Back to News Listing A New Demo and Update Now Available for Conquest! Medieval Realms

Posted: Wednesday, October 07, 2009 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

More polish to this engaging puzzle game and an extensive playable demo too!

Matrix Games and Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) are pleased to announce that a new playable demo and a new comprehensive 1.8 update are now available for Conquest! Medieval Realms. The new update adds hotseat play, fixes a rare crash bug, addresses an issue with selecting territories, and brings a number of other minor fixes.

 

In addition, the new demo includes all of the improvements that come with the latest update and adds two additional scenarios over and above what is already available from the older demo version.  Overall, this new demo gives gamers a much more accurate picture of the addicting puzzle-style gameplay found in the new Matrix Games release of Conquest! Medieval Realms. Newcomers as well as customers who already tried the old demo should check out this new version!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Conquest! offers a unique ‘brain teasing’ style of play that combines pure strategy with a historical wargame setting. Anyone who enjoys wargames or puzzle games will find something to like in Conquest! Now that there is an expanded and improved demo, there’s no reason not to give the game a try!”

 

Conquest! Medieval Realms is a turn-based game that combines the pure strategic gameplay of Chess and the key principles of military strategy in a historical setting.  The objective is to conquer up to 7 opposing AI or human players by defeating their armies and capturing their lands.

 

To gain supremacy, players will need to unite their spread out lands, build a roaring economy, and raise powerful armies to divide and conquer their enemies.  Boost your income via markets and mines, upgrade your armies with stables and archery fields, or amass a large force, but sound strategy and careful thought will help you more than brute force.

 

Rows of castles and towers can help to stave off attacks while flanking maneuvers around mountains and terrain can surround and destroy foes. Tactics and long term strategy are essential to success as each battle will play out differently across an endless random map generator.  For players looking to create their own tactical teasers, an easy-to-use map editor is also available for the creation of custom scenarios and campaigns.

 

Get the update or the demo here. This update is comprehensive and will bring any previous version to 1.8.

Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager gets release date.

"But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? " - US President John F. Kennedy ; 1962.

On July 20th 1969, the Apollo 11 mission successfully landed. For the first time in history, human beings walked on the Moon. The conquest of space that had started a few years after the end of WWII reached its climax with a manned lunar landing. In competition with the USSR, the US gained a decisive advantage when images of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and their lunar exploration module were broadcast on live TV all over the world from the Sea of Tranquillity. President Kennedy won his historic gamble by landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth before the end of the decade. A whole new era of space conquests was opened…
