Yardlings is a local multiplayer battle arena about vegetables in a garden!
In this game your goal is to gain control over the entire yard and you are competing against others.
You play as a hero, like a tomato - a strong unit - you can easily take out 2 or 3 small mushrooms, but you won't stand a chance against bigger groups of enemies.
That's why the key to win is to gather your own forces and tactically place your troops at the right places at the right times.
Free-4-all and 2v2 modes
AI controlled opponents in 3 different level (easy/medium/hard)
A short campaign mode
30 minutes to 1 hour gameplay
2 different maps types
over 10 different units
9 different special abilities
8 different player characters
You have a few options.
attack potted plants to claim them. pots will spawn units over time! this is the fastest way to gain a following
attack flowers in flower gardens to claim those gardens. flowers heal and help evolve units in range. they also shoot seeds at enemies that are in range.
flowers will also grow petals over time and become stronger with them. when a flower is fully grown it'll spawn very strong units! the flowers grow faster when there are more units guarding it, so consider stationing some units in a garden once in a while.
you can either decide to run around picking up troops and stationing them, but from time to time you'll also want to help out in a fight. don't worry, you'll respawn at your base garden if you get defeated, unless your base got taken over..
when helping out, you might want to use your special ability. dealing damage will fill your special meter. once it's full use your special ability! there are different types of specials and they can make a real difference if used right. to get these special abilities, pick them up at special ability plants!
