Turn based strategy based on the novel Water Margin
Chinese ancient history is full of intrigue and interesting conflict. This game focuses on the novelization Water Margin, which looked at the Chinese empire during the reign of the emperor Huizong, a time when there was a conflict between the Chinese official power and a force of bandits which grew and aimed to overthrow the established regimen. Within this context, the game plays as a classic tabletop game and it spikes up the gameplay with elements of rile playing, offering the game a more personal facet. Having been released in 1989, the game doesn't look half bad even for modern standards and it remains playable as well, given that you allow the game a period of accommodation with its chunkier controls. You will thus be tasked with economic and other general strategic elements as well as tabletop tactics during conflicts, while also playing the game as an RPG through a choice based interface. Not the most original game, neither the best to use the same recipe, but a good one for those that don't mind the old school interfaces.
