It’s strategic game. In this game you will not find any shooting or destroying any space ships. It’s just text based.
But, I think the game is cool. You have to plan how to attack the enemy, protect your own planet and beware of the enemy invasion to other planets.
For the beginning you will have 10 space ships. Every time you end your turn, your space ship will increase based on the production capacity (usually 10, but depend on the planet). You are in planet A and your enemy in planet B.
The keys to win the war are:
Always monitor the number of the enemy space ships.
Don’t send lots of your space ship at the beginning of the game.
Always attack the planet B with 2 space ships.
You have to attack the nearest planet to own it. If you own a planet, you will have their space ship industry to support your space ships army.
When you own a planet, don’t use their space ship directly. Wait until their space ships number is bigger than your enemy. Otherwise your enemy may take it back.
The more planets you own the easier you can defeat your enemy.

How to play?
From Ubuntu Terminal screen (Applications > Accessories > Terminal), type: konquest.
Enter how many ‘turn’ that you want to play. I usually put 40 and increase to more number if it’s not enough.
Click your planet, click your planet destination, enter number of space ships that you want to send and click ‘End Turn’.
The message is your own a planet.
If you win the game, you will have a message like below
