Game Boy Advance
Fast Money and Levels:
When in a chapter with both a shop, where you can buy potions, and an arena ( Like chapter 5 ), send the character you want to lvl up to the arena, and send one of your riders to the shop to buy potions. Let the knight provide the fighting person in the arena with potions. The fighter gains XP and you gain money. Repeat with all characters for the best results!
Control Your Enemies:
In any chapter if you have a mine give it to an archer or other weaker units. Next place the mine in the space that you think the ememy is going to attack from. When the enemy is taking damage from the mine turn the game off. It will resume when the enemy is taking damage. After that you can control the enemy for one turn. In this turn you can make the chapter easy by making the enemy units discard their weapons.
Fix Items Instantly:
Have an enemy Thief steal the item you want repaired then steal the item back.
