Description of Salvo!

Advertisement
In today's world ships are behemoths of steel and electronics. Combat takes place in an almost videogame like environment, with engagements happening not hundreds of yards away but possibly hundreds of miles away. Life and death is decided by a click of the mouse, and in seconds a fleet can be sent to the bottom.

Travel back in time to an era when battles for the supremacy of the sea lanes was decided by brave men commanding massive fortresses of floating wood and cloth. No radar lock- ons, just the Mark I eyeball, and no guided missiles, just heavy orbs of iron. Battle would be joined so close together that you could practically see what your enemy had for lunch by spotting the stains on his uniform. This was an era of steel nerves and sound tactics, of sea knowledge and possessing a little bit of Poseidon's own luck. Spruegames' Salvo! recreates this era.

♦ Single player, turn-based game of naval warfare set during the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.
♦ Eschewing dry tables and charts, combat results are visually represented on the avatars, making combat resolution both beautiful to behold and highly functional to watch.
♦ Everything is rendered in full 3D and directly inspired by the artwork of the time depicting the naval battles.
♦ Command ships from a variety of navies that include the nations of England, Spain, the Netherlands, France, and the United States. Also get your plundering fix with the pirate hordes of Barbary and the Caribbean.
♦ Land and shallow water! Learn to take advantage of the environment while battling along a coastline.
♦ Variable winds for the ultimate combat challenge!
♦ Easy to use 'Action Marker' system provides precise control for individual ships, while Salvo's squadron controls allow you to direct whole groups of ships at the same time. Move, shoot, grapple, board, form a line of battle and more with just a few clicks of the mouse!
