If you have ever been a fan of strategy based games similar to Colonization and Civilization then this is the perfect game for you.
FreeCol is a turn-based strategy game based on the old game Colonization, and similar to Civilization. The objective of the game is to create an independent nation. You start with only a few colonists defying the stormy seas in their search for new land. Guide them on the Colonization of a New World.
FreeCol oringially aimed to be an exact clone of Colonization. The visuals have been brought up to date with more recent standards but thay have remained clean, simple and functional. Certain new 'features' have been implemented but the gameplay and the rules will be exactly the same as the original game. Examples of modern features are an isometric map and multiplayer support.
FreeCol starts in the year 1492. With a few settlers, the player builds up colonies in the New World, struggling for power with other colonies from rival Europeans. The player gradually builds up these colonies with help from the European king until no help from Europe is necessary, meaning that the colonies can stand alone without any exterior aid, and declares independence from the King and, if the colonies are able to resist the attacks of the royal expeditionary force, victory is obtained.
The player may trade with Europe using various natural resources which are collected by cities or acquired from trade with natives. In each city the player can also build up industrial buildings to convert raw materials into processed goods, which sell for more in Europe, providing a significant economic advance. Some industrial buildings will convert materials into goods useful for running the colony, such as converting wood into Hammers and ore into tools.
