Seven Kingdoms, designed by Trevor Chan, brings a unique blend of Real-Time Strategy with the addition of trade, diplomacy, and espionage.

The game enables players to compete against up to six other kingdoms allowing players to conquer opponents by defeating them in war (with troops or machines), capturing their buildings with spies, or offering opponents money for their kingdom.

In 2009, Enlight Software released the game under the GPL license. 7kfans project is updating the game and provides a community for fans. A free Seven Kingdoms will help continue the legacy.

Unlike most RTS, you are not controlling units, but focus on high-level strategic planning: Building infrastructure, securing resources, and moving your armies. The core game mechanics turns out to be quite close to WWI-WWII type of warfare, however, there is no explicit reference to any historical period.

UNIX rewrite of the MS-DOS program of the same name, which in turn was inspired by John E. Dell's "Drug Wars" game. You have one month to buy and sell drugs on the streets of New York, the aim being first to pay off your debt to the loan shark and then to make a fortune. And if you have to shoot a few cops in the process, well... The game includes TCP networking allowing you to meet (and shoot) other human drug dealers.

Empire is a console game simulation of a full-scale war between two emperors, the computer and you. Naturally, there is only room for one, so the object of the game is to destroy the other.

The world on which the game takes place is a square rectangle containing cities, land and water. Cities are used to build armies, planes, and ships which can move across the world destroying enemy pieces, exploring, and capturing more cities.

The classic game from the 1980s uses text mode graphical output, drawing your units, cities and the world in color. Commands are issued using the keyboard.

Globulation 2 is an ongoing, multi-platform project to create innovative high-quality RTS gameplay, minimizing micro-management and assigning tasks to the units automatically. You just have to order the number of units you want for a selected task and the units will do their best to satisfy your requirements.

Glob2 can be played by a single player, through your Local Area Network, or over the Internet, thanks to the Ysagoon Online Gaming meta-server. It also features a scripting language for versatile gameplay and an integrated map editor.

Each player controls a team of several hedgehogs. During the course of the game, players take turns with one of their hedgehogs. They then use whatever tools and weapons are available to attack and kill the opponents' hedgehogs, thereby winning the game. Hedgehogs may move around the terrain in a variety of ways, normally by walking and jumping but also by using particular tools such as the "Rope" or "Parachute", to move to otherwise inaccessible areas. Each turn is time-limited to ensure that players do not hold up the game with excessive thinking or moving.

A large variety of tools and weapons are available for players during the game: Grenade, Cluster Bomb, Bazooka, UFO, Homing Bee, Shotgun, Desert Eagle, Fire Punch, Baseball Bat, Dynamite, Mine, Rope, Pneumatic pick, Parachute. Most weapons, when used, cause explosions that deform the terrain, removing circular chunks. The landscape is an island floating on a body of water, or a restricted cave with water at the bottom. A hedgehog dies when it enters the water (either by falling off the island, or through a hole in the bottom of it), it is thrown off either side of the arena or when its health is reduced, typically from contact with explosions, to zero (the damage dealt to the attacked hedgehog or hedgehogs after a player's or CPU turn is shown only when all movement on the battlefield has ceased).

LGeneral is a turn-based strategy game heavily inspired by Panzer General. You play single scenarios or whole campaigns turn by turn against a human player or the AI.

Entrenchment, rugged defense, defensive fire, surprise contacts, surrender, unit supply, weather influence, reinforcements and other implementations contribute to the tactical and strategic depth of the game.

This is the game engine only. LGeneral requires lgeneral-data or lgc-pg, which converts the game data of the original Panzer General game, to function properly.

Liquid War is an original multiplayer wargame. There are no weapons, the only thing you have to do is to move a cursor in a 2-D battlefield. This cursor is followed by your army, which is composed by a great many little fighters, represented by small colored squares. When fighters from different teams meet, they eat each other, it is as simple as that.

A single player mode is available, but the game is definitely designed to be multiplayer, and has network support.

netPanzer is an isometric view real-time tactical game designed for play across the Internet and over LAN systems. One on one games are possible via direct connect or modem.

netPanzer is designed for FAST ACTION combat -- it is not another resource management clone. In fact, there aren't any resources at all. Each player will have many units of different types at their disposal. Players can fight until their units are destroyed -- then respawn and keep on going.

The game is real-time, but it's based on quick tactical action and unit management. Battles progress quickly and constantly; in fact, they never let up. There is no stop in the action because there is no waiting for resources to be collected and converted into weaponry. Players can join or leave multiplayer games at any time.

You are an AI. Your goal is to acquire the necessary knowledge to become the singularity. You do this by building and taking over computers, whose processing power you can use for research, and by using robots, which allow you to manipulate the outside world. At the same time, you must elude the notice of humankind, who will destroy you if they find out about your existence.

Slingshot is a two dimensional, turn based simulation-strategy game set in the gravity fields of several planets. It is a highly addictive game, and never the same from round to round due to its randomly generated playing fields.

It is a deceptively simple game, the goal is to shoot the other spacecraft through the field of planets, but their gravity makes it tricky. The effects of the gravity mean that although it is easy to learn how to play, and to enjoy playing, it could take a lifetime to thoroughly master.

UFO: Alien Invasion is a squad-based tactical strategy game in the tradition of the old X-COM PC games. It combines military realism with hard science-fiction and the weirdness of an alien invasion. The carefully constructed turn-based system gives you pin-point control of your squad while maintaining a sense of pace and danger.

UFO:AI has two main modes of play: Geoscape mode and Tactical mode.

In Geoscape mode you manage the activities and finances of PHALANX, a secret organisation charged with defending Earth from a brutal alien enemy. You control bases, installations, aircraft and squads of armed-response troops. You will research new technologies and use their results in battle against the aliens. You can build, buy and produce anything you like, as long as your technology level and your budget will allow it. Easy-to-use time buttons make it possible to control the passage of time.

In Tactical mode the game is about taking command of your team in various missions to combat the aliens wherever they might appear. Tactical mode uses a turn-based system, where your team and the aliens take turns to make moves. You can order your troops around, fire their weapons, throw grenades and use other equipment. All actions require Time Units to perform. Once a soldier is out of Time Units, he or she can't do anything more until the next turn. Your mission objectives will vary for each mission and there are many to perform as the aliens' terrifying plot unfolds. You'll have to watch your back, be quick on your feet and take the fight to them.

If you don't, humanity is doomed.

zec is a client for Empire (http://www.wolfpackempire.com/), a real time, multiplayer, internet-based game, featuring military, diplomatic, and economic goals.

Currently there are two incarnations of zec: zec, and zecsh.

zec itself is a traditional script in the style of pei. While it is not as full-featured as pei, it does have the advantage of ZLE support.

zecsh is an experimental script, intended to be sourced from a running shell instance, in order to give the user the ability to intersperse normal shell constructs with Empire commands.

At this time, zecsh is considerably less stable than zec.

This is a client for the multi-player game of Netrek.

Netrek is probably the first video game which can accurately be described as a "sport". It has more in common with basketball than with arcade games or Quake. Its vast and expanding array of tactics and strategies allows for many different play styles; the best players are the ones who think fastest, not necessarily the ones who twitch most effectively. It can be enjoyed as a twitch game, since the dogfighting system is extremely robust, but the things that really set Netrek apart from other video games are the team and strategic aspects. Team play is dynamic and varied, with roles constantly changing as the game state changes. Strategic play is explored in organized league games; after 6+ years of league play, strategies are still being invented and refined.

The game was created in 1988, and still has players, including some people who have been playing for nearly as long as the game has existed.
