Enclave is an older 3rd person view hack-n-slash game where you progress through small linear maps. Fight Orcs, Goblins, theifs and other monsters. The story is simple, the quests are linear, its a fun button masher for quick gaming satisfaction.
Follow my step-by-step guide on installing, configuring and optimizing Enclave in Linux with PlayOnLinux.

Enclave ran extremely well since it is a directx 9 game from GOG.com
I cranked everything to high and it supported high resolutions.
I was impressed with the texture quality and the lighting for such an old game.
Enclave should run on any laptop and maybe even some netbooks.
