The king of the land is dead at the hands of Viking invaders. You rise up to take your fathers place as ruler and prepare yourself to defend against further attack.
That is the basic idea of Bad North, a Roguelike Adventure Game for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Steam, iPhone, and Android released in summer 2018. The game has players planning strategically to take down Viking Invaders without a loss of their own personal army.
Tropes used in Bad North:
- Geo Effects: Archers can get greater distance with their arrows if they're placed on top of a mountain.
- Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Shield-wielding Infantry can block arrows from Archer units.
- Rain of Arrows: "Volley", the basic skill for the Archer class, bombards a targeted section of the map with arrows.
