fun little game although it has several flash games that have the same mechanics and do better

The game is also very cute 7/10

Nice assets! Where do you find them? Thanks for reply


A really awesome game! I love the art-style and it's really simple to get into and understand all the mechanics and such. I've found that once you scale up in difficulty, the rate of the oppositions production gears up which really makes you consider whether to go for a early rush or hang back and set up your economy. A awesome game, and would love to see more features/maps added in! Maybe even some maps with more than two players?

I LOVE it!

Gives me partially a similar feel to ROYALS.

by the way, right now your website can't be reached.

I am really happy to see people playing our game and best of all, making videos :) I watched here (every 30 min).. a tip: the game does not gratify units in the same position (in the same position, all units receive the same damage, then 50 archers against only 5 horseman will be slaughtered).. In any case you understand the objective of the game and had great fun.. thanks for playing :)

about the site.. really.. we didn't have time to work on it ..

Understandable! You could just link to your itch.io profile page while you keep making awesome games :D

Hey, I can assign this video on the project page?

i'd be honoured!
