World War II tactical infantry simulation, with the computer utilized as a boardgame assist. Utilizing a hex-grid map and counters, it is has touches of the boardgames Squad Leader and Panzerblitz. However, it is awkward, clumsy and obsolete.
As usual, Avalon Hill has provided the source code, so if you'd like to make your own modifications to the game, you can. CLOSE ASSAULT is written in machine language rather than BASIC, however, so be advised. Now that I've played LEGIONNAIRE, I can't say that CLOSE ASSAULT is Avalon Hill's best computer wargame, but it IS their best for the Apple and TRS-80. I recommend it strongly to anyone who is looking for a first computer wargame.
