Entering combat also causes the game to enter a special mode of operation where gameplay changes more or less, often entering an arena-like location or other greater detail representation of the location.
Name variations: battle mode, fighting mode
The first video game about Combat mode was released on September 1981.
This may include entering a special combat screen or combat field separate of the game world otherwise traversed in.
Any and all cases of automated battles do NOT count, regardless if they enter a special screen or playing field to show how it resolves.
This is NOT for simply pulling out your gun and holstering it whenever you like, nor entering a combat stance.
