TurboRisk plays the classic "World Domination Risk" game, where you are battling to conquer the world.
The main features include:
TurboRisk doesn't install any DLL or OCX or any other component in your Windows folders. It doesn't use the registry, except to register its Uninstall program.
For this reason TurboRisk is highly portable, you can move it from one machine to another by simply copying its folder. Similarly, you can run it from any memory device with no need to install it on the target machine.
A complete TurboRisk installation will put the following files into the selected TurboRisk folder:
TurboRisk.exe: The TurboRisk game.
TurboRisk.ini: Configuration file.
TurboRisk.chm: The TurboRisk help file.
TRMap.exe: TurboRisk Map Editor, a companion tool to create custom maps.
TRComp.exe: TurboRisk Compiler, a companion tool to develope artificial intelligence players.
Docfolder: contains TurboRisk additional documentation.
Mapsfolder: contains the map files (extensions are ".trm" and ".bmp").
Playersfolder: contains the artificial intelligence players (extension is ".trp").
