Alter A.I.L.A. Genesis takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. You play the role of a young man known as Leon, who seeks to survive in the harsh environment he is brought into.

Exploration is done mainly via a side-scrolling view. In certain areas, an exclamation mark will sometimes appear, indicating the presence of hostiles. Press Z when this happens to initiate battle, or wait to let it pass. Sometimes battle will be unavoidable. When walking, enemy encounters won't occur.

The battle system revolves mainly around each character's Abilities, which are a set of commands specific to that character. Abilities require AP and EX to use. AP is gained every time a character takes a turn. The default is 2. EX is gained every time a character uses an Ability. The default is 1. Note that this may change depending on the situation.

"Known Glitches"
Due to the limited functionality of the RPG Maker 2003 engine, there are various glitches and bugs which are unfortunately unfeasible or impossible to fix:
- Sometimes during an action, the battle data of a character will be temporarily overwritten with another character's, causing them to not perform as expected for that round.
- In certain cases, player actions can be interrupted by the enemy or other character's actions. To minimize the occurance of this, wait for current actions to finish before selecting an action with another character.
- Using items and guarding doesn't trigger the code to check for enemy deaths. You need to actually use an ability, or let the enemies take a turn.
- Although not a bug, Active Mode should be changed to Passive Mode in the in-game menu to prevent enemies from acting while you are taking an action.

"Hints and Tips for Boss Battles"
- Don't expect to just be able to spam regular attacks until you can use your Exceed ability. You won't win an attrition war with the enemy party.
- Always target the enemy's weakness if you can. If you want, think of this as a Shin Megami Tensei game. :P
- Make sure to keep your HP up. The vast majority of bosses have pretty powerful high EX costing abilities that'll wipe out your party if you're not expecting it.

- That said, keep in mind, the enemy is subject to the same rules as the party. In other words, they're also gaining AP and EX, and they also need it to use their more hard-hitting abilities. So if you can prevent them from using them while still retaining the ability to use yours, you'll be able to beat any boss.
- You can tell how much EX an enemy's ability uses by looking at the name of the ability. Similar to your character's abilities, it'll show up as the number of squares on the left side of the name.
- Of course, the above passes quickly so isn't that reliable of a method. As a general rule, you can expect that:
- Anything that uses an element other than Force likely costs at least 1 EX
- Anything that does multi-targetting likely costs at least 1 EX
- Anything that hits everyone hard probably costs 2 or more EX
- Anything that outright kills someone from full health, or makes you swear "Bullshit! That can't happen!" is likely an Exceed ability.
- Chances are it'll also be very flashy.
- Obviously, there's going to be some exceptions, but for the most part, this can be followed.

- Don't ignore Field Effects either. Bosses don't, and the Field Effects they use generally stack things in their favor. It's not just about dealing as much damage as quickly as you can. A lot of times, it's also about controlling the situation.
- Modes, Field Effects, and Boost ailments all stack. If you're creative, you may be able to create a situation where you can pretty much negate everything the boss throws at you, while tossing out Exceed abilities every turn. Bosses won't stand a chance.

MAP SAVE FREEZE: If you're changing things in this game in the editor and your save file freezes on the world map as a result, press F9, go to switch 112 and 113, and turn them both OFF. That should fix it.

Edit: You should screen-cap it next time :D


Done and done.

Here's the best one I have a picture of so far. I'll post again if I manage to break 30k again.



Buster Cannon may not be the most efficient method of dealing damage, but it's still one of my favorite EX moves cause it makes the biggest numbers, period from what I've seen so far. What can I say. I like big numbers and I cannot lie.:D

Wait...are we sure that's not just multiple hits? I thought the cap was 9999.

It helps that damage in AAG is dealt manually with battle events...

Gray's Buster Cannon only hits one enemy one time, last I checked.

Update: So I was having trouble getting anything over 25k for a little while. Apparently in the file I was loading from to get that last picture, I had Gray equipped with a Joker Card and the X-System, instead of the Joker Card and Wild Card, like I had earlier when I broke 30k. I rectified it and this is the result.



UPDATE: Ok, last one, I promise guys. Just trust me, this one's worth it...



Holy Freaking Crap! Seriously!? I replaced the Wild Card with the Zero System on a whim and let Gray's HP run out and this is what happened. Ok, with this one, I'm done derailing the comments with my silly damage pics. I hope you all enjoyed my little experiment as much as I did. This just goes to show, buffs and DMG +% bonuses when stacked properly can change the whole game.

