Description

Based on the Belgian comic book, "Les Tuniques Bleues", this strategy game allows you to replay the American Civil War from both the North and the South sides.

In the strategy part of the game, you can move your troops on a map of the US. If two opposing armies enter the same state, the battle is played out in an action sequence. Additional action sequences must be accomplished when capturing an enemy fort or train.

The game also offers a two-player-mode.

Inspiration

The game is based on the European comic book series, "Les Tuniques Bleues" (known in English as "The Blue Jackets") as drawn and created by Cauvin and Lambil. It is set during the American Civil War. The manual has background information about this and a short humorous summary of the main characters that appear in the game from the comic books. There are also drawings throughout the manual.
