Battle for Wesnoth

1.14.9
25 September 2019

Fantasy-themed strategy game.

Overview

Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based strategy game with a fantasy theme.

Build up a great army, gradually turning raw recruits into hardened veterans. In later games, recall your toughest warriors and form a deadly host against whom none can stand! Choose units from a large pool of specialists, and hand-pick a force with the right strengths to fight well on different terrains against all manner of opposition.

Wesnoth has many different sagas waiting to be played out. Fight to regain the throne of Wesnoth, of which you are the legitimate heir... step into the boots of a young officer sent to guard a not-so-sleepy frontier outpost... vanquish a horde of undead warriors unleashed by a foul necromancer, who also happens to have taken your brother hostage... guide a band of elvish survivors in an epic quest to find a new home.

200+ unit types. 16 races. 6 major factions. Hundreds of years of history. The world of Wesnoth is absolutely huge and limited only by your creativity - make your own custom units, compose your own maps, and write your own scenarios or even full-blown campaigns. You can also challenge up to 8 friends - or strangers - and fight in epic multi-player fantasy battles.

This is an outstanding example of a free, open-source game. In every aspect that really counts, it excels. The AI is extremely good, head and shoulders above many expensive strategy and fantasy RPGs. The 2D graphics have matured markedly since its earlier versions, and a lot of effort has gone into balancing the various creatures you can play and fight. Be warned, this game is not easy, and is extremely addictive! Regular saves will save a lot of grief! A very big well-done to the development team for this one.

The download link for 1.13.7 is not for Mac, use the "Developer website" link. Mac OSX's current version to this date 1.12.5.

This right here is the shit! Man, what a game. I'm still in awe. Addictive as hell and fun all the while, Battle for Wesnoth is a classic in my books. It was kinda tricky to learn at the start but I love it, nevertheless. Its free and has a good storyline. Mr.Developer take a bow!

Despite the listed system requirements of 10.5 Leopard, v1.10.3 works fine on my USB 2 iMac running 10.4 Tiger. Though it might not be a bad idea to hang onto the previous version just in case.

I have had nothing but crashes since switching to Lion. It always crashes when I switch to full screen mode. Does anyone else have this problem.

The developer has created an addicting game for strategy player. I have found myself quite enamored with the level of complexity and fun this turn based "war" game. There is another game that was quite addicting for me and that was the game Close Combat that was bought and destroyed by MS. The game play was fun and exciting. I wish the author of this program could make one similar to that game but more updated than the original. I know that they still have some of these available, but it is seen only in the Windose world.

Back in the late 80's early 90's, there were a series of games for the PC called Warlords. This game is a close cousin, updated quite a bit. If you remember and like Warlords, you'll love this game. As everyone says, it's addictive. It combines the concept of "leveling up" and traditional fantasy themes usually seen in RPGs with turn-based strategy. If you play games like CIV for the battles, you'll really like this game a lot. It's all battle strategy. You use units (varied, all from traditional fantasy) and move them around in a similar fashion to board games like Risk or Axis and Allies. Of course, these are much more sophisticated, akin to CIV, where each unit has different strengths and weaknesses, impact on other units, skills, movement points, etc. Best of all, you can "level up" characters to a certain degree, and keep them from one board to the next within a campaign. It's rich and robust. I can't believe gameplay this good is available free.
