Henry Morgan, a Welsh adventurer/pirate with the unofficial backing of the English Crown, raided Spanish bases in Panama in the late 1600s. Relive one of the most difficult and bloodiest of these - his sacking of Panama in 1671, fighting the jungle, Native Americans and Spain's soldiers,missionaries and settlers - and find treasure and glory. Multiplayer also : ; ; ; No
Morgan was a nasty guy - you'll love being him. OldGrex again has produced a scenario that is great fun to play and beautiful to look at. I thought his Jeremiah Johnson scenario had a really fine terrain map, but Morgan's Panama Raid is a cut above even that one. The jungles of Panama come alive in this scenario. If you want to see how to use shallows, elevation, cliffs, critters, and make realistic rivers and streams, this is the scenario for you. It also is a challenging game, with sneaky little situations and bad guys who don't know when they're defeated. Sack the town of Portobello and establish your base of operations. Sharpen your machetes and work up a sweat hacking your way through the narrow pass to the west coast while dodging enemy projectiles, then invade the Pacific lowlands and seek your prizes while merrily making mincemeat out of everyone who gets in the way. One hint - explore the map! You'll be happy you did and you'll find winning easier. The bitmap is sparse (hence the 4 for Map Design, combining terrain and bit maps) but accurate and helpful, as are the instructions, hints, history, etc. Very refreshing after seeing so much unreadable prose and missing maps. Definitely play this one.
