1701 A.D. is an RTS game that takes place during colonial times. You take up the role of colonizing island, fighting off your enemies, and eventually declaring independence and becoming a Civilization.

The choices for building your colonies differ greatly because each island has different resources, which forces you to trade with your allies or enemies. You can build up your own army or get troops from your Mother Country as you fight off the invaders.
