Imperium Galactica II Description:
Imperium Galactica II - Alliances, is the sequel to the highly acclaimed Imperium Galactica. Drawing on the many of the successful elements of its predecessor, it takes the concept to a new level by seamlessly integrating different gaming styles into a unique and beautiful 3D interface.
In Imperium Galactica II, you play the leader of an empire. From your computer screen you can view your entire empire from a vantage point millions of miles away in space then seamlessly move into the heat of a battle and observe the actions of a small fighter ship only a few meters long. You can move through the atmospheres of worlds and explore their varying landscapes and weather conditions. You can construct colonies on these worlds and use them to produce materials to sustain your citizens and expand your empire. You can invent new designs and equip them to ships and tanks to create your own customized vehicles. You can engage in diplomacy with other races, trade with them, make war on them and even spy on them. You can receive messages and missions from other inhabitants of the galaxy and choose to act on them as you will.
You can play a simple game of universe domination, choosing one of the eight races, without following the game's story line. You can also play scenarios, where certain targets and objectives have to be met in a defined time period. Up to eight players can also compete (via the Internet or LAN) against each other for dominion of the universe!
