Pax Galaxia is the comfortable path to strategy. RISK takes to the stars, but this time the armies move by themselves guided by your past orders. This is a truly unique and fascinating game of stellar conquest.
The user interface is nothing short of magic. You can command multiple stars with just a stroke of the mouse and then watch the armies move from star to star obeying your orders without questioning.
The user interface is so simple I'm worried you won't notice the unique strategic gameplay of Pax Galaxia. Cunning attacks and deceitful retreats, dramatic encirclements and desperate break-through rescue efforts are the highpoints of a wonderfully dynamic game.
The difficulty ranges from extremely easy to nearly impossibly difficult. While the easy modes are suitable for a fun couple of minutes trying to beat your time records, the more difficult ones will require all your concentration and the mastery of all the tricks of the game to overcome the computer players.
As far as the value of this title goes, your $20 will be well spent. There are more than thirty maps to choose from, and you can quickly make many more using the random map generator and the easy to use in-game editor. You can choose between four levels of difficulty and each map can be played multiple times with each of the opposing forces. You'll be entertained for months.
