Everybody needs a recommendation for a new game once in a while. Please include a little summary and/or rating.
Qvadriga for PC
-Roman chariot racing. Casual-ish, 2D top-down view, turn-based, graphics from 1995. Really a digital boardgame.
-Pick your lane going through the curves, test the limits of your chariot’s construction, use your whip on your horses when you need some speed (but don’t wear them out too soon). Lash other drivers, crash-bump their chariots, watch for the same coming to you.
-Many different race tracks (curriculae) to race on around the rim of the Mediterranean, each one requires different strategy and tactics.
Somehow this game is really addictive. Pretty satisfying when you made the right choices to emerge from the chaos to take First Place, or even Second. I think there’s an iPad version, probably be a smartphone version before long.
Alright, let’s hear them! Got to be some good game recommendations out there.
