This title is, in a way, a continuation of the Civilization strategy-econimic games. It takes us to the Alpha Centauri planet, where the Sid Meier's Civilization II left off. Reaching the Alpha Centauri planet would end the events of Civilization II.

The gameplay is nearly identical to that known from Civilization, meaning: once again, we have to develop our nation by developing technology, economy, trade, army, and also take good political decisions. All takes place in a hostile environment of an alien planet, and all the options, including advancement and technology, are adjusted to the futuristic theme of the game.
