I was digging lately in a bunch of cds older than newer, although most of them are above "abandonia standard" (they are rather newer and probably ESA) I found not much that would be useful or widely found (in whatever way (illegal included)). I found a bit scratched cd which thankfully works great accept for one music track and one fx sound, and it's a real forgotten and unknown perl.

It's a pedigree DOS emperial TBS where you build your army and castles in skirmish NPC\hotseat expierience,
or to struggle in two hard and exacting yet good written- due to level design as to a well written story line- campaigns.

This game characterizes a great chess like gameplay in a separate world and battle view- where you can command your units or let the computer to battle for you,
but don't be afraid, even a strategy amateur will find the skirmish for himself.

The game offers about 30 different units of soldiers both historical as well mythical which vary between ifantry, mounted, ranged, flying, siege wepons, etc.
You will also have the ability to manage your castles and fortresses, population, income, building roads, towers, pitfalls but also digging treasures and praying in your God's temples to get blessings.

From the technical view the game offers very good graphics and animations, fenomenal and climatic music, great cinematics, a simpe yet desireing a thinkful mind gameplay.

To sum the review:
----

+pluses+
----
-very good graphics and animations
-excellent music
-a weird and addicting desire to play it "just one more time"
-a simple gameplay
-a difficulty level suitable for begginers as for TBS experts
-two exacting campaigns


-minuses-
----
-lack of a lan\internet multiplay
-there never was a level editor released


As to sum this unknown but good product, minus the lack of the greatly desired level editor the game deserves for a 9/10.

*a review is a subjective description of something and you may have a different opinion, and if you have just keep it for yourself, thankyou .
As I mentioned before this is a sure abandonware becouse the producer, publisher and the distributor are dead and noone owns the rights to the title and is being sold nowhere.
I also mentioned that the cd was scratched so one track, and the castle destruct sound are gone.
The game is full (not counting the unit voices) polish, so I can make a translated tutorial, the controls and interface are easy and selfexplanatory and once you'll get a hang on it you will play intuitionally.
I can also put a review for it (though I think this one is not bad(is's my first review ever)), and a translation\description of level briefings.
The game weights 539 MB; packed with GameDrive10 471 MB but as I have the original cd it shouldn't be a problem to make an ISO file if prefered.
The biggest border seems to be the language but as I said a tut will make his job, it would be a shame to reject a perl like this.

Can this game be qualified to AB?

It's a pretty bad idea to 'code' the txt file, better use the 'quote' tag.

Umm, can someone reply if you want the game ? I searched the forums and found nothing saying that you have it, so I thought that it would be nice to put it into the ISO cellar or wherever. If you don't want it just say.

A44, we only host games with english as the deafault language. There are exceptions only if the game wasn't published in the english language. Clash was indeed released in english-speaking countries by Midas

Hmmm, this game is nowhere to get on the net, even the info about it is obscure, especially in english sources. You can make an exception because of its rarity; sh*tty that hotu is dead (yes, yes its resurected, but it's still only a shaddow of the hotu we know) as it was the only reasonable site to throw it on. There is no sense in arguing if you don't want it, although it's a shame that you don't want it, because some may like the game...

If you change your mind let me know.
