- Historical Battle (specific/exact), Real-Time
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.
