Description from the packaging.

Live second century China.

China's second Han dynasty collapsed. The entire nation battles with itself as warlords struggle for supremacy. You are a Master, one of these warlords determined to beat out the others and control the country.

Manage the states under your control to increase their power and resources. Cope with disasters, both natural and otherwise, when they occur. Choose good subordinates and win their loyalty. Negotiate with other Masters, or take a less diplomatic approach, controlling your armies and those of your generals in great tactical detail on the battlefield. Take advantage of terrain as best you can. Choose the right kind of attack for the situation, or just try and trick the enemy. Do what the immediate situation calls for but don't fail to think ahead.

A huge data base together with advanced graphics, animation and programming give the game an unprecedented degree of reality. The Romance of the Three Kingdoms is based painstakingly on the Chinese epic novel of the same name, but is fast moving and easy to play. Features include:

  • 255 Characters, each with a distinct personality.
  • Military, economic and diplomatic simulation.
  • Five different scenarios.
  • Ten levels of difficulty per scenario.
  • Play by one to eight.
  • Demonstration mode.
  • Complete instruction manual and historical notes.

Produced by Kou Shibusawa.
