Unlike other strategy games you aren't building troops to fight in a war. Rather, you assign and train actors to fight in your own TV Show. To get started you establish a studio then assign actors, who each have special traits that relate to their colour-coded roles.
As you progress you take on different episodes that require battles with groups of villains, sometimes followed by a giant enlarged monsters. How well your actor team does in the episode results in a final rating that affects your fanbase and revenue to improve the studio and upgrade equipment. How you perform in each episode will determine the direction of the narrative.
As in the Power Rangers show, the characters can gain the ability to transform and recover health. You need to plan attacks as a team to help each other during battle. This enables you to reach further and deal harder attacks. If you combine powers you can increases ratings by destroying the monster of the week.
