Quick Battle Calculator’s for Neptune’s Pride

15 February, 2010 (15:56) | Gaming | By: Brian

This week I discovered a great browser-based 4x game called “Neptune’s Pride.” Take Master of Orion with real-time fleet movement, slim down the tech tree and add a dash of Diplomacy and you have this game. It’s free, it’s elegant and it’s fun, all things I look for in a game. To help me with planning, I whipped up two quick and dirty battle calculators in PHP which can be found here. Nothing too fancy, but they should get the job done.

On a related note, I started up an account on the Andromeda server of OGame. OGame is essentially Ikarium with a space theme. Which I am also a sucker for. Both are good coffee break amusements for the time being.

I also bought Assassin’s Creed II for Lynn for Valentine’s Day, and we should enjoy playing that together, too!

You missed the big euphemistic “US” – he bought it for “US” to play.
