Medieval Clash is the English version of Tornimäe, a simple but fun strategy game from Estonia. Set in a nondescript country in 1387, your objective is to destroy the opposing king's castle while protecting your own by sending out an army consisting of clubmen, swordsmen, knights, archers, catapults, and cannons. Starting with a just the castle, you must buy all of the military units first. If you are running out of money, you can send men out into the countryside to chop down trees to earn income. Despite a very limited number of strategic options, the frenetic pace, and the fact that it takes a long time to destroy a castle makes Medieval Clash a fun game. There is always something happening, be it dozens of arrows raining down on your troops, the whir of catapults as they move ever so slowly into position, and the clang of combat as knights on horseback fight each other valiantly. |
The graphics are not "professional quality" by any means, but they are more than adequate, and you can always tell different types of units apart. All in all, a nice "snack-sized" strategy title for one or two players that you can enjoy during coffee breaks – and one that you will come back to for more. Recommended!
