This game has been developed in a single weekend for the Ludum Dare 43. The given theme was "Sacrifices must be made".
Should you sacrifice your barracks to improve your barricades or the other way around?
There are two ways to win in Pyrric Victory: attack and defense.
If you chose to attack you’ll have to build a lot of tough troops to annihilate your opponent’s Citadel. This means sacrificing your defense.
If you choose to defend your Citadel, you’ll have to build tough walls and powerful turrets. This means sacrificing your attack. You need to have less destroyed buildings than your opponent at the end of the counter.
