Powermonger is a real time strategy game where the player must defeat the opponents by conquering towns and tipping the balance of power in his/her favor. This is done by giving orders to soldiers and captains and by accumulating enough resources (food and equipment) to survive and ultimately win.

What they thought about it
"Bullfrog's next one on from Populous didn't have quite the same impact as its predecessor, but it remains a classic wargame and graphically impressive to boot. There is an option to connect computers together via a modem or direct cable so two human players can compete head-to-head. The game also supports a network allowing four-player competition. The amount of detail in the game is incredible - birds rustling feathers, voices of blacksmiths in their workshops and cheering." - PC Review Issue 7 (1992)
