In Overlords, two players command their armies consisting of soldiers, generals and a overlord. The game is a strange mix of Real Time and Turn Based: a turn consists of a set amount of time in which the players simultaneously move their units. So within a given turn, it's up to the player's fast thinking and dexterity skills to capture a certain location before the other. After the time limit, the turn ends and units fire.
The game comes with 12 different battle fields, of which the game randomly selects one. A short game last app. 1 hour.
