Description of The Ancient Art of War at Sea

Barry and Dave Murry follows up on the ground-breaking Ancient Art of War (AAOW) with Ancient Art of War in The Sea, a logical offshoot. Although the game engine remains virtually unchanged, much more content has been added by way of detailed scenario backgrounds and larger maps that make an average game last much longer.

As in AAOW, getting into the game is a simple affair of choosing your opponent and battlefield. The fun part is seeing the results your tactical prowess (or lack thereof) in real-time on the battlefield. Here is your chance to fight Thor Foote, Duke of Medina Sidonia, Blackbeard, Martin Tromp, John Paul Jones, and Lord Admiral Nelson. Battle locales are no less diverse and interesting: pirate-infested Caribbean, straits of Juan de Fuca, Old Finly (fictional), 1588 Spanish Armada invasion of England, Quiberon Bay, Trafalgar, and even includes finding the Bismarck in the Atlantic.

I got this game in Saudi Arabia for my kids way back in the 80's and came on a 5 1/2" floppy disk, we had an Amstrad 1640 back then and had so much fun with it, however, as we moved from DOS 3.3 and the 16 bit platform we found it difficult to play.

I could never get this game to work right on DOS 5.0 or 6.0; what little I could play of it was fun and challenging, but for all the historical authenticity, it wasn't in my top 10 childhood computer games.
