FreeCol - Colonization Of America Strategy Game


FreeCol - Colonization of America strategy game and similar to Civilization.

The original Colonization was released in 1994 by Microprose.

Colonization is heavily based on Civilization, which is generally considered to be the best turn-based strategy game for the PC.

The objective of the game is to colonize the New World.

You start the game in 1492 with a vessel and some colonists.

The goal is to build many colonies (with the help of Europe), so that you can live off the land after a while.

Once the majority of the people are behind you, you can declare your independence, which will make the king send over his forces from Europe, to try and gain control over your colonies.

If you survive the attack you’ve won the game.

FreeCol - Colonization of America strategy game.

Development of FreeCol:

"This clone will be developed incrementally and result in FreeCol 1.0.0 which will be an almost exact Colonization clone. Incremental development basically means that we'll add features one at a time. This allows us to have a running program at all times and also to release an unfinished but working game once in a while."

"Once FreeCol 1.0.0 is finished we'll start working towards FreeCol 2.0.0. FreeCol 2 will go beyond the original Colonization and will have many new features, it will be an implementation of our (and our users') image of what Colonization 2 would have been."
