  • Publication number: 20210178277
    Abstract: A non-transitory computer readable recording medium has stored thereon instructions to be executed on a computer providing terminal devices with a battle game in which users each operate a unit. The instructions cause the computer to perform the steps of: determining a unit parameter of each of a plurality of units, group information being associated with each unit and indicating a group, among a plurality of groups, to which the unit belongs; deploying the units on a field, divided into regions, in the battle game; varying the unit parameter of a first unit on the field based on the group information associated with the first unit and the group information associated with a second unit on the field, the second unit having a predetermined positional relationship with the first unit; and conducting a battle between the first unit and other units using the varied unit parameter.

  • Patent number: 8550889
    Abstract: A display control section (72) controls a display unit to display an image on which a first axis corresponding to first information about a situation of a game and a second axis corresponding to second information about a situation of the game are set. A receiving section (74) receives an operation for specifying a position or an area in the image. A first condition relating to the first information and a second condition relating to the second information are acquired based on the results of reception by the receiving section (74). A game-character control section (84) controls the action of the at least one game character in a case where the results of determinations of whether or not the first information and the second information about the current situations of the game respectively satisfy the first condition and the second condition are predetermined results.
