As you may already noticed i like to give a reference to Microprose games. Previous posts covered masterpieces like UFO: X-Com and Civilization II . And i’m doing that on purpose. Games of the past primarily relied on solid and very high-quality storylines. Back in the day processing power of computer was quite limited and developers can’t offer breath-taking graphics. So they have to use head to output quality entertainment product.
Seen marvellous UFO X-Com ? So, here is another masterpiece by Microprose then. In my childhood i was obsessed by Civilization I , which can be played in plain DOS only. Game graphics was very pixel sketchy and forced the brain to complete imaginary world by myself. Many sand was spilled across the sand-glass. There are VI parts of the game to date! Second part of the game was released back in 1996.
UPDATED ON: 2022-02-28 Another quality game from my childhood. This time, turn-based tactical combat. It’s addictive game-play coupled with stunning atmosphere make it so great. Emotive Adlib FM music bring up even more intrigue to classy style of this masterpiece. Some gameplay videos for deeper immersion. INTRO MISSION ORIGINAL OST PLAYLIST XCOM LEGACY OST PLAYLIST Heavily inspired by original one, not those orchestral epic crap. Also you should definitely check open-source remake of the original game.
