You soon learn that the challenge is deciding the order of enemies to attack. If you go for one that has a comrade nearby they will attack you back and kill you. You have to attack on each of your moves, and some enemies have more than one life. It develops into a complex puzzle game that requires clear thinking and strategy.
As you get better at the game you can notice which enemy types are slower or which you can goad into running at you. In this way you work through different eras of foes - Norse, Samurai and so on. You are awarded stars for how quickly you complete the level so there's plenty of reason to go back and try again to improve.
