Dwarfs?! Dwarf!

Wizardino | Dec. 21, 2012 | Review of Dwarfs!?

A very very very funny game. In Dwarfs?! the player, the leader of a dwarfs outpost must, obviously, digs to expand his realm. The more interesting feature of the game it's that the player cant directly control the dwarfs, but only put on the terrain some arrows to indicate them where to dig/go. In additions on the map there are some "black zone", and the player cant see what is hidden there (water, treasures, lava...): the only way to discover it it's to send a dwarf, but if you break the wrong wall and free lava in your tunnels...well it's not fun. Besides the "main" game mode there are some minigames like a Tower Defense sistem, and various challenges (for example dig XXXX tiles in 5 minutes) that adds variety to the game About me a Must Buy, expecially with this price.

A goodgame but...

Wizardino | Dec. 21, 2012 | Review of Sid Meier's Civilization® V

...but in my opinion not so good as Civ IV. The possibility to have only 1 unit on a tile it's a good innovation to the gameplay, but the lack of religion (in the basic game) and a new research system make the game make less engaging. Another interesting addition it's the "city states": a sort of independent faction with which the player can make alliance, or simply destroy and conquer (but if you attack one city state usually you must fight with all of them). So..it's a very good game but different from its predecessors

I love to Dig!

Wizardino | Dec. 21, 2012 | Review of A Game of Dwarves

Who dont like to dig and build? In this game you are a Dwarf prince, and your objective during the campaign it's to build an happy underground realm for your dwarves, with food, decoration, traps... In some ways this game reminds me Dungeon Keeper (well here you are the Good), and this is a good point; but the are some mechanics there are not very well implemented, for example the possibility to dig "up and down" and not only at the same level of your base. Another problem it's an excessive micromanagement: your dwarves need to eat, but they are not so intelligent to return to your base when they are hungry: if you dont build a table near them when they are far away, the death it's inevitable. But for 9 euro it's a good purchase

Good "CIV" game, with Majesty lore

Wizardino | Dec. 11, 2012 | Review of Warlock: Master of the Arcane

Warlock: Master of Arcane it's a turn based strategic game published by Paradox Interactive. The game it's similar tu Civilization: you must build cities, produce food, gold (and mana, it's a fantasy game!), recruit soldiers... and your Objective it's, obviously, to win against other opponents (up to eight). You can detroy them, conquer power points (place where you can build special temples, like in Majesty 2), or launch the Unity Spell. Because in this game you can use magic! Instead of reserching new tecnologies you must research powerful and useful spell that can helpo you during your match. Another interesting point it's the possibility to hire Heroes, special unit with great power and special objects A recommended game
