Ashes of Empire

Does anyone remember this game?

I remember getting my first proper wage packet and going straight to the local independent games store (remember them) and buying Ashes of Empire

It came with a video tape (very rare for computer games), paper key tags and lovely glossy books. I bought the game, simple because of it's packaging and description, and what a brilliant strategy game

Has to be my all time favourite on the Amiga

I have memories of playing Midwinter http://hol.abime.net/2469

Check out more goodness from the great Mike Singleton:

I'll try "Ashes Of Empire". It looks engaging.

Maybe someone here then can answer something i've had in my memory for ages now. Didn't Mike Singleton also do a game called Maeltrom that was 3d polygons. It would have been on the pc but i always remembered it looked very smart at the time when they demoed an asteroid belt level

It wasn't the strategy game i saw however

Anyone here remember what i'm talking about and maybe has a link? i saw it on some tv program

Funny, I'm currently in the process of making my "Midwinter II" review and thought about its quasi-sequal "Ashes of Empire".

I never had it for my Amiga but I have a DOS version. I haven't played it in ages and I remember having more fun with Midwinter II. I should try it again...

There's a DOS version! I never knew that wonder if it would run in Dosbox

Strangely I've never played 'Midwinter', def one for the list

I've still got the VHS tape

I thought Ashes of empire was better than midwinter.

Are you thinking of Starlord? A very late release and not really finished. On a sad note, Mike Singleton passed away a few years ago. A big loss, his Lords of Midnight was one of my favourite Spectrum games.
