Conquest 4000 an old game I made in 1995 based on TradeWars 2002

Conquest 4000, a TradeWars 2002 inspired game, but with graphics. Navigate and explore the 1,000 sectors, collect Energy, Water, Fuel Ore, pick Colonists and engage in epic battles. Sell your cargos at the Space Station to upgrade or buy a new ship.

25 years ago, I was working on a game called Conquest 4000, today you can play online for free at https://archive.org/details/conquest-4000

NavCon (Navigation console)

When you embark on your journey, use the mouse to move your ship, shoot and access your NavCon.

Right-click to access your NavCon. To warp to a different sector, click on a number at top left. Sector #1 is where the Space Station is located. To dock with the Space Station, click DOCK in our NavCon CI (Command Interface). After that, in the Space Station, you can buy stuff, see ship’s specifications, upgrade ships and weapons. Right-click again to exit the NavCon.

Each sector has its own particularity. For instance, if you see a planet, try to attack it! With the long-range sensor scan (F5), it’s easier to choose your next sector to explore. Some sectors are protected by Space Patrol; be careful, as they are well armed and shielded. You may also encounter an asteroid field, do not get hit by one or you will end up in your Escape Pod in no time.

You must watch out for Space Pirates, they can jam your NavCon and the only way out is by defending yourself to the death or surrendering. Turning the Cloaking device on is a good way to survive an attack.

Are you cornered by the Space Pirates or the Space Patrol? You can launch a Mine (F3) to wipe them all, but do not use it too much as it destroys everything including the transporter, so you won’t be able to collect Energy, Water or Fuel Ore.
