10. Freeman Guerrilla Warfare (2018)
‘Freeman Guerilla Warfare’ is an unique take on the sandbox strategy games where you are required to build and maintain an army both from a first person perspective and from the top down ‘god mode’ view. The control systems are a combination of first person tactical shooters and real time strategy mechanics and are quite intuitive as far as we have seen. You start off with minimal resources in a wide open world ravaged by war and chaos with the overall aim of conquering the entire land. You roam around the various towns gathering information, making connections and slowly building your reputation among the people. This allows you to recruit other soldiers and build a small battalion to take down your enemies.
As you take over towns, your power grows and you are able to afford a stronger army and defences. While you engage in combat, the view shifts to a first person perspective, allowing you to deploy strategies of your choice. We really liked this hybrid gameplay aspect of the game as it adds a lot of variety and strategic depth to the game, something which I felt is essential to the overall design. It is clearly influenced by games like ‘Mount and Blade’ and this shows in the conquering mechanics. It is presently in early access on steam and is due to release shortly once the developers feel satisfied with the product.
9. Conqueror A.D. 1086 (1995)
‘Conqueror A.D. 1086’ is a medieval strategy game developed by Software Sorcery and published by Sierra On-Line for Microsoft Windows and MS DOS platforms in the year 1995. The game is one of the earliest in its type and introduced a lot of gameplay mechanics that have become a staple over the years. As you start playing through the game, it becomes clear to you that ‘Mount and Blade’ has definitely drawn influences from it. You start off as a young boy in England who is destined to be the greatest warrior and conqueror of his time, but before you can set off on that journey, you need to learn how to wield a sword and sway it in combat. At the age of 18, you are blessed with a fiefdom and a small piece of land.
