David, your usual host, has taken a seat over there somewhere for the moment, so that gives some of the rest of us a chance to say hello.
As development finally wraps up and we start putting forward our game for approval and release, it’s important that everyone has some idea what they’re in for. So naturally, a gameplay video was in order!

So you know about Wizard Wars, but who are the Wrorcs? Wrorcs are the pig-like monsters that want nothing more than to smash, loot and otherwise cause havock. The troops themselves come in different sizes.
Scouts are the lowest rung of Wrorc society, being much weaker than their taller brethren. However, what they lack in brute strength, they make up for in speed. Scouts are nefarious little creatures in that they like to use the larger Wrorcs as shields. Quite often a few of them will slip through while the archers are focused on the rest of their tribe.
Wizard Wars is a Tower Defense game for Windows Phone 7 and Dugong Games’ first title.
Using towers containing elemental wizards, you must defend your castle gates from the savage Wrorcs. In the screenshot below they’re represented by the disembodied heads with saucepans.
