Andromeda Conquest is a 1982 strategy video game released for the Apple II, Atari 8-bit family, Commodore PET, MS-DOS, and TRS-80.[3] It is notable for its influence on the 4X game genre.[4]

Reception[edit]

Brian J. Murphy of Creative Computing praised Andromeda Conquest for its playability and multi-player mode but criticized the solitaire game, describing it as "dull".[5] Computer Gaming World's Floyd Mathews praised the game as "relatively simple, but exciting".[6] However, in 1992, in its retrospective survey of science fiction games, the magazine gave the title two of five stars.[7]
