From the Game Manual / Box
CAVEWARS puts you into a subterranean fantasy world of vicious combat and empire building. Each player starts with one city deep below the surface of a hostile planet. Beginning with primitive weapons, a small knowledge of magic and a diminishing supply of metal; you must explore, expand, mine metal and conquer to survive. Build better weapons, learn to forge stronger metals, improve your knowledge of magic and there will be no end to what you can build, summon or unleash upon your enemies. Lag behind in the race for resources and technology and you will be crushed.
- A 3-dimensional world -- 5 levels of caverns and tunnels.
- Customize your armies, select their weapons, armour and mounts. Build catapults, cannons -- even mobile artillery and rocket launchers when your technology allows it!
- Random map generator allows you to build infinite subterranean worlds!
- Play up to four other computer or human players.
