A FAST-PACED STRATEGY GAME, MIXED WITH RPG
Jeff Stobbs and the demon Naz T Peasawerk are becoming increasingly powerful and their aim is to take over the World of Twelve. In order to stop them, players will have to fight hordes of bloodthirsty monsters in epic battles which will put their strategy skills and reflexes to the test.
In DOFUS: Battles, the player manages an army, composed of a dragon and twelve heroes representing each of the gods from the World of Twelve. Each hero possesses his own unique spell (an offensive or a supportive spell). Their characteristics evolve as the adventure unfolds and the player has the possibility to upgrade their equipments to make them more powerful. Animakhal, the dragon invoked by the gods, has a very particular ability: by cloning heroes, he creates soldiers who can be used to fight the monsters.
