Stronghold 3 Free Full Version on Macbook
The cult-hit 2001 Stronghold has enriched the classic real-time strategy genre in an unusual way. The amazingly complex management system of your fortress and complex yet accessible economic model has captivated thousands of players. The game set the bar high for RTS, and no subsequent project from the studio reached the glory of the first Stronghold. Numerous fans hoped Stronghold 3 for Mac OS would bring the series back to the podium. For developers from Firefly, it would be enough to take the concept of the first part and arrange it in an adequate graphic design. Unfortunately, we didn't see either one or the other in the case of Stronghold 3, but it still turned out to be interesting.
The game has remained almost the same. You take on the role of a feudal monarch whose power rests on the land and the working peasants. You must attract subjects to your region through favorable taxes and regular food and beer giveaways. Happy employees work hard to improve production efficiency and attract more people to your area. So you continue to rule until your small settlement becomes a full-fledged self-sufficient city. The system is smart and works great, or rather it worked great in 2001.
The game has several shortcomings that only experienced strategy players can notice. The interface provides little clarifying information. How much iron ore the miners produce, how quickly the wood gets to the warehouse, or how long it will take for the barracks to train a new soldier - the game does not provide information on these important issues. However, advanced gamers are used to complex economies that even tell you how much wood you can invest and how long it will take to replenish stocks. Stronghold 3 will not answer such questions, so you need to click on the warehouse building and, using the available numbers, try to track and evaluate how quickly the amount of raw materials is increasing.
The game on Mac OS successfully follows the first part in the construction model and the subsequent modification of the city. You can Download the game, and build rows of walls and prepare various traps for the invading armies, such as boiling oil or falling logs. The construction of fortification walls requires a certain layout. You have to guess from which side the enemies can enter the city, and create strategic narrowings in this direction, in which the horde of warriors will become an easy target for archers. The original concept of building the city and its subsequent protection has remained unchanged.
