Description of Ironseed

A great but sorely underrated space strategy game, Iron Seed recalls the venerable classic Starflight series in its breadth and scope, but is more focused on the strategic and tactical issues than that classic.

Numerous planets and options guarantee almost infinite replayability, and numerous ship designs and crew selection allow for different playing style. A highly recommended game that is precursor to SimTex' Master of Orion in spirit if not in name.

This is one of the best games ever made. So sad its mostly forgotten!

There is a patch that someone made. It works marvelously... basically unpack into the same directory your game is in.

This is actually a gem of a game especially once the patch makes it run more expediently.

This was like a serious, transhuman take on Starflight / Star Control. The game is almost impossible to finish without a walkthrough.
