Description from the packaging.

Are you ready to discover a New World?

From beyond the horizon, it beckons. Cross the Atlantic- never mind that you can only guess at the direction of the distant lands. Pirates will sink you in a cannon's flash- and other countries are eager to take America for their own.

Your settlers will harvest the land, providing goods to trade to keep your ships and men exploring. But watch out for the suspicious natives, and your opponents cities just over the horizon.

Be brave, be bold- and all America will be yours.

  • Discover America, then test your exploration skills with five other, unique worlds.
  • Share the new worlds riches with four computerized opponents- or take the offensive and keep it all.
  • Use four colorful maps to chart your progress, and compare fortunes with your competitors in a local inn.
  • Control all aspects of your empire with a simple, point and click mouse interface.
  • Watch as the unique, over-the-horizon view gives you early warning of enemy ships!
  • Watch your intelligent settlers move across their world- control each as much or as little as you want.
  • Build you fleet from a variety of Adventurers, Traders, and Man o' Wars, as you prepare to cross uncharted waters.
  • Steer your Man o' War towards an enemy vessel, and man the cannons for a battle at sea!
  • Watch your empire expand as you discover a New World.
  • Discovery features fabulous animated graphics!
