Spaceward Ho! is a strategic game of awesome scope. You control the entire military and economy of a spacefaring race. Your goal: explore and colonize the galaxy.
Unfortunately, you are not alone. Alien enemies bent on galactic conquest will oppose your expansion. You fight them by developing new technologies and expanding your empire, or you can ally with them to turn enemies into friends.
Terraform newly discovered worlds or mine their natural resources. Maneuver your starship fleets, both in defense of your own systems and in offensive strikes against the evil aliens. Your strategic decisions will determine the fate of the galaxy.
Based on the original Mac/PC/Palm game and updated for iOS.

It shows what a long way that Apple has come in expanding its user base that this game is not topping the app store rankings: how could any one that played it on System 7 or before resist downloading?
However, it shouldn't be restricted to veterans - it is an excellent iOS game in its own right.
This takes me back to days of old. It really is as good as the original. All it needs it multi-user play and it would be awesome. Simple to play with great sound effects. Thanks
