Moo1

I figured, for six bucks, what could go wrong?

I lost an entire day playing and got my clock cleaned on normal difficulty every other game. Starting position is everything.

I also got MoM for the same price.

Do you need an emulator or works on Seven?

I downloaded it from GoG, it came with/ran immediately in DosBox just fine for me in Seven. I didn't have to fiddle with anything.

If I minimized to look at the manual or ship ID/copy protection card it wouldn't go back to fullscreen, so I printed out a couple of tables from the manual and the ID card to avoid having to save, quit, and relaunch. Then it proceeded to eat my day.

I have Moo1 installed on wokPC under XP
runs in cmd dos box full screen only, restores to full screen when I have to switch to work now and then

I use it to fill in the time when I have to wait the work applications which spend half their time in hourglass...


I only play in impossible - huge - five with Psilons
since I know I can beat it, and ust it as a fun pastime, I DO save and reload very often
no need to test my skill, just enjoy kicking ass easily as compensation when i'd want to bonk some colleague head instead

The AI has an odd habit of attacking me without declaring war in some games. I even had a non-aggression pact with the silicoids, they still attacked, and the treaty remained in effect with no declaration. They erased Meklon with death spores, and I still couldn't get anyone to ally with me against them. Very odd, or very clever. As a reward, I erased them last.

Odd game, missile tech came easy, but the first bomb I was able to get was neutronium.

Unlike Moo2, small ships actually have their uses.

I already bought MOM twice, I don't intend to buy it again!

Why can't someone make a real improvement to it?

(I guess AoW:ShadowMagic was close)

I never paid for MoM, I grabbed it off of underdogs a few years ago. Pretty great game, especially for something made last century. I played it on an old laptop a lot when we were on long trips.

I played AoW, but never got around to Shadow Magic. I got frustrated with the late campaign of the original game.

Moo 1 and 2 are both a lot of fun. Moo 1 seemed to do a lot of things better than 2 (I guess I like sliders). Weapons and combat seem a lot more balanced as opposed to the bigger is (nearly) always better I get in Moo2. Even though it seems like being able to pick specific research targets would be better for strategy, I have more fun with the randomness of research in Moo 1. Depending on what comes up, I have to adjust my gameplay, instead of starting each one with the same tried-and-true research plan. What a horrible looking sentence.
