The PSS Wargamers Series has been created to combine elements of a strategy game like chess with the added excitement of graphic arcade sequences. The games require skill and mental agility and are designed for the person who wants a serious but stimulating game. The strategic level of the game is played on a map system, whilst the tactical elements of the game can if wanted be played in an arcade style.
COMMODORE AND AMSTRAD
BATTLE of BRITAINTHE SCENARIO
The Battle of Britain took place between July and October of 1940, and was the German Luftwaffes attempt to defeat the R.A.F. gain air superiority prior to Operation Sealion - the invasion of Great Britain scheduled for the summer of that year.
The ensuing battle has gone down in history as one of the most courageous of WWII culminating in the defeat of the Luftwaffe and the cancellation of Operation Sealion.
In the famous words of Winston Churchill:
"Never has so much been owned by so many to so few"
You are in control of Fighter Command and the computer simulates the operations room. Your task is to deploy your aircraft against the incoming squadrons of the Luftwaffe, whilst bearing in mind the problems of limited flying time, ammunition, available landing strips and the size of the incoming force.
You can also test your arcade skills by actually flying a Spitfire in air to air combat or firing an anti aircraft gun in ground to air battles.
