Seven Kingdoms- Ancient Adversaries
--- Info adapted from Wikipedia.org ---
"Seven Kingdoms" is a real-time strategy (RTS) computer game developed by Trevor Chan of Enlight Software and published by Interactive Magic in 1997. The game enables players to compete against up to six other kingdoms allowing players to conquer opponents by defeating them in war (with troops or machines), capturing their buildings with spies, or offering opponents money for their kingdom.
Interactive Magic later released a free patch that added three new cultures, the Egyptians, the Mughals and the Zulus, and a new war machine, called the Unicorn. The game was re-released on June 08, 1998 under the name "Seven Kingdoms: Ancient Adversaries" with this patch included (this is the version you can Download here).
Seven Kingdoms made departures from the traditional real-time strategy model of "gather resources, build a base and army, and attack" set by other RTS games. The economic model bears more resemblance to a turn-based strategy game than to the traditional "build-workers, and harvest-resources" system in games such as Command & Conquer, StarCraft, and Age of Empires.
The game features an espionage system that allows players to train and control spies individually, who each have a spying skill that increases over time. The player is responsible for catching potential spies in their own kingdom. Inns built within the game allow players to hire mercenaries of various occupations, skill levels, and races. Skilled spies of enemy races are essential to a well-conducted espionage program, and the player can bolster his or her forces by grabbing a skilled fighter or give ones own factories, mines, and towers of science, a boost by hiring a highly skilled professional. For instance, having a skilled Persian general can make capturing and keeping a Persian village much easier.
The game allows players to choose seven different cultures to command. Players can choose between the Japanese, Chinese, Mayans, Persians, Vikings, Greeks, and the Normans. This "Ancient Adversaries" edition adds the Egyptians, the Mughals and the Zulu. Each culture has its own weapons and fighting styles and can also summon its own "greater being", each having different powers.
