Defenders of Ardania is a tower defense game set in a fantasy setting. The plot premise is quickly told: the player's kingdom is attacked and needs to defend itself.

The basic gameplay mechanic follow the genre standard: enemies blindly attack in waves and are fend off by towers which were previously built by the player. However, in this variant the player also attacks the opponent: the player's resources can also be used to built troops. These resources refill automatically and whenever an enemy unit/tower is destroyed, but this is greatly accelerated when certain key areas on the map are in the player's possession. While the player can't control the units directly (they automatically choose the shortest way to the enemy base), one rally point (basically a waypoint) and an unlimited amount of bounties (marks a single unit/tower as priority to destroy) can be issued at a time.

Alternatively, the resources can be used to cast spells which either directly target enemy units or positively influence the own. Each race has eight towers and eight units to choose from. Tower can be upgraded twice by using resources and unit classes automatically upgrade when they received enough experience. When a class has upgraded enough, one hero unit of this class can be purchased at a time. It costs more resources, but is stronger and has a special ability.
