The Roulette Wheel is a core gameplay ability in God Hand.

Mechanics Edit

The Roulette Wheel system allows Gene to expend Roulette Wheel Orbs to unleash a variety of singularly powerful attacks, or otherwise generate a number of beneficial effects through the Godhand. Roulette Wheel attacks are often capable of instantly defeating lesser enemies, and otherwise are very powerful and high-damaging to both singular targets and in groups, at the cost of a very limited resource.

Gene begins the game with the ability to hold a maximum of two Roulette Wheel Orbs, and he gains the ability to add up to four more slots for a maximum of six by purchasing "Gold Plates".

The Roulette Wheel can be accessed by pressing ButtonR1, with ButtonR1 again to cycle through the wheel, ButtonCross or ButtonCircle to confirm the selected move, and ButtonTriangle to cancel. While the Roulette Wheel is open, time slows down for the player to give time to cycle through mid-fight, and also forces Gene to face his lock-on target. However, the Wheel also has its own timer that automatically cancels the menu if too much time passes, and will also be forcibly cancelled if Gene is hit.

Roulette Wheel Moves Edit

This section requires expansion.

Move Orb Cost Atk Str. Type Description Availability Prop. Notes

Trivia Edit

  • The slowing effect of the Roulette Wheel and its ability to force Gene to face his lock-on target can help the player to make quick turns and act accordingly, all without needing to actually choose a move.
  • The Typhoon Kick bears resemblance to the Hurricane Kick / Tatsumaki from the Street Fighter series.
