Strategic Conquest is a classic two-player turn-based strategy game for the Apple Macintosh, based on Empire. It was originally published by PBI Software and later by Delta Tao Software. Strategic Conquest allows the player to control modern warfare units. It can be played either by two humans, or with a computer opponent. It also has the capability to be played over an AppleTalk network. The player's objective in Strategic Conquest is to conquer the world. The world is divided into a rectangular grid made up of randomly-placed islands. Islands contain Cities, which are central to game play. Cities can belong to either player, or they can be neutral (neither side has conquered them or side that has already conquered the city has been removed by bombing). Cities are used for the production of units, which are produced at regular intervals. Victory is achieved when all enemy cities have been conquered or when the human or computer opponent surrenders. The computer opponent surrenders when the human player has a large advantage.

The internal download is version 1.0 by PBI Software. It could not be made to run on any permutation of Mini vMac, but is usable on authentic hardware all the way up to OS 9. The title screen (which is stored in the MacPaint document) causes graphical artifacts in color depths other than black and white, but these don't interfere with gameplay.

2nd DL is the demo (v1.0) that can be played with Mini vMac (DC42 image compressed with StuffIt 1.5).

Version 4.0 is still listed for sale by Delta Tao, but the download URL provided at purchase is reportedly outdated. If you get a dead link, try replacing the part of the address with:

I've got version 3. I posted it on here but they took down the download and replaced it with a link to buy version 4. Give me your email and I'll send you the disk image. Works on Mini vMac in black and white and supposedly Basilisk in color.

I've got the disk for version 2 and 3 but my disk for v.3 is unreadable. Version 4 is what they currently sell on their website but it pales in comparison to v.3. If anyone has v.3, I'll give you free hamburger for a copy!
