Slay is a turn based strategy game for 1 to 6 players. Your goal is to conquer the island by buying men and using them to capture your enemies' hexagons. By combining two men you can create a single more powerful man who is able to kill weaker men. The twist to the game is that the more powerful a man that you create is, the more expensive he is to maintain. Men cannot be un-bought so you must tread a fine line between building up your forces and not being rashly ambitious. Sneakily cutting an enemy territory in half to bankrupt one side of it is an essential skill to learn!

"I love this game! I play it all the time, and when I'm not, I think about wanting to play it." -

"This game is pure strategy! It's a work of genius. You need land to support all your little army dudes, so if you cut a dude's territory in half, everyone starves and turns into little white crosses. Brilliant AI. Engaging turn-based multiplayer strategy. Sid Meier, eat your heart out!" -

I love strategy games ... That's why I was delighted to find Pocket Slay, a wonderful turn-based strategy game for the Pocket PC. - Ellen Beeman,, June 2001

"...there's something immensely appealing about this kind of game on the Pocket PC." - Pocket PC Thoughts

"Once you get into the game, you find yourself hooked. Slay is a classic - easy to learn, impossible to master but, most important of all, a great deal of fun to play" -

"Slay is a lovely little Windows strategy game" - PC Review, April 1995

"You'll need all your cunning to beat the computer in an easy-to-learn game that's tough to master" - PC PRO, May 1995

"Slay is one of those strategy games that look easy but prove to be frustratingly addictive" - PC Zone, June 1995

"World domination through strategy. It's challenging, fun and strangely addictive" - PC Guide, July 1998

"At first glance, Slay looks elementary, but hidden beneath are cunning strategy elements that must be finely balanced for success" - PC Magazine, April 2001

"All I can say is if you don't spend 5 minutes downloading this all time classic you won't know what you're missing. Viva la Classic gaming!" -, July 2001

"As I write this, I'm still trying to work out whether I love or hate this game. I love it in the sense that it really is a great game- it's well thought out, it's simple but not so simple that it gets boring quick and there's a lot of tactics involved- not just pressing the buttons fast. However I hate it in the sense that it really is just a bit too addictive!" -

"The game is incredibly well designed" - PocketPC Magazine

"Pocket Slay is a turn-based strategy game that is so addictive it's impossible to put down. Refreshingly simple it has elements that make you come back time after time for another megalomaniacal slaughter." -

"Purely addictive and challenging strategy play do not come simpler or more enjoyable than this!" -

"Simply the most addicting game I have ever played on any computer." -

"Deceptively delightful. The graphics are simple, but the strategy is complex." -

"This simple game is suddenly eating up all of my free time. I have so many games, from PC to Playstation to XBOX, and I'm hunched over my laptop clicking on little men to take over other little hexagons." - The Independent Gaming Source

"Slay is hexagonal hypnotism, a skeletal wargame so perfectly honed it feels ancient ... It's a very satisfying business, cerebral thanks to luck-free combat, a subtle economic layer, and some fine AI programming, but not so demanding you can't face it after a beer or a hard day. One of my favourites." -
