About BattleForge Game
BattleForge combines the collection and deck building of a trading card game with the action and immediacy of a real-time strategy game. Battles are fought across 3D landscapes, viewed from a medium-zoom isometric perspective by default. The graphical style is simple, colorful, and expressive, with a variety of landscape types and plenty of distinct special effects for the spells and powers in each of four magic types. There is no base-building or unit development in the game. The only resources required to control units and spells in battle are energy generators and orb-producing monuments. With enough energy and the right type of orbs in their control, players can instantly summon units, build defensive towers, or cast powerful spells.
