Description

Harpoon Classic '97 is a revised version of traditional Harpoon Classic which is in turn, based on Larry Bond's original and very popular Harpoon board-game from 1980. The core gameplay is top-down (map and menu based) ultra-realistic strategic naval warfare wrapping around scenarios in 4 different theatres (North Atlantic, Greenland/Iceland, Indian Ocean, and Persian Gulf/Mediterranean).

New features in this release are the Windows 95 playability (cleaner interface), improved artwork and effects, along with 50 new missions. Additional updated ships and planes are also included.
