The Japan-only Thousand Land can best be described as a combat map creation simulation game. Featuring cute little critters called APOs and their larger TELA cousins, the player's goal is to defeat all challengers while creating the best Geo-Slate map possible. You play one of a thousand challengers on .Geo, a virtual network, build your own map, and then challenge other .Geo users to a real-time battle. The winner of the battle gets a reward, which can then be used to buy new items to arrange and remodel on their Geo-Slate. The overall goal is creating the perfect map and climbing the rankings till you're number one.
