Waterloo, arguably the most famous battle in history, was fought on June 18, 1815 between the French Forces of the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and the English and combined Allied forces under the Duke of Wellington and Prussian forces under Field Marshall Blucher.
Waterloo the game was a revolutionary new concept in wargaming when it was published in 1989. Waterloo dispensed with the normal overview given to wargame commanders and instead gave a player the same point of view as real commanders on the field of battle.
Your orders in an age of pre-radio communication must pass through an elaborate chain of command with varying levels of success in the execution of those orders. Your orders may even be ignored if there is better local intelligence or your officers lack the skill or courage to perform them. You as the commander (Napoleon or Wellington) must even deal with a time delay in the occurrence in events and the time it takes for those events to be relayed back to HQ and the time it takes to issue orders and see those orders carried out. A text parser is used to issue orders during the game. The battle ends at 9:30 pm at which time full battle reports will become available and the results assessed. You are also given the option to review the battlefield.The game is solitaire only and the playing time is 10-20 hours.
Fight the most famous battle in history from a whole new perspective. Waterloo uses simple English language commands to give you a realistic control over regiments of infantry, cavalry and artillery.
The historical chains of command, battle reports and commander's 3-D perspective keep you in the thick of action. Can you repeat Wellington's Triumph and defeat the most famous general of them all? Can you command the victory that eluded Napoleon's grasp? The fate of nations is in your hands.
"SSI's import of the British simulation of the famous battle, as seen from the "commander's eye". Much more of a wargame than the historic staff simulations more commonly produced, it was a fascinating albeit frustrating game. Designer Peter Turcan has also designed Borodino 1812 and Armada." The game is also notable for its innovative use of isometric battlefield perspective, with realistic depth and terrains.
