It’s time to lead from the front – Charge!
How to Play: The goal in each level is to defeat the entire opposition army. Like your own army, the opposition has numerous small infantry-style creatures, then one or more ‘Boss’ characters that you have to eliminate to progress. Before you begin the battle, you have to select your ‘Hero’ from a choice of three – Viegraf the Red, Queen Etheriea, or the Skull Knight. Each Hero is immensely strong, has different attributes, and is appointed the leader of your army. After that, you have to add ‘Units’ to your army. Units are battalions of smaller creatures, much like front-line troops. Using your computer mouse or touchpad, click on the ‘Formation’ icon along the bottom of the game screen. Add Units to your battle line-up by Left Clicking on their icons (you can unlock more Units as you progress).
Once battle commences, point-and-click using use your computer mouse or touchpad to control your troops. Click on each member’s individual icon along the bottom of the game screen, then click on the area of the battlefield that you want them to advance (or retreat) to. Scroll across the battlefield from left to right using the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard, or by hovering the mouse along the sides. You can send troops forward in individual Unit groups, or altogether, by activating all of their icons at once. Complete each level by eliminating the entire opposing army, including the big Boss character. Add new unlocked Units to your army after completing each level.
