Battles in Sudeki takes place in real-time. You control one of the four characters while the computer controls the rest. Tal and Buki are melee fighters whose primary attacks are timed button combos. Ailish and Elco are both long-range oriented fighters. When your in control of either Ailish or Elco the game shifts into a 1st person perspective to allow for greater accuracy.
Each character has his or her own Skill Strikes, which is basically a fancy term for spells. Both defensive and offensive Skill Strikes are acquired through the course of the game. Skill Strikes cost Skill Points to execute. Skill Points can be replenished by attaching certain items to a characters weopon or by drinking special potions. Spirit Strikes are an Uber version of Skill Strikes.
Outside of battles each of the four characters have special skills that can be used to solve puzzles and get past obstacles. Tal can push blocks around, Ailish can dispel walls and certain obstacles, Elco has access to jetpacks which acivate close to crystal clusters, and Buki who can climb certain walls.
