Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Star Wars: Assault Team is a turn-based combat game involving card-battling elements, and takes players to locations from the Star Wars Trilogy.[5] Players must build a team of four individual "heroes" using cards they acquire. The team follows a preset path and encounter enemy forces which they must defeat. Each card has a passive ability (usually an attack or defense bonus) while some have a "charged over time" Special Ability. The game features a Tiered ranking system, and the attributes may be improved though Training Cards that are acquired while playing missions. Players must strategically assemble a four-man team for the missions, and use cunning strategy in combat to defeat their enemies.
