PlanetCon

Play a turn based strategy game

PlanetCon is a simple turn based strategy game, of galactic conquest, similar to Konquest for Linux. It can be played by 1 to 9 players, against AI adversaries controlled by the computer, or against other people in the same device.

Players start with a planet that produces a number of ships each turn, and they can send fleets of ships in order to conquer other planets, with the final objective of conquering the whole galaxy, or to produce more ships than the opponents at the end of the last turn.

Most of the development was focused on getting an AI that can beat a human, enjoyable to play, no easily predictable, and able to run on low spec mobiles.

Features:

  • Turn based strategy game.
  • Generator of random galaxies.
  • Players and planets distributed uniformly.
  • Play against the computer, or against other people in the same device.
  • AI with 5 difficulty levels (with different hostility, but no cheating).
  • Optional rules with upkeep costs, planetary defense, or fog of war.
  • Instructions included (but not needed in order to learn to play).
  • Translated to English and Spanish.
