Kohan II: Kings Of War
In Kohan, inventive “timegates” managed to refresh both the actual game concept of the real-time strategy and the ideological content of the fantasy RTS. In no way wanting to belittle…

Mashed

All four multi-colored cars are at the start, scattered on random positions. Red light changes to green, a signal sounds and … you immediately find yourself in the tail of the column, because in this game you do not need to keep the gas at maximum during the countdown, but press it when the green light is on (well, isn’t it a charming nuance?). But nevertheless, the cavalcade rushes – the track is usually already known to everyone and attention is paid not to recognizing its twists in front in time, but rather to optimally pass them. For what there is nothing more than classic gas, brakes and turns 🙂 At the same time, you can shamelessly push, move menacingly, squeeze into abysses or obstacles, use partners as means to repay inertia – only carefully, since the physical game engine balances very subtly to Continue reading

Battle for Troy

The Battle of Troy is a cute little strategic game based on the notorious Trojan War, when the Greeks clashed with the Trojans, and in the center of the conflict was “the most beautiful mortal woman.” The game is really very nice, simple, so bright – designed, of course, for a simple fan for ordinary citizens, and not for the exquisite entertainment of seasoned strategists. And in her weight category she can only be blamed for one thing, perhaps the drawback is the lack of elementary multiplayer 🙂 If he had – there would have been an ideal “strategy light” in general, in which bored secretaries, for example, could play each other another 🙂 And it’s not very successful, it’s not so easy to fight against scripts and computer intelligence.

Crime Life: Gang Wars

You guessed it, the main focus of the game is on fights. And the emphasis is not pretty bad. If the limit of perfection for you is Mortal Kombat, then you can continue to play shogu. Here, everything is completely different. The standard WSAD control key combination, two mouse buttons (punch + super punch), shift (block) and spacebar (special punch) are all that you need. You don’t need a mouse directly in battle, because it is needed to change the direction of movement, and in a fight, WSAD is enough for this. By the way, the camera in the game is just awful. This is especially evident when trying to go out / go into the premises, and if you are close to the wall. The movement of the mouse leads to an inadequate reaction of the camera and, in fact, you get even more confused. If the camera was made as in GTA, then the fights would not be so spectacular. So you have to put up.

So about the fights. Striking, Tre over time becomes more angry, which adds to his reactions and specials. Continue reading
