  • Publication number: 20200384365
    Abstract: To eliminate or simplify routine operations in event processes for battles and the like that occur during a game, without negatively affecting the enjoyability of the game. In the course of advancing a game by sequentially performing repeatedly-occurring routine event processes, an individual input step for accepting individual inputs of user operations for each of a plurality of objects to be processed appearing in a routine event process, and a batch operation input step for accepting a single batch completion operation for processing the plurality of objects to be processed in a batch are executed. When all of the plurality of objects to be processed have been processed by a batch operation input unit, the event process is considered as having been performed and the game is advanced. The batch completion operation is an action such as tilting or shaking an information processing terminal or inputting noise via wind pressure.
