ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
On the graphics front there is little to distinguish this version with that for the Amiga. The sound though is quite a bit thinner and unconvincing. Where the ST really scores is on speed. The Amiga can't make use of its graphics hardware for 3D graphics, and the ST therefore has a slight edge.

ST Format
With everyone else struggling to make games more and more realistic and super-fast, finding something both unremittingly addictive and graphically original is rare. Conqueror has both these qualities in abundance and deserves immense success because of them.

Computer and Video Games (CVG)
The Amiga version was ported across from the ST version, so there aren't any differences apart from a marginally faster frame update.

The One
On the whole though, the gameplay more than compensates for these chinks in Conqueror's armour. The three types of mission are absorbing and draw on genuinely different types of skill. As computer controlled opponents have three different overall tactics and a degree of artificial intelligence, the strategy sections should work out differently every time. Tank simulation purists might winkle their noses, but everyone else is in for plenty of sophisticated fun.

The Games Machine (UK)
Conqueror's big fault is its awkward controls; nine keys or four keys plus mouse for turret aiming/firing. It's best for a friend to be at the mouse and stick to the steering yourself, but the solo gamesplayer's in for a testing time. The strategy elements are nothing complex but increase lasting appearance. Conqueror is a relatively ordinary release but still worthy of purchase.

Power Play
Was ist das: Es hat 3D-Grafik, gab's bisher nur für den Archimedes-Computer, hat eine frustrierende Steuerung und macht trotzdem Spaß? Falsch - es ist nicht "Virus", sondern das Nachfolge-Programm namens "Conqueror", das endlich auch für andere Computer-Systeme erschienen ist.
