Balance of Power was Mindscape's classic strategy game of gaining political power whilst trying to avoid nuclear war. This 1990 Edition was released in 1989.
I'm not much of a fan of strategy games. I'm sure they can be good, but they never look easy to master nor do they reward the player with little more than a text message as feedback for your actions. Balance of Power is somewhat guilty of this, and I personally didn't find the graphics too alluring. Using the 640x200 super hi-res mode of the IIGS with its standard dithered colour palette hasn't helped. And where are the sound effects? That would have helped to liven up proceedings.
