The Dawn of Flames gameplay is similar to most games. It features elements like the Weapon Triangle, Bonus Damage, Skills, and different classes and stats. When playing the game, it's split into two types of fighting. The first kind is thinking of strategy in battle and moving units yourself. The second is planning tactics out first, then sending the soldiers to fight. Both ways are great.
When fighting, the terrain andland have disadvantages for certain classes. For example: Riders and Mounted Knights have disadvantages on cliffs.
What makes this game unique to to some other games is how many units you can use in battle. In a fight, you can sometimes choose up to 40 units in one battle. Another cool thing is the fact that soldiers can switch weapons midbattle.
The chapters go automatically on to the next and keep going. There is no map like in some games. If you go to the next chapter, you have to choice to exit the main story and go to the captitol of Midraln, the main country, or continue. When returning to the capitol, you can shop in 5 different locations: The Armorey, Medicine Shop, Magic Shop, Stat Boosting Shop, or Items Cart.
