Game Zone: Sacred Citadel

by daiashi

About The Game

Three warriors unite against an evil that threatens to enslave the once peaceful world of Ancaria. Lord Zane's Ashen Empire has created an army of Grimmocs, modified Orc henchmen at war with the Seraphim. Only when these heroes unite and use their skills to support each other they will stand a chance.

There are four playable character classes, the Seraphim Mage, Safiri Warrior, Ancarian Ranger and the Khukuri Shaman, each with a different skill set that can be further individualized through RPG features and collectible items. Each character will also have the ability to dual-wield two exchangeable weapons and use combo attacks, all of which combines into a fluid and unique arcade game experience with sophisticated graphics and spectacular effects. The player will also be able to ride mounts, use war machines and spend his hard earned cash in towns all over the world of Sacred Citadel.

Sacred Citadel will also offer an engrossing multiplayer mode. Up to three players can join forces against their enemies in coop mode.

Some Gameplay Screenshots

Getting It To Run

This game was installed using Playonlinux, which is available through Synaptic. After you have Playonlinux installed, click on the game tab to find Steam. It should install Wine version 1.5.25.

After Wine is finished and Steam is updated, search for the game in the store and download the demo. It ran very well on my computer, with a 2.6 dual core AMD processor and nVidia 9600 with 4 gigs of RAM. You may have to set the game window to "on top," since my taskbar was visible until I did this.
