Tycoon Games Releases Supernova 2: Spacewar
May 23, 2008
Supernova 2: Spacewar is a space wargame combined with a resource macro management simulation from Tycoon Games
Riva Celso, programmer/designer of Tycoon Games stated “After the first title, I wanted to shift genre completely, making a turn-based space wargame, integrated with a resource macro management part. I wanted to keep the management part simple, with global variables affecting your whole empire rather than managing every single planet. It is my first game for the Tycoon Games website, which will feature exclusively strategy, simulation and war games”.
Supernova 2 is available for Pc and Mac platforms, and has a very simple interface, but lots of gameplay elements: you have to manage your empire resources, then research new technologies like new weapons, armors, shields or mysterious devices to build a powerful fleet. Once you have assembled your army, target an enemy starsystem to conquer it, and see the wargame part in all its splendor. Many different ship classes, from small, fast scout ships to huge, slow, but devastating motherships: each one with its own statistics, plus the addition of unique ships for each faction, for a total of 25 different ones. Lots of different weapons both for short range fighting like beam cannons and bolts, or long range like missiles and torpedoes. The wargame simulation has lots of details, including different weapons ranges, ammo and recharge times, and the angle of fire which affects weapons damage and if used properly can turn the tide of the battle in your favor.
