Dark Legions

Added bymfischer1's avatarmfischer1

Dark Legions is an action based strategy game. The player may play against the computer or another human on a strategic game board. In the beginning of the game, the player buys their forces with a predefined number of credits, and may purchase any of the 16 characters along with various kinds of traps and even rings of power to upgrade their creatures. One is chosen to be the "Orb Keeper". The Orb Keeper is like the King in chess: the game is over if he dies. Then players set up on a chosen map and start to move turn wise. When one player moves a piece into the same square as an opponent, the action is instantly transferred to another board map that represents the terrain upon which the two pieces occupy. Each player starts with their single piece on this "melee map" and must fight using their figures. The fight is simultaneously controlled in real time.

A friend of mine bought this game and we played the blasted thing for hours! I found a copy a few months ago but never got around to trying to play it as that computer decided to burn its motherboard out. I would buy this game in a heartbeat if I saw it show up on GOG.

I would purchase this game the moment GOG.com released it. I have spent so many hours on this game and I miss a . Such a well made strategy game and an excellent "Hot-Seat" game.

I have this on CD-ROM, it's pretty sweet, though the AI leaves a bit to be desired.

One of my favorite oldschool strategy games. Used to spend hours gettng whooped by my older brother. This would be insta-buy for me - please add this GoG! Glad to see there's a few other GoGer's to multiplayer with - I'm pretty sure I had something close to an unbeatable setup (using large map, 20,000 creds)

Wow, guess this must be another one of those games that never got the attention it deserved. This is a very excellent strategy/action game not unlike a souped-up Archon Ultra or Star Control 1... turn-based strategy until two pieces meet, then it's a real time battle. The units are very different in terms of capabilities and cost (you 'buy' units at the start of the game) resulting in dozens of distinct viable strategies. Wraiths could teleport vast distances (at the cost of life) to assassinate rear targets, wizards could freeze units on the strategy or melee screen, vampires began the game with negative life regeneration but could steal enemy units, fire elementals could sacrifice themselves to burn everything around them, trolls could turn to stone when they got low on life, templars could heal and smite undead, thieves could disarm traps, shapeshifters could pretend to be any unit, etc. Powerups could be purchased to permanently buff a single unit. Traps could be purchased and placed to thwart an overly aggressive player. If you were really good in melee with a certain unit you could use an illusionist or conjurer to summon multiple cheap copies of it. The object was to kill your opponent's orb-carrier, but this could be given a hidden but weak phantom or a strong demon, or anything in-between.

It had single player, hotseat multiplayer and even modem (not internet, just 'modem') multiplayer that might be usable with some really deep Dosbox magic.

Judging by the number of votes here you may not get as many people buying out of nostalgia, but this might help you pick up the rights for cheap. And I think word of mouth will garner you plenty of sales from first time players.

I too am stunned by how few votes this game has. Truly one of the great unsung strategy games of all time. So very, very fun.

I was going to add this if no one else did. I just remember the name, I had forgotten what it was called for a few years. I'd love to have a version working on modern computers (Win7/32)!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_LegionsI could not remember the name of this game and thought it was Archon Ultra. But this is much, much better!

I can't believe this only has 41 votes. I played this game over and over when I was younger. The best fantasy-chess-style computer game I've played.

I played this game for years and just recently got a version to play though DOSBOX. I am no computer wizard and getting it up and running was a nightmare:(, even then it still didnt work properly. I would much rather prefer to buy it at GOG and know it will work properly and maybe even have a few extra goodies to download with it. I hope it will some day be here/fingers crossed and keep on preaching the gospell brothers! haha. GOG needs this game hands down woot:).

This game is so overlooked it's practically criminal. It refined the combat/boardgame gameplay seen in titles like Archon to a masterful level. It was one of my absolute favorite pc games growing up, and I would jump at the opportunity to buy it on GOG. It's hard to find even as abandonware, and a site like GOG could finally get the game the recognition it deserves.

Dark Legions cost me many hours of free time. I would love to be able to play this game again. It was a fun game that relied on strategy AND skill. Great combination.
