If you're unfamiliar with the Atari classic Warlords, then perhaps this new video showing you how to be a successful warlord might help, with its three simple steps to defending your castle against opposing warlords on the field of battle, where fireballs bounce all over the place.
Step 1: Protect your stuff. Simply move your shield around to deflect projectiles and prevent them from damaging you castle walls. This is the crux of Warlords and integral to winning or losing a battle. Step 2 involves commanding your Snoots, who are your little minions that you can direct to capture control points and power ups, as well as making them repair your castle walls should they be missing some bricks. They're in infinite supply too, so don't worry about expending a few Snoots to win.
Step 3 is straight out of Conan the Barbarian's book. It's crush your enemies, which involves a bit of strategy, tactics, skill and dexterity to efficiently use your Snoots and ensure that the fireballs find their way towards your opposition's battlements. Easy peasy.
