Shining is a series of fantasy console games developed by Sega. The series can be thought of as Sega's main venture into the fantasy genre. The first game, Shining in the Darkness can be compared to the early Might and Magic games or the Wizardry series, in that the game is a 3D dungeon crawler with randomly encountered, turn-based battles.

The next game released in the series was Shining Force, which can be compared to the Fire Emblem series, especially Shining Force's contemporary titles in the series, because of its turn-based strategy style with battle scenes acted out with sprites. Other spin-offs include Shining Soul, which can be considered a Rogue-like.

Additional Information

Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon is a remake of Shining Force: The Legacy of Great Intention for the Game Boy Advance. Shining Force is a turn-based tactical RPG. Battles take place in square grids, and each unit occupies 1 square. Units can belong to one of two sides: allies (controlled by the player) or enemies (controlled by the computer AI). Each unit can move up to a fixed number of squares along the battlefield, determined by its Move statistic.

Depending on its location relative to enemies and to allies, a unit also has the option to attack, cast a spell, use an item, search (if adjacent to a treasure chest), or stay and do nothing, all of which end the unit’s turn. Some commands, such as equipping or dropping items, don’t count as actions, and the character’s turn is able to continue. The order of the turns is determined by the unit’s agility score and a random seed. Units can use offensive actions, such as physical attacks or offensive magic, only on units belonging to the other side and can use supportive actions, such as healing magic, stat-enhancing magic, and items, only on units belonging to the same side.
