Game Instructions

------ Note that Multiplayer is the only game format active this weekend -----

For in depth information on how to play, see the learn to play page:

If you just want a quick summary:
- Build a team by selecting which three characters you want to take into battle.
- Play is turn based. Each of your characters gets a move command, and either a basic attack or a skill. You can command them in any order you please. Once you have finished, play switches to your opponent for their turn. Play continues in this way until either the maps objective is complete, or a team is dead.
- Victory conditions differ depending on the map but killing the enemy heroes will always do the trick.
- Each turn you will gather 'Mega Energy'. When your bar hits 100 one of your characters can unlock a 'Mega Skill'. These are often incredibly powerful, and can turn around a losing game.

Ancients: Secrets of the Shroud

Version 3.0.0

by Voulk
First published on 12th December, 2015

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- << I'm having trouble with the arcade.

Multiplayer turn based strategy game in the vein of Disgaea and Final Fantasy Tactics, except this time you're playing against real people! Command six different characters, each with a unique playstyle. Show off your ability to out-smart, and out-play the opposition when the chips are down.

Ancients takes place in a parallel universe where a land similar to Ancient China has come under the spell of magical beings called 'Spirits' who have banded together into factions, determined to lay a stake to the land on which cities have long since been built upon. Strangely, some human men have started to join them. Rebels at first glance, but could it be that simple?
