Warlocked

Never done a review before, so here goes nothing.
So I was going through the gbc section seeing what we had when this game caught my interest. After doing some research I found that it was a western developed real-time strategy game published by Nintendo (go figure).
The game plays like a mini version of starcraft , you send out workers to collect resources , you use those resources to build armies, farms, attack towers etc. Then when youíre ready you attack the other side and try to destroy their base or complete other objectives. You play as two different armies : The human and the beast armies. Both sides are pretty much the same (knight =orc, worker=goblin) but each side has their own unique wizards that can change the flow of battle. Are your workers gathering materials too slow, summon a wizard to make them work faster or to turn your foes into zombies and attack their own side to buy you some time.
The graphics and music are very impressive for a gbc game and if you donít plan ahead you can waste all your resources and be at the mercy of your foes. Took me around 8 -10 hours to beat both sides(I had never played a real-time strategy game outside of Pikmin so starcraft vets might get through this faster than others).
Overall I thought it was a pretty neat forgotten Nintendo gem and might be a good way for people to be introduced to real time strategy games.

Re: Warlocked

Warlocked Ľ Game Boy Color. Your font size was very difficult for me to read without having to zoom in. I liked the review. Short and to the point. It's a game that I would play, but I'm super picky with my RTS games. So unless I get into the gameplay early on, I will stop and move on to something else.

Re: Warlocked

Sorry about the font, but Iím glad you liked the review. Itís a pretty good game and I hope you give it a try. Think I might try the N64 version of starcraft next. Iím a little hesitant as Iíve heard itís one of those life destroyer games.
