The Great War of Prefectures Tips and Hints
1. Save game before you launch an invasion to the nearby prefectures.
2. Load game if you are unable to capture the prefecture.
3. Think why you could not win it, was it too little soldiers? They have too many defenders/medics/archer?
4. If your men are going down fast because of the archers, use “hold” mode and drag it to the archer position
5. This allows your men to take down the archers/medics so they won’t kill more of your armies.
6. Use “Aelous” strategy to boost your soldier’s movement speed to reach enemy range units quickly.
7. To conserve money, use Green Giants against enemy army. Those guys can endure lots of damage!
8. 6 green giants assisted with medics and samurai is powerful to take over any prefectures.
9. To make an invincible army, group many medics, defender and knights.
10. Quickly conquer as many regions/prefectures to earn more money!
11. Make sure your prefecture isn’t empty without any army. This will tempt enemies army to take over!
12. If you notice any empty enemy prefecture, send 1 soldier there to capture it. Easy capture ^_^
13. Prevent enemy from creating Green Giants for capturing their prefecture that has Giant Magnetic Field!
14. Use “Aelous” Strategy to speed up your soldier movement to reach to the enemy side quickly!
15. Use “Helios” Strategy if there are few range enemies.

The Great War of Prefectures Strategy
Each time you construct a Strategy Laboratory in a prefecture, you will earn additional strategy.
However, the first 2 strategy is sufficient, and with a strong army, enemy strategy could not defeat you.
With more than 10 green giants, you can defeat any enemy army even though they have all strategy, which
includes Zeus, revives 60% of the dead. They will be crushed easily by Green Giants swinging mace.
Aelous – Increases speed by calling the god of wind.
Helios – Increases attack power by calling the god of sun.
Gaia – Increases defense power by calling the god of earth.
Erebus – Quickly withdraws military by calling the god of shadow.
Hephaestus – Rebuilds barricade by calling god of smiths.
Hades – Attacks enemies by calling the god of the underworld.
Asclepius – Heals soldiers by calling the god of healing.
Hemera – Freezes enemies with strong radiance by calling the goddes of light.
Eos – Revives all dead soldiers as Skeletons by calling the goddes of dawn.
Zeus – Revives 60% of dead soldiers by calling the king of gods.

The Great War of Prefectures is a flash game based on the popular game called Shogun: Total War Warlord where your objective is to capture all provinces/prefectures/regions to unite Japan / the whole country. The flash game is pretty interesting as you can build armies, and use them to invade nearby prefectures. You can give orders/commands to your group of soldiers with “Will” mode to allow them freely kill, or “hold” mode that does not allow them to freely move, but you can point them where to move. This is essential to take down the enemy range units that are far behind the battle field. Each prefecture have their own special natural powers which are listed above. It could either boost your defense, earn more money or even spawn/train a new unit after a few days. There are 47 prefectures to capture, but does not include 4 more prefectures which are owned by the aliens. The ending is pretty special since there are new type of enemies but you can’t train/hire them. And the natural power within the alien territory does not work for you, only for aliens! The alien boss was pretty challenging but can be easily defeated by throng of Green Giants swinging maces.

The gameplay for this game wasn’t a smooth ride. Below is a list of points that I find useful to improve it.

Player cannot select all units instantly to move them to friendly/unfriendly prefecture. They are forced to click 1 unit at a time and this is quite a hassle when there are 47 prefectures to occupy and channeling soldiers from each prefecture is tiresome. The developer informed me there was another alternative way to select many units at once, which is double clicking on a particular unit. This selects all same unit type. You can also select units just by dragging from 1 corner and releasing it, similar to selecting multiple files/folders on your desktop.

Secondly, players are unable to build multiple buildings in 1 prefecture. Imagine a prefecture has a huge area, but it only supports 1 building? Quite surprised with this. Thirdly, most of the battle scenes are the same, and some natural powers can’t be seen in the battle field. For example, forest/rivers that helps boost the defense, but player could not see where is the river nor forest. Fourthly, the HP/Health bars are difficult to view. They are too small, and a little confusing at first. The invaders uses blue health bar while the defenders uses red health bar.

Fifth, player could not scroll the map using arrow keys on the keyboard. This is frustrating as most controls are done using mouse. Sixth, during the battle, if you have many types of soldiers, those tabs will overlap each other, making it difficult to click on them to set their modes from “Hold” to “Will”. Seventh, only 1 type of strategy can be used per battle. But shouldn’t that be not called as strategy? In my opinion, it’s more like spell casting on the battle like Heroes of Might and Magic.

Eight, you are only allowed to control a group of same unit type to attack the enemy at one time. But could not break them into 2 or more smaller groups. This looks to me like a group of units in 1 array or something.
Also, you can’t order your range units to attack a specific enemy. It basically attacks the closest enemy.

Last but not least, you can’t have soldiers from 2 or more of your friendly province to group up together and attack enemy prefecture, which can be done in Shogun Total War Map. It only limits to 21 soldier from only 1 prefecture at a time to attack it. Most of the buildings are not built because its not valued for space compare to Giant Magnetic Field and weird tower defenses that does not help in expanding one’s prefecture.

I’ll give The Great War of Prefectures a rating of 7/10 for its efforts and the graphics used in the game which are : simple round cute soldier, simple battle, and interesting “strategy” not found in Shogun: Total War and the surprising ending “Alien Invasion”.
