MICROPROSE SWEEPS SOFTWARE PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION AWARDS WITH SID MEIER'S CIVILIZATION

 MICROPROSE SWEEPS SOFTWARE PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION AWARDS
 WITH SID MEIER'S CIVILIZATION
 HUNT VALLEY, Md., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- It was a very civilized affair at the annual Software Publishers Association Awards in Seattle as SID MEIER'S CIVILIZATION(TM) from MicroProse Software walked away with The Critic's Choice Award for Best Consumer Product, Best Strategy Program, and Best Entertainment Program for this year.
 "In computer entertainment, these awards are like the Oscars(R). To be nominated for one is exciting. To be nominated in three categories is an honor. But, to sweep the three categories in which we were nominated is phenomenal -- like hitting a grand slam in the World Series!" said Bill Stealey, president and chief executive officer of MicroProse, Inc. (NASDAQ: MPRS).
 A game that is being hailed as one of entertainment software's greatest achievements, CIVILIZATION is a computer strategy game that allows players to be the guiding spirit of a civilization. Players can control the destiny of their civilization from the founding of its first cities on through to the space age. By directing their civilization's scientific developments, economic growth, social and industrial reform, and military might, players strive to outwit competing civilizations led by such great historical figures as Napoleon, Genghis Kahn, and Julius Caesar.
 "The recognition of our peers is the ultimate testimony to the dedication of the talented individuals who design, market and promote these games," said Gerry Blair, VP of marketing for MicroProse.
 The three awards are more feathers in the cap of MicroProse. Since its inception 10 years ago, MicroProse has garnered an impressive list of awards in the computer entertainment industry. Games like F-15 Strike Eagle(R) and F-117A Stealth Fighter(TM) have earned the company a reputation as an innovative leader in flight simulation. Bold entries into various entertainment software categories also have met with success. As recently as last year, Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon(TM) won a host of industry awards, including Best Strategy Game of the Year from the Software Publishers Association.
 MicroProse designs and markets a full line of entertainment software for personal computers and video game machines. Its products are available nationally and internationally through major distributors, retailers and mass merchants.
