- Supremacy -

Supremacy is a strategy game in which you must defeat four different foes on their own planetary system. Each of these systems contains 8,16 or 32 planets which you can colonize/conquer.
You always start off at the opposite end as your opponent with only your starbase from which you must mount an offensive againt him and keep your own people happy so they will keep supplying money.
The population can easily grow if you reduce the taxes but you will have to supply them with enough food so they wo'nt starve. To grow food you can buy a food-processingplant from the shop, or as the manual says from your homeworld through an interdimensional portal. There's others things you need from the shop as well, solar sattelites to supply energy, miningplants to produce oil and minerals and ship to carry troops and cargo.

On the easiest levels you won't need too many of them because you only need money to buy equipment but later on you'll also require energy and minerals to purchase equipment. On level three and four you'll need to completely balance your resources because it's very easy to run out of one and you will not be able to get more equipment. Fortunately you won't have to get all the resources from your homeplanet but instead you can terraformat a planet and colonize it. To terraform a planet you simply send your terraformer there and it will inform you after it has finished. Each planet can be of several different type, forest, metropolis, desert, valanic and the very rare starbase type. Each of these types is best at producing one specific item. Forest planets produce the most food, metropolis planets are the best source of money, deserts are good for energy and vulcanic planets are best for fuel/minerals. The starbase type planet offers the best overall but they are quite rare to get.

Meanwhile you shouln't forget that you are in hostile territory so it's important to train troops as soon as you can, you can ignore the warnings from your oppenent. Training troops is a simple matter of transferring citizens from your homebase to military training where you can let them train until you buy them equipment and put them in service. There are plenty of different weapons and armor to choose from but your best bet is to pay for the best because you have a limited number of maximum troops. You can have 24 platoons of 200 men each and outfitting them with the best equipment will cost you 109.000 credits.

All this juggling of activities is done through simple icons most of which can be accessed from every screen but you can always return to the main screen by clicking the right mouse button.
Many screens like the planet control screen contain lots of text and some extra buttons te keep track of all your planets and ships. There are also some options which are only available from the main screen like saving and spying on enemy planets.
Figuring out the controls aren't that difficult but it will take a while before you know where all the items you want to use are precisely located.

Even though the game can become quite a chore because you have to keep track of so many things at once overall it's quite fun to do. There are some annoying things like having a maximum of 32 ships and vessels which basicly limits the number of planets you can effictly use. Also each opponent you face is pretty much the same except for the extra resources needed to pay for equipment.
Random events in the game aren't really random either, the events happen in the same order each time you play a game and they always have the same results.
Despite these minor flaws there is enough to keep you hooked until you defeat the final badguy Rorn.


Overal rating: 8/10
