Duelyst for WWW is a multiplayer-oriented turn-based battle strategy game. It's free-to-play, containing a system of microtransactions. It was developed by Counterplay Games, led by an experienced developer - Keith Lee, previously the main programmer of Resistance: Fall of Man and three installments in the Ratchet & Clank series. Above all, he is the main producer of Diablo III.

Story

The story is set in an independent fantasy world which does not resemble Tolkien's Middle-earth in any way. Instead, the game world is influenced by various settings - including mythologies and different concepts of a creator. As a result, the players receive a stylistically original game world. Duelyst for WWW tells a story of a large conflict between five powerful countries. The game focuses mainly on the battles between players, thus the game does not feature an extensive storyline or a story campaign as such. Nonetheless, the rich history of the fictitious world is depicted through location descriptions, biographies of characters and old legends they reminisce.

Gameplay

The gameplay in Duelyst for WWW consists of turn-based battles during which, the player controls a small squad fighting the enemy on the battlefields covered with a square grid. The player recruits their group members from among 300 characters having their own unique skills. Additionally, the gameplay is diversified with an extensive system of spells, and unique magical artifacts. Special emphasis was put on the tactical aspects of the game - subsequent victories require the player to position their squad members appropriately, predict enemy moves and put the warriors' skills to the best possible use. Despite that, the gameplay is relatively fast-paced - the game is designed in such a way that an average battle lasts from five to ten minutes.

Technical aspects

Duelyst for WWW has nice and colorful retro-styled visuals. Relatively simple, colorful locations have been inhabited by pixelized character models with modern visual effects and fluent animations.
