Homeworld: Cataclysm (2000)
Simulation - Strategy
||Barking Dog Studios Ltd.
Cataclysm is an add-on for the RTS Homeworld.
It includes a new race, called "The Beast", a kind of a parasite that just converts everything it comes by.
There are also new units available, like the mimic, which is a futuristic kamikaze fighter; a ramming frigate, that crashes into hostile ships, preferably cruisers; and many more.
Home base management became more complex. If one wants to research new ship classes, one has to build an extra research lab for this; if one wants to research a new weapon technology, one's got to build another. If the player wants to expand his fleet, he has to build rooms for his pilots. All these parts are connected with the mother ship. The mission design is very different.
Multiplayer games are available on a local network or over the internet.
