At last, a war simulation which you don't need a degree in Advanced Physics to play. Ancient Arts is an original and addictive approach to a genre which is all to often bogged down in tedious manouvering and unnecessary attention to detail. The combat sequences are simplistic, but highly effective while the strategy element is rewarding enough to tempt the most sceptical shoot-'em-up addict. [pages 74f]
It's an interesting idea with a combination of plus and minus points. On the up side it is easy to get addicted too and simple to play while the downers are that it's a little slow, 1 MB only and there's a lot of disk swapping to get through.
Die Grafik ist relativ detailreich, wirkt gleichzeitig aber etwas altbacken – daß die gute Fluglaune dennoch lange vorhält, liegt am leichtgängigen Gameplay, der stimmigen Soundkulisse und der liebevollen Ausgestaltung des Spiels, wozu z.B. auch eingestreute Kommentare historischer Persönlichkeiten gehört.
