Abstract: EMPIRE is a strategy and tactics war game, pitting you
against the computer.  The game is played on a computer
generated map that contains land areas, sea areas and
cities.  The object of the game is to eliminate the
opponent by capturing cities and destroying the enemy
forces.  Cities once captured have production
capability and can produce units such as armies,
fighters, destroyers, submarines or carriers for offense
or defense.  Of course, the computer is trying to crush
your forces and take over the world, as are you.
Early in the game, exploration is most predominate,
followed later by planned offensives and holding actions,
till eventually victory or defeat.
Warning:  typical games can take as long as ten hours, and
some people find the game addictive.  The program keeps the
game state in a disk file, and a single game usually takes
multiple terminal sessions.  The .DOC file containing the
instructions is correct and complete, but is terse and lacks
examples.  This sometimes causes confusion in the first
Notes: Uses I & D space, reduced mapping, fixes odd address trap on
