Play The Field – Lesson 1: Surrounding

I previously had a post talking about some strategy hints for Play The Field, but I thought I would make some videos to show some of the basics.

This first one illustrates one of the most basic principles of tactics – surrounding. The enemy has three units and you have enough money to purchase only three of your own. If you don’t place your units in a proper formation you have the risk of loosing the stage.

The simple solution is to create your three units so they can focus fire on one of the end enemy units, to take it out before it’s allies can help out. By the time they reach the battle it’s too late.
