The Wraith Resurgence

Fiendish Formations

With a sudden increase in Wraith attacks, Aethia is feeling overwhelmed. It's up to you to deploy Faerieland's armies to be where they will be the most effective using her magically enchanted table.

To begin Fiendish Formations, click on the table on the right of the main Headquarters page:

Once the game loads, click the Play button to begin. You will be given a choice of stages, and there are a total of 8 stages for the game that will gradually unlock as time goes on. To move between stages 1-4 and stages 4-8, click the white circles at the bottom of the screen.

When you click to begin a stage, you will be presented with a checkerboard grid with some purple playing pieces on it. These represent the locations of the Wraith forces.

The aim of the game is to mirror the locations of the purple pieces on the opposite side of the board (the green area). Click a square once to deploy a playing piece, click it up to two more times to change the type of unit, and again once more to remove it if you accidentally click the wrong location. Once you have successfully mirrored the Wraith's locations, you will move on to a new playing board and repeat the process. Completing a board looks like this:

As you progress through the stages, new types of enemy unit will appear:

Fiendish Formations Units

Infantry

Cavalry

Artillery

Assassin
The Wraith Assassin appears on
your side of the board, and after a
set amount of time, will destroy
one of your units at random.

Decoy
Ignore this unit.

There are a total of ten rounds for each stage. You will gain bonus points for completing each board quickly, and at the end of the rounds your total points will be added up into a final score. You will be awarded a coloured medal depending on your score, and the goal is to get a gold medal for each day.

If you should fail to reach the required score for any stage, you can repeat them at any point. However, there are achievements for completing each stage on the day of release.

After that, continue following the instructions on our step-by-step walkthrough for what to do next.
