Conquest of the New World puts you in control of a native civilization or an expeditionary force from one of five European countries. Compete against other players in the hopes of establishing control of the New World during the sixteenth century. Not a game that simulates the actual discovery and colonization of the Americas, Conquest of the New World is generated at the beginning of each game and each New World (and game) is therefore unique.
Your job is to explore the New World, establish thriving colonies, produce and trade goods and eliminate your enemies or defend your claims from your opponents. Each player sets his own objectives for each game. For some players, winning the game may primarily involve finding lots of new landmarks in the New World and establishing many colonies.
The Deluxe Edition adds several new features to the game. Primarily it adds the option to create and play scenarios and customize the world. In addition, nations now have different bonuses, several special resources and discoveries have been added and you can form trade alliances with other nations.

  • Interesting gameplay featuring exploration, management and combat
  • Infinite replayability on customizable, computer-generated worlds
  • Discovering the uncharted during the Age of Exploration era

Conquest of the New World reviews and comments

I didn't like the game itself, but tactical battles were awesome! There was an opportunity to create a quick battle from main menu and that was the only way I'd played this game and it was quite enjoyable.

It's a masterpiece. Yes, the graphics are miserable, but here it is not in the graphics, but in the gameplay, and for 1996, it is quite a norm. A Terrific idea of the game, Those who once played it on the Pentium-2, or the AMR 266 Mhz will appreciate. This game was the benchmark from which then began to make the rest of the game of this genre. In Any case, no one convince it to buy: Carefully watch the video-there all the gameplay (well almost all) is shown. And buy only if it suits You. By me-The game is bound to be in the collection of any self-respecting stepping strategist)

It'S an old game with outdated graphics, but that's all the negative I can say for this great game. If you can handle obsolete graphics, you're in luck, because you're going to enjoy a great strategy game. To Continuation I will enumerate his many virtues from my point of view clear is, that each one has his preferences. EcoNOMIa: It Has a mode of management similar to colonization, as the first objective, you will have to found your first colony in American lands, choosing a suitable land that contains several vital resources for the growth of this. Resource like wood, metal, food, goods and gold. With them you will also be able to commercial with other nations and colonies, and also with the Indians and with the motherland in Europe. You Can trade directly with them or set up trade routes with Europe. As you get resources and building buildings you go up your city level, getting more benefits both economic and infrastructure. Once You look strong enough both economically and militarily you can become independent and not have to pay taxes to your home country, that if they try to subjugate militarily so prepare for war. ARMY/BATTLES The difference of colonization and therefore civilization, here the army and its generals develop the battles on a tactical map. There Are Three types of terrestrial units: infantry, cavalry, artillery. That go from Level 1 to 6 if I remember correctly. The generals are very important because it depends on their abilities can handle more or less soldiers, in the field of Batallla, as well as have more attack movements and many more features. The Combat is very tactical and you have to be careful what units you carry and how you deploy them, as well as how many points of attack you have. You can attack cities, indigenous villages, you can also steal resources and gold making incursions or directly take cities and Quedartelas. There are Also naval units that can also be used for troop transport. That If the naval battles are developed the same as in the colonization, without tactical map. Other aspects: You Have diplomacy. You can play an individal or multiplayer campaign of up to 6 human players. IA is not silly and I will make it difficult to Heho always manages to go ahead technologically at least one of the 5 factions. I Could list more of the virtues of the game, but it would be long. A GREAT GAME THAT IF YOU GIVE IT A CHANCE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU INDIFFERENT.
