About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

'Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great' In Stores Now

Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great™ is easy to learn but difficult to master. It places you in the role of Alexander the Great during his conquest of the known world. Guide Alexander through his grand campaign from inheriting his father’s legacy at the battle of Thebes to his conquest of Darius III and the Persian Empire through his last great battle at the Hydaspes, in the heart of Asia against the Indian army of King Porus.

David Heath, Director of Operations for Matrix Games, said “Greece and all of Asia await your conquests. The opportunity to re-make one of the most unique chapters in history is now just a few clicks away, so head over to our online store and find out your destiny.”

Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great™ uses an innovative multi-phase turn-based system. As you play, the campaign unfolds before you with cinematic cut-scenes and three dimensional panoramas of the battlefields. Each battle is based on the historical terrain and troop placements, but the campaign allows you to make decisions in between battles on which units to reinforce, whether to recruit new units or replace commanders and how many of your resources to focus on training.

Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great™ includes support for multiplayer over the internet and local network (via TCP/IP). Any of the campaign battles can be selected or players can choose one of the two special multi-player scenarios: Bactria and Elysium.

List of Features

  • Simultaneous Turn-Based
  • Reaction system to adjust strategy during execution
  • Visually stunning and historically accurate miniatures-oriented art for soldiers and units
  • 3-D historical battlefields
  • Grand Campaign follows Alexander’s conquests from Greece to India
