White Death

aka: White Death: Battle for Velikiye Luki, November 1942
Moby ID: 54471
Amiga Specs

Description

White Death is based on the board game of the same name and deals with the fights around the Russian village Velikiye Luki in 1942. There are six scenarios, dealing with different phases of the fight, and the player either takes the role of the German or Russian side of the conflict.

This is one of those games which tries to simulate not only the scenario but also the warfare and its tactics as closely as possible. Shown from the typical top-down view on a map with hex grids, the player gives orders to the units through a menu system. The units are represented by icons which each have a little bar showing their strength and movement. Other examples of the things the player needs to take into account are morale, terrain, support and a tactical wise unit placement/movement.
