About Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle
Phantom Brave is a turn based strategy RPG that incorporates unique battle styles and a
hardcore character customization system. Players can create units from a list of
monster/ghost categories and power them up to exponentially.

Battle System
There are two main phases to Phantom Brave’s battle system. The first phase is the
Confine phase. Marona, the protagonist of this game, can summon ghosts and
monsters as battle units to fight for her. However, in order to do so she must “confine”
souls into objects on the battlefield like rocks, plants, and items. Depending on what
object you use as the host, the stats of the units you summon will greatly differ. Some
units become stronger on certain objects, so knowing your spirits’ characteristics
becomes a very important strategic element.
