Review by  Michael Lee
Reviewed on 2009-03-24
Graphics: 9/10

Good for a BASIC game! Some people, though, would rather see the trees eliminated to save map loading times.

Gameplay: 10/10

I cannot say there is anything wrong with the gameplay. Good concept, good execution, good structure. The skirmishes are really fun! Please release more research, buildings, and soldiers!

Controls: 8/10

Make the cursor wrap around instead of stopping at the edges. Plus, the cursor suffers from lag.

Speed: 7/10

Ah, yes. The dreaded speed. The speed gets really laggy nearly 2 minutes into playing it. AND, I once was exited out because of insufficient memory. As usual, with most large BASIC games, save often and restart it to increase speed and decrease possible memory problems.

Overall: 8.5/10

This is a great game. The speed doesn't outweigh the gameplay, and you should definitely download this now.

Note! This review was written for a previous version of this file!

This could have been a very fun game, but there is one malfunctioning feature that messes everything up.

Game play: 4/10

Simple and intinuitive, the game also has great graphics. However, the "Add soldiers" command does not work, thus making it impossible to fight or build an army. This kind of negates the point of the game.

Speed: 9/10

Worked well on my TI-84 SE, but might not on lesser calcs.

Graphics: 10/10

The best I have seen in a AOE style game. It's not texted-based!

Overall: 4/10

This could have been a great game, but that one malfunctioning feature ruins it.
