Players must manage their resources effectively to build and upgrade their cities, recruit armies, and research powerful spells. Each race has its own unique units, spells, and special abilities, adding depth and variety to the gameplay.
Combat takes place on a grid-based map, where players must strategically position their troops and use their spells to defeat their enemies. The terrain and weather conditions can also affect the outcome of battles, adding an extra layer of strategy to the game. Players can also use heroes, powerful units with unique abilities, to turn the tide of battle in their favor.
