Conquest Of The New World is a game much similar to Civilization in some ways. You start the game with your ship. You will have to make landfall with your units and get contact with the natives. You can either attack them or start to trade with them similar to things like in Civilization or Colonization.
The control of your units is a new way of controlling. You drag an arrow from your unit to where you want it to move and moves automatically.
