Rare game

Recommended Posts

Hi all... anyone here remember a game from the 90's called "Legend of the Dragon Island" ??? I asked about it at game shops, they don't have.

I even searched google, but had only 1 or 2 results :( .. Maybe I misspelled the name.

It's a strategy game about three nations, i remember two only, the Samurai (yellow color, and their hero unit is an infantry samurai), then Tang's Bandits (red color, and their hero unit is cavalry with pike) , but the third nation i forgot their name ( all i remember their color is blue and their hero unit is cavalry with a mace ).

The game reminds me of Romance of Three Kingdoms + there are magicians. Does it ring a bell, anyone ?

Hello there! I am from the future! If anyone can read this I know of the game you're talking about. It's called Legend of Dragon Island and very Warcraft 1/2-esque. I have a copy of the game lying around my house somewhere and can tell you a little about it.

 

There are 3 factions: Tang Bandits (Chinese), Shilla (Korean) and Samurai (Japanese). Each had similar units and structures but they also had specialised units that could be summoned from an Ashes Tower. I believe there was a Dragon, Turtle and Tiger respectively. There was also a Tombstone where the souls of your mortal units would fly towards and gave you special abilities.

 

There were 2 resources: gold and food. Food would grow after every rainy season I believe. Gold had to be extracted on top of specific spots.

 

________________________________________________________________

 

Edit: some more stuff I'd like to add -
________________________________________________________________

 

There were dozens of missions and no multiplayer AFAIR. Tang Bandits had a fire sorceress chick that did insane damage granted she had the energy for it. You could build ships, simple siege units like ballistae and even PAPER KITES which had 2x the health of infantry units. 640 health kites vs 320 for archers, swordsmen and spearmen.

 

It would rain from time to time and this would help the crops grow again. Funnily the kite units would take damage over time and eventually get destroyed by the rain.

 

Each faction had a headquarters, barracks, dock, ashes tower, tombstone, siegeworks and various other typical RTS structures. It was very Warcraft 1/2-esque in style.

This doesn't seem legit.. 3 brand new users all coming to the same thread, 1 seeks info, the others give the exact info. Almost seems like a search-bate thread from a game dev seeking for people to look at their game. :/

oh, yikes just realized how old this thread is. :/ XD

So... One new necromancer, then..?

Sorry guys lol I remember reading this thread years back but couldn't be stuffed answering it. I suppose boredom led me here to necro this shizz. :D

The game in question is very rare, this is the only place where I've read anyone else mention it.

Hello, I'm just wondering if you guys still have a copy of the game Legend of Dragon Island? I really, really, really want to play it again. I remember I was not able to finish it when I was a kid since the campaign was really hard but I loved it. So guys please if you have copy, can you guys put it in a torrent or a download link? Thank you very much! :)

Welcome new faces!

 

Looks rare.... and old... someone is sure to have CD in a cupboard somewhere.

What I am wondering is why Chaos Lady is editing links out from 2008 when they were legitimate?

 

Yeah that was a bit weird... malware site?

Just causing chaos, I guess.

 

It's probably amusing her to no end that her actions from eight years ago are confusing us now.

No, the EDIT date was like, yesterday.

The POST was from 8 years ago.

 

THATS why we're confused :P
