Battles can be won by breaking the enemy army, or by achieving a series of historical objectives. The alternate victory conditions combine, with the reaction system, the battle cards and the between battle campaign decisions, to create incredible replayability. Moreover, as each battle in the campaign is unlocked, it becomes available for single player skirmish play.
For those seeking a living opponent, Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great includes support for multiplayer over the internet and local network (via TCP/IP). Any of the campaign battles can be selected, or players can choose one of the two special multi-player scenarios: Bactria and Elysium.
Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great does not have a steep learning curve ? to the contrary, it?s easy to pick up, fun to play, and difficult to master. The producers believe that historical strategy gamers, miniatures gamers, and fans of Alexander will be interested in this title for its value as a game, and as a way to experience the campaigns of Alexander and test themselves against perhaps the highest of benchmarks in military history.
Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great is tentatively scheduled to be released in October 2004.
