A “turn-based strategy game set in space”, “for one to four players, where each player is a contender vying for supreme power over the galaxy.”
In brief testing, it seemed to frequently crash in System 7, but then worked without problem in System 6 (in Macintosh Plus emulation). A suggestion for beginners: besides setting Game Type to beginner in the “Game Setup” dialog, click the options button, and in the Species screen, greatly increase the Humanoid settings, perhaps even to 200%, to make learning the game more fun. I’m not convinced it is even possible to win in the default settings, but then, I’m just a beginner.
