HoloWars is a Real-Time-Strategy Collective-Card-Game or how the kids call it: a RTSCCG.
HoloWars combines two classical game elements:
- Real Time Strategy (RTS) and Collective Card games. The RTS gameplay follows traditional routes but is condensed into two main elements: Farming resources and building factories, workers and tanks. This highly stylized RTS paradigm is than extended by a myriad of possible card combinations into a deeply tactical game.
- The Collective Card Game (CCG) comes into play when you use the same resources that your workers gather to expand on the battlefield to play cards at any time. Summon units in the middle of your enemies base, apply a healing effect to a unit and all allied units surrounding it or simply speed up all your units. Following a distinct rule set you can build a deck suitable for your play style. Focus on build speed, terrain advantage, healing, plain gun power or whatever you focus your cards on.
