One of the most original but underrated strategy games of all time, Cavewars is a refreshing fantasy wargame that adds the Z-axis to the traditional two-dimension game map, adding a whole new dimension (pardon the pun) to familiar turn-based play. Each of the depth-dwelling races you can lead also has unique characteristics that call for adapting your strategies to them. The unique and compelling gameplay, tough AI, random maps, and variety of monsters and spells you can research make Cavewars one of my all-time favorite fantasy strategy games.
