Description

Defender of the Crown: Heroes Live Forever is a "casual" remake of the classic hit, Defender of the Crown. Set in post-Norman Conquest England, Heroes Live Forever puts you in the shoes of a Saxon lord—with the ultimate goal of eliminating all rival lords and reuniting the kingdom.

Once again, the core gameplay consists of a territorial conquest game on a map, similar to Risk. Buy armies and garrisons made up of five different types (infantry, knights, crossbowmen, bowmen, and catapults) and fight tactical battles against your foes. Tactics cards can be won in battle or purchased with gold and then played in these battles, giving special bonuses that enhance your army or weaken your opponents.

Mini-games break up the conquest game and bring rewards of either gold or fame. These mini-games include jousts, archery contests, castle raids, princess kidnappings and rescues, and castle sieges. Of course, Robin of Locksley is still available to offer his assistance (up to three times) to Saxon lords, but beware: this time around, the Norman lords can call on the Black Templars for aid as well!
