Overview

Character Select Screen

Melty Blood: Acress Again: Current Code is the fourth installment in the Melty Blood series, a spin off to Tsukihime, and is available on Windows PCs. It contains many unique features, such as the different fighting styles called Moons. These styles determine a character's play style and movelist. Characters can build meter in order to activate Heat or perform EX moves. Heat allows characters to recover some health over time, this only applies to red health since damage dealt can be either permanent or recoverable. Once the circuit meter reaches 300%, Crescent and Full Moon characters enter Max mode which allows them to perform Arc Drive moves. By pressing A+B+C during Max mode, characters can enter Blood Heat which allows them to perform Last Arc moves, these are very powerful moves and are triggered by shielding against an attack. There are 36 different skins for each character

Moons

Crescent Moon Style

Similar gameplay to and shares the same movelist with Melty Blood: Act Cadenza. Characters can reverse beat and dodge attacks while in the air or on the ground. When getting hit, characters can circuit spark while in max meter mode. You can activate Heat after the circuit meter fills past 100% and can enter Blood Heat mode if the circuit meter fills to 300%. While in Heat, characters receive a 1.07 damage modifier and a 0.9 defense modifier while in Blood Heat characters receive a 1.13 damage modifier and a 0.85 defense modifier. Characters have EX shield and normal shield. This style has the most control over meter.

Half Moon Style

Like Crescent Moon Style, characters can reverse beat and dodge attacks while in the air or on the ground. They can only use EX shield. The circuit meter goes up to 200% but there's no way to activate Heat manually, once the circuit meter reaches 200%, heat will trigger automatically. During Heat, life slowly regenerates and circuit spark triggers automatically if hit.

Full Moon Style

Unlike the other two styles, characters cannot reverse beat. Like Crescent Moon Style, the circuit meter goes up to 300% but instead of being able to use Heat, you can charge the circuit meter manually by holding down A+B+C. Once the meter reaches 300%, you character can enter Blood Heat. Characters can circuit spark on the ground or in the air but cannot dodge. Characters cannot Ex shield, they can only normal shield and EX guard.
