You control a unit of swordsman and battle against a large army of red warriors. You can also simply set up the battlefield and watch the blue and red units do battle against each other. The game features different modes which include conquest, king of the hill, siege a castle, as well as level bundles. The game allows you to either create your own custom battles using the custom battle editor. You can place the red and blue units in different locations around the battlefield, and choose your preferred terrain and conditions. You can as well settle to play the game modes which are randomly generated, bringing new plots with each new levels.
The game features structures such as castles and towers, with several melee weapons (arrows, swords, maces) and shields. Combat in the game is very basic and the only moves you can perform are swinging of sword/mace and raising of a shield to protect yourself from opposition’s attacks.
Since the game is still in its early stages, most of its features and gameplay are rough and imprecise. While the battles are impressive, units movements are slow and the only way you can tell if you have been hit is by constantly watching the health bar.
Aside from all these drawbacks, the game shows promises and with constant development and upgrades, it should be able to rival other poly games of its genre.
