical force field. The fighters float inside this space and are capable of movement in all directions. The gameplay is 2d. The walls of the force field play a big part in the strategy behind Psychic Force. Your character takes damage when she is forced into a wall by your opponent. You do not take damage, however, if you move into the wall yourself. If you take another hit as you bounce off from the wall, your character will become stunned and fall through the air. You are invulnerable while you're falling. As in most fighting games, the first character to win two rounds wins the match. However, you cannot win a round on time. i.e., if time runs out, neither player wins. Instead, you go to a sudden death round in which the space is much smaller and both characters have 0% psycho gauge. The first person to land an attack wins. When you are fighting the computer, however, the character with more health remaining at the end of the round wins. --------------- C. The Controls --------------- The characters in Psychic Force are controlled with an eight directional joystick and three buttons: guard, light attack, and heavy attack. The layout is as follows: O O O \ | / O- -O Guard Light Heavy / | \ O O O On the PlayStation, guard is square, light attack is triangle, and heavy attack is circle. 1. Close Range Attacks ---------- Light: A quick attack that does light damage. Heavy: A slower attack that does heavy damage. Light, light, light, light: "Combo quick." Light, heavy: "Combo short." The last attack can be interrupted by a special move. Light, light, heavy: "Combo medium." The last attack can be interrupted by a special move. Light, light, light, heavy: "Combo long." Guard + light: Throw. Officially, combo short and combo medium are called "Combo Special 1" and "Combo Special 2," respectively, when you interrupt the last attack with a special move. 2. Long Range Attacks ---------- Light: "Normal Shot." A projectile. Heavy: "Normal Shot." A projectile which will knock your opponent back if it hits. The shot can be aimed. 3. Special Attacks ---------- The special move system in Psychic Force is interesting in that it doesn't matter which direction you enter the command. For example, Wendy's Air Crescent is: | \ -O + attack O O Not only can you do this motion regardless of which side you're on, you can also do: O \ -O / + attack O O O | / -O + attack O- / | + attack O O ...and so on and so on. 4. Defense ---------- Guard: A standard block. You will take block damage from special moves (but not from Normal Shots). Special moves will also knock you back Guard + 360: "Barrier Guard." Drains your Psycho Meter but you are totally invulnerable. You will not be knocked back by blocking a special move either. In fact, if your opponent touches you while you have your Barrier Guard up, she will be knocked back instead. O- -O + Guard: Evasion barrier. If you enter this command as you are being knocked into the magic field, your character will put up a force field and avoid slamming against the field. It uses 40% of your psycho gauge. The timing is tricky but you can avoid a lot of damage by doing this. 5. Movement ---------- Pushing the joystick in any direction will make your character move in that direction. Duh. Light + Heavy + any direction: "Normal Dash." Normal Dashes have a set distance and once you start one, you cannot do anything until you stop. You can buffer special moves though, so they come out as soon as you stop. Light + Heavy: "Quick Dash." You dash at high speed toward your opponent. During a Quick Dash, you have a barrier in front of you which cancels your opponent's Normal Shots. You can stop and attack during a Quick Dash by hitting an attack button or by entering a throw. Below are the speeds for all the characters: Move Dash Burn 46 80 Emilio 46 82 Wendy 48 82 Sonia 46 80 Brad 44 78 Wong 44 76 Genma 42 76 Gates 40 76 Keith 46 80 All characters Quick Dash at the same speed. I'm not sure what the units are for these numbers. 6. Etc ---------- Guard + Light + Heavy: Power up your Psycho Meter. You regenerate Psycho Power automatically when you're not doing anything, but pressing G+L+H charges your meter considerably faster. On the PlayStation, each character has four different outfits. Heavy attack selects the 1P color and light attack selects the 2P color. I'm not sure if the guard and start colors are original to the PlayStation or if they're from Psychic Force EX. Pressing start pauses the game. Pressing select while the game is paused will bring up a menu that lets you exit the game. Also, pressing select during training mode move the CPU character back to the middle of the field. This is useful for when you've wedged your opponent into the corner. ============================================================================== II. Characters ============================================================================== The layout for the special moves follows this format: .- Name of Move -------------------------------------------------------------- | | Joystick and button command | | Description of move. | | Psy: Psycho Guage used | Damage: Damage (duh) | Start-up: The number of frames before the attack regions appear.
