TBS genre iconFantasy style iconyear 1994 icon
Another truly great game. Master of Magic is the first turn based 4x4 fantasy game released in 1994. We have witness a lot of remakes and titles similar to MoM, and the fans are always unhappy. But this is not because the new games are bad, it is because this game have real magic in it :)

Here on the screen is one versatile army of trolls and a hero. Trolls can be trained in special neutral cities after conquer.  They should make haste to defend that city with crawling around Draconians. We have one city with yellow and blue crystals in its radius. A gold resource that is not harvested and mithril(just above the left most city). One sorcery and nature node.

Master of Orion 2 is truly one of the greatest games for all times. I vote it to be included in future history books. Also this game, along wit some others, inspired me to undertake my idea to create fun education games. I'm far from creating such wonder of course. Many years after I have played it for the first time, i realized that I know a lot of names of the explored stars by our astronomers. So practically this game is also educational.

Panzer Corps - The Final Batle

TBT genre iconTBS genre iconModern style iconyear 2011 icon
When I first saw this game, I hardly believed it. The same old style turn based hex strategy with amazing 2D graphics for high resolution monitors. Panzer Corps is a joy for the eyes for all Panzer Genral fans.

Here is the last mission in the first original campaign (The game have a lot of DLCs after it initial release in). We have good number of Rail Artilleries. It may seem a little odd for them to be in the front line, but it is part of the plan. The 3 camouflage tanks are the best tanks possible for the western side. The Russian T tanks though are not to be underestimated. If the game become difficult, just develop a lot of tanks. Make sacrifices to keep the leveled tanks alive.
