Mechanics come from a simple problematic: how to control a group of characters in real time?
You play a flag bearer as LEADER of his army composed of different Soldiers types. They’re following you in a single-file line, we call this displacement Snake, in reference to the eponymous game.

It is a game about battle between 2 players mixing tactical and action. You fight in an arena and the goal is the same as in Chess, neutralize or eliminate the opponent LEADER.

LEADEN SKY BATTLE Gameplay is focused on tactical moves. Soldiers attack any close-by enemies but they need you as guide to earn victory. Depending on your army composition and the opponent one you will have to plan different strategies.

As LEADER you have the ability to gather mates. You can pick and lead them on the battlefield. Those Soldiers will follow you one after another and create a Chain. You can choose the number and their position.

During the battle you can lock your army in Formation to move it into a single block, like a regiment. This manœuvre is convenient to fight but slows your movements. In Snake you move faster but you also are more vulnerable. If your opponnent cut your chain he could steal soldiers.

You can also leave some characters on the board, they will not move until you pick them again but they will still attacking ennemies at range. It allows you to occupy the field adopting a defensive posture.

The choice of your soldiers, their position in a Formation and the timing of movements are the keys of mastering LEADEN SKY BATTLE.

You have the choice between 4 characters types to develop a strategy. Those soldiers are archetypes with specific abilities:

  • The SWORD is a fearsome melee fighter, his large range attack makes him very dangerous in front line. Together, several SWORDs can slash enemies like twigs.
  • The LANCE is a polyvalent soldier, his medium-range attack allows him to keep ennemies at distance. He can also pierce the enemy Formation to kill specifics targets, but also attack while being covered by the frontline.
  • The BOW is a sniper, his long range and accuracy can harass enemies before they can reach you. He is also very useful to occupy the field when you leave him alone.
  • The SHIELD is a true moving rampart. His two heavy shields are protecting him and all close allies from incoming attacks. Well placed in a Formation, he can make your army indestructible.

SNOKIA

This Mode is a tribute to the Nokia’s Snake. You are moving automatically and are not able to establish Formation and collisions are deadly. You begin with just the LEADER and neutral characters appears randomly on the battlefield. you can pick has many of them that you want, but if you grow too much be careful not to bite yourself!
