Multiplayer
Players are able to challenge another human opponent to a match. It will start with a person picking their faction and then choosing a map. Once each player has a faction and map has been chosen, the players will enter the game. Since it is asynchronous, each player will take their turn, moving units and capturing points.Game Mechanics
  • Map. The map is a 3D model, where each of the borders of the hexes are on the same plane, at y=0. The size of the map is between 20-30 hexes wide and 20-30 hexes deep.
  • Capital city. Each player begins each match with a capital city. A player wins by capturing his opponent’s capital and loses if the opponent captures theirs. The capital city performs several functions: It provides resource each turn, it’s the only place where players can build troops (if they have the correct buildings unlocked), and it contributes to the amount of troops a player can field.
  • Capital city upgrades. A player’s capital begins the game as a town square. If the player has the necessary resources it can be upgraded to a castle, and then a stronghold. Each upgrade increases resource income, defense, and supply limit.
  • Resources. Players must collect resources in order to build units and fortifications.
  • Gold. Gold is spent to construct units.
  • Wood. Wood is spent to construct buildings and fortifications.
  • Food. Food determines the amounts of units a player can field.

Broadsword: Age of Chivalry reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Free game, offered by indie Gala... He has been watching me for a long time, I have seen it several times in the "trades" of some sites, without crossing the step.. And there really, without touching the countryside, I confess that I did well!! The game is empty, limited, poorly animated, the fights are ridiculous and the AI not necessarily balanced. Raler on a free game, why? Because even if the graphics are correct for a PS2, this game costs 20 balls.. €20 for something that gets screwed by heroes of might and magic, which are much cheaper! A tip, this game, redeem it or get it for free, it must stay keys somewhere...

Analysis of Broadsword: Age of Chivalry: A simple turn-based strategy game that will make us spend a good time with the lovers of the genre for their simplicity. The Campaign offers several hours of missions that consist of eliminating enemy strength. As you Go along appear new characters to use that will give us more strategic freedoms to succeed or fail in our game. However, I have seriously considered giving my negative vote for its price. The Best:-Its simplicity. Long. The worst:-Too expensive (20 euros). -Perhaps They should include some system of accomplishments. Conclusion: Recommended If you like the genre, but think twice and wait for it to be reduced.

Product received for free The first thing I have to say is that I got this title for free in Indie Gala. If I had paid your price, my valuation would be negative. It'S A very simple turn-strategy game. There Are Few types of units, basically 2 infantry, 1 archers and 1 cavalry. Heroes are very powerful cavalry units, but if they die, you lose the game. Resource management is very simple, they are automatically collected at the start of the shift. There'S a research field, but it's not worth it. The campaigns are very short (2 hours to finish 2) and easy. The AI of the machine is simple. I puntuo It positively, because despite being very simple, it's not bad, and it entertains. That If, is not worth €20, but if 2 or €3.

Product received for free The game is simple, the AI too simple, and the campaigns (both) tremendously short. To make the game even easier, your heroes are almost invincible (of the style you take me hitting for two shifts, and now I go, and I regenerate to the maximum). The mechanics for each phase of the campaign is as follows: Turn 1:1-Remove all the zoom you can. 2-Disperse your military units, to explore the largest possible area 3-if you see any resources, send the villager there to build a building on the resource. Turn 1 (Enemy): Watch where the camera moves, because it will tell you where the enemy's base is. Turn 2 and following: 1-once the enemy is located, use your hero to charge your villagers 2-investigate the healing ability as soon as possible 3-create one or two extra military units to hunt down the peasants when your hero is healing. Would you Recommend the game? In This state should be one of the games that are on the 50 cents of euro, and could have a pass, but not worth the €19.99 they are now asking for it.
