Free necromancy battle game
Right Click to Necromance is a free game for Windows from developer Juicy Beast. The game makes you fight supernatural armies. You raise an army of undead soldiers by right-clicking on the corpses of deceased enemy troops.
Additionally, randomly generated AI-powered armies prowl the barren landscape. They have the same goal that you do, so while you try to grow your own ranks, you need to protect your units. For alternative options, check out Medieval and Stronghold 2.
Your goal is to evade armies that are more powerful than your own as you maraud around the terrain looking for victories. It doesn’t become boring though; sometimes weaker armies run away from you while others may rise to your challenge. You must click and hold the left mouse button to steer your army.
Similarly, more powerful groups will come at you when you’re already in a skirmish—that makes it tough to survive. These are great gameplay mechanics because dodging hostile armies helps to build tension. It's also worth noting that you can't revive enemy troops until every combatant in their unit is dead. Although it doesn't take too long to rebuild your army when it suffers losses, there’s no option to save your progress, which is disappointing.
When did Right Click to Necromance come out?
It was developed in 48 hours as part of the online-only Indie Speed Run 2015 game jam.
Is Right Click to Necromance on mobile?
No, Right Click to Necromance isn't available as an app.
Although it's a browser-only game, some browsers will let you install the page as an app when using desktop operating systems. If you prefer an app-like experience on your desktop computer or laptop, this could be a good option.
Right Click to Necromance is clearly not a finished game, which is reasonable given its origins. Some improvements we’d like to see include a health bar to show the current battle-worthiness of your army. Another nice touch would be the inclusion of a save function so you wouldn’t have to start fresh whenever you return to the game.
Our main criticism is that the AI doesn't seem too intelligent. There's no tactical element to the game so your troops simply attack the nearest enemy. Having said all that, it’s still an incredibly addictive game.
