I used to play a game, many years ago, it was one you could play on windows in windowed mode. Basically on the screen was a map of space (black with pixel stars), and planets. Your job was to go around colonising planets with people, mining them for resources, attacking rival space ships or planets, buying weapons and missles etc. Plus you could play this over a modem. I do have a vague memory of the evil rival ship having a evil smiley face on it's ship. If anyone remembers a game like this please let me know ^^

Default War Path

So in the late nineties, my friend found a free PC game that was a strategy game in space. 4x game possibly. All I remember is that you had a small, triangular looking ship with halfway decent graphis, you could mine or harvest planets for resources and when you added to the defense of a planet it would add a blue shield. If you added more to the shields you would see more blue halos that would rotate around the planet rather quickly. Ofcourse you needed to take over the galaxy and defeat the other AI ships.

At the start of the game, I remember looking at a randomly generated map with planets as quickly as possible to stay away from the AI but also start mining for materials.

Its not a very popular name and I dont beleive its on this site though many games are quite close.

Does anyone have a clue or a link that has some old PC space games that I could look through? I have searched for many hours to no avail. Any help would be great, feel free to ask questions, it could help me to remember more details.

Thanks for the list but its not in there. I do remember that it was made before 1997 for sure. Possibly early 90s.

Took me a long while to find a site with it since another game in '97 stole its name... But maybe it's War Path.

Glad to see you have found it, Bingo for Eagle!
The game seems freeware, isn't it?
