Hothead Games’ newest title, Mighty Battles is now available worldwide following a pre-registration campaign and a soft launch phase. It’s a Clash Royale-like military game where each player takes a more active role. Players can of course deploy troops as they attempt to destroy their opponent’s base, but they can also use their machine gun turret to directly attack their enemies troops and base. The idea is similar to that of Tom Clancy’s ShadowBreak, which combines lane based strategy, card collecting, and sniping. Mighty Battles’ military themed units and cards include grenadiers, flamethrower troops, tanks, and more.
Perhaps the biggest thing that sets Mighty Battles apart from the competition isn’t the turret mechanics, but the way troops are summoned. While most games in the genre (including the recently released South Park: Phone Destroyer) use a constantly replenishing energy system, this game mixes it up. While units are still summoned using what is effectively energy, that energy is obtained by killing enemy units. This adds a layer of strategy that isn’t present in many similar games.
Hothead Games is known for the Kill Shot and BIG WIN franchises. The former is comprised of Kill Shot, Kill Shot Bravo, and Kill Shot Virus. The latter includes BIG WIN Football, Basketball, Hockey, Racing and Soccer. They are also currently squad-based shooter Hero Hunters which is in early-access in some markets.
