Taste of Power is a PC game about the alternative world of Middle Ages in the RTS genre. It shows the confrontation between Europe, China and the Middle East for dominance on the continent. The game combines the mechanics of StarCraft and Total War: the player needs to gather resources, develop cities and build new settlements, learn technologies and fight in large-scale battles.
A distinctive feature of the game is a variety of game mechanics. The game features various types of artillery, engineering troops and alchemy. In addition, each side has a multitude of unique troops:
The warriors of Europe can form the construction of the “Phalanx”, build a wall of stakes, invoke the Crusaders, and have gunpowder artillery. European support troops can build fortifications, monks can raise the morale of the troops, and spies can revolt in enemy cities.
Chinese troops can create smoke screens to protect against enemy arrows, provoke support for Mongolian horsemen and have early rocket artillery. Chinese support troops can set up medical tents, traps and poison grenades.
Timurids is the third game side. They are represented by the warriors of the Middle East. War elephants, chariots with incendiary oils, engineers who can build underground tunnels and a lot more will be under your control.
The economy of the game is similar to a town-planning simulator in scale: the houses are built around the administrative center, the workers who collect resources, process them and carry finished goods to the warehouse, come out of them. In this case a player needs just a few clicks to manage cities. In addition to this, you can learn a lot of technologies in the game, trade and loot caravans.
