Taking a slight glance at it, not many would probably acknowledge that strong CCG element what Spry Fox is offering, as gamer seemingly being provided only with that defense strategy war. Things isn't even clear early on, when players are taken into that first step in Highgrounds, which is an introduction of how to play that outing.

Checking out and analyzing opponent's move might be rather more difficult at first since it's not as vivid as in normal card games.

Just as it was already explained, the battle system on this title is basically a turned-based one where each parties takes one move at a time, so it's very important to chose the right warrior in an instant.

Basically, gamer must maintain the HP of their city as that's what ultimately being attack by enemies during every showdown. In every turn, the party that won are decided by the attacking points they resulted, so if your team have higher attacks, they won't just hurt enemies warriors, but also attack the opponent's city. A very interesting and tactically driven battle indeed and it's not getting any easier each stages, even luck is sometime needed for gamer to won their challenge. However, with the right approach and tactics, it's still something that can be manageable without having to cash out any real money.

Being a simple browser-based game, Highgrounds isn't offering any fancy 3D modern graphic, as its being developed with flash system that looked similar to clay animation with nice surrounding setup and also pretty fine characters' design. Each of the warrior have different and characteristic visualization, so there's no trouble in checking things out during battles. Aside from nice looking visual, this outing also provides some interesting back ground music, which are actually a very RPG like with that classic/kingdom kind of nuance.

The game control is far from complicated as gamer can just use their mouse to basically control everything in that outing.

Not being setup as Facebook game also avoid that long delays that players often face due to losing energy bar or stamina. Basically players can keep on finishing their mission in any kind of situation until they won or suffering a disappointing defeat.

Highgrounds really brought tons of fun gaming element into one, making it a really interesting outing to play with, even for those who are not that common yet with CCG or strategy defense kind of outing. Having such a nice, cute and warm visual along with friendly gaming atmosphere simply triggered strong attraction for both old and new players. Although things are not all smooth and easy, but things can be easily learn during the battle, since everything are being arranged in a non-serious manner. Although there's the usual option for real cash usage, but players can simple survive without having to use it as they can just purchase stuffs with the in-game currency that they earned.

Overall, this outing from Spry Fox is an entertaining free to play browser based game that successfully combined two different gaming themes into one unique experience.
