Attack on Titan: Assault

So you want to be the best titan slayer there ever was, eh? It's a good goal to have, but getting there takes some serious grit. So, we're going to run through everything you'll need to know to take titans on in a turn-based style.

So, the first thing you should know is that the number of attacks you make is dictated by the size of your team. You can have a maximum of six soldiers in your team, and you want to fill each slot, as each member will only attack once per turn - unless you have a special move.

No surprise to anyone, but that also means that each individual attack's strength will be dictated by the character that used it. As such, offensive characters that have strong attacks and special moves should probably be given priority on equipment and upgrades.

You can select which titan to attack by tapping their portrait at the top of the screen, and then once you press the Fight button in the bottom right, your characters jump to life.

Each attack activates a QTE, and if you tap when the larger circle close in on the one in the centre, you'll get a Perfect hit, and do more damage. Continue to do this, and a damage multiplier will deal extra harm to your enemies.

As you battle you'll also earn points for an execution - a single strong attack that, despite what the name suggests, doesn't guarantee a kill. Still, having your strongest soldier lash out with an execution is a great idea against stronger titans.
