Default Great Stuff

That was a dangerously addictive demo.

I just tried it out when putting together the demos on the Dominions II CD and Space Horse had the wackiest title, so I had to find out what it was.

Does the full Version end after twelve months instead?

Makes me quite interested in taking a look at the original Mule too! Is it located in the wild west instead of space?

So what I want to say is that if you want a Space Horse demo you shuold buy Dominions II

I think that M.U.L.E is also located in space, not sure though because i have never actualy played the game, just heard and read about it.

I beta-tested that one but lost my copy when my hard-drive crashed. (Never got a CD from that test . . . hmm Should said something about that a long time ago!)

I enjoyed the game so much I may have go ahead and buy a new copy though. It's too painful not to be able to have a fix of Horse every now and again.

Err, maybe I should rewrite that Last sentence.

Anyway, I can't remember the length of the games in Space Horse, but I think they are either 1 or 2 years in duration. (My brain is a bit fatigue-sodden tonight.)

The original M.U.L.E. (I also can't remember what the acronym stands for now. ) was set in space. Space Horse is much like M.U.L.E., only with a good number of added features and (obviously, since M.U.L.E. came out in '84) a more modern interface and graphical look.

Hey guys. I'm glad you like the demo. The full game does go 12 turns (months). Of course, there is a bunch of other stuff in the full Version as well.

M.U.L.E. was also in space, but had a slightly different premise. The gameplay was similar, except everybody was required to use joysticks, and I added some of my own ideas.

I just downloaded & played the demo. I'm interested in buying the game, but the game play in the demo seems very slow. In MULE I could develop a plot, assay land & have time to make it back to the pub. In this game, I barely have time to develop a plot of land. Is this the way it should be, or is it just a demo "feature" or am I doing something wrong?

There should be plenty of time to do those things, as long as you're not doing everything on a plot of land that it on the edge of the map. Also, if you're playing on "Pro" skill level, the timer goes faster.

The full Version has additional options that match the ol' M.U.L.E. gameplay.
