Summary

An early version of Heroes of Might and Magic!

The Good

This is a very cool turn-based fantasy-strategy game!

You decide which of the eight master cities to start in, and away you go. Each city has advantages and disadvantages, of course! Some cities are well-defended, but that just means they are difficult to get out of and conquer surrounding towns, getting them to churn out more gold and armies for you.

Other cities are poorly defended and make weak armies, but there are other cities nearby that you can quickly conquer and make your own. Still others make really tough armies, but at a slower rate, so you can't move at such a fast pace...

And then there are the ruins that can give your heroes special powers, or add demons and devils to your army of Orcs, wolf-riders, archers, or trolls... *sigh* I do so miss having a DOS-based Operating System.

The Bad

It was always the same dang map. And it was tough to win if you didn't start with the right town!

The Bottom Line

A very nice early fantasy-strategy game. No complaints about it at all.
