Summary

The best turn-based fantasy game for Amiga!

The Good

Everyone starts on a level playing field. You're a dragon lord with one dragon in a castle surrounded by a bunch of unclaimed towns. With your dragons, you can raise new ones, enhance the ones you have, raid towns to destroy, capture, or send them on missions. With your towns, you can grow your population, enhance them with potions, or cast a plague upon your enemy's towns. The basic gameplay is easy, but if you REALLY study it, you can make some very cool and original things happen in the alchemy lab by learning how to use the chart.

The Bad

Turn-based these days requires patient players. Also, if you're really good at it, you can totally slam other players...which is cool against the computer but not against your friends. If you're going to get the game, you'll need to have the alchemy chart at the very least to play it.

The Bottom Line

A very unique fantasy game that is legendary. It takes tactics, strategy and quite a bit of experimenting.
