Endless Legend Game Screenshots

Endless Legend Game Screenshot
TBS genre iconFantasy style iconyear 2014 icon
Endless Legend is a another turn based strategy x4 game developed by Amplitude Studios - the ones developing Endless Space game series, but this one is in the fantasy genre. The game is good, as there is no bat TBS game at all, but it is hardly played, because of those heavy graphics, which I do not like. Like I always said, a TBS game should run fast, with clear and simple glimpse of the terrain. Some will say that this is the future now, and yet I think a 2d graphic like Craft the World or pseudo 3D graphic like Civilization 3 are not affected by time in any way!! Again, the game is very good and worth to be one of the best games ever, it is just my style to not embrace the heavy 3D :) there are countless of armies, heroes, resources, items and nice concepts, some of them explained in the following screenshots.

The Combat | Endless Legend Game Screenshot

The Combat | Endless Legend Game Screenshot
The combats in EL may be led manually, observed or autoplayed. All armies apply their skills in combat, like initiative to move first, ranged units to fire from distance, magics, healing and many more. The thing is that the orders are issued at the beginning of the round and not for every unit individually.

Managing the City | Endless Legend Game Screenshot

 Managing the City | Endless Legend Game Screenshot
Managing cities in EL game is a little different from any other game so far. First, the map is separated in regions, and every region may have one city. Where to build it in this region, remain a hard task. When the city is built, it will generate the amount of resources available from the hexes around the main hex. The population is not placed on the hex, but rather in a position to generate one single resource. How many resources the population generate is affected by buildings and heroes. To expand the city to gather resources from more hexes, we build districts. The number of districts depend on the population size and morale.

How to Build Ships | Endless Legend Game Screenshot

How to Build Ships | Endless Legend Game Screenshot
Playing the scattered map, there is one very important question: How to get your armies on the sea, to reach the continents full of strategic resources? To do so, we need to research the Shipyard science, situated down in the second era. When researched, the armies may immediately enter the sea, without the need to build any ships or buildings.

Hero Marketplace | Endless Legend Game Screenshot

Hero Marketplace | Endless Legend Game Screenshot
The hero marketplace is where we purchase heroes for armies or cities. It is available after researching a science in the second era, or by choosing to have it when designing your own empire. This option is quite useful, because heroes gets more expensive in time. If we have the hero marketplace from the beginning, the first hero may cost only 200 gold(dust). We may have unlimited numbers of heroes in Endless Legend.

Hero Skills | Endless Legend Game Screenshot

Hero Skills | Endless Legend Game Screenshot
Every hero have 3 branches of skills, and this branches are different for every different race. Some are used for leading armies and another for governing cities. This on the screenshot is a Broken Lord hero. Broken Lords race emphasize on dust(money), so the upper skills are so nice +15% dust. Also every hero starts with some natural skills, which are generated at random. They are very important if there is a number of 2 or 3 near that particular skill. For example the Dust Boost 2 skill will give +2 dust on population!

Dust Planets | Endless Space Game Screenshot
Now this is the money making system in ES 1. I was searching for this screenshot for some times. There are 6 arid planets in this system, but they were not all arid at first. After terraforming discovery we are able to change the planet's type. Arid planet bring the most of Dust, and dust is the money equivalent in Endless Space 1. Most of the planets have moons, which bring additional bonuses. It's a lovely view indeed!
