The game's combat takes the form of turn-based RPG battling that balances mana management with powerful abilities that deal damage to enemies, support your allies, and inflict and cure status effects. Conquer two single player campaign modes, climb the ranks of the game's multiplayer leaderboards, and challenge friends to customized matches. Place walls, guards, traps, and orbs in your base to create challenging puzzles that defend your treasures from opponents.