Again, stellar work on the combat system, Neok. Two thumbs up. I'd give more, but two is all I have.

Lol, wow! You're right. It IS an SMT game now! It's a challenging game where your tactics make a huge difference in how well you do!

Also, I lied earlier. This, however, is truly the last of me trying to deal stupid high damage.

I suddenly remembered Karsuman's comment about Violet being broken, and realized that I was doing it wrong earlier. Whoever it was that said it takes a woman to do a man's job was apparently right. Violet pwns. Period. End of Story. O_O




BTW, I'm curious Neok, can anything in the game survive this? XD

Teleporters overload check
that invisible wall check
That ok room with teleporters check
Looking for that one single teleporter *throws AAG to the wall*

Holy mother of God and Satan. What level was Violet at?!

Holy mother of God and Satan. What level was Violet at?!


If I remember correctly, she was 48 at the time.
Finally got out of the underwater facility but homg the next phase is hell DX
ARGH all of my supplies are gone and I can't win this damn boss fight ;A;
Levels do not matter nearly as much as setup in this game.
Is it me or Erin isn't as strong as she's ought to be? I mean seriously
Fighting one on one with Leon isn't the best thing ever, she dies faster than indy at this rate! at least she doesn't get one shott'd but still!

OH MY GOD I EQUIPPED HER WITH SPEAR WHICH IS BETTER EVEN THO FIRST AID IS DECREASED MAJORLY UNTIL HE STARTED SPAMMING ETHER ROUND WHICH IS LIKE 1014 DAMAGE AND MY HP IS ONLY LIEK WHAT?! 1914 OR SO AND THEN AND THEN MY SPEED BOOST RAN OUT OF EFFECT AND HE HIT ME AGAIN AND I DIED FOR REALZ

DAMMNIIITTT NEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

p.s. she's lvl 30 IS THERE SOMETHING I'M MISSING HERE?!?!?!


I had the same problem Ness, however

My Erin was a little stronger. You need some good armor and have a couple powerful bombs like destruction zone. I equipped her with S.P.E.A.R., Vice and HP Facilitator, Used attack, speed, and defense boosters, and Celebrate Field Effect. I attacked to build up EX, then used First Aid when necessary. When he started pulling out Blast Revolver, then I used my Destruction Zones to knock off the last bit of HP he had.

I just defeated him. I had HP faciliator, EX-skeleton suit, SPD booster, BARRAGE (this time), 2 atom bombs. and I finally killed him off ...faster than I thought. I just made sure she always has full hp, with 20 agi+speed booster it seems that AP crushing him you can have 3 turns in a row? *dies*

Apparently, all I had to do was change her agi to 20 for maximum effect...


A new problem arises!

Please help me with Avalon 2 ;a;
I can't find the orange switch ahaha I feel like I'm going in circles XD

A new problem arises!


Hmmm... this should be basically what you need to do.

If I remember correctly, you need to head right and drop down, trigger the green teleporter switch to make it red, and then run all the way left to get to the first red teleporter. Take each red teleporter while heading to your right and jumping that way if you can't find one on that level. Eventually you should see a new red switch, hit it to activate the orange teleporters. Drop to the bottom and the orange ones should take you straight up to the exit pretty quickly. Also, if my memory serves correctly this is the place that has Chaos Mode. It's should be rather hard to miss if I'm right, and is very strong.


As for an amusing story regarding that fight from before you spoke of...

So I, too, was walked into that fight and thought things wouldn't be so bad. Then he started spamming Ether Shot and always sticking the HP Crush from Aerial Drop and made my life miserable. Cue round two when I'm actually prepared, I start off by trying to EX Crush him to curb the spamming of Ether Shot. What does he do? Ether Shot, Ether Shot, Aerial Drop. All after I finally stuck EX Crush and all in a row. Although I did finally win that time, he was still quite a jerk about it.
Woo!!! I beat the game finally! This was a great game Mr.Neok. Now I got like 30+ videos to make, so once I get those finished and uploaded, I'll make my review of the game.
What are good areas for low-level grinding? And how long should I stay for each area?

I forgot most of the areas near the beginning of the game. Trying to get level up the bonus characters since most of them have a hard time beating their shadows at Level 1 ( with the exception of Tinderbot )
When I was running through the arena upon immediately getting access to it that was the first boss that actually managed to stop me.

That's round 85 of 100, btw. Kind of sad!
