Royalty among real-time strategies.
Tzar: The Burden of the Crown, an elaborate and masterfully executed real-time strategy driving its inspiration from the history of medieval wars, is available on GOG.com for only $5.99.
Many people imagine the life of the monarchs to be simple and blissful. There's no higher authority, so there's no one to tell them what to do. They can decide to spend their days feasting, dancing, hunting, and pursuing other frivolous activities. The thing they don't understand is the weight of the crown. Not the actual weight--that's quite bearable, even though many rulers would much prefer a simple felt hat, then a layered construct of fine gold and jewel stones--they weigh no less than regular stones, mind you. The metaphorical weight is far greater. The burden of the crown is the burden of the ages. As it rests on one's head, so does the whole history of a nation: the past, the present, and the future. To tell you the truth, the latter feels the heaviest, today. Excuse your Tzar this moment of chatter, Field-marshal. The battle is upon us, let gods make it the last one.
Tzar: The Burden of the Crown offers the best in real-time strategy gameplay with a believable setting and nice sense of scale, and just a splash of fantasy. The three factions available in the game--Europeans, Asians, and Arabs--differ greatly from one another in terms of gameplay style and available facilities. The main campaign spanning across twenty scenarios grants many hours of challenge and excitement. When it ends the game provides an infinite number of randomly-generated maps, and a solid multi-player mode.
Accept the greatest responsibility and take a nation's fate in your own hands in Tzar: The Burden of the Crown, for only $5.99 on GOG.com
