Über dieses Spiel

Ascension to the Throne ist ein rundenbasiertes Strategiespiel mit RPG-Elementen. Der Held muss sich auf dem Weg zum Sieg in einer weitläufigen Fantasiewelt vielen Tests unterziehen, während ihn seine Feinde davon abhalten wollen, die Macht wiederzuerlangen und Rache zu üben. Gewinne neue Freunde, die dich bei der Rückgewinnung deines rechtmäßigen Platzes auf dem Thron unterstützen. Folge deiner Bestimmung und werde zum König – weise, tapfer und heldenhaft.

Der Held ist der letzte Nachkomme der Herrscherfamilie Illiar, die schon seit einer Ewigkeit über Eden herrscht. Doch die Zeiten ändern sich und nun wird das Schloss von verräterischen Feinden angegriffen, die die Familie des Prinzen töten und die Siedlung zerstören. Nur seinen Willen können sie nicht brechen. Ein sehr mächtiger Zauber eines Magiers katapultiert den Helden bis weit hinter die Landesgrenzen, sodass er von nun an auf sich allein gestellt ist – ohne Verwandte, Freunde, Armee und Geld. Er verlor alles, auf das er stolz war. Doch er ist noch am Leben und so wählt er den Pfad der Vergeltung.

Der Spieler entdeckt eine neue, faszinierende Welt voller Feinde und Freunde. Es gilt, Horden an Feinden zu vernichten und neue Anhänger zu finden, um den Königstitel zurückzugewinnen und den Thron zu besteigen.

Hauptmerkmale:

  • Nicht-linearer Spielverlauf mit offenem Ende
  • Bewegung in Echtzeit in der Spielwelt und rundenbasierte Schlachten in Einem
  • Groß angelegte taktische Schlachten für 22 Truppen (mit bis zu je 16 Einheiten)
  • Der Spieler ist nicht auf einzelne Missionen beschränkt. Er kann sich in der Spielwelt frei bewegen und sie erforschen. Die Spielwelt ist offen und der Spieler kann frei bestimmen, wohin er reisen möchte.
  • Originelles Konzept: Der Spieler schlüpft in die Rolle des Helden und anstatt Befehle zu erteilen und die Schlacht dann aus sicherer Entfernung zu verfolgen, nimmt er selbst daran teil. Doch er muss bedenken, dass er seinen Helden in der Hitze des Gefechts auch leicht verlieren kann.

So first off: If you have Windows 10, this game might not work! It works for me when I set it to use XP SP3 on compatibility settings, but the resolution isn't great with that for some reason.

Anyway. Wow, this game has surprised me. Strong RPG element, you play Alexander, King of Airath, and control him on his quest to regain his throne. Apart from travelling around the world on your quest, the other big element is turn-based strategy combat. It's fairly simple to understand and to get good at.

I thought after an hour that the game would take me about 10 hours to complete, having looked at the map. I got to what I thought would be the end of the game, and turns out there's a whole new world!

Some minor flaws in lack of attention to detail - spelling errors, occasional graphics bugs, but nothing that I feel spoils the game.

Enough difficulty that you can't just sail through, but not so difficult that you give up. For the price it's definitely worth it.

Graphics are difficult to look at but they manage. Controls are ok but it's difficult to see what quests you have, conersations are text based and combat is turned based that makes a weird mix that I do not find fun to play.

This game use to be great. I bought it again, and it is just sad. I can't even run it anymore. 10/10 on the ♥♥♥♥, but 0/10 on the actual game. Fix your ♥♥♥♥.

I can remember myself starting to play this game 9 years ago. I was amazed since the start. I was forced to quit playing too soon.
Then when I found it in a bundle I didn't think 2 times in paying for it. I play a lot of RPG and strategy games and it is funny for me that I feel so good by playing this old game.
In my opinion, it is a must to play for every RPGs lover.

Great game,

I have to say I am very impressed with this title. It came as a shock to me when I actually enjoyed the game.

At the beginning it can be very difficult especially for new players, ME!, however it gives a good amount of side quests for you to gain levels. Overall the story is quite good.

However, I feel as if the game was rushed towards the end because their was such a lack luster of side quest content. This felt as a shame to me but, it does not change me conclusion. Other then being short and rushed towards the end this game it great and worth the money.

