While the gameplay is simple and fast to pick-up, you'll need to strategically upgrade your characters - the knights attack single enemies for high damage, a ranger whose gun can blast enemies in the front row, the demolition specialist with bombs to stun all enemies, and a quirky wizard with a staff to rival Gandalf's to heal your troops.
