How to Play: The ultimate goal is to conquer every continent in the Epic War World – but you have to start off smaller than that! You have to win the battles, before you can win the war! In each level, your army is pitted against the enemy in hand-to-hand ground combat. The objective is simple; Defeat all of the enemy creatures, and destroy their castle to win the battle. Before getting into the action, you must ‘arrange’ your army on the main map menu screen. Using your computer mouse or touchpad, Left Click on the ‘Arrange’ icon along the bottom of the game screen. This brings you to the Army Selection screen, where you choose your ‘Heroes’ and ‘Units’.
‘Heroes’ are 5 unique characters with very unique combat abilities. These are fearless combat champions who have the power of magic as well as awesome fighting skills. ‘Units’ are groups of smaller troops such as goblins and elves. At the start of the game, you can only choose one Hero and one Unit. As you progress through the game, you earn ‘Gold’ and ‘Mana’, which can be used to unlock more Heroes and Units. This bolsters your ranks during more difficult levels against larger enemy forces. To add Heroes and Units to your army, click on their icons on the right of the game screen – and move them to the designated slots on the left of the screen. All of the troops in the slots on the left are available for command during battle.
At the start of the first level, there is a detailed tutorial on how to control your troops. We recommend that you pay close attention to these instructions. The basic controls follow a point-and-click method. Click on the icon of the troops you want to command, then click on the area of the battlefield you want them to move to. They automatically fight once they come up against enemy forces. You can advance Heroes and Units individually, or send them all forward at the same time by clicking the ‘Assault’ Icon.
Each troop has a little Health Bar above them. If one of your troops is eliminated, they ‘Respawn’ and return to battle after a few seconds. The two main Health Bars in the top corners of the game screen correspond to the Health of the opposing Castles. March all the way to the right of the battlefield, and attack the enemy castle to reduce its Health Bar. Use the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard to scroll across the game screen. Once the enemy Castle is destroyed, you progress to the next level. However, if your own Castle is destroyed, it’s game over and you have to start the level again.
