Harvest: Massive Encounter is a real-time strategy game for Mac OS X and Windows with battles of epic proportions and a unique style of resource management and exploration.
In this 2D fantasy you take on the role as the base commander of a space colony and must use five building types to efficiently expand and defend it. Build power plants, mineral harvesters and defense towers and make sure they have sufficient energy to fend off endless hordes of evil aliens. The game offers a vast array of possible strategies with these simple rules, and will compel you to try new and better base designs every time.
The fundamental gameplay action is to place buildings that cost credits and energy. Credits are gained by harvesting minerals from mineral fields, and energy is produced by power plants. What makes the game unique and interesting is how you get the energy to the building that requires it. Energy moves from the power plants to other locations by jumping between energy links that you place, and you can improve the energy network by setting waypoints.
You also need to build defenses. The aliens must be stopped with Laser Towers, Missile Turrets and over-charged bombs.
Your objective is to try to stay alive for as long as possible. Compete on the extensive online high-score lists, form player groups that battle against other groups, or simply try to beat your own record on each of the gameâs planets.
