There are many mechanics within gameplay in both Triangle Strategy and Final Fantasy that are quite similar. Both games use height, distance, and time as heavy features that matter in battle. This means that players need to think carefully about their fighters and their environment before making a choice when in a fight. Another similarity is the importance of knowing your enemy. You can fight just about any enemy in some video games if your character is powerful enough. In both Final Fantasy Tactics and Triangle Strategy, players will meet major consequences if they are not adequately prepared for each battle.

Final Fantasy Tactics is especially known by its fans for its grind-heavy capabilities. By comparison, players will find that Triangle Strategy provides fewer opportunities to gather currency and EXP within each in-game day. Those who are new to Triangle Strategy should be prepared to ration and plan around the sparse accumulation opportunities. For some, the simplicity of Triangle Strategy in this regard is more attractive, as grinding can be seen as repetitive. Both games follow a system of gradual fighter improvement with customization in rank and abilities.

Story Style
