Locators Synd Preview - Colonize the lands in this new C64 game preview
If you love 8bit gaming Indie Retro News is certainly the place to be today, as we have yet another retro game to show you and this time it's ' Locators Synd Preview ' on the C64. Released by Genesis Project, this is a high quality and in their words promising new strategy game, translated from German to English by WertStahl and linked by L.A.Style. Think of it as an early Colonization , Civilization, The Settlers mix, as the game revolves around locators in the 12 century responsible for founding settlements, settling, financing and much more to receive the favour from the Lord of the lands.
I did happen to play this game for a short period today and from what I can tell so far it most certainly does look like a promising strategy game with some lovely lush graphics indeed, such as the map screen. The problem was for me at least, is it's a very deep and involving game that requires a lot of time and learning to build such things as settlements. That's not to say I can't do it, I've played some heavy games in my time, but it's limited to what I can achieve today. So give it a go and let us know what you think :)
