Battle Realms for the Mac!

Anther good old game is added to the paulthetall.com carlog! Battle Realms is a masterfully crafted real-time strategy game. Cosmetically it is very similar to Warcraft III. It’s not quite as complex as Blizzard’s offering, but it’s got charm and it’s got heart. Everything about Battle Realms is stylish, sleek, and cool. If you enjoy games with high production values and snazzy looks, this game delivers. Check out the trailer below to get an impression of the game.

Kenji, exiled heir to the Dragon throne, must stake his claim in a chaotic world wracked by the subversive intrigues of the Serpent, Wolf, and Lotus clans. Shall he vanquish the land under a campaign of malevolence and terror or restore the war-torn realm to its former glory? Enter Battle Realms and choose your destiny. Explore the history that led up to the events in Battle Realms in Battle Realms: Winter of the White Wolf. Scattered and unorganized, your enslaved Wolf brethren hunger for revolt against their corrupt Lotus Clan masters. You must unite them. You must lead them. You must free them.

Sword of the Samurai released for the Mac!

Worthy to mention in a blogpost is the yesterday released good old game Sword of the Samurai. This good old DOS game for which some people say “the spiritual father” of the Shogun Total War series. Almost everything that is part of TW is here. Real-Time combats, management of family lineage through generations. The only thing lacking is the action parts (sword combat and infiltration). A real muts-buy for every strategy fan and japanese history enthusiast, if you don’t mind the 16-color graphics.

In Sword of the Samurai, you will be part of the culture of feudal Japan, and you must learn to live by its rules. To succeed as a samurai, you must think like the samurai. Learn when to leave your sword in its sheath, when to draw it – and what to do with it once it’s drawn. You will fight duels, lead troops on the battlefields, and defend your family against assassins and kidnappers. If you are courageous and honorable, you may advance to become the head of your clan, and warlord of your province. If you master diplomacy and generalship, and outmaneuver your rivals, you may even become Shogun – absolute ruler of Japan. But remember that in all cultures power corrupts – and those who seek absolute power don’t always play by the rules.

7th Legion for the Mac!

Now all should be working fine, we can go back at the task at hand! I will start as first new game post on the new site with 7th Legion! 7th legion is an old strategy game which has been re-released on GOG.com a few weeks back. The game looks a bit like the basic strategy games as Red Alert and Earth 2150, and is quite enjoyable to play. Enjoy the game!

Centuries of reckless consumption and overpopulation had brought the Earth’s ecosystem to the brink of collapse. In desperation, governments of the world developed an interstellar Evacuation Program granting exit passes only to the most privileged segments of society. The poor and common were left behind to perish. Now centuries later, the “Chosen” have decided to return to Earth and assume control. But there’s a catch – the 7th Legion is waiting with a powerful and fiery “welcome home” BBQ planned in their honor.

Rome Total War: Alexander released for the Mac!

Great news, I remembered in the past that someone asked me to port the Windows version of Rome Total War so he would be able to play Alexander as well. Well, this isn’t needed anymore! Because since a few days Rome: Total War – Alexander (Mac) is been natively released for the Mac! This Mac expansion is now available on Gamersgate and requires the original Rome: Total War Gold Edition (Mac) game in order to play it. If you don’t remember the game, then let the trailer below refresh your mind :)

Rome: Total War: Alexander is the second expansion for Rome: Total War. It is set in an earlier time period, putting the player in the role of Alexander the Great. It begins with Alexander’s ascension to the Macedonian throne in 336 BC and lasts for 100 turns, each of which, unlike the original game and the first expansion, Barbarian Invasion, do not represent six months (assuming that it follows Alexander’s actual reign of thirteen years, each turn would represent nearly seven weeks). The game is much the same as the original Rome: Total War, but with fewer factions, different units, and a different map. The player’s goal is to conquer 30 provinces, including key cities such as Tyre, Halicarnassus and Babylon, within the 100 turn limit.

I created a game page on the site for this expansion here…

Populous 3: The Beginning for the Mac!

Today Populous is the game focus. Populous and Populous 2 are already available for the Mac on GOG.com. Populous 3 – The Beginning was the only Populous game not ported yet. So here it is! Because of Populous 3, I made a game page for Populous and Populous 2 on this website as well. The games can be found now under the strategy section of the game ports. Enjoy!

In the third part of the Populous series, you control your shaman and the tribe of her followers in a difficult quest to conquer all 25 planets of a star system and ascend to godhood. For the first time in the series, the world is presented in true 3d, which at the time amazed both the players and the gaming press.The level of control you exert over your followers also takes you to a new level: you can order individuals or groups to perform certain tasks like gathering resources, constructing buildings, or attacking your enemies.

Tank Operations: European Campaign for the Mac

A very nice strategy game in the way of Panzer General 2 for today! The game is called: Tank Operations: European Campaign and works as in Windows in my tests on my Nvidia 640M iMac. Engaging and intense turn-based gameplay, feel the weight of the war on your shoulders as the AI reacts to your every move on the battlefield. The battle scenarios range from the landing of Allied troops in northwestern Africa to the invasion of Southern Italy, and wrap with the liberation of Paris and the final battle in Berlin! This great game is available on Gamersgate and works great using Crossover! Watch the trailer below to get convinced!

Tank Operations: European Campaign is a turn-based, tactical wargame featuring a dozen nail-biting historical scenarios set on the diverse battlefields of World War II. With more than 50 faithfully-rendered, authentic military combat units, along with sabotage options and the need to manage your supply chain, the game will keep armchair generals occupied for hours in realistic combat scenarios.
