There is also a full map editor is supplied but you cannot save maps or scenarios created in the demo. To play with some of the more difficult to build units (those that take more time), you may want to handicap the computer player or adjust your handicaps. If you are new to the world of Empire Deluxe, it does not take a rocket scientist to play. However, this is a strategy game, and there are some things that will come easier once you have read some of the manual, so don't forget to look over the manual when you get a chance. It can be viewed while playing the game. If you experience technical difficulties playing the demo, odds are you will experience them playing the game.
