Archfiend VS Smash N' Grab is a mixture of in your face round after round smash mouth gameplay, with the randomness of a Leader that finds new opportunities in every round. Archfiend is often refereed to as a drunken master style approach to gameplay and strategy. Adaption, as well as the ability to manipulate multiple ability triggers in a round. Archfiend has a playstyle that is equally challenging to explain, master, and play against; as it is gratifying to master and conquer against.VIEW IN SHOPVIEW IN GAMECRAFTER
