I love turn-based strategy. Whether it is the epic, century-spanning saga of Civilization, or a more intimate affair like For the King, turn-based offers a far greater emphasis on strategy and skill, rather than a reward for whoever can click a button or pull a trigger the best.
So, I wanted to start a new adventue that I could chronicle, keeping track of my progress.
Age of Magic describes itself as a:
fantasy game about lots of epic heroes, fighting on the remnants of an ancient magical world.
And do you know what? That’s exactly what it is!
This first level sees you go up against an innocuous little creature as you learn the basics of attacking. I am certain that there will be more to learn as the game goes on, but for now I’m happy to know which button(s) to keep pressing to take some health off the bad guys.
The level ends with a bit of a quick tutorial about how to level up your character (or hero), so I look forward to seeing how that plays out in coming games.
