Manage your planets, research new technologies, design ships, engage in combat, conduct diplomacy, and explore the cosmos. Once your people venture to the stars, they will encounter exotic spacefaring life forms.
Choose to lead any of twenty-one wildly different alien species. Each one has its own personality, evolutionary history, theme music, and approach to diplomacy. Strange effects abound: each species has its own special power, and technological advances allow you to bend the rules of the cosmos.
Combat in Ascendancy is turn based and occurs within star systems. It ranges from encounters between a few small ships up to large battles between as many as seven species at once, wielding fleets of ships with varying hull sizes and capabilities.
The new technologies the player can discover in Ascendancy allow enormous battleships to maintain a wide variety of devices including weapons, shields, and specialty gizmos that can change the course of a war with a single well-timed activation. The player controls combat: ship movement, firing weapons, raising shields, invading planets, planetary attacks on ships, and setting up combinations of moves so key gizmos can be used at the right time. At any time, the player has the option to activate the autopilot feature and watch combat run on-screen.
Ascendancy offers extensive diplomacy, communications options, and trading between species. Players can win through clever means that go beyond brute force.
Be a diplomat or a warlord. Win by force or by unity. Can you lead your people to Ascendancy?
Thanks to players of Ascendancy for the great reviews, ratings, and comments. Please keep them coming!
