Summary

Cave level of Master of Magic, separated and randomized.

The Good

Great take on Warlords/Civ/Master of Magic style.

The Bad

A bit awkward in some gameplay aspects.

The Bottom Line

The world's surface is no longer inhabitable. 8 races wage war in an enormous cave complex. Take Master of Magic, strip it of Surface and Shadow layers, make multiple cave layers - and you got the idea of what this game is all about. You'll feel right at home with the unit stack selection model used here. But time may come when you, desperate for territory, drill your way right into the enemy territory, leading to a near-instant defeat!
