The War Game of the (last) Century
This is a Mac port of the original and ancient EMPIRE. Those of you who are more than 40 years old may remember this mother of all strategy games. Please refer to the detailed description on playing instructions ( „Empire.pdf“ ).
And also, please don’t blame the quite poor graphics on me; I just ported the original version and added only a few Mac specific extensions.
This version of EMPIRE requires system version Mac OS X 10.11.
Special credit goes to the author of the original game, Walter Bright: https://classicempire.com
