Anacreon: Reconstruction 4021

#1 Post by Mana Trance » Sat Sep 26, 2009 10:31 pm

This old 4X game was released in 1987. I have fond memories of playing against my dad using the hot-seat multiplayer mode. It was a great deal of fun for its time.

It's very obviously dated these days, and while a graphical update was made (Anacreon 2.0), it's no longer the pinnacle of awesome that I thought it was when I first found it.

Here's a link to the game's website:

I think one of the best features it has is the very fast and simple combat, something that may be of use for freeorion. Thoughts?
