Description of Golden Sun for GBA

Golden Sun is a contemporary presentation of the traditional console role-playing game formula, where the player guides a cast of four characters as they journey through a fantasy-themed game world, interact with other characters, battle many monsters, acquire increasingly powerful magic spells and equipment, and take part in a building, predefined narrative. While many actions the player takes are compulsory, Golden Sun often allows the player to complete certain objectives out of order, and to visit previous locations, which can advance minor story elements.

Much of the game's time spent outside of battle takes place in dungeons, caves, and other locales involving many puzzles integrated into their layout. One must push logs into rivers to cross them, shift the track of a mine cart to access new areas, and other activities to get from point A to point B and progress through the story and game world. Many of these puzzles revolve heavily around the usage of the game’s resident form of magic spells, "Psynergy" ("Energy" in the Japanese version), requiring the player to find items that grant the bearer new forms of Psynergy to accomplish tasks.

Psynergy spells can be used both in battle and in dungeons. Here, a cold spell is used to create a traversable path of frozen ice pillars from puddles of water.Both successful exploration of the game's world and victory in the game's battles are heavily dependent on the strategic usage of the hundreds of Psynergy spells available. Whereas many other RPGs limit the usage of their forms of magic to battles as offensive and defensive measures, Psynergy spells can be used both for battle, and for solving puzzles in the game's locales. Some types of Psynergy can only be used in combat; conversely, many spells are only used in the game's overworld and non-battle scenarios. At the same time, Psynergy spells can also be used in both situations.
