Emulation

A prototypical real-time strategy game. Apply the teachings of Sun Tzu in a war of knights, barbarians and archers.

A note about the manuals available from above:
The first manual link above holds the AAOW 1984 manual as a PDF file
A Quick Reference Card is also available:

One of the best strategy games of all time, in my opinion. Focuses on tactics in battle, and even lets you control your units (somewhat) in real time battle. Very fun, and an inspiration to many other more recent games. - BH

The best game ever. Groundbreaking at it’s time and still incredibly fun today. If only someone would remake it with color, multiplayer etc it would be amazing. Highly recommended - I still prefer this game to any other in existence. - C.H.

One of my all time B&W favorites! - JDW

Disk image is corrupted/modified. It mounts and plays, but if you read through the text, internet links have been inserted.
