Hard to explain. A first person tile-based adventure/war game, I guess. I know they're quite different, but I consider this game a spiritual predecessor of King of Dragon Pass.

I've been following the remake since it began, which was before ios existed. It was/is called the Moonlight project.

I first played the game after discovering that webpage (I don't think this game was ever released on the Commodore 64, which along with the Apple were the dominant non-IBM pc's in the United States in the 80's).

I. Said. It. Would. Go. On. Sale. LATER!

Check at 9:00 and 11:00 PM eastern US time.

And for the member who posted the quizzical smiley face: if you don't know what this game is, you needn't worry about it.

I can't explain this game. Those who know it know what it is. It isn't an easily classified game. Which is one of the reasons it's a classic.

EDIT: I said it would be on sale later in my original post which, mysteriously, didn't post.
