rules. I bought it about 6 days ago, and I must say it is one of the most engaging games I have ever played. (:
My creature is a cow, on the side of good. Despite my best efforts, though, he manages to eat my people occasionally when I'm not looking, as they run to pray at my temple. :P He knows how to use the store, fish, dance, and cast a water miracle. I control three villages ATM, and when I get home I plan to try to get ahold of those held by that snow guy. I might toss some rocks/fireballs over at him, because he's outside of my influence. Or I might set a bookmark in their town, grab a food miracle and zip over there, use it, and get out.
Anyone else got it?

Nope, don't have it now but 'soon as I get me one of them bran' new 3D 'celerators I definitely will.

I run it fine on a Matrox G400 with 32MB video RAM. In fact, I run it at 1240x680 at maximum detail. My computer is a PIII450.

I tell you, if I didn't have my money saved up for other things, and my video card weren't so bad (well, it's actually okay, but not very good by today's standards), I would buy that game... *drool*

I want it.. but I have to save the money for jcf hosting..
If we get a free host I will buy it along with a friend of mine.
(nm.. I might be getting it soon anyways.. I just read that we won't need the money for quite some time..)

BEST GAME EVAR!!!!1
Seriously, love it. My little ape is so funny... I could tell you stories but they usually involve flaming poo (biggest mistake I ever made was teaching him lightning and fireball).

Woosh, big day today in black and white. I moved my creature into a 5th town I wanted to take, from lethys. So along walks my creature, (who BTW can cast food/wood/water miracles, harvest grain and reassign disciples. I plan to teach him more. he's still small though), and as soon as he enters lethy's domain, he gets set on fire by about five consecutive lightning bolt miracles. I move him out and heal him, and rain on him to put out the fire (:
Then along comes lethys' wolf type creature. He looks about the size of mine so I pick the fight. My poor cow gets w00ped by the wolf, almost died on me. I was angry, so I decide to cast some lighting on the wolf. I charge up the miracle, and hit the wolf with it...I neglected to notice that the wolf was right in the middle of the town I wanted, and I set half the villagers on fire. (: I did get the town though, and fried the wolf, although he didn't die. As soon as I took the town, Nemesis came in and wiped out my ally reeeeeeaaaaaaalllly quickly, and took the bit of the Creed which was in my allies nice little turtle. (I want a turtle (: ). So I'm planning to take out lethys, which I know I can do, and then deal with nemesis. *shudder* unless something else happens (:
I'll keep you all posted, as if you cared at all. :P

My brother-in-law offered to buy it for me, and I actually told him we could buy it for F. Quist. Then, we decided against it. (How much must it cost to ship stuff from the US to.. where F. Quist is.. Holland? F. Quist: Netherlands!)
April 13th, 2001, 09:19 PM
No, I don't have it, yet. My computer needs to be upgraded first before I can play it.
April 14th, 2001, 01:09 AM
Lol.. no idea FoD..
I believe it was like $3,99 or something.. I remember something like that when ordering hh98
April 14th, 2001, 08:58 AM
I have played some black&white at matjong's house.. The game is almost unplayable on his 400 mhz comp.. but it was fun nonetheless. http://jazz2.nagcentral.com/forum/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
I am going to buy it as soon as easter weekend is over.. or maybe the week after
(if we don't have to pay for hosting..

I've just purchased and played it yesterday, and allow me to say it's great, very fun and captivating. One of the better games I've purchased in a while.
April 14th, 2001, 12:48 PM
Lethys took my creature! Waah!
Actually, things are much quieter without him around. I had controlled the entire second island, but when I destroyed Lethys' temple, I found a way to get my creature back, so I went through the vortex, and started anew :P
My poor creature is being tortured by Lethy's. ): I have to capture 3 villages to stop him--I've gotten two. (:
So far so good.
Will keep you posted (:

Slow on a 400? ouch ... what kind of video card does he use?
April 14th, 2001, 10:03 PM
the game is pretty cool but the controls aren't all that good. I had the tiger creature and almost got to meet the huge creature at the beginning of the game and for some strange reason he quit moving *lol* oh well.... back to the temple http://jazz2.nagcentral.com/forum/images/smiles/icon_razz.gif
April 15th, 2001, 06:12 AM
My bro bought it yesterday and i find it quite amusing.
Well...just wanted to say it runs fine on our PII-400 MhZ (128 MB RAM, 12 MB Voodoo2 acclerator). 600*480 Pixels, High Detail.
April 15th, 2001, 10:19 AM
That's with a voodoo accelerator.. my friend doesn't even have a 3d accelerator. http://jazz2.nagcentral.com/forum/images/smiles/icon_mad.gif.. and 64 mb of ram.
Ohwell.. I might be getting it soon.. I hope.. (otherwise I'll have to kill myself *dramatic string music plays*)

I WANT THAT GAME!!! heh

Its pretty fun, but takes too much time
April 16th, 2001, 08:22 PM
It takes too much time? I am finding it too easy, I am already on the second last land and my creature is only 30 (they grow to 80), so I am spending most of my time just playing skirmishes to get him bigger and get his personality refined. He has fought 16 battles against other creatures, and only lost 1. I have the technique down... its too easy now.
Oh well, it still a great great game, had fun playing it at the LAN too.
April 16th, 2001, 08:29 PM
Heh, just sounds like a 3D, more mature "Pokemon" to me (with, of course, your few (but large) differentials to escape copyright infringements ;P).
April 17th, 2001, 04:32 AM
Both Fquist and Newspaz got black&white. :P
The tutor level is sooo slow to play.. ohwell.
I am getting pretty cool framerates..
April 17th, 2001, 06:29 AM
It is definitely not too hard. It is quite easy to build a village, just make all the males disciple breeders, and wait for about 15 minutes. :P
Got my creature back, and lethys only has one town left. I think soon I'll be fighting Nemesis.
April 17th, 2001, 09:55 AM
Heh, I kinda like the first level. But where can I get that third rock :-/?
It's fun and it runs fine on my dad's PII400, Viper 550, 64 mb ram.
April 18th, 2001, 04:00 PM
I haven't really been playing recently, school :P
I hear by using gestures in the first level you can make a phone booth (:
April 18th, 2001, 04:07 PM
Its at Planet B&W under the easter eggs section. Just go here (http://www.planetblackandwhite.com/gameinfo/eastereggs/telephonebox/).
