Elementale Royale is a round-based strategy battle game about quick wit, fast reaction and clever planning. Use the four classical elements on both offense and defense to damage your opponent while keeping yourself protected. But be careful - you only get to use each element once per round, and you have to balance attacking and blocking while keeping track of the field to not get countered!
