Temple-based Sacrifice

TBS is a Turn-Based Strategy inspired by Advance Wars. Gods of the ancient days have awoken to a future of confused religions and high-tech mechanical beasts and they demand sacrifices! Lead four unique factions in skirmishes across 5 (6-ish) different maps, conquer land, sea and air. Sacrifice your units to unlock unique bonuses granted by the gods.

The gameplay is turn-based, each player having 60 seconds to complete their turn. Each unit can be commanded to move in its movement range by clicking it, then clicking on another tile. Movement over certain types of tiles is more difficult for some units.

After moving a unit, it may be commanded to take an action – attacking an enemy unit or razing/capturing a building. Possible actions are highlighted over their respective targets and are activated by clicking.

In addition to units, players also control buldings, some of which allow production of units or sacrifice of units to gain divine favour. These are activated by clicking the building, then clicking one of the options in the bottom-left of the screen.

The objective of the game is to capture the enemy Temple-Tron!
