I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I tried the demo earlier this week and just had to have the game. I downloaded my nice new gold version this morning and my guys are 2 and 0 right now!

This is a great game! I had searched for something like this. I tried one called Coliseum (at shrapnel games) but BoN is far superior.

Well, back to the battles.... Smile

Welcome and thank you. Smile
Didn't know such a game existed, I guess I have to try it then.

It will be a let down after your game. Coliseum is supposedly a gladiatorial simulation. The player can have 3 warriors but only one fights at any one time. You can crank him on "steroids" (potions) and have some enchantments. All the fighting is pretty much just text and is randomly decided. I was quite disappointed. There is a demo on the shrapnel games site. http://www.shrapnelgames.com/stormcloud/coliseum/1.htm

Then I found BoN while just searching for strategy games. What a find too! Oh, by the way, here is where I found BoN. I was googling for strategy games and found this site, saw the entry for BoN. Just thought you'd like to know how the word got to me.

It's probably too late to warn you, but please don't bother looking too hard at that game. Coliseum is terrible IMO. I bought it myself a while ago because I was desperate for a gladiator type game, and it looked good for the first 5 minutes. But it's very, very, VERY shallow, with pretty much no strategy or managerial skill required whatsoever.

After getting frustrated at the lack of options, I deleted it off my PC after a week or so. I'm far from your level of programming ability, Tertsi, but I personally could write something better than Coliseum.

Crush Deluxe, now... that uses aliens instead of fantasy races, but other than that it's the only game in this genre that I have ever played that is about the same level of quality as BON.

Nothing personal intended if anyone connected with Coliseum reads this, of course... but it just didn't play like a lot of effort was put into it.
