Imperial Space Command is a fun sci-fi wargame designed as an internal game for IBM's employees. The game is a novel multiplayer game that lets up to 8 players (any of whom can be computer controlled) compete in the race to conquer the galaxy. According to Scott Jones, the designer, ISC is "...a multi-player game of space exploration, colonization, and conquest based on my own design of a paper and pencil game that was frequently played by the IBM Simulation Games Club in Boca Raton, FL. A crude version of the program was developed in BASIC on the IBM 5100 and ported to BASIC on the TRS-80 by Ed Kiser of Coral Springs, FL. He later redesigned it and wrote it in Structured BASIC for the IBM PC." With good AI and a strong range of options, ISC is worth a look for armchair commanders who don't care much for graphics (for the game is entirely text-based). Too bad the sequel, ISC 2, was coded only for OS/2 system.
