Battle the Shadowlord

Behold - a fantasy strategy game that faithfully re-creates the easy-to-use interface, superior art and combat that made Panzer General so wildly popular! And, like its award-winning predecessor, success in Fantasy General depends entirely on your effectiveness as a leader.

Battle the Shadowlord and his minions across five continents as any one of four Fantasy Generals. Choose from over 120 distinctive fantasy units. Lead your inexperienced army well and watch it improve with each victory. And improve it must - only the most experienced troops will be effective against the vile Shadowlord's massed forces!

Play 5 ready-made campaigns, or enter the Arena and create any kind of battle imaginable. You can even engage a friend via the play-by-mail feature! However you choose, you're in for fantasy strategy gaming as only the Five-Star Series can deliver!

Minimum CD-ROM requirements: 150 KB data transfer rate, 350 ms access time. Uncompressed hard drive required. Sound: Sound Blaster Family and 100% compatibles.

Reviews:

PC Games, June 1996

"This game takes the best of the Panzer General engine and adds enough new features so that no one could ever mistake it for a simple reuse of the existing code."

"Fantasy General lets you take on the role of one of four champions trying to rid an oppressed world of the Shadowlord, an evil tyrant who holds the entire planet in a despotic death grip. Each hero has special abilities, such as casting spells or summoning armies, that make the task easier or more challenging, depending on you choice."

"With solid graphics, great playability, and an absolutely superb classical music score, Fantasy General does for fantasy wargaming what Panzer General did for WWII games: it makes the genre fun, easy to play, and tactically challenging."

Games Domain by Craig Strachan

"...I fear that a lot of hardened wargamers will be put off by the subject matter of the game and that's a shame because they will be missing one of the best wargames I've played in a long time. On the other hand, perhaps fans of fantasy will be lured into trying a type of game they would not normally consider so perhaps things will even themselves out...."
