Description from the packaging.
"It is far better to be feared than loved if you cannot be both." -Niccolo Machiavelli, "The Prince"
Niccolo Machiavelli stunned the world with his brutal analysis of power politics in government and religion. Now you can use those same devious strategies to conquer your rivals in this addicting simulation of 14th century political life.
"A prudent ruler must not honor his word when it places his at a disadvantage."
Based on the multiple award-winning game Merchant Prince, Machiavelli the Prince allows you to rule the world and acquire vast wealth and power. You'll trade exotic goods with over 40 cities. You'll manipulate political and religious institutions using bribery, slander and assassination. You'll field mercenary armies capable of crushing your enemy on medieval battlefields. And you'll experience it all through brand-new Super VGA graphics.
"A wise prince should rely on what he controls, not on what he cannot control."
Play on a historical map, or in a randomly generated world. Face off against the sophisticated artificial intelligence of computer players or compete with up to three human players via modem. In Machiavelli the Prince, winning is a matter of strength, shrewdness, and clever deception.
