Description

Firefly Studios' Stronghold Crusader is the standalone expansion pack to the 2001 Stronghold. In Stronghold Crusader the player can play as either the legendary Richard the Lionheart or the formidable Saladin. A mix of real-time strategy and city-building games, the game's desert setting requires strategies adapted to the environment and its lack of water. There are 50 skirmish missions to be fought in sequence. The 25 units include assassins, archers and fire throwers, and (in something of an anachronism) allow for suicidal charges.

As with the original Stronghold, Stronghold Crusader includes a scenario and map editor. Multiplayer with up to 8 players is available via LAN or over the Internet.
