Description

Malkari is a 4X (explore, expand, exploit, exterminate) space strategy game in the tradition of Reach for the Stars and Master of Orion.

However, there is a new twist on the traditional concept here: your solar system has been devastated by a runaway star, ripping the old planets apart into a vast clutter of asteroids. Making things more difficult for long-range planning, the asteroids are all moving at their own particular speeds, so the planet next door may be on the other side of the system a hundred turns from now!

Now that your people have emerged from their long cryo-sleep, you must resume the old struggles against rival guilds...all the while trying just to survive in the strange new Malkari system.

A nice try, Malkari is full of good ideas and poor implementation. PCGamer77 (3027) 2.2 Stars2.2 Stars2.2 Stars2.2 Stars2.2 Stars

Trivia

Malkari was one of the last games released by Interactive Magic before it got out of the game publishing business.

As a result of I-Magic's reorganization, the massively multiplayer aspect of the game --which really set it apart from other spaceploitation games -- was nonexistent by March of 2000.
