- In GrimGrimoire, Lillet the main character will not directly fight. Instead you will summon elves and fairy units to fight for you.
- Mana is needed to summon units and cast spells. To gain mana you must collect mana crystals that are on the battle field. So effectively command your units to collect and store mana crystals. Caution: Enemy units will try to collect the mana crystals as well, so defend your territory!

Real-time strategy from a different perspective, GrimGrimoire is a superb blend of battles that differ from the genre’s norms

Could be the most exciting strategy game developed exclusively for a console since Pikmin
