Bad North is a rogue-lite strategy game where you fight on a grid with groups of soldiers in units that you can move around during battle. Bad North is specifically a real-time strategy game, which means the only pause you’ll get from it is the pause menu. You change where your soldiers are on the fly, in order to win. You start on a randomly generated island, with only 2 units of soldiers being given to you. Every island has a certain amount of houses that you must protect. Each unit only has 9 soldiers, with one being the commander. If all 9 die you lose the unit for the rest of the game.
