Abandonware DOS title


Colonization is a turn based strategy 4x game. The setting is the European Colonization of the New World. Colonization gameplay and interface are similar to Civilization, another Sid Meier game. However, there are some differences between Civilization and Colonization: playable nations (European powers), resources and commodities, declaration of independence, etc.

    As long as you are aware that this game has nothing to do with the actual history (slavery...), this is the best "civilization" game of all time. it's even better than its civ4-based remake, the wagon train/ship trade system is massively powerful, and you can move your pops to different cities. therefore, specialized cities are king in this game, to a much larger extent than in any civilzation out there.
