At a base level, Undead Horde plays quite similar to other ARPG looters with minion management, and the player character's toolkit is reminiscent of that of the Diablo necromancer. It is all about minions, and you can resurrect just about anything. Various infantry are likely to be your bread and butter, but you may also raise animals, such as bears and chickens, should your heart desire so. Units have their own strengths, weaknesses, and command costs. You can only control a certain number of minions at a time, with the amount based on the the units on hand and their respective command costs. Minions can, and will die but there’s always fresh corpses around from your destructive wake.
