Mega lo Mania review

ACE magazine: "About an hour of experimentation is required before you can really get into Mega lo Mania, but once you're in, you'll have serious trouble tearing yourself away. If there wasn't a SAVE game option, there might have been some very nasty cases of skeletons found sitting slumped over PC keyboards. It's all down to the insinctiveness of the design and the clever way in which the strategy has been constructed. Unfortunately, there's unlikely to be much compulsion to carry on once all the epochs have been conquered."

    We're running out of Elephants! (I think it was supposed to say elements but it sounded like elephants)

    I played Mega-lo-mania on the Sega Megadrive. I adored the game, just a fun strategy game with plenty of humour. An original idea which made it stand out from the Sim Cities, Command & Conquers, Populus games of the time. Worth a bit of a go!
