DescriptionMyth: The Fallen Lords is a Real Time Strategy game which pits the evil Fallen Lords vs humanity.
You must take control of archers, explosive-throwing dwarves, dependable infantry, and others to stop the horde of undead and evil from overrunning the last vestiges of good in the world. Battle plague-ridden corpses who detonate themselves in ground-shaking explosions, throngs of axe-wielding zombies, floating spectors who hurl poisoned spears at you, and quick-moving magical creatures armed with sharp blades. Live long enough and you will face the most powerful of the Fallen Lords.
Take control of the high ground and your ranged attackers will be able to shoot farther distances, but the enemy can take advantage of the same situation. Sometimes it may be to your advantage to let the forces of evil thin their ranks for you...
Go online and play vs other humans, using either side you wish, in many modes of play, including a game of capture the flag, but with a ball instead.
