20 years ago in retro gaming: 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.

Strangely enough, no one made a sequel. As I write, a remake, Worlds of Magic, is in alpha stage and still in early access, but the release date of the final version is not known.

  • Publisher: Microprose
  • Developer: SimTex
  • Platform: MS-DOS
  • Released in: 1994
