  1. It is not overly challenging in terms of resource management, but the strangeness of this world’s inhabitants and their civilizations make this a nice little program.
  2. It's more amusing than "1602 A.D." because of the differences in each race but gameplay is strikingly similar.
  3. While the game played rock stable and had bells and whistles galore, the lack of needed documentation gave me constant fits of frustration.
  4. The game isn't all bad, but its easy campaigns and straightforward, simplistic gameplay mean that it won't last you for very long.
  5. But the FPS of the characters rendered their movements choppy and the general artistic schemes – the pudgy blue Pimmons and boringly animated Amazons – were less funny than they were just not to be taken seriously.
  6. 43
    Ham-handed implementation and lackluster production values obscure what few clever devices are buried within.
  7. Tedious micromanagement kills the fun before the going gets good.
  8. Klutzy controls and instructions, tiresome micromanagement, and uninspired audio are wearying once the novelty of the game has worn off.

    Best game ever!!
    Note: there is actually 3 players!!!!
    Tips for beginners:

    1 Never change all your transporters into other men. (this causes pure havvock, I mean you cant even transort material needed to build structures.)

    2 Do the tuteral before anything else! (it teaches you how to play!!!!!)

    3 When playing other nations, get a warrior as soon as possible. (such as hunters, archers, pyros ect.)

    4 Always make new cities in an area near stone,lumber, and bushes. (so your city can do well)

    5 Make at least one extra city. (in case your main one falls!)

    6 Try to make peace with one race and take the ther one down. (trust me it makes it easier)

Sometimes the game can be confusing in its micromanagement (the biggest challenge of the game is paying attention to all the details) and the tutorials could've been more interactive. Nonetheless, it's worth finding (at the right price). Full Review »
