WHAT DOES ACTION POINT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Action point

An action point, commonly abbreviated AP, is a point in games to determine how much action a player, unit, or video game character can do in a single turn. Within computer and video games they are predominantly used in the turn-based tactics genre. A major difference from hit points and magic points is that action points recover automatically over time in combat rather than with items as hit points and magic points are usually recovered. Any action consumes a certain amount of AP. A unit cannot execute an action if there's not enough AP. If the unit has zero AP, that unit's turn is over. The player however, may end the unit's turn early. When it is that player's turn again, AP is replenished. AP may be partially restored or fully restored, and in some games, restoration may bring the unit's AP over the maximum limit that unit normally has. Using the turn-based tactics genre as an example: ▪ Units, both the player's and the enemy's, are placed upon a map of an area. Both sides take turns moving every character they have at their disposal. ▪ When an AP system is in effect, both sides use AP. ▪ Say it is the player's turn.
