Islands Islands

Islands is a game of strategy and global domination for Acorn-compatible computers based on the popular board game Risk.


Play takes place between up to six players, any number of which can be controlled by the computer. A variety of different maps can be used, and a level designer (IslEdit) exists to define new ones. Sound effects, computer strength levels and bonus cards are optionally implemented. The application takes up around 900K of space, and runs on RISC OS 3.1 or later. A 256-colour or better display is recommended.

This program is stored as a Zip file. You will need a de-archiver, such as Sparkplug, to use it. Once decompressed, users of RISC OS computers should be able to run it as normal.

Islands uses the PlayIt module to generate sound effects, and requires this to be present on your system before it will run. You can download it here. Follow the instructions for installation; as long as PlayIt has been seen by the filer before Islands is run, all should be well.
