Imperialism is a strategy game in which your managerial ability will be checked. All the happening in the game is directly proportional to your skill to manage the things. The Game is based on the imperialistic expansion in the 18th and 19th century. In this game, conquest is not based only on military power. In this game victory also depends on the other methods like your management skill for the different economic conditions. Underdeveloped countries may be exploited to expand your country by means of the military, political and economic means. In the game, you will play the role of a major world power and the rest of the country will give you promise to help you in defeating your enemies. Your only goal in the game is to expand your influence as far as possible and use the resources present there to dominate in terms of power. All your friend country will help you in achieving your goal.
In Imperialism whole game plot is designed on the world map where you have to make a strategy to develop and explore your empire. In the game you will be provided cotton farms, cattle herds and farms produce different resources which will be turned into food to make happy your workers. You also have different minerals, which will be used to produce steel. You have to be strong financially and politically in the game to rule the world.
War with smaller countries is not so tough because generally, they don’t use the defensive technique more. Transportation of the military or worker is easy. Graphic designing and sound effect is impressive and makes you enjoy the game. Controls are also very easy and comfortable to handle.

Review by genghiskhan777

A complex strategy sim about the 19th century in Europe. The game is in-depth and contains many realistic aspects of empire building. The biggest flaw in my opinion is that the game can be won by a vote. One of my favorite games of all time.

10/14/2014 2:40:00 PM - Robin Patterson I downloaded this from here and have run it on my Windows Vista laptop in Windows 95 mode for several years. Crashes are rare. The zoom/ship crash can usually be avoided if all of your ships have moved in the turn by the time you hit Zoom. Zoom is not essential to play. Please check out the wiki:

4/5/2013 9:18:00 PM - John Just downloaded game. Everything worked perfectly up to the newspaper at the start of the game. When I tried to proceed to the game, Windows said that Data Execution Prevention had to close the program. Is there a DEP compatible version? After Removing the file from DEP protection the same thing occurs. I am on Windows Vista. Any ideas? Also, is there any way to play it above minimum resolution?

1/19/2012 2:27:00 PM - Robin Patterson I got it working. Looked at the tutorial game and found that it needs instructions from a Manual. Does anyone have the Manual? <br /> Looks good enough to try, anyway, especially with the above review by genghiskhan777. I've given it a wiki page -
1/18/2012 5:25:00 AM - Robin Patterson When I clicked the Download button I saw this: The package you're about to download is zipped and contains only game files. To play the game you have to set up an emulator (like DOSBOX) or have MS-DOS operating system. To play the game on Windows, please choose option 'Play Now' - our game client will run the game for you There is no "Play now" in sight. But I have your emulator working OK for other games. Please explain how the above message relates to the 11/1/2011 explanation and what I should do.
11/1/2011 9:28:00 AM - FreeGameEmpire This is a Windows game (marked with a windows icon in the description above). Windows games cannot be run in a DOS emulator, you can just download them and run on your own.
11/1/2011 2:32:00 AM - FreeGameEmpireFan Is FGE planning on supporting "Play Now" for this in the future?
10/28/2011 8:33:00 AM - ghostface it has no play now button!!!!
