DESCRIPTION

     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.

     It includes an intelligent computer opponent, espionage,
     50 different life forms to be discovered, space and ground
     combats and much more.

NEW FEATURES

     Version 1.1 fixes all bugs that have been reported since
     the release of the first version. 
     I have also improved the graphics where I could and
     included optional random events like meteorites, food/energy
     losses, fleet accidents, stargate collapses etc.
     There is also a money system now which allows to sell
     food to the EMPIRE and buy some services in return.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

     Colonial Conquest is a PAL game, but it works on NTSC machines
     too (vertical screen scrolling). Besides this, it should work
