A few months after its successful release on iPad, Da Vinci’s: Art of War is now reaching the Android world with a brand new name, Magnifico, in tribute to the boardgame that inspired this digital adaptation. Today owners of Android tablets will finally have the chance to get their hands on “…a better game than Risk” (Digitally Downloaded) and “[a game with] a very different approach, which is refreshing” (App Review Central).

In Magnifico mighty European lords from the 16th century want to expand their influence in the continent at any cost. You will will lead a faction and fight your way to conquer European provinces. You will be confronted with tough AI opponents that will adopt various behaviors and strategies so that every game is very different. As you earn Victory Points, your will have to take economic and military decisions, and invest in Da Vinci’s technologies to boost their armies and territory production levels.

Inspired by the famous boardgame Magnifico, this adaptation has been especially designed for Android tablets. Players can move units, build defense structures and develop dreadful war machines simply and easily. However, only the best tacticians will be able to adapt to this new European context and bet on the inventions that really make the difference!

Get more information on Magnifico from its official Android product page.

Field of Glory 2 Developers Diary - A.I.

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

The AI for Field of Glory II has been developed by building on the knowledge gained from developing the generally praised AI for Pike and Shot and Sengoku Jidai.
 
Deployment
For non-preset scenarios, it is important that the AI can deploy its army in a sensible formation, taking account of the prevailing terrain.
Generally speaking, most ancient armies would deploy with an infantry centre in one or more lines. (Usually three for Romans, usually only one for Hellenistic armies). They would then have cavalry on both wings and perhaps in reserve, plus light troops both in the centre and on the wings.

Gettysburg: The Tide Turns is out!

Thursday, July 13, 2017

The Battle of Gettysburg, fought between the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia, is considered by many the turning point of the American Civil War.

Lasted three days, from July 1st to July 3rd, 1863, the battle saw many epic and tragic moments, culminating in the famous Pickett's Charge, the desperate frontal assault of the confederates against the unionist defensive lines at Cemetery Ridge.

Today, Shenandoah and Slitherine are very proud to release Gettysburg: The Tide Turns, the brilliant hex-based wargame that will make you relive all the hard tactical choices the Confederates and the Unionists had to take during these long and crucial days of fierce fighting.
