MicroProse Entertainment Software Catalog (1992):
    Command HQ creator Dan Bunten has done it again: created a compelling, addictive strategy game that's easy to learn yet difficult to master. Global Conquest is the first computer strategy game to support up to four players (human or computer), all of whom compete while exploring randomly-generated worlds via modem, direct link or LAN! In Global Conquest the emphasis is on exploration, as you conquer untamed regions of your world and prevent your opponents from doing the same.

Back of Box:
    Your state-of-the-art mobile command center surveys the terrain of an unknown world. Out there, under your leadership, are land, sea and air forces that must probe the surrounding geography while engaging the troops of three other military aggressors. Your challenge: absolute and total conquest of all the forces arrayed against you. And the faster you conquer, the faster your own forces grow.

    Sounds like a very challenging strategy game, doesn't it? Well, that's only a tiny sample of what confronts you when you play CONQUEST from award-winning game designer Dan Bunten, creator of COMMAND H.Q.™

    Make alliances with your enemies to overwhelm your common foe - but beware of betrayal!

    Face three cutthroat computer adversaries - each with a distinct personality!

    With a modem or direct link, you can also betray and conquer your friends or foes (up to four can play on two linked computers!)

    If the possibilities of CONQUEST seem infinite, well... that's because they are. This is one strategy engagement that's never the same game twice.
