FreeCol 0.11.6 Description:
FreeCol is an open source, multiplatform and freely distributed graphical video game that aims to provide a perfect replica of the commercial Sid Meier's Colonization game, which was released in 1994. However, the gameplay is very similar to the Civilization game. In other words, FreeCol is a turn-based strategy (TBS) game where the player needs to build an independent nation and conquer the New World. Being written in Java, the game requires no installation, so all you have to do to get started, is to download the latest release from either the project’s official website, save the archive on your Home directory and unpack it. Open the extracted directory and double click on the FreeCol.jar file. Alternatively, if the game doesn’t start, open a terminal emulator, go to the location where you’ve extracted the archive file and run the ‘java -jar FreeCol.jar’ command.
