Armada 2526

Armada 2526 is a strategy game developed by Ntronium Games and published by Matrix Games and is set in an operatic scale where gamers guide their race from its first interstellar journeys, until it becomes a mighty galactic empire. Gamers are given the opportunity to explore the galaxy, conduct research, diplomacy and trade, found new colonies, maneuver mighty star fleets, and fight epic battles. The game features help and advisor support that helps gamers get up to speed quickly, and also a play system that provides games that can be finished in a reasonable time. It also emphasizes battle and strategy over economic micro-management. The game has an 10+ rating from ESRB.

Features

Armada 2526 features Turn-Based Strategy which shows the portion of the galaxy where the game takes place. It is here that gamers will maneuver their fleets, manage colonies, and grow their empire. The turn base strategy map emphasizes on thinking and planning, allowing gamers to spend as much time as they want planning their strategies, and issuing orders. It also features Epic Space Battles with more than a hundred ships on each side. These ships are presented to the player via real-time 3D rendering and introduce elements of tension and pressure; and emphasize tactics and maneuvering formations, instead of frantic clicking on individual ships. Other features in the game are Diplomacy where gamers can negotiate offensive and defensive alliance, non aggression pacts and trade agreements. They can also trade money, technology, colonies, ships and information; issue threats and ultimatums, or ask for favors. Gamers can establish friendships and alliances or have their reputation ruined by bullying and not honoring agreements; Technology that involves research and specialty in particular areas of tech, to provide themselves with radically different capabilities as they grow along the game. How they develop and balance the technology is also an important aspect of the game, and concentrating too much research and resources on one particular technology may either make their forces the strongest or the weakest when they come up against another foe with such abilities that can overcome their mastery; an artificial intelligence system with routines that have been created to provide players with challenges in-game and opponents that are fun to play against.
