Gunboat is a 2D action simulation. You take control of a U.S. Gunboat in several conflict zones.

Your Gunboat carries a crew of four men:

- A first-class petty officer who serves as boat captain and pilot
- A gunner’s mate, who controls the forward guns
- An engine man, who takes care of the engines and serves as midship gunner
- A seaman who controls the aft guns

All four men are cross-trained in each other’s tasks … redundancy becomes crucial if one or two crew members are wounded or dead.

Be careful on the rivers ...!

Anchors aweigh!


Gunboat ZX Spectrum While driving around the boat comes under heavy and sustained fire. It seems to get hit every few seconds. Fortunately these messages are followed by a 'No Damage Possible' message
Gunboat ZX Spectrum The default position for the captain's pencil is 'Redo'
Gunboat ZX Spectrum Grenade practice is much the same as gunnery practice - the difference being that fewer hits are needed to demolish a target
Gunboat ZX Spectrum From here the game plays just as in the practice sessions. navigate the river with land & enemies on both sides, shoot them, get to destination, shoot that...
