This Game is a Winner
Shingen the Ruler ticks all the boxes of a strategy game. Varied battlefields, conditions, options, units, and abilities... Check. A scalable challenge where some of my enemies are accessible in the beginning, but I can continue to face more challenging enemies as the games go on... Check. Replay-ability so that I can try to win other ways... Check.
Don't miss this game because it seems weird. It is a keeper. Tip: Hit your weakest enemy with a small contingent of troops out in the field a few times, always retreating before he ever hits you. This way, your troops slowly gain experience while his do not. Soon, you will be higher level than he is!
