Which, in my opinion, the interest is more historical than fiction, early space strategy. However, she has her admirers.
Usually games are waiting for either a gorgeous realistic graphics (and an idea of what it is, everyone, of course, his own), or a very detailed game, which allows you to forget about all external faults. But here, alas, neither one nor the other. The graphics in the game are generally rare, and when there is only black screen small sizes with dots on it representing stars. The rest is text Windows.
Yes, it is Windows. Even created the impression that the game is a "harbinger" of Windows, which at the time of creating the game in the usual form, of course, did not exist. Light gray window with a diffuse pale black color of the average number of text – that is before our eyes for most of the playing time. And don't think text-based games you'll be at least a minimum of friendliness.
The very same gameplay is similar to Master of Orion (which did not then exist) – we we colonize planets and create our own space Empire. Perhaps in this game there's a hidden highlight, but I, unfortunately, could not be traced. Maybe someone will be more lucky.
Now, play Imperium online for free on your browser and make your boring weekend fun and full of entertainment.
