Summary

The FIRST Real Time Strategy Game ... in 1984!

The Good

Although the game only had three different army types, archers, barbarians, knights, the game required tremendous skill ... I wish I had this game still !!!

The Bad

The game only supported CGA ... !!

The Bottom Line

The first RTS game ever created ... command legions of archers, knights, and barbarians to conquer different war hero figures, like Sun Tzu, Ghengis Kahn, ... etc ...
