A naval battle simulator based on Larry Bond
's popular Harpoon
board-game from 1980. In addition to the material found in the original game
, this release adds Mediterranean and Indian Ocean battlesets as well as three designer series battlesets for each area and easy-to-use scenario editor. The informative database is updated from the original version, but gameplay itself is somewhat inferior as in-flight refueling and weapons reloads for ships are no longer possible. There are 48 new scenarios included in the CD-ROM. However, the newer version, Harpoon Classic '97
, is also available and has everything added in this release as well as improved graphics.
