        • You can use the same type of character repeatedly as part of your army.
        • The magic is in finding the right mix of characters.

    • Tips
      • Quantity vs quality
        • Typically it is better to use more participants than to use fewer higher-powered army men.
        • Some enemies stun you after each attack. Having multiple lower powered fighters allows you to keep attacking in between their attacks even if some of your team members are stunned.
      • Melee vs range
        • Unless the opposing side has many archers you can often get a leg up on them by placing range attack archers & crossbowmen in your back column.
        • If the opposing side has many archers or crossbowmen your goal should be to take out their infantry as fast as possible so that your army can melee attack their range fighters.
      • You can save battle points across waves from within a level, but not across levels.
        • In the last couple levels saving a few battle points from early waves makes the final wave much easier.
        • Try to use all your battle points in the third wave of each level as you can not carry the battle points across to the next level.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like battle strategy games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
