Oh man. Has anyone else played this game? It's a truly awesome 4X/TBS/RPG from 1995.
I've been playing it for a while now, and it's really fun. If Elemental turns out to be a more advanced version of this game with better graphics, then it'll be the best game ever. Because, you see, the graphics aren't that great.
The non-deluxe version can be downloaded for free here (legal), but if you an manage to get hold of the deluxe version, then get that one instead. It's a lot better.
This game basically works like this (pretty standard for this genre, but it's so well-made):
You decide what kind of map you want; a randomly generated one, or a pre-made campaign. In the deluxe version, you can choose different "tilesets" and change the look of units, which makes each round a bit more varied. You start with one city, and then you conquer neutral cities and forts scattered around the map. The enemy AI does the same. You also have a hero that can explore ruins and dungeons, gaining levels and finding phat lewt. Then you kill your enemies or win through diplomacy. It's like advanced chess.
Sounds like I'm advertising here, but seriously, if you like these kinds of games, then check it out. It's awesome.
Because it's so old, you might have to run it through DOSBox.
