Summary

Good multiplayer game but not much fun against computer

The Good

You can play with lots of other people in a group together. Simple to pick up but can be tactical to play with other players.

The Bad

Single player game is quite boring with little to do except send forces to different planets. Confusing method to input commands, Was put in place so other players can't see everything you input, but little point in single player game, and unsure whether your commands have registered or not. No challenge as the computer only defends & all you do is send ships to take planets. Game continues until you complete the years you put in the beginning, regardless of whether you finished or not.

The Bottom Line

This is a quite simplified space simulation where your goal is to take over the planets of a galaxy in a set time. Little to do, with little challenge, as you just keep sending ships to take over planet. If defences on planet you go to battle screen where you and the defender take turns destroying each ship, until one side has lost their ships. Can go on for ages if there are lots of ship involved. Multiplayer is far better & can be fun playing together, otherwise one for the history books. There is also a later DOS remake around 1989, which seems to be a close copy of this game, but unfortunately no better.
