Master of Magic

Master of Magic is a turn based 4x strategy game developed by SimTex and published by the well know Microprose, very similar to Civilization, with a fantasy twist. You play as a wizard and your objective is to evolve your race from a small settlement to a bursting empire. To do so, you can produce military units to fight other computer controlled players, research news spells and use magic, conquer territories and found new cities.

Early versions of Master of Magic were riddled with bugs and had a terrible artificial intelligence, frustrating a lot of reviewers with its crashes and ignorant enemies. A few patches later, version 1.2 corrected a lot of the bugs and added some tweaks but there were still game crashing moments.

Master of Magic was inducted into GameSpy's Hall of Fame in 2000, citing it as a visually stunning game with enduring replayability due to its randomness and large variety of spells.

Master of Magic still has yet to produce a sequel or remake. Steve Barcia had stated in 1997 that Master of Magic II would be ready by spring 1998 with new features, spells, monsters, and even a spell designer. However, Simtex was closed down in the same year. Microprose revealed it was developing a sequel on its own, but had to cancel the plans when the company's financial situation deteriorated in 2000.
