    Did any of you ever play the original Warlords for PC, back in the 90's?

    I spent many hours playing that game, and it's sequels. Not only vs the AI campaign, but vs a buddy IRL. We'd have to leave the room whilst the other player took his turn

    When I saw this version of Warlords in the App store, I assumed it was a throwback to that game. It's really not...just being one grid-based skirmish game among many....but for some reason I stuck with it.

    For those wondering, the PC game was a turn-based mass combat game. You played on a large map, with several cities, territories etc to conquer. A predecessor to the modern RTS games we see today.

    Wizardry....the ultimate dungeon crawler game(early-mid 80's). Played on my Apple IIC. I had stacks of graph paper mapping out those dungeons! Yes, kids, auto-map was a pipe dream back then.

    Am I the only one playing this game because of the similarity to the heroes fights?
