HOTAR is an RPG about fighting bosses and arming your soldiers making them stronger and more dangerous. You will have to figure out the correct tactics and also get the right gear (e.g. some which provides you a certain resistance to a magic school) to be able to defeat a boss. If you enter a dungeon, the configuration of your party may also be crucial for your success. Different character classes offer different abilities and spells which you might need to control and defeat your enemies but also to heal and strengthen your own group members.
This game feels very much like an MMORPG with the difference that you can control all the involved characters by yourself. During battles the game can be paused so you can give orders to your people e.g. to use a spell or to move so you have enough time to control even the largest groups.

If you already have an older version of HOTAR, you can simply replace the Hotar folder with the new one. This way you should be able to use your previous configuration and your saved games.
