This is a real-time strategy game (RTS) in which players assume the role of a "Skylord" who commands an army of creatures to aid the mortals of a magical world. Players summon troops and mystical creatures (e.g., golems, the undead, trolls, minotaurs, dragons, giant tree creature) from a deck of collectible cards to battle for territory and monuments. Battles are viewed from a top-down perspective, with units using magical spells, ranged weapons (e.g., arrow attacks), and close-range combat (sword and axe fighting) to attack enemy forces. Some enemy units emit colored pools of blood-like liquid when they are defeated. Profanity (e.g., "sh*t") can occasionally be heard in the dialogue.
