Warlock: Master of the Arcane is the latest game from Scandinavian publisher Paradox. It offers a slightly new take on the turn-based strategy genre, and is certainly a game for the more experience player.
|7||If there's one thing that strategy games can generally be counted on for it's ingenuity. There's just something about the genre, be it turn based or real time, that lends itself well to new ideas and concepts. For gamers it means that the big budget games can take more risks without threatening their bottom line, while smaller companies can push more revolutionary concepts in hopes of carving out their own niche. Warlock - Master of the Arcane is no exception to the rule. It's a turn based strategy game that mixes the familiar hex system of the recent Civilization series alongside their Ardanian fantasy elements. It strives to make an impression where other games may have failed by virtue of its creativity. The result is something that's halfway between an absolute mess, and a hilarious amount of fun. |
