Anno 1602: Creation of a New World (1602 A.D.) is a real time strategy and city building video game set in the 16th century. Gameplay is based around exploring, colony building and resource management on a series of small islands. It includes aspects of exploration, city city building, combat, diplomacy and trade.
It is set in the same period as Sid Meier’s Colonization involving more detailed colony management, with no “Old World” politics. Parts, like expansion and movement of resources, are similar to the early Settlers games. Anno 1602 is an economic, rather than combat orientated strategy game as players are rarely challenged in battle. The sequels of Anno 1602 are titled Anno 1503, Anno 1701, Anno 1404, and Anno 2070.
