Boring stuff about me:
I have lived in California most of my life. My first introduction to personal computers was as a freshman in high school, 1980. The computer room had Commodore PET comptuers, with the chiclet keyboard. We had to learn the basics and take a test in order to be able to play with them. My first games were loaded from a cassette tape, "Press Play to Load". There was a Warlords game that we played to death.
Then, along came my Apple II with a floppy disc drive and 16K of RAM!!!, and all the games from SSI, and their wargame collection - Computer Bismarck, Computer Ambush, Germany 1985, etc. Hellfire Warrior and Temple of Apshai were my first RPG dungeon crawlers.
From there, everything went crazy when PCs came about, and it was all uphill from there.

I worked at Mediagenic (which became Activision) for six years, then Electronic Arts for 15 years as a game tester, Assistant Producer, and finally Associate Producer. My major accomplishment was Associate producing the Jane's line of flight simulation games by EA, along with a ton of other games. I was lead tester for Road Rash for the Genesis, and designed half the tracks for Road Rash 3DO version.

This is such a brilliant game! I am about 2/3rds of the way through the game, so I will wait until I've finished it before I write my full review.

But, for now, this is a wonderful tactical puzzle combat game, that really doesn't feel like a puzzle game at all. Each mission is super unique and designed by hand, and every one of them feels completely new and interesting. There is always a new tactic or strategy to think about with each and every mission. The puzzle nature of the missions is strong with this one, but it really doesn't feel like that most of the time. There are multiple ways, and multiple builds, that will succeed in these battles. It's really a unique design that I am in love with!

I am having the time of my life playing this game, and can't wait to finish it and post my full review.

All I can say for now is, if you like turn-based tactics, and don't mind a bit of the puzzle aspect of the missions, please give this game a try. I want these developers to continue making brilliant games like Druidstone!

[UPDATE] Finally, after 41 hours, I have finished Druidstone: The Secret of Menhir Forest. I three starred all missions on normal mode. Didn't get every achievement, because that's not a big deal for me. I don't think I'll replay it in hard difficulty. I have too many other games to enjoy, but this was a delight from start to finish.

What a brilliant game this was. I HIGHLY recommend it to any turn-based combat fan. Quality game, and I enjoyed every minute of it.
