Strategic Conquest is a two-player turn-based strategy game for the Apple II and Apple Macintosh, similar to Empire. It was published by PBI Software and the Macintosh version was continued by Delta Tao Software.
Strategic Conquest allows the player to control modern warfare units and conquer cities. It can be played either by two humans, or with a computer opponent. It also has the capability to be played over an AppleTalk network.
The player's objective in Strategic Conquest is to defeat the enemy and conquer the world. The world is divided into a rectangular grid made up of randomly placed islands, which contain cities. Cities can belong to either player, or they can be neutral. When controlled by either player, Cities can produce military units. Victory is achieved when all enemy cities have been conquered or when either player surrenders.
Though the game has not been updated since 1998, it is fully compatible with Macintosh System Software from 6 to 9, and is also playable under the Classic environment included with PowerPC versions of Mac OS X up to Mac OS X v10.4.

Famous quotes containing the words conquest and/or strategic:
“It is a conquest when we can lift ourselves above the annoyances of circumstances over which we have no control; but it is a greater victory when we can make those circumstances our helpers,when we can appreciate the good there is in them. It has often seemed to me as if Life stood beside me, looking me in the face, and saying, Child, you must learn to like me in the form in which you see me, before I can offer myself to you in any other aspect.”
—Lucy Larcom (18241893)
“Marriage is like a war. There are moments of chivalry and gallantry that attend the victorious advances and strategic retreats, the birth or death of children, the momentary conquest of loneliness, the sacrifice that ennobles him who makes it. But mostly there are the long dull sieges, the waiting, the terror and boredom. Women understand this better than men; they are better able to survive attrition.”
—Helen Hayes (19001993)
