Description of Sword of Aragon

Regarded by many wargamers as THE best fantasy wargame ever made, SSI's Sword of Aragon is a true precursor of later classics Conquered Kingdoms and SSI's own Fantasy General.

Set in the Aragonian Empire, you are heir of the late Duke of Aladda, and your task is to once again extend Aladda's dominion and eventually crown yourself king in Tetrada. Executing your father's will properly means raising and equipping an army, then venturing forth to do battle against the dastardly foes threatening Aladda and its surroundings.

Your success in Sword of Aragon depends on careful allocation of precious resources, astute military planning, and deft combat maneuvers. Knights, priests, warriors, mages, rangers, cavalry, infantry, and bowmen are some of the units you can recruit, and in true AD&D fashion, you can equip them with different armor types. Nothing in the game will strike anyone today as a big deal, but back in 1989 it was a revolutionary title that attracted many non-wargamers to the genre.

Excellent AI and addictive gameplay help Sword of Aragon remain one of the most playable and replayable fantasy wargames ever. Two thumbs up!

has anyone have the full 500 pt walk-through? I try this one http://www.cheatbook.de/wfiles/swordofaragon.htm but not very comprehensive.

Also I discover 2 cheats in this game. One is related to recruiting, one is related to Mage. Did anyone copy me :)

Back in the day, this game was on the top of my playlist. I spent hours and hours playing it but was never quite able to conquer the game. I do recall there was a bug that fuzzed up the game if toward the end of the game you attacked a certain town without having already conquered another one nearby. Nonetheless the AI in the game was very good and was able to predict your future moves. In today's age, it wouldn't get a second look, it is sad it has not be updated with current graphics, it would probably sell then.

I've lost months of my life while I was in primary school to this game. Great game, its a little easy though

Fix for "hero stuck in the corner" bug?
Sometimes when I get a hero, he appears in the top left corner of the screen instead of with my army. He's stuck on the island and can't get off! Does anyone know how to kill him or move him? The game only allows me to have a limited number of heroes, and this marooned hero counts against my limit! A bugfix or a workaround would be greatly appreciated. I know you can edit the game's files but I can't figure out how to change the location of heroes.

Here's a screenshot of the hero stuck in the corner.

Please contact shirtsnb@gmail.com if you have a fix, thanks!

I have been thinking about this game lately! I used to play it on my XT, with a 12mb hard drive. Still one of the best and most addictive games ever made.

I agree! was looking for it for SO long online- my friend borrowed mine 2 decades ago, and he does not have a clue as to where it is :-( ! Thanks!
