Back to News Listing A New Demo and Update Now Available for Conquest! Medieval Realms

Posted: Wednesday, October 07, 2009 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

More polish to this engaging puzzle game and an extensive playable demo too!

Matrix Games and Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) are pleased to announce that a new playable demo and a new comprehensive 1.8 update are now available for Conquest! Medieval Realms. The new update adds hotseat play, fixes a rare crash bug, addresses an issue with selecting territories, and brings a number of other minor fixes.

 

In addition, the new demo includes all of the improvements that come with the latest update and adds two additional scenarios over and above what is already available from the older demo version.  Overall, this new demo gives gamers a much more accurate picture of the addicting puzzle-style gameplay found in the new Matrix Games release of Conquest! Medieval Realms. Newcomers as well as customers who already tried the old demo should check out this new version!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Conquest! offers a unique ‘brain teasing’ style of play that combines pure strategy with a historical wargame setting. Anyone who enjoys wargames or puzzle games will find something to like in Conquest! Now that there is an expanded and improved demo, there’s no reason not to give the game a try!”

 

Conquest! Medieval Realms is a turn-based game that combines the pure strategic gameplay of Chess and the key principles of military strategy in a historical setting.  The objective is to conquer up to 7 opposing AI or human players by defeating their armies and capturing their lands.

 

To gain supremacy, players will need to unite their spread out lands, build a roaring economy, and raise powerful armies to divide and conquer their enemies.  Boost your income via markets and mines, upgrade your armies with stables and archery fields, or amass a large force, but sound strategy and careful thought will help you more than brute force.

 

Rows of castles and towers can help to stave off attacks while flanking maneuvers around mountains and terrain can surround and destroy foes. Tactics and long term strategy are essential to success as each battle will play out differently across an endless random map generator.  For players looking to create their own tactical teasers, an easy-to-use map editor is also available for the creation of custom scenarios and campaigns.

 

Get the update or the demo here. This update is comprehensive and will bring any previous version to 1.8.

War in the West: Operation Torch gets a release date!

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Gary Grigsby’s War in the West is unprecedented in its historical depth, detail and scope among computer wargames that depict the entire Western Front of World War II both on land and in the air.  War in the West is a “monster game” by any measure, but retains the ease of play that made its predecessor, War in the East, a classic.

Nevertheless, 2by3 Games has not been resting on their laurels. The team was eager to add more material and many improvements to the game. The result of all these efforts is Operation Torch, a stunning expansion that covers not only the eponymous operation by the combined forces of the Western Allies against the Afrika Korps after El Alamein, but also much more!
