Strategiczne 15 October 1995

Command & Conquer (1995) is a legendary RTS, developed by an experienced American studio, Westwood – the people behind such classics as Eye of the Beholder, The Legend of Kyrandia or the worshiped Dune II. The action of this game takes place in the near future, where two factions – a terrorist organization, Brotherhood of Nod, and Global Defense Initiative – are fighting for influence. The stakes are high – global peace, and control over an invaluable resource – Tiberium. Each faction has its own set of buildings and units, among which there are infantry units, APCs, heavy tanks, fighter jets, or hovercrafts. The mechanics are based on Dune II, although the tactical layer and the AI have been significantly improved. The game is complimented by cinematic cut scenes, which comprise a 40-minute FMV. And let’s not forget about the multiplayer.

Heroes of Might and Magic: A Strategic Quest
Heroes of Might and Magic: A Strategic Quest

Strategiczne 15 June 1995

A turn-based strategy game set in a fantasy world and created by Jon Van Caneghem - the developer behind the classic Might & Magic RPG series, as well as the 90s' King's Bounty, which is considered a precursor to the former. The plot refers to the sixth installment in said RPG series and takes the player to the lands of Enroth. Four commanders have competed against one another for power over the lands. The four commanders are: Lord Ironfist (a knight), Queen Lamanda (a magician), Lord Slayer (a barbarian), and Lord Alamar (a warlock). The player assumes control of one of these characters in order to conquer Enroth and eliminate the opponents. Exploration of new territories constitutes a fundamental part of the experience. In this phase, the player gathers resources, artifacts, visits and claims various locations (mines, for instance), conquers castles belonging to the opposition, as well as battles different creatures and other enemies. Both the exploration and combat sequences are turn-based here. The characters/commanders do not participate directly in combat, though they can support their forces using spells.
