Demigod is actually something closer to a Diablo than say a Warcraft. Sure the screen is filled with hundreds of troops at a time, but those troops are directly under your control. Instead you control a demigod, and your goal is to turn the tide of the battle by helping those troops. There's a whole RPG meta element over the game as you earn experience for killing enemies and completing objectives. As you level up you'll unlock new abilities and even earn money to use to buy items for your character.
