8-Bit Armies

Before PlayStation or Xbox were a thing,  upgrading your PC was a viable option, had to buy some expensive video cards to enjoy a game or before the Internet was available at your home. Hell, even before games in CD-Roms, I used to play games on PCs too. Man, how I loved to play strategy games in my (now ancient) Win 95 PC. Command and Conquer, Age of Empires and Warcraft were some of the most desired games of that age which I could (barely) run them in my 14″ monitor. And now, here I am with 8-Bit Armies from the American studio Petroglyph Games, a fast-paced strategy game that captures the nostalgia of these old strategy games I loved so much and puts it in a modern game with a good retro feeling. Take your army to victory after reading our review.
