If you've been playing Warlight for a long time and would like to experience a new kind of challenge, check out this scenario:
This has been my favourite single-player experience on Warlight thus far, and will tax your creativity, tactics, and resourcefulness in ways you likely haven't experienced before.
I created this challenge for Hallowe'en, but it took me a while to iron out the kinks. Now it is finally ready for the public.
The experience is more like playing a thematic boardgame than a regular game of Warlight. If you're looking for an unusual and really exciting single-player game, give this a try:
One mad, incomprehensible day, everything you have ever known is turned upside down, screaming and kicking. Civilization as we know it appears to have collapsed - you no longer have internet access, phone service, transportation... nothing.
You wake up staring at a blood-streaked ceiling at the hospital. The city is eerily quiet, except for a few gunshots and screams in the distance. It seems likely that your small group might be the only people who survived the Disaster.
Around you, the bodies of the dead, crashed cars, and pools of rotting blood and flesh litter the entire city.
To survive, you will need to explore the city to find resources, and start researching an antivirus to the mutagen which has turned the dead in the streets into shambling, flesh-eating monsters.
Much of the city is now being overrun by the slow, hungry, walking dead. They are numerous but you can easily outsmart and outrun them. (Zombies move slowly through the city, but you can run - by using multi-attacks - to escape when they approach.) However, the virus is mutating rapidly, so time is not on your side.
This is nothing like your typical Warlight game... be prepared to explore the city, be surprised, and give some thought to figuring out how to prosper in this map. Good luck!
Regular Warlight tactics might not serve you here: you will have to figure out how the map works, and what resources you need - food, water, electricity, weapons... - so you can increase your production. (Hint: You must research an antivirus from the hospital as you explore the city, and find resources in the order they appear in the DNA helix.)
Can you find a way to rebuild civilization before the hordes of the dead overrun the city?
You'll probably need to clear the research wing of the hospital first...https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?TemplateID=751078
1. Multi-attack is enabled, as are a number of cards. This represents your human speed and ingenuity - use them to outsmart the zombies.
2. Abandon and Blockade cards are particularly powerful, to help you build barricades against the encroaching walking dead.
3. The city is in terrible shape - many streets and buildings are broken down or covered in debris, so be careful as you explore (there are small wastelands strewn all over the map, and, in particular, they hold back the progress of research).
4: *** To enjoy the scenario, do NOT look at it before you play. There are many surprises, and not knowing what's going is part of the fun. ***
5. I think using a "deployment limit" (see my next post, below) is absolutely key to playing the scenario, as well. (Without it, it is too easy.)
If you get a chance to play, please comment here!
Be prepared to run for your life for the first 10 turns or so... the walking dead are everywhere.
