The Deluxe versions of the early to mid 1990s were a strange trend. Essentially, those games were remakes with very light extensions of the originals' gameplay. Deluxe M.U.L.E. never made it to completion, but among others, Railroad Tycoon, Pirates! and Warlords II got such a treatement. And, of course, Empire. For this game, it was hardly the first remake. Best known for the 1987 version subtitled Wargame of the Century, its history actually reaches back to the mainframes of the 70s, obviously fully character based at the time, before being ported to the then current home computers of the 80s, with a graphical facelift in order to enable commercial exploitation of the by then fully matured game.

Empire Deluxe was released in the early 90s as a rewrite of the earlier Empire: Wargame of the Century game. Even though the game is pretty basic compared to many other strategy games of the day, it still won a lot of hearts during its release. So much so that Empire Deluxe is still sold commercially online! Back in the very early 90s, this was one of the few strategy games that sucked my time away. Let’s take a look at this classic…

Excelent game,will run on most any pc.
The windows version does need some work but over all I would say that both the DOS and Windows versions are great for an afternoon of gaming.
I just wish that they had added some cut sceens or animation to the windows version.
Two thumbs up for EMPIRE DLX.

Empire inspired a whole generation of programmers to do similar games. The concept is simple, yet addicting: Start with one city, build up an army and conquer the whole (unknown) world. That's it. Plain and simple. Maybe you've had this many times before, but certainly not often that well done!
