Strategy

General Strategy:
The system for adancement in Kingdom Hearts centers mostly on the abilities that one has equipped. Similar to the “Materia” system from Final Fantasy VII, a majority of Sora’s actions are unlocked by equipping abilites. The number of abilites that Sora and others can have equipped increases as the character’s level increases, as well as by using “AP-ups” which will give a selected chracter one more AP.

Note: Sora and Donald gain magic from story events – no abilites are required.

Sora and others gain EXP from each defeated enemy, as well as from “TECH” bonuses, which occur when Sora performs a extra-credit action, such as attacking a large enemy in a hard-to-reach spot, or blocking an enemy’s attack (I.E. if Sora manages to halt Riku’s vertical slash on Destiny Islands.) Kingdom Heartes manages to avoid the issue of a certain character leveling up incredibly higher due to his/her last hit on an enemy or boss, as all characters gain the set EXP from the defeated enemy.

The combat system is action-based, and at many time incredibly intense. However, the more abilites and levels that Sora has obtained make the game much easier. Still, it is wize to keep your other party members, especially one’s with a healing factor alive as they will greatly aid you during play.

Form Selection:
In the first stage of the game, “Dive to the Heart,” Sora is given the choice of one of three weapons, and sacrificing one of the two he did not choose. The choice the player makes will affect Sora’s starting status. The stats are as follows:

Keep Sword, Sacrifice Shild – HP: 18 MP: 2 AP: 3 STR: 6 DEF: 1 Weapon: Sword
Keep Sword, Sacrifice Staff – HP: 18 MP: 2 AP: 1 STR: 6 DEF: 2 Weapon: Sword
Keep Shield, Sacrifice Sword – HP: 18 MP: 2 AP: 3 STR: 4 DEF: 4 Weapon: Shield
Keep Shield, Sacrifice Staff – HP: 18 MP: 2 AP: 1 STR: 5 DEF: 4 Weapon: Shield
Keep Staff, Sacrifice Sword – HP: 18 MP: 3 AP: 3 STR: 3 DEF: 3 Weapon: Staff
Keep Staff, Sacrifice Shield – HP: 18 MP: 3 AP: 3 STR: 5 DEF: 1 Weapon: Staff

Pace Selection:
Towards the end of Sora’s time in “Dive to the Heart,” he is given the option to choose the pace at which he wishes to proceed in the game. He will be asked a question each by three of his friends from “Destiny Islands.” His answers will decide at which pace he will proceed in the game.
