Top Troops transports players into the colorful Kingdom of King’s Bay as two feuding brothers lead their squads into colossal battles of good versus evil. Players are challenged to merge and battle their way to victory, utilizing endless combinations of strategies to create powerful squad-based armies. Each unit type, from Ninja Moles to Imperial Elves, can be leveled-up and combined strategically to create the perfect army for any challenge. Every choice that players make will determine the fate of their conquests.

"Top Troops is a bold new step into the merge-and-battle genre that combines the best of both worlds with strategic gameplay," said Akshay Bharadwaj, Head of Socialpoint. "We invite players to unleash their inner commander by building powerful empires and leading assassins, necromancer rats, and mermen into combat. With its innovative gameplay and colorful universe, Top Troops is sure to appeal to fans who want the fun and excitement of tactical conquests."

"From the early days of our collaboration with Socialpoint to today’s launch, we are thrilled to finally bring Top Troops to life," said Yaron Leyvand, Executive Vice President of Games at Zynga.
