Description from the packaging.

1492-1540.
The age of discovery, exploration and conquest.
The stage of history belonged to Spain. Now it belongs to you.

Set sail from Spain. Outfit your expedition and head west into the unknown. And if you make it back with gold and maps, the Court might make you a Governor General or even a Viceroy.

Discover the New World. Explore the Mississippi and the Amazon. The Great Lakes. The Straits of Magellan. Hidden gold mines. And 200 different native settlements, from small tribes of hunters and farmers to the mighty cities of the Aztec and Incan empires.

Aztec and Inca cities have the most gold. But how will you get it? Trade? Trickery? Treachery? Conquest? The natives are the key to your success. And a mirror for your soul.

Over 2,800 screens represent the worlds you'll explore, building computer drawn maps as you go. In the historical game you'll create an accurate map of the geography and populations of 16th Century North, South and Central America. And then, when you're ready...

Random continents. Face what the conquistadors faced. Ask you computer to dream up New Worlds, worlds never before seen by anyone. Then test yourself against the utterly unknown as gold and glory, out there somewhere, draw you ever deeper into an incredible fantasy of your own creation.
