Unique RTS game in that you don't directly control chracters. You do choose what buildings you want made, but after that, it's all about setting a gold reward in order to get your soldiers to explore, attack, or defend something.
The game is known for being really difficult, and that's true. It can get frustrating because after the few beginner levels, you are basically under a constant state of attack and need to always be rebuilding. Also, you have to constantly monitor your soldier producing buildings so more soldiers can be made after old ones die, and that is unnecessarily cumbersome.
I only played half the game(or less?) The first 1/2 was fun, but the second 1/2 got to difficult, and I had pretty much found out how to max out production on early levels so there was nothing new to do, but grind on. So I quit. Pretty graphics though.
