An early version of Napoleon's Waterloo, the game is commendable for ease of play, but marred by ahistorical tactics necessary for victory.
 
The mechanics are easy to master and the game responds quickly to the joystick. Each of the French corps have the names of their commanders and I often find myself trying to re-play historical situations. The computer opponent simulates Wellington's strategy in that it will fall back when attacked, except in the center, and will almost never attack you. The British left will collapse toward the center while the right seems to fall back. This means you can separate the right flank. The playing area is small and the game somewhat short, but we are talking about recreating the Battle of Waterloo not Napoleon's campaigns. The game has no difficulty options and you must play Napoleon against a computer controlled Wellington. This game has a lot going for it.
