The Colony reviews

Computer Gaming World - Issue 56 (1989): "In The Colony, players take on the role of Regional Marshal for a given sector. As the marshal, you find yourself responding to a mayday signal from a scientific research colony. You have a near-miss with a black hole and crash-land on the planet. Therefore, the game begins when you regain consciousness. You have to: 1) rescue survivors, if any; 2) repair your damaged ship; 3) use whatever force is required (it'll take quite a bit) to destroy an unknown alien race on the verge of invasion. As Marshals from a more primitive era might say "It's all in a day's work, Ma'am"."
