Golem Gates is a game combining elements of real time strategy and card games. The game was developed by the independent Laser Guided Games studio, founded by former Epic Games employees.
The action of Golem Gates takes place in a world destroyed throughout countless wars and the activity of aggressive machines constantly produced in the titular Golem Gates. The player takes on the role of the Harbinger, and his task is to defeat the Golems and discover the mystery of their long forgotten creators.
In Golem Gates the action is shown from the top-down perspective. The game mainly revolves around dynamic real-time battles. For each of them, players should prepare themselves properly by composing a deck of cards called Glyphs. With these cards, one can instantly summon various units, build fortifications and other constructions, create traps, and finally improve troops and provide armies with various buffs. As players progress, they gain new cards, thus expanding the range of their tactical capabilities.
Golem Gates delivers both single and multiplayer modes. For the fans of single-player experience, there is a story campaign, single scenarios, and a survival mode. The latter can also be played in the multiplayer mode, and is accompanied by battles based on PvP rules (which can be fought with other players or bots).
Golem Gates has high-quality 3D visuals. Particularly noteworthy are the detailed unit models and special effects accompanying battles against enemy forces.
