Description of Rorke's Drift

Plato gave birth to Rorke's Drift in 1990, with the help of Impressions as publisher. Cool strategy game, the player evolve in a historical battle (specific/exact), real-time theme with a isometric perspective.

Rorke's Drift was the first game in Impressions' little-known "Micro Miniature" series of games that are based on the same engine. Although it is a worthy attempt to portray the little-known battle of the Anglo-Zulu War, it failed to capture anyone's interest due to very poor user interface, shallow gameplay, and horrendous AI. Good perhaps as a historical lesson in how not to design a wargame, but little else. If you want a good game about the Zulu War, play ISI's Zulu War instead. Fortunately, the updated 1993 version slated for release in the U.S. was never out.

Everyone in the UK knows about this battle (mainly coz of the film). It's a shame Impressions ruined it. Really could have been a good game as many people are interested in this scenario. If anyone ever did get the source and pick up the baton for a "reboot" fix the user interface and awful collision detection which might have been down to low-res issues.

"Little-known battle"? Only a film made about it with Michael Caine...
