The core concept of the game remains the same as the original - defend your fortress while attacking others. You can play either cooperatively or competitively, defending your fort from attacks with up to three other players. Winning requires speed and strategy, as you'll be forced to defend your stronghold by blocking fireballs with your shield while hurling your own fireballs towards your enemies and managing your troops, called Snoots. There are also offensive power-ups that you'll need to overcome your challengers and take down their fortress walls.
A quick look at the sinister nature of each of Warlords you'll face in the game - from the tree-hugging Restivo, to the rotund and fire-loving Groi, the snowman-exploiting Goelus, and even the balleticly inclined, yet entirely evil Tarorthane.
