Glest is a game that places us at the head of the nation who need of support - the goal is one, completely destroy the enemy. Starting gameplay we'll make a choice between one of two playable factions and bring up one of the many, many maps full of the mission.
During the game, you compete with up to three computer opponents in the medieval climates. The title has been classified as a real-time strategy and now we have a chance to opt for the one side of the conflict: Magic or Tech. The first uses a horde of undead soldiers, golems and dragons to gain an advantage on the battlefield. The second one prefers a standard barracks necessary to train soldiers and technicians, who build huge mechanized units to fight the enemy.
Authors offer us several game modes - the first of which is the scenario divided into a maps according to the degree of difficulty. The goal is to always be the last living hero among fallen opponents. The second mode allows you to take advantage of all the options available in the game without filling any top-down assumptions, for example, you can be attached to any team. The third option is to play multiplayer online, where we can meet and join forces with other players from around the world.
Unfortunately, graphic design aren’t very spectacular - theme of the Middle Ages in the form of video and audio in some sense saves the day. Unfortunately, we also find a few flaws in Glest, like the inability to set the level difficulty of the game. We also won’t find the campaign mode, a story that will take us through the next feature events. The game is mainly focused on the elimination of the enemy before he will get close to us.
We can therefore conclude that the production is intended for experienced players who are patient and don't mind the turn-based gameplay. In summary, if there are fans of retro style strategy games, this open production should definitely hit on their list of titles to test, especially because it’s completely free.