Hope you enjoy!

Ich habe das Spiel bereits vor Jahren gespielt, beim Steam-Angebot habe ich sofort zugegriffen!
Klar, das Spiel hat viele Schwächen, der Schwierigkeitsgrad und die Unwissenheit, vor allem am Anfang, welche Monster-Gruppe man angreifen soll, aber ein Paar Quick-Save's / Quick-Load's später läuft die Sache.

Das Spiel ist eine Mischung aus Rollenspiel und Taktik à la HoMM, kein Part davon ist gut aber auch nicht besonders schlecht.

Mich erinnert das Spiel stark an Battle Mages, allerdings mit Rundenkampf.

Für die Paar €'s ist es sicherlich ein Blick wert, man sollte aber Frustresistenz von +100 haben.

This game is a really enjoyable mix of rpg, turn based tactical combat, and exploration. When I first saw it in the shop I was sceptic - the graphics looked quite dated and as an avid gamer in above mentioned genres I had never heard of the game, which is usually a very bad sign.

Approximately 2 minutes after installing this game I called for intravenous caffeine, because one thing was quite certain: I wouldn't be putting this game down any time soon.

You pick up the game as a king shortly after being stabbed in the back by your not so loyal royal court wizard, who had been researching black magic "to fight fire with fire, Sire, honest!". Last seen, our main protagonist exploded into shards of armor and rapidly disappeared towards the setting sun.

Unfortunately the nature of the sneak attack transported you to a far off kingdom where your name holds no weight, so you have to begin by organising money for food and shelter as well as to pay a few peasants with pitch forks to pose as your muscle. You have the choice to let your king fight in the melee (risky, as his death is an instant failure state) or to spend some of your hard earned experience points and gold to learn magic from the plentiful town mages you will find almost everywhere.

You have a limited number of spots in your vanguard that have to be carefully filled with units that compliment each other (nice hat archer, you look like Lobin the Hut!) and the strategy is further complicated by the fact that there is no resurrection of unique champion units.

There is also the so called "Authority", which regulates how much value your army can have at any given time. Therefore, no matter how much you want to have an army that is 100 % two hander swinging giants, chances are you will have to decide stringently between small numbers of strong creatures and 10 man squads of cheaper, faster units.

Authority is gained on level up, after the completion of quests, in certain dialogues (Just act noble, Mkay?) or by shamelessly bribing your soldiers with the contents of treasure chests, which reminds me sharply of other games we shall not name at this time.

Along the path you will recruit anything from peasants to giant highlanders (or are they celts? Either way they are 100% awesome), fight undead, abominations, knights and sorcerers, help other adventurers who often decide to follow you permanently or just for a short part of your journey, and generally have one heck of a blast conquering the poor unsuspecting country your court wizard deported you to.

But as you negotiate (sometimes using your mailed fist) your way to rulership, it soon becomes clear that dethroning you was only the first step in the plan of your previously favourite arch wizard. Partnerships will have to be forged if you hope to destroy the demons standing between you and revenge, so put on your wizard hat and your ring of smiting and get to it!

The game has an expansion pack that features another campaign, more units and other additions, but unfortunately said addon is so far not available via steam. Maybe if we beg Gaben...? :(

