    Do you want to compete with other players? No problem choose between several unique game modes. I wanted to create a game which has the feeling of classic games like Battle Isle or Civilization, but I didn't want to create another war game in this “world war” genre.

    In Timbertales you will first have to create an army to fight with. Unlike other turn based strategy games you will not have to produce units in game. Its more based on a table top strategy game approach where you have to build up an army with a specific point limit before the game starts.

    When you enter the game we have a classic hex tiled map where you will have to move your units around the map and clear out different map objectives or destroy all enemy units.

    Every attack is handled instantly so you will see the results as fast as possible and you are able to plan your next steps immediately. We also provide special abilities for many units so you can make the choice for just attacking or using special abilities like heal or a more powerful kind of attack. There will be different play modes available for solo playing and of course multiplayer.

    Combat - The combat system is based on the system which is used in "Starcraft". This means we have different unit types and different attack types. The unit types are small, medium and large.

    The attack types are normal, piercing and breaking. If two types clashes each other the types are used to calculate the critical hit chance for the unit for example if a normal attack type is fighting against any armor type he will always have the standard 10% critical strike hit chance.

    But if an piercing attack type is fighting vs. a small armor type he will receive a 100% bonus which means he has a critical hit chance of 20%. Critical hits will be displayed with a bigger yellow number while normal hits are shown in white color.
