Today's gem is one of the finest space strategy genes on the Amiga. By 'finest' I of course mean 'Where did November 1992 go?' I'm serious, this baby was responsible for many a homework assignment being handed in late. Okay, that happened anyway, but I digress... 

After you've built up an armed force that would make a Klingon weep with pride, you can go off and give that BAD MAN the learning he so deserves.

I first had this for the C64 after drooling over a review in Commodore Format beck in the summer of '91. Thanks to a rather generous birthday present and a trip to Smiths I got me a copy.  

So, here's what you had to do.... You start off choosing your adversary from a rather rum looking quartet. They range from a an enemy that has a pathological fear of kittens to some big scary bugger who keeps Daleks up at night crying for their mums.  As the difficulty of your foe increases, so does the number of worlds that stand between you.

 With your quarry selected, it's time to crack on. Whist you're oriented with is a rather overwhelming collection of options. Everything from shop building, colony control and the all important military training. As you get things moving, your enemy will start sending you messages of the 'Gerrof my planets' kind.  So, you build, you train, you tax the hell out of your planets and give the aforementioned planets stupid names. I tended to name them after the firemen from 'Trumpton' or kitchenware. I was very odd.

After you've built up an armed force that would make a Klingon weep with pride, you can go off and give that BAD MAN the learning he so deserves. Don't expect it to be easy though. I may have said the first guy was a bit wet, but only compared to what awaits you. So yeah, not an easy gene.  

I will admit I preferred the C64 version for the rather superficial reason of the title music, excellently done by Jeroen 'The Man' Tel. In fact, here it is.
