三国志 中原の覇者 (Sangokushi - Chuugen no Hasha?) lit. "Three Kingdoms: Champion of the Center" is a strategy game developed by Namco for the Famicom and published in 1988. "Nam cot family computer game series" 42 bullets. It was followed by one sequel on the Famicom, San Goku Shi II: Haou no Tairiku in 1992, and by another sequel, released for the PlayStation Portable in 2006, entitled Chuugen no Hasha: Sangoku Shouseiden

This game, taking place in the late period of the Three Kingdoms rule over China, is a historical simulation with the goal of being the Chinese monarch who unifies China while maintaining a grip over their existing kingdom. Successful strategies must be accomplished through a limited number of available commands, such as instructing battle units who organize semi-automatically.

At the start of the game, you must answer a number of questions as part of a "hero type personality diagnosis." Upon completing the questions, you will be assigned one of six different rulers, each with different statistics. However, the number of questions is small, and it doesn't take a lot of trial and error to determine how to get the monarch you want.

Domestic politics and strategies[edit]

Four icons are displayed on the bottom of the screen, from which it is possible to issue commands. Players execute one instruction per region, and saving the game is considered one of those instructions. The number of the instructions a player can execute is determined by the number of countries under their control, and by the level you choose at the start of the game.

Castle command[edit]

State of the castle
It is possible to check the status of you castle-countries. You can freely see your own castle, but in the case of an opponent's castle, you must use up one of your instruction commands.
Movement of military commander
It is possible to move the military commander of the castle between countries that are linked by roads. However, you must keep at least one warlord in any of your castles.
Information collected
It is possible to order a military commander to gather information, and to look for a new military commander. Some may find the treasure and gold as well as other warlords. A commander's intelligence can affect the outcome. Monarchs can not go to gather information, nor can two commanders from one country.
There are three types of commands that can be executed; Increase the value of the land, development of industry, and development of the town. Gold is needed to perform most of those commands, and intelligence will affect the outcome.
Path searching

Storehouse command[edit]