This used to be my favourite game when i was a child. I bought it after beatin Warcraft 3, and loved it a lot. I also replayed it a few times and enjoyed it every time. About a year ago i tried to play Kings bounty, but enjoyed it a lot less than this game. Maybe it's nostalgia, but i really love that in this game every unit is separate, when in KB it's just one unit with the number. It makes it a lot more fun for me.
This game may have bad graphics, but does this even matter? It's best part is the fighting system. It's not too long, so i didn't get bored with figths, which are, by the way, pretty different each time. If you played KB, you should know what i'm talking about. In Ascension it also matters how many units you put into one cell. It may be 1 weak soldier, which can be a bait, or a group of them. In the second scenario the group is more likely the distract the enemy, they can even protect more important units with their own bodies, which you couldn't do in KB, but the also can be destroyed by one hit of the wizard, while putting them into separate groups makes it longer to take them all down.
The rpg part is not very developed, this is true. There is no skill tree or anything like that. But if you choose to be a wizrd, which is a wise choise, you definatly will enjoy finding new spells, like triple fireballs or distraction. Most of them can be bought learned from wizards in towns, but some, like fast travel spell, are hidden on the map. However, if you want the game to be more challanging, make your hero a warrior and don't learn spells.
The world is divided into three continents. The land of humans, the land of orcs and barbariabs and the land of demons. Each of them is full of characters, secrets and side quests. It's really interesting to explore in ths game. If you do, you may find a worthy treasure.
Side quests in this game are rather small, but more interesting, than just "kill-bring" ones. There are such quests as drinking competiton, detective quest. In most of those you can express your will. For example, in the detective quest you can either punish the criminal you find, or take his money + keep him available as a merchant.
There are also several items in this game, which cost a lot, A LOT of money. You'll have to complete some side quests in order to buy them. Those are armour, rings etc. Funny thing: you won't be able to buy some items. Merchants will tell you that they are no use for you. They are actually useful for a main caracter of the sequel, which is sadly not on steam. Those items are easter eggs of some sort.
I found the plot interesting. The final battle is pretty epic. Plus there are some interestings parts of the main quests, in which you, for example, will have to get rid of all your weapons and armour, your whole army too, and dress as a monk in order to enter a city, taken over by a demon. Hten you'll have to fight him without all things you left behind. If you're a wizard - it's difficult. If you're a warrior - good luck.
The in-game journal is done decently. It doesn't say "kill 10 rats, dragonborn". The notes in it always fit the atmosphere, and, if you read them, may contain useful hints.
I definatly recommend this game.

This game truly could have been fantastic. It is a tad difficult at the beginning when your hero is too weak but then becomes quite enjoyable as things balance out a bit. By about 1/3 of the way through you are becoming so powerful that the battles are pretty much a joke. A few minor tweaks and the story, battles, and overall gameplay would shine. It is pretty much set up so that whoever acts first in the battle comes out on top.
All the same, it was 15-20 hours of decent fun.

First time played it when it came out on torrent's got a pirated version. Finished it like 4x, when I saw this I was really happy and wanted to buy it. The game is fun, it's very playable even with old graphics, engine, bugs etc. They don't matter, it's fun and can be playind over and over with different combat style. If you like games like Heroes of Might and Magic then you need to try this game out. Love the game, still rocks, would suggest anyone to get it for only 3,99€

This game is pretty good and definitely worth the price. If you are concerned with graphics then look at the pictures before you buy(I think the graphics are decent but not up to date). If you are having trouble in the beginning read some guide or walkthrough before you decide the game is bad or to hard. Exploring and finding the shrine looking things and enemies to fight makes the game easier. You generally want bonuses to authority if you have a choice between bonuses unless you want the game to be pretty hard. Making your character a mage or using good ranged troops probably makes the game easier.

Pretty rough start but once you get the hang of it, a great game with a good story and 20hours of gameplay to offer to any one considering grabbing this game.The combat is turn based and the hero tho he can fight is best kept faaaaar away from the front lines until he got the hitpoints to take all the damage that will be thrown at him.

When starting this game you are a weak hero that will depend on his cannon fodder, you will die allot learning this game, once you got the hang of it i suppose the combat can get a bit repetitive but not for long depending on your pace.Units requires Authority, that you acquire from chests,statues and when you level up.The units you can hire are limited but reappear over time in case you screw up badly so no need to worry about running out of cannon fodder any time soon.

Items seems to only be usable by the hero , a real shame really but oh well, not much of a collection any ways.You can buy rings from merchants that boost your or your soldiers stats and the blacksmiths can sell/give you a weapon and armor to help with progressing from place to place.A great trick i learned in the game was to buy a ring that gives authority, wear it and buy a extra soldier or two and then swap it with a ring that boost the soldiers stats.

Time is on your side in this game as there seems to be no time limits, but there are some crash issues with the game but all in all it should not happen allot, but best to save offten to be on the safe side.My game crashed a couple times and at the end of the game as well, but luckly auto save does save the game at each battle so no need to rage over having to do all the non stop fights from scratch tho you still got to do the last fight over again.

Other then a couple crashes, no other bugs exept a one time strange bug that teleported me on the top of a mountain that surprised me as i was far away from the mountain walking down, funny and harmless as it turned out i could walk down without getting stuck.

All in all i had a blast and would rate this game at a solid 5 out 6 stars.
