Description of Wooden Ships & Iron Men

In M.

Evan Brooks' words: "Released with the same name as its [awful] predecessor..., this remake suffered from mediocre graphics and play value. A number of gamers swear by this; I swear at it. The game turns are simply too long, and the sailing maneuvers become a matter of random guessing as to what the enemy will do. Action and reaction do not occur; instead, tactics seem more akin to paramecium movement; the campaign game consists of a four-month cruise only as the Americans in the War of 1812. "

The actual board game of WS&IM is far better than any computer game, this computer version of the game was actually very good for when it was released. Today, it is still worth playing and all the files you need are here and work. Be sure to DL the manual and install instructions for more details. The manual is that actual manual that came with the PC version of the game. Good job.
