About Shining Force

Shining Force is a 1992 fantasy turn-based tactics role-playing video game for the Mega Drive/Genesis console. The game is the second instalment of the Shining series developed by Sega.

In Shining Force, battles take place in square grids, and each unit occupies one square. Each unit can move up to a fixed amount of squares along the battlefield, determined by its Move statistic. Depending on its location relative to enemies and to allies, a unit can also perform one action: attack, cast a spell, use an item, or search the area.
