Welcome to the collection of 7 best conquistador games. By definition conquistador means soldier + explorer. Conquistadors / conquistadores were the explorer-soldiers of the Spanish and Portuguese Empires of the exploration age, specifically 15th and 16th centuries. Let me say this first, conquistadors committed heinous crimes. But that was the norm back then… They were also super brave.
Oh, by the way, if you want to see the other side of the coin, check out the collection of games where you play as Aztec, Inca, or Maya. Trying to defend your civilization against technologically superior conquistadors should offer quite the challenge.
Most famous conquistadors of history would be Hernan Cortes (Conquered Aztec Empire), Vasco Nunez de Balboa (Discoverer of the Pacific.), Fransisco Pizarro (Led the conquest of Inca.), and Pedro de Alvarado (Conquistador of the Maya). If you want to learn more about them, check out Wikipedia. Also, there is a TV series called Hernan in Amazon featuring the Hernan Cortes and his conquest of Aztec Empire. I highly recommend you watch it.
