I think it sounds like a pretty sweet idea. I can't see it being a fully
fleshed out game as much as a part of a game or a flash / mini game. Would
it be more of a puzzle game to see if you can defeat the hoards in time or
with the set amount of units? Would it be more of a full war game with a
story where you conquer cities? I think it's a good starter idea.
