Back of Case - DOS (US):



    Surging to power in the chaos of the French Revolution, Napoleon dealt the blow that rocked the continent. A military genius, his quest was to destroy his enemies. He rose from the rank of common officer to Emperor of France. No leader ever came closer to unifying Europe.


    The Revolution is over and your neighbors are uneasy. As Napoleon you must strive towards the greater glory of France! Defeat your adversaries and seize the throne.

    Diplomacy and military tactics are key to your success. Stop trade with dissident nations and overthrow their leaders. Dangers await you at every turn-but fight on with the strength of the Grande Armée! Fire cannons from mountain passes, charge your cavalry, and construct bridges to reach your foe.

    Only you can lead the French to victory over Europe!

    • 4 scenarios based on Napoleon's career
    • Cunning opponents to test your military genius
    • Historical battlefields of 19th century Europe

    • Stoppen Sie mit Ihrer Artillerie den Vorstoß der österreichischen Kavallerie. Einkreisungsgefahr vom Süden her.
    • Werden die Engländer in St. Malo landen? Wird Dänemark die Kontinentalsperre einhalten?
    • Haushalten Sie mit ihrem Budget. Födern Sie Industrie und Landwirtschaft.
    • Alle großen europäischen Hauptstädte werden Ihnen zu Füßen liegen, vielleicht sogar Moskau und London!

    Wie wär's mit einem Seitenwechsel? Dieses reichhaltige Spiel wird Ihnen Gelegenheit geben, Napoleons Aufstieg und Fall hautnah mitzuerleben. In der Tat war sein Schicksal, ein Kaiserreich zu gründen, Nationen zu vereinen und Armeen zu besiegen, von den Anfängen in Italien 1796 bis zu seiner fatalen Niederlage bei Waterloo 1815. Tauschen Sie doch mal die Rollen: besetzen Sie Berlin, Wien und Hamburg! Um Österreich und das Deutsche Reich in die Knie zu zwingen, lenken Sie die Wirtschaft und die diplomatischen Beziehungen Frankreichs. Bereiten Sie sich auf den Krieg vor; ob im Sommer oder Winter, auf Land oder auf See, attackieren Sie an allen Fronten! Ihre Belohnung: die Vereinigung Europas, und zwar von 1800 an. Aber sind Sie in der Lage, auch Blücher zu bezwingen?
