Smile War Game rcommendations

I'm looking for a decent wargame with tactical planning, castle construction etc and invite recommendations from forum members. I currently use Rampart. Not sure if there is a Rampart II. What do forum members recommend please?

celtic legends. good strategy game. quite a few islands to win over at least 20. basically you create and manouver various platoons consisting of up to 8 characters per group. it is a fantasy game though. with various fantasy creatures making up your army.

eskel is your main guy, dont let him die or you lose the island. your objective is to kill sogrom. as stated you have various creatures that can move either one or two spaces at a time. some have magic capabilities that grow with experience.

there are castles in the game. if you hold a castle it means only you can use magic during the fight. if you are trying to storm a castle...it means you have no magic...and the keeper of the castle does have magic (if it is a creature that can use magic) so strategy is required when planning to storm castles or even defend them.

it is basically like fantasy chess. a bit like warhammer you could say.

give it a whirl and if you do, let me know what you think

Celtic Legends plays similar to Heroes of Might and Magic. Speaking about Heroes reminded me of king's bounty. It's "Heroes 0", the game before Heroes 1.

Eek Total Chaos AGA Wargame for Amiga

Looking for a good wargame?
I strongly recommend to you

TOTAL CHAOS AGA
As it was coded by real Amiga Sceners and makes good maximum use of Paula, Agnus and Denise!

You can build a Castle in this game by casting one of the many 'Wall' spells and arranging the walls how you want. Some types of walls are stronger than others and so forth.

Another way to build a castle is to cast a 'Magic Castle' spell! Really Then your wizard (your main character, you) can enter the Castle and be heavily protected from enemy fire.

Or you can cast a Dark Citadel which is like a Magic Castle but also gives you the ability to hit undeads.

Or you can cast a Shadow City which is really the ultimate one that I have found. It is constructed with powerful evil majix such that it actually IS undead! If you put your wizard inside it then NOTHING can hurt you! Except other undeads of course. But it would take zombies and ghouls and ghosts a long time to break down a Shadow City.

I am fairly certain that there is more tactical planning in Total Chaos AGA than in any other Amiga game as there are several hundred different monsters and magic spells. Maybe over a thousand. There are literally MILLIONS of things you can do.

There is a sneaky trick you can do. The evil CPU wizards controlled by the 68060 will do this trick also, they are very smart! Ok the trick usually works like this: You have a Weak Wall spell. This spell has infinite range and does not need LOS. Put the mousepointer over the spell and press 'c' (for Cast) if you don't believe me. It will hilite every open square on the gameboard!!! Weak Wall is the only type of Wall that has infinite range.

Ok so you get 6 pieces of wall with the Weak Wall spell so just look for any enemy Wizard who is up against the edge of the map, or already partly surrounded by Rocks, Walls, Trees or other inanimate objects. Now cast your Weak Walls around that wizard and he will be blocked in!!!! HAHAHAHAHA! He won't be able to summon any monsters because there are now no open adjacent squares!!!!

Oh crap, why did I tell you such a good trick? Now you will use it against me! Oh that's ok I know lots more tactics besides that one so I'll get you in the end!

Its a very fun game. Really this game is the only reason I still own/use a real Amiga cause I play it 5 times a week! And 1 or 2 times a week with friends. The gameplay never gets old. Its a blast!
