very enhanced version of the public domain product, this offers an intriguing simulation of global-type warfare. Emphasizing aspects of land, sea and air, the simulation is very interesting, although it does take a long time to win. Design-your-own options and easy user interface make this a player.
 
Those who played the public domain version will be impressed by the addition of escorts, patrolling, click and drag interfacing, capacity for cruisers and battleships to bombard, and increased destroyer speed. As in previous Interstel releases, a la Star Fleet I, the playability of an already successful system has been significantly enhanced. In fact, it has been made too user friendly. The game flows so smoothly that it is hard to break away when needed, such as when the phone rings, nature calls, or the boss says,"Quit playing that game and get your review written!"
