Cyber Empires Ad Blurbs (Atari ST)
Advertising BlurbsBack Cover - DOS:
CLASH OF STEEL TITANS.To the victor, the world.For one to five players, CYBER EMPIRES is a challenging strategy game of world conquest. And an explosive action game of battle between cybernetic juggernauts.
Each player starts off with a set amount of money and a country to control. Allocate your wealth to build a combination of capital structures for administration; fortresses for defense; and factories for constructing armies of giant cybernetic warriors. Large (but expensive) factories can build robots quickly; small, cheaper factories assemble them slowly. Choose from nine models of cyborgs, each with different size, armor, weaponry and terrain specialty.
A "Fog of War" option clouds your intelligence of enemy activities; you may want to spend some money to access spy satellites. Once you've got your country in order, it's time to deploy your army - and conquer!
All five players (human or computer-controlled) take turns plotting their moves. The computer randomly assigns who moves first.
During combat, you can slug it out in true arcade fashion, blasting enemy cyborgs with lasers, neutrino cannons, missiles and flame throwers. Or ask the computer to resolve every battle quickly and cleanly.
No matter which way you choose, you'll have a blast playing CYBER EMPIRES. After all, you get to play with money, big toys and enough power to conquer an entire world.
You'd have to be a cyborg not to.
