The single-player campaign includes approximately 50 hours of gameplay. Players choose from one of four unique armies – each with their own units and abilities. The armies of the Gingerbread Man and Humpty Dumpty along with Red Riding Rood and the Three Little Pigs each have their own strengths and weaknesses. Players use powerful Champions to lead their armies. These super-fighters have the ability to gain experience from combat and advance in power over the course of the campaign. Players also acquire beings of incredible power called Pets to augment their forces. Different pets have different special abilities and advance in levels as they fight.

The visuals have a certain charm based on the game's source material. Graphics support is available for a variety of resolutions as well as an array of special effects. Particle systems and time of day lighting as well as shadows and clouds complement weather effects such as rain and snow.
