SwordFall: Kingdoms is a real-time strategy game with Risk-type elements. Use your turn to attack neighboring regions and move armies between captured territories. When you invade a territory or are invaded by an enemy, you will have the choice to play the battle or allow the computer to determine the outcome. If you choose to play the battle, you must try to get your units to the other side of the battlefield by sending them along several lanes as your enemy does the same. At the start of every turn, you're given gold, which is needed to recruit units and research technology.
