Screenshot

Based in a sector of deep space called K240 in the year 2380, the game involves building space colonies on a cluster of asteroids and mining them for valuable ore, while fighting against several different races of hostile aliens with similar motives.

Reception[edit]

The game achieved a review score of 91% in CU Amiga[1]

Legacy[edit]

K240 was succeeded by Fragile Allegiance, which is a PC remake of the game with improved graphics and user interface. Many of the buildings, ships, missiles, and game concepts are the same. However, the Human Empire is dissolved in a coup, and united with several alien races in a multiracial Federation. There are also gameplay differences resulting from ships being given limited range as well as espionage.
