Description of Cavewars

One of the most original but underrated strategy games of all time, Cavewars is a refreshing fantasy wargame that adds the Z-axis to the traditional two-dimension game map, adding a whole new dimension (pardon the pun) to familiar turn-based play.

Each of the depth-dwelling races you can lead also has unique characteristics that call for different strategy to win, With unique and compelling gameplay, tough AI, random maps, and the variety of monsters and spells you can research make Cavewars one of my most favorite fantasy strategy games.

I've got original game . It works only when installation is proceeded from CD-ROM . The exe file which has been installed on your HD invokes to CDROM drive when game starts and also during the game , when music is going to change .Assuming it - installator CD- disc must be in your optic drive permanently .

I installed the game through D-Fend Reloaded as` reccomended, but it crashes after the first window, before I can choose my race. Any ideas what I've done wrong or is the file corrupted?
