Build your legion
Nova is inhabited by numerous species; it's up to you to turn them into a legion.
Your fighters come to life
Each round, your fighters move, attack, and cast spells automatically as they battle against enemy creatures!
The outcome of the battle depends on which fighters you've chosen to deploy and the formation in which you've arranged them.
Your formation matters.
Each round, your fighters attack in the same formation. You can't
rearrange your formation, so plan ahead. A basic rule of thumb is to
deploy beefy tanks in front and squishy DPS in the back.
Over 50 unique fighters
Each fighter is unique. Fighters vary in attack & defense types,
meaning different fighters are effective against different types of
enemies. Some fighters have special abilities like AOE spells, auras,
and buffs & debuffs. Fighters also vary in cost; you get what you
Upgrade your fighters. Spend gold to upgrade a fighter into an advanced form, granting it more powerful stats & abilities.
Basic opening formations
Side Formation: Build your fighters on one side only.
|Strength||Your fighters will focus on the same targets.This makes them quickly eliminate targets, rather than weakening multiple ones.|
|Weakness||Enemies can surround you on three sides. Also, there’s little room for expansion.|
|Overall||A highly gold-efficient build, strong early, but can be tough to transition into late game. Good for aggressive strategies.|
V Formation: Build your fighters spanning the lane in a V layout.
|Strength||By making a "wall," it’s harder for enemies to surround you. You also have a lot of room for expansion,such as putting some ranged DPS behind, or tanks in front.|
|Weakness||Your fighters will tend to focus different targets,spreading out your damage. This may lead to weakning many targets, but killing only a few.|
|Overall||An overall balanced formation.|
Power Formation: Build a single expensive fighter, rather than many cheap ones.
|Strength||Plenty of room for expansion.|
|Weakness||Expensive fighters tend to be less gold-efficient than cheaper
fighters, so you’ll need to be prepared to spend more gold to clear the
same wave than if you massed cheap fighters. Additionally, you leave
yourself open to being surrounded and focused.
|Overall||Low margin-of-error, but has the potential for an incredibly strong late-game. Good for defensive strategies.|
