A funny screen you see if you don't have enough memory :)
Title screen
Intro. The character on the flag is "Shu", the name of one of the kingdom. Today it's used as a short name for province Sichuan, since their capital was Chengdu
Chinese history is truly fascinating
Okay, let's rock!!..
Beautiful sound/music screen!..
Viewing character stats and explanations
Creating a female (!) general with an idiotic name
Choose the scenario
Hey guys, don't fall of the stairs :)
Choosing your warlord. How about Gongsun Ce? At least he has an eye for fashion, what with the stylish headband
Each scenario has its own intro
Everything happens on this map!..
I decided to play as the despicable Dong Zhuo (read the book if you don't know who this is). I mean, just look at his face. What a greedy, mean bastard!..
What? You wanna piece of... err... what am I eating here, Harbin-style beef? Man, this is delicious...
For easier viewing, each province is numbered
Let's take a look at our generals...
One fine day, two riders were leaving Changan...
...and at our potential enemies!
Diplomacy screen
Preparing for war
Let's go, guys! Let's show 'em who is the true emperor of China!..
No, no, please don't get up! I just wanted...
Now boys, this here is the city we gotta conquer, you dig?
...to have a quiet conversation, enjoying this beautiful view
Lü Bu's statistics. Nothing will help you, Lü Bu! You'll go down, you backstabbing son of a bitch!..
Look, I was just looking at the sky... I don't actually care who wins this war... even if it's Shanghai or something
Ahh, the mid-war scenario, the richest on famous Three Kingdoms characters. Highlighted is Cao Cao, one of the most powerful figures of the time
The character on the flag is the family name "Cao". Using your sharp powers of deduction, you guess this must be Cao Cao's army
And here is the great warlord himself, in a stylish cut scene
Are you sure, my lord? You don't want to reconsider before it's too late?
Battle on the river side. Looks like I'm losing...
...indeed. Cao Cao won!..
Playing as Liu Bei, another famous warlord. He was cast as a somewhat of a "good guy" in the book, though history has its doubts...
I'm so lonely here, in the forest... Mommmmyyy---iieeee!!...
This is Zhuge Liang. Another very popular character from the book, known for his sharp mind. Maybe he was Jewish?... Maybe he changed his name from "Meshugge" or something
