The Simple Wargame Creator was inspired by Wargame Construction Set on the Commodore 64 and Amiga. The players could play one of the supplied scenarios, or design their own using the editor that came with the game. Because SWC used IBM's text mode, scenario designers weren't limited to a set of pre-drawn sprites: any of 26 letters could represent any unit type they wanted to include. Because my skill in artificial intelligence wasn't up to the job of controlling arbitrary units in a sensible way, I copped out and made this 2-player only, so I don't play it now. It did inspire a later project I wrote for the Psion, Strife, which is much more playable.
