Colonial Conquest II
Colonial Conquest II is a complex space strategy game for one or two
persons. The aim of each player is to colonialize a maximum of the 26
earth-like planets that are shown on the universe map. Every planet
has its own surface composed of oceans, forests, mountains, deserts
etc where different machines (power-plants, irrigation robots, space
port etc) have to be built to guarantee a rapid grow and a high
production of the colony. People can direct the machines or work as
scientists which will make the technology level rise and allow new
inventions (battlestars, planet scanners, energy cannons etc). Each
player will have to explore the universe, build war ships for space
battles and troop transporters for the invasions of other worlds. The
game is easy to handle as it has an intuitive, mouse-based interface.
It also has decent graphics with some rendered HAM images.
Colonial Conquest II is a sequel to Colonial Conquest.
Many bugs have been removed and hundreds of details
improved. The new and outstanding features are:
- Intelligent computer opponent.
In the one player mode, the computer will simulate a
highly aggressive alien race that colonizes planets,
explores the universe, performs coherent attacks, invades
planets and uses the surviving population as slaves for
a maximum material production.
- Espionage. Spy satellites can now scan planets or view
them from space.
- 50 different alien life forms that can be discovered.
- Army forces have to be constructed to defend planets or
- Lots of new objects & space ships.
- Title music, more graphics.
- Background story.
When playing in the two player mode, a new aim can be
to be incorporated in a huge empire that is not interested
in the small colonies at the begining. Empire points are
distributed among the players for discoveries, production
and fleet force. The first player who has reached a certain
amount of empire points is incorporated and wins the game
which means that the two player do not necessarly have to
Colonial Conquest is a PAL game, but it works on NTSC machines
too (vertical screen scrolling). Besides this, it should work
on ALL Amigas with MORE THAN 1MB of RAM.
Use Left-Amiga + A to multitask.
