It takes about an hour to fully charge all three devices and then they’re good for 1-2 hours of play (varies with game mode and play style).
You need a clear playspace of about 2m x 2m. Laminate floors are great, but low pile carpet, tile and even smooth concrete work. Likewise, indoors is best but so long as you’re not outdoors in direct sunlight (or rain!), everything should be copacetic.
N.B. If playing Single Player or Online you’ll connect to both Temari and the Tower, but when playing a local battle against another Human, only connect to a single Temari and Tower. Your opponent will then start the app on their device and connect to the free Temari (this sounds harder than it is).
1. Aim your sights at a Temari or the Tower to gain power. Spend power by energizing cards, giving commands or taking direct control of the Temari from your AI.
2. Cards (like Lasers) temporarily add significant new augmented abilities.
Once collected, card abilities are triggered at the press of a button. Each depletes, and needs replacing.
3. Work with your AI co-pilot to combine digital and physical attacks to drain your opponent’s health and shields to 0 before they do the same to you!
If you’re feeling especially skillful or lucky, try for the ultimate victory - a Backstab that ejects your rival!
Leveling and mastering these abilities while working with your AI co-pilots against all challengers (Human or AI) is the core of Temari’s gameplay - the result is an addictive contest of reflexes, strategy, timing… and a little luck!
