Description of Battles of Napoleon

Released in 1991, this is a very realistic war game on the most famous battles of Napoleon's career -- the game comes with Borodino, Waterloo, Quatre Bras, and Auerstadt, but you can design your own ones. You have the ability to play as either the French or the Allies, and all aspects of the battles are here -- cavalry charges, artillery barrages, infantry squares, and so on.

The EGA Graphics are pretty good, despite the age of the game. Downsides to the game are the STEEP learning curve -- the manual is over 100 pages in length -- no mouse support, and horrible sounding PC Speaker sounds.

If you are looking for a good war game on Napoleon's battles, and have the patience to learn this, this is the best game out there.

You have to change the executable from r-bon to the actual game.

I can start it in DodBox, but it keeps asking me to insert floppy or game disk, but the file doesn't show up, so I'm stuck.

Any idea's?

A crack is included in this download. Run "R-BON.COM" in the folder from DosBox. You only need to do it once. After that whenever you run "Start.exe" and is prompted for a password, just type in anything. How did I found out? I saw someone on YouTube starting this game by randomly typing anything, then I found the only executable beside Start.exe. Ran it, game don't start. But I don't need a password ever since! By the way, just got this to run from my android tablet. Now I'm a Napoleonic gameboy! Vive l'empereur!

I found the rule book on the internet. If you have not played you need to read it anyway. Very detailed. Graphics suck but it is a great game.

Can not play it keeps asking me for a first letter from the rule book and a random page each time I try to activate it from dos box. Please help it looks really cool.
