Description of Dominium

Dominium is one of the early real-time strategy game that focus on planet conquest and resource management - as they have become so common nowadays.

Overall fairly poor and far inferior to similar games such as Dune 2. Although the game plays from an attractive isometric viewpoint with many structures to build and resources to gather, it quickly degenerates into a game of "build as many units as possible to overwhelm the enemy." There is not nearly enough variety in the game to accommodate strategies other than outright military aggression, and diplomacy and economic models are severely flawed.

All in all, a worthy attempt by Microids in the (back then) niche genre, but everyone is well advised to stick to Dune 2 and 4X classics for their galactic conquest fix.

From the looks of it I'd say it does have similarities to Warcraft and AOE although in a more simplistic kinda way. I'd say is pretty advanced considering it's ONLY 383 kilobytes on Dos. I understand that the reviewers must consider features when it comes to games and programs offered on this page, but one feature I haven't seen being considered by neither the reviewers or the public making the comments here is the features of programming vs. program SIZE. I think Microids did a better job than most, at least most of the developers I've seen so far, in packing as much as possible in an elegant way as possible the many features and options I see in the game according to the images present. I would request for those offering these programs as well as those of us players benefitting from this site, to take size into consideration when it comes to gaming, don't y'all think?
