Chaos: The Battle of Wizards
ZX Spectrum Computer Game

Chaos was a classic turn-based strategy game (featuring wizards) for the ZX Spectrum home computer created by Julian Gollop. It was originally released by Games Workshop in 1985, and like many of his games, this one had a cult following during the 80's and inspired many other games such as Laser Squad and the Rebelstar series.

Turn-based games are rarely released these days, although the ones that are released still have a cult following, I guess. The most recent one I played was World in Conflict on my PC which I found a tad too complicated to get to grips with. Somehow, I still prefer the simplicity of the old 80's games.

The video review above tells you all you need to know about the Chaos game and is well worth spending seven and a half minutes watching if you want to bring backs some childhood memories. Or maybe you don't remember it at all, but just want to see what all the fuss was about!
