Deuteros - One of the best Amiga Space Strategy Games is now for your pc! ( REMAKE )

As we've now hit our personal milestone of 1000 views to our website ( THANKYOU EVERYONE ) it's time to share one of the greatest Space Strategy games ever created on the Amiga and the ST. The game is called DEUTEROS and is fully pc playable using an inbuilt emulator and a rather nice graphical filter.

Designed by Ian Bird and released in 1991. The game is set some 800 years after Millennium, in a time when mankind has won the struggle to make the Earth habitable again but lost its spacefaring capabilities, which it is seeking to regain. This is no ordinary space game and so far there has been no game like it since. In my youth of playing it which was purchased at a local market I spent an entire summer without hardly ever seeing daylight just playing it.  The object of the game is to mine resources, research new tech and to colonize further out into the solar system.

You can train new 3 categories of civilians : Producers, Researchers and Marines, out of a pool of 6000 population. The longer these teams are used, they are advanced in three levels, required for some later action (some inventions can be manufactured only by a producer who is at "Expert" level while Pilots with the rank of "Admiral" will be more effective in battles). Don't expect amazing graphics but do expect deep thoughtful gameplay with thousands of drones fighting away at each other as you battle to defend yourself against the Methanoids.  If you decide to give up it's rather satisfying hitting the Self Destruct button, the nuke button oh and you can even chill out with the Music Box which comes later. This is a game NOT to be missed
