Highborn combines two strategy games in one. Players move forces around an overhead map to secure spells and combat support, then dive into 3D combat to deploy those advantages against an unsuspecting enemy. All the fun and fighting is set against an irreverent take on the classic good-versus evil tale, filled with wacky heroes, witty dialogue and wild assumptions.
Highborn also features casual, round-based multiplayer via Facebook, making it a mobile strategy game that’s perfect for anyone looking for an intelligent, tactical experience without the frenetic play of a traditional RTS.
