Anacreon: Reconstruction 4021
DOS - 1987
Description of Anacreon: Reconstruction 4021
Anacreon: Reconstruction is, without a doubt, one of --if not THE-- best strategy games ever made. It was released in the 1988 and bombed, mostly due to its high price and ASCII graphics.
It is a 1 to 8 player game in which you build and manage an intergalatic empire. You can build armies, starbases, turn entire planets into chemical plants or shipyards, terrorize and mine trade routes, build stargates, launch long-range cruise missles, decide whether a planet should be isolated or requiring constant supplies from outside (if you should addict your loyal subjects to labor-improving drugs), and much, much more.
To say the least, its NOT a simple game. But it is excellent and very fun to play, especially with friends. Definitely Top Dog material, and a must-have for all armchair commanders. Best of all, the author George Morimisato has released the latest and best version (1.3) as freeware, and even converted the entire manual to HTML format. Thanks, George!

I play the new one that you can find at neurohack.com
I am still mastering the basics. I really can't think of a better strategy game, I don't know why it isn't more popular?

Anacreon source code was released by the creator many years ago. Several newer versions were released, but further development seems to have stalled.

This is a really deep strategy game about building your own galactic empire. It has war, diplomacy, empire building, economics, and more. Just be aware that it is a pure text game with tons of statistics. If you're into spreadsheet games, this is one you'll enjoy.
