Cosmic Supremacy Review

Rating: 10Posted on 2012-08-13 04:17:08 by Deleted User

Cosmic Supremacy is an awesome game, I have been playing it for quite some time now.

What it is: This is a turn-based, 4x style (explore, expand, exploit, exterminate) space based strategy game. You download the client which is what the game is played in, allowing more features than if it was played in a browser. To accurately describe the game play, I would say it is a mix between; a real time strategy such as starcraft, and that of a persistent civilization building type game such as evony or sid meier's civilization. There are many things which set Cosmic Supremacy apart from these, however.

First off, the game is free. It was developed by a game creator that was looking to make the best game in its class and to stimulate an online community which plays it. It was NOT designed to generate income. The game is supported by donations which are completely voluntary. There are no pay elements at all such as what other 'free' games have.

This game is multiplayer, pitting you against others online. The way it works: Various different game matches, each one called a 'galaxy' is created and posted on the game's website. The start date and time is given for these and a sign up period is given. Depending on your skill and ranking you have access to different galaxies which can have very different characteristics. A galaxy could be a 'speed' galaxy, played over a manner of hours, a normal galaxy lasting 3-6 weeks, or an even longer one lasting months. This all depends on the galaxy's turn length.

You start out with a planet and a few colonization ships. You then go to work building your planets up, colonizing more planets, researching technologies, building custom ships you design and build in factories on your planets and ultimately go to war with against other players in the same galaxy. You will fight your enemy to take control of his planets, while defending your own. You will engage in ship vs. ship battles with fleets of hundreds of custom ships, whose attributes are designed by the players that built them.

A beginner to the game has access to an excellent wiki site which explains all of the game's mechanics in fully disclosed terms, no having to backwards engineer things in game trying to figure it out like other games, it is all on that site and easy to understand. Also, the community has a very active forum with helpful members willing to help you learn how to play. Also, you can try the game out in a single player version which you can use to perfect your starting skills at playing.

At last I must mention the two most amazing aspects of this game that I have not seen in any others: Governors and Admirals. A Governor is a set of rules you can write, as simple or as involved as you wish, for how you want your planets to behave. This not only eliminates most of the micromanagement games of this nature demand from the player, BUT ALSO it allows you to log off, have a life outside of the game and still do extremely well and continue to gain power in game! For instance, I have written a very nice one which controls all my planets activities, such as every single building to build from colonization or conquering a fresh planet, how to distribute my workforce and it does all of these things while being sensitive to the planet's strengths and weakness. For instance, if the planet is one whose attributes favor manufacturing, it will build more factories, or if it is a good researching planet, it will build along those lines.

Admirals are the same idea, except they are for controlling your ships. You can actually write a fairly simple admiral which you can tell it exactly how to attack enemy planets, and have your conquering take place when you aren't even online! You can also write them to defend your planets, etc.

All in all, I rate this game VERY HIGHLY. I have been looking for a very challenging game to play in my spare time, yet still have a life outside of the game and that I don't have to log in every hour of every day to manage.

Give it a try, you have NOTHING to lose! Tell them SuPeR NooB sent ya!
