Conflict is a political/strategy simulator, inspired by a prediction of how events in the Middle East could unfold in the 1990s. In this 1997, the Israeli prime minister dies (either by assassination or by bomb blast), and you're appointed as the new prime minister.

In the game you have to make and follow political policies regarding other countries in the Middle East, control intelligence and purchase arms, try to beat the other countries in the nuclear race and keep peace with the Palestinians and, of course, conduct battles with other countries.

Cover art

The cover art of the European version was painted by renowned comic artist Simon Bisley.


Virgin Mastertronic manager Andrew Wright later came to regret releasing this as a straight-to-budget title, as it became one of his favorites, and he decided it could've been a success if released at full-price and marketed correctly.

Yitshaq Rabin

Ironically, this game semi-predicts Israeli prime minister Yitshaq Rabin's untimely demise, as he was assassinated in November 4th, 1995.
