Autoplay and Autoloot are two gameplay features of Taichi Panda that are both convenient for casual gamers. Autoplay allows players to auto-fire their main attack, which can be crucial on the path to victory against an otherwise superior opponent.

Although Taichi Panda can lag at points and sometimes load slowly, its animation style is beautiful and impressive, especially for a game on a mobile platform.
