Conflict review

ACE Magazine: "The CGA version is... well... monochrome really. If you've got EGA you are treated to a bit of color in the maps. To be honest though, it doesn't make a hello of a lot of difference either way. If you have a mouse installed you can use it to select the menu options, but the cursor keys are quick enough. Not the most excting game of 1989, but very absorbing - and at this price yo can't go wrong!"

Zero Magazine Issue 06 (1990): "The game takes the form of various turns, during which you can alter relations with any of your neighbouring countries by making nice conciliatory noises, funding insurrection, building up your armies, or just reading the papers. Once your turn is completed, the computer takes the turns for the other players and reports on their actions. Those of you who've ever played the old 8-Bit classic Football Manager will have some idea of what Conflict is like. I suspect that it didn't need any revolutionary programming techniques, but for such a straightforward and simple idea it works surprisingly well. For those of you sat counting the paperclips during your lunch hour while the PC sits idle on the desk, this one is a must. Come to think of it, for anyone with a PC it's a must."

    This is a fun game to pick up a play. It's all turn based so it can be in the background while you do mundane tasks if you like. It's can also be fairly fast in that you don't have to sink hours of time to have fun. The dialog is entertaining and the actions are fun. However sometimes random events happen at the same time and you're basically toast.

    In some ways it's almost as much puzzle as it is strategy.
