And here is the game’s retailer description:
A story of dogs (Hundians) and cats (Felis).
Cross Tails is a lengthy strategy RPG featuring a story told from two perspectives and multiple endings. Train your allies, take on each stage, and guide your party to victory. The Hundian Side and Feli Side each have unique allies to fight alongside, as well as their own strategies.
- Develop Your Party with the Skill Tree – Each of the game’s 30-plus jobs have their own skill tree, which can be unlocked and upgraded by spending Job Points. The passive skills you learn can still be set even after changing jobs, so you can enjoy a wide range of battle styles by combining jobs and skills.
- A Huge Game with Over 60 Stages – The Hundian Side and Feli Side each have multiple endings, allowing you to experience different routes via multiple playthroughs. The game also offers four difficulty levels to choose from—if you are confident enough in your skills, try to clear the story on the hardest difficulty.
- Strategic Battles that Utilize Elevation and Terrain – Cross Tails is a quarter-view strategy RPG—you can utilize the varying elevations when you attack, or even strike from the enemy’s behind. Utilizing terrain effects is also key. Use magic to strike a group of enemies at once, push the enemy back with knockback attacks—this is a strategy RPG at its finest. Respond to each move as it happens and show off your resourcefulness.
