Description

Armageddon Empires is a turn-based science fiction strategy game with cards. In the year 2025 makes contact with two warring alien factions. The aliens turn the earth into a thermonuclear furnace and 20 years later leave the earth to another war front. 300 years later this game start on what is left of the earth.

The game plays on earth and features four different factions. Humans that survived the Armageddon, mutated humans and remnants of both alien empires: the Machine Empire and Xenopods. Each faction features unique set of cards which determines which units, heroes, facilities and attacks can be performed during the game.

Like Magic the Gathering each player has a deck which determines the actions a player can perform during a turn. The cards come completely free, so no additional expenses have to be made to buy additional cards. Unlike Magic, Armageddon Empires also features a hexagonal map which shows the location of facilities and units. When units enter the hexagon of an enemy unit combat initiates. Combat is resolved by clicking on cards of units in the battle to activate their abilities.
