Sweet and Salty Travels, often abbreviated to S&S Travels or SST, is a game created by Fanofkinopio, published on mobile devices for free, with in-app purchases. James and Mia, Fanofkinopio's two submissions from RudyTheRockstar's Fanon Customers Championship tournament will debut in this game. The game is part one of a two-part celebration celebrating 3 years since Fanofkinopio has joined FFCW (now known as Flipline Studios Fanon Wiki).
S&S Travels is an action role-playing game using touch controls, where characters attack enemies (predominantly from the Papa Louie games) with melee or ranged attacks of different elements that are weaker and stronger against other ones. Characters can also unleash special skills known as a Frenzy after filling up a gauge, which can severely damage enemies for a short period of time. The game is available through multiplayer as well as single player.
Characters are obtained through events, campaign or through summoning. Summoning follows a gacha system with three rarities of characters: 3 star, 4 star and 5 star. Players can summon once through a currency known as Crystals, where 120 crystals earns one summon and 1,200 crystals earns 10 summons. Summons can also be done through the use of Summon Tickets or Tenfold Summon Tickets. After 100 summons without a 5 star, a 5 star character will be obtained in the next summoning session.
Characters can be upgraded through a level up system (max level is 80) by defeating enemies or using shards as well as unlocking buffs by progressing through chains, where each chain enhances HP/Strength or upgrades a skill. A chain can only be unlocked in order and each adventurer has 50 chains. The last 5 chains can only be unlocked by using Star Triangles.
Weapons can also be crafted in the armoury. These can increase a character's might and often provide useful buffs to the user. They can be upgraded with shards.
There are 5 elements in the game: Fire, Water, Wind, Light and Dark. The elements form a rock-paper-scissors kind of element advantage, with fire beating wind, wind beating water and water beating fire. Additionally, light is effective against dark and dark is also effective against light.
