Long shot... Empire Mission

Hi all,

just found this great site, its so cool to catch up on the old amiga games.

I have been going through all my old games and ticking off ones that i simply could not finish... like Speedball 2 today! finally beat super nashwan

anyways... here is the longest shot for an old amiga game...
  • possibly an indian coder
  • written in amiga basic
  • pretty sure it was called empire mission
  • may have been on a compilation disk with monopoly basic
basically you start with a few cruisers, you can travel around by clicking on stars that were about the size of a pixel on the star map. you bought a persuadertron so you could get extra space cruisers on most stars you visit, you bought and sold materials to make credits and you could buy a mothership. eventually you ran into the empire fleet and would have a huge battle. fight scenes were simply the computer counting down fleet points you had until one side was out.

ah the golden days, i spent alot of time to trying to figure the code and it was my first hacking experience!

would love to get my hands on this

thanks

Isn't this game simply called Empire? I've not played it, but I have it somewhere, and your description sounds familiar.

Darn - I honestly thought it was a space game. Sorry.

If the OP had spelled the "B... Headlam" thing correctly, I would have found it earlier!

Try to look on this games disk of B. H. - could indeed be on there:
