Ancestors Legacy

Ancestors Legacy


Ancestor’s Legacy is a hybrid game of RTS and Real-Time Tactics(RTT) Gameplay, though it likes to side a bit more with the RTT genre.While this game has base building, it isn’t in the typical sense. The player is given a main base camp that has a build menu. After clicking the button to build a structure, the structure is built by peasants at a location predetermined by the game. The base camp is also not the main place the player will get resources. A variety of villages of different sizes are scattered around each map with resource points attached to them. Each faction has different specialties. Units can be leveled up and be given armor to increase their power. The squad limit is set at 10. The game uses a Rock-Paper-Scissors style system to make some armies great at defeating others, but each factions version of the army has their own individual stats. The graphics are phenomenal, the sound design is great, and the campaign is excellent.

These people nailed what a limited base building unit capped RTS should be. There are choke points, open fields, water that slows you as you move through it (including swamps), trap building, terrain elevations & weather effecting line of sight (and fire), special traits per unit per factions that still feels balanced.

It executes exceptionally well on limited base building RTS with unit creation and replenishment and rewards well thought out RTT gameplay as all units level and can be upgraded thus rewarding teamwork and unit specialization with the population cap, traps, and size of the map encouraging strategy whilst limiting unit production to the starting base and permitting unit replenishment at any captured (ally) village for a nominal fee.

There aren’t many RTS game nowadays. So, this one is like… a rare gem. One of the most brilliant contemporary RTS out there.

The objective is simply to win, by which means though is entirely up to you. You can choose a mercantile clan and obliterate your enemies from the map or a war-mongering one and wins the wisdom victory, for example. It’s possible, but not ideal, but again we have to make do with what we have. The game offers like so many clans to choose from (many of which are DLCs though). Your town hall, the main building, regularly generates your population. One at a time. You construct a building and assign a worker to it. You explore the map, each zone in tile with designated resource(s). You colonize a tile and construct a building you see fit. During winter each year, you suffer production penalty. And everything moves along the passage of time until one clan rises to supremacy, or everyone else falls. Oh, and all the while some special events occur: Kraken attacks, abnormally harsh winter, annoying earthquake, etc. One of the best things about this game is that you don’t have to micromanage your resources and workers so meticulously. The town hall only produces one person at a time and each production building can hold but a few assigned workers, so everything is easy to put under control.

Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon

Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon

A very fun game for PvP Players.

The units look cute, but don’t get it wrong, the PvP game is pretty hardcore with lots of ingenious tactics.

After like 150 matchups, I’m still adjusting strategies and tactics against different factions as there’re so many tricks on timeing, using physics and unit/skill combinations.

There’re lots of funny memories during my matchups.

Once I rushed 3 berserkers against Perisa. When them reached the doorstep of the opponent’s base, a Genie came out. Guess what? I bounced the Genie and a soldier behind my berserkers with Thor’s Hammer. Then the berserkers demolished their base, while the Genie was trying his best to reach mine.

A good game that just improved on what the first flash game did.

comparison to swords and soldiers 1 and soldiers 2 shawarmageddon

Swords and Soldiers 1:

3 factions, Aztecs fast and hits hard, Vikings good tough all around, and The Chinese having utility and zen magic.

-9 maps, small medium and big.

-has a campaign, online, vs local, al and challenges

-Gold mines on maps are 3 mines on each side.

cons: the strategy can be buying units in the right order and using spells correctly or just unit spam see who runs out of gold.
