    This is one of my favorite games to date. It has a neat mix of sims style game play with space building and exploration. the aliens you face are a nuisance and a blast to contend with. I think this is really a hidden gem and did not get the fans nor attention it deserved.

    Combining the addictive life-simulation aspects of The Sims with real-time strategy elements, Firefly Studios has produced Space Colony, a tough, funny, and very charismatic hybrid.
  2. And that's where Space Colony breaks down a little - way, way too much to deal with. At times, you'll be so busy just trying to keep up with every gameplay element that it starts to lose its fun.
  3. Firefly has offered a level editor with the game, allowing players to compile their own campaigns or swap them over the net, but I can't see this breathing much life into a title that exhausts its appeal so quickly. Nevertheless, it's undoubtedly one for the management fetishists.
