Age of Wonders

Post by StormSaint373 » Wed Oct 03, 2018 7:45 pm

A REALLY OLD game!

It would be nice to see it revived.

Had 12 races separated into 3 alignment tiers

Had about 10 units in each faction.

Good

Elves
Dwarves
High Men
Halflings

Neutral

Humans
Azracs
Frostlings
Reptilians

Evil

Orcs
Goblins
Dark Elves
Undead

Capture TCs and kill all enemies to win, or kill their leader!

3 tiers of TCs, determined what they could build.

I have found that this game is almost exactly the same in format... I found it enjoyable.

Well we have 3 top issues... 1 we don't have rights to the game. If we did make a copy of this game and submitted it on goggle play it would probably get struck down. Two, It needs more units. And 3 I really don't want to play this game.
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

The thing is that the extra units were

1. Summons
2. Captured building units
3. Your custom -made hero

But your point on the rights to the game do make a valid argument. Maybe permissions could be asked?

I think your right. I looked into it and I found some interesting things. One is that you cannot copy levels, art work or other in-game assets. But you can copy the game idea (what the game is about.) But we still have another issue. We need way more units, I'd say about 10 more to even put it on the chart. Do you have any naval units?
