Dark Frontier - How to Play

Control your heroes to defend the village against the incoming hordes.

Lesson 1: 

  • Click over the hero to select him.
  • Click to move your hero.
  • Your hero gonna attack any enemy that reaches his attack range (red circle).

If you click over an enemy, your hero will attack the enemy and then return to where the hero previously was. If you want to keep him there, click on the ground instead.

Do not keep clicking over the enemy, this won´t make your hero attack faster.

 Lesson 2:  

  • There are three waves, next wave is harder than the previous one.
  • You can level up your characters to make them stronger and also restore their health.
  • You know when your hero is ready to level up when you see yellow particles flying from him.


Wait for your unit attack before you move it or select a new target. 

On the top left it is shown the amount of XP you got killing the enemies. On the unit info there is the amount of XP you need to level him up 

Use the level up in your favor, this is a good way of restore your unit health if you don´t have any other way of heal him yet.

Lesson 3: 

  • You get stars by: Winning the round, don´t let the house get much damaged and not loosing any hero.
  • You get one gems for each star you received.
  • Gems can be used to purchase new heroes. 


Unique heroes change daily. If one hero is not good for you or is too expensive, try it next day. 

Lesson 4 (more advanced): 

There are basically 4 types of units:
  • Melee Units: Short range, good health and regular attacks: Warrior, guard, dwarf, etc.
  • Range Units: Long range attack, low health and weak attacks: Archer, crossbowman, etc.
  • Healing Units: Can restore other units health, but have low health and very weak attack: Healer, Cleric, etc.
  • Medium Range Units: Medium range, medium health and strong attack: Spearman, Halbeard, etc.
  • Special Units: Have special powers such as armor, area damage, poison or armor piercing attack: knight, ogre, wizard, etc.


Unique heroes:
 - Cannot be leveled up. 
 - You receive them as prized by killing bosses or bought using gems. 

 - They normally are cheaper than standard units, making them great on levels where you have low resources. 
 - They can have special powers making them great to special strategies.
 - They aren't the solution for all your problems, if not used right they can be worse than standard units.
 - A healer is normally useful when playing with unique heroes.

This post is a continuation of the Dark Frontier Tips - Part 1

Feeling powerful? Maybe it is time to get prepared to bigger challenges!

 Look for the above icons on the character description. They are special powers that can be used for you or against you. Learn what each of them do.
 Forgot what each character do? Check your heroes on the "i" button on the bottom of the screen during the round. In "Pause Mode" you can check the enemy stats as well.
 Fighting against a boss require special strategy. If you are smart they can get killed easily.
 Sometimes a level can be hard to win with the initial characters. Try to win other levels to unlock new powers, traps and heroes.
 Area damage is a strong weapon. Heroes with it can hit more than one enemy at the time. Enemies with area damage can hit several heroes with one single attack. Try to separate them to not get hit.
 Healers are weak and quite expensive, but sometimes it is better to have less soldier and not have to worry about their health. This is special useful against big bosses.
 This unity is loved by some and hated for others. He is cheap, slow and with low health, but have a strong attack and good range. Even at his first level can hit armored enemies. Can be a great line of defense behind some a stronger soldier.
Hitting from distance is always a good strategy. Learn how to use them and when not to use them. 
  • Archers are cheap, have a slower "damage per second" than melee units.
  • Crossbowman cause great damage and are great against armored targets., but have a very slow fire rate.
  • Longbowman: Great damage in a very long range. It has more health than other range units making him a strong unity against enemy archers. But they are expensive.
TIP for Advanced players: Try to select their target, this way they won't waste arrows on dying enemies.
Wizards are long range units that cause area damage that hits through armor. Making this unit great against armored bosses and hordes of enemies.

Have Fun!

Yes, this game can be really challenging, but once there is NO IAP all levels can be beaten. Don´t be afraid of trying.

Knowing how to use the "Level up" is a strong strategy to win. Not only it makes your units stronger, but also it restore the unit health.

Not all Unique Heroes work with you style of playing. Just wait to the next day to see if a new Hero can fit your needs.
They are great to save resources or win certain levels. But they are not always the best choice.

 This is a powerful tool, use it wisely.
 Traps can be deadly or totally waste of money depending of the level. Great use for them: Wolfs or other fast enemies.
 Learning what unit do and how they change on higher levels are great ways to win.
Some units have armor. The number shows how much damage is absorbed. 
Pay attention to the Armor Piercing icon.
Some units have Poison, if your armor is higher than the caused damage your unit won't receive the poison damage.

Each ways of playing has a different use for walls. Other never use it. Some levels can be easy to win using walls. Others can be harder, just try different strategies.

Good luck defeating the Hordes!
