Risk game where countries are all rectangles [Conquer the World]

Post by melbster20 »

Dos game played early 90s (likely an 80s game). Found a screenshot on uvlist, but cannot find any more info. Can someone confirm/deny this is "Risk" from 1989 (as shown on uvlist).

Have a great day!

It seems to be a simpler black&white (mcga/hercules/text mode?) version of this game entry: https://www.uvlist.net/game-190561-Conquer+the+World

https://archive.org/details/CONQUER_201711

Note the same text layout is seen under the graphics portion, and the same layout is used for the territories & connection lines between continents.

(It is also reminiscent of the graphics used in Soleaus 'Battle for Atlantis' & 'Isle wars' (found on MobyGames site) but it is not identical)
