Game Review

The Settlers is a medieval city building simulation game by Blue Byte Software, first released in 1993 for Commodore Amiga and in 1994 for MS-DOS. In America, it was published as Serf City: Life Is Feudal.

It took over two years to code the game to understand supply and demand.

The game is set in a cartoony version of medieval times. You must manage and obtain resources like wood, stones, pork, fish, bread, iron, coal, and gold. The goal of the game is to defeat your enemies and take their territory. It's a real-time strategy game. The Settlers features 30 ready-made missions, as well as semi-randomly generated maps. Two player games may be played both online and offline.

The graphics are gorgeous. Attention is paid to even the smallest of details. The Settler's economic system is incredibly deep and well balanced. Despite the cutesy look of the game, combat involves a lot of strategy. It's an incredibly well-made game, one that deserves to stand next to other better-known strategy greats like Civilization.
