Description

FireFly Studios' Stronghold is a combination of a building simulation (like SimCity) and a real-time strategy game. The player can build and conquer castles, populate lands with his peasants and defend his country from invaders. The game has two principal modes, simulation and invasion. In simulation, the player just builds castles and villages, without troubling himself with warfare. In invasion mode, one has to use tactical combat to defeat his enemies. The opponents are Duc de Puce, Duc de Beauregard, Duc Truffe and Duc Volpe, also called "the Rat", "the Snake", "the Pig" and "the Wolf", respectively. They all have different personalities and styles of combat, with the Wolf being the toughest adversary by far.

Christmas shopping reference

There is an interactive voice in the main menu that reminds the player of Christmas shopping 10 days before Christmas.

Variations on different markets

The German release has the campaign storyline set in Germany instead of England. Some versions of the game also have differences in the menu interface and the Pig's appearance (sometimes his head is covered).
