Fight Preparation

The core of the Shadow Wars experience is in the fights. The player will select a team of up to 4 monsters to face up to 3 waves, consisting of 2-3 enemy monsters. Fights in Shadow Wars are tactical and turn-based. Crew setup and skillful play will be needed to win consistently.

To enter a fight, tap on the ENTER button on any unlocked fight location. The following screen will show the boss monster and the available rewards for each star earned in the fight. From here, the player may enter the crew setup phase or go back to the map.
Pre Fight Info 
  • The enemy crew the player will face, as well as the final boss, is displayed on the upper right hand side of the screen.
    • Level, Evolution Tier, and Health of the boss monster are also displayed.
    • Tap and hold for detailed access to the monster.
  • The boss’ crew is shown underneath them, in the order in which they will appear. The boss will always appear in the final wave.
    • The number of waves the player will encounter depends on the number of enemies shown.
      • Each wave will have a minimum of 2 monsters and a maximum of 3.
      • There is a maximum of 3 waves per fight.
