8-Bit Hordes

The Hordes are Coming!

8-Bit Hordes is for anyone that enjoys RTS games but felt overwhelmed by complicated game mechanics and mysterious unit controls. The game is the follow-up to 8-Bit Armies, replacing the tanks, choppers, and infantry of the latter with wizards, warriors, and dragons. Two factions are at war–the Dark Orcs along with their monstrous allies and the Lightbringer alliance of humans, dwarves, and elves. With hours of solo and co-op gameplay included, there’s something here for everyone! There are also 12 co-op missions and 10 maps for multiplayer and skirmish modes.
