Wargame: WWII

America Fights Back!

The Japanese had caught the Americans off guard at Pearl Harbor, but since then the forces of the American army and navy had been fighting back. The American military attacked the Japanese positions on the island of Guadalcanal but both sides were determined to prevail. While fighting took place on the island itself, a fierce struggle occurred in the waters off Guadalcanal and Savo Island. The inexperienced American Navy, with the advantage of radar, was fighting against the Japanese Imperial Navy and their superior torpedoes. This action would result in such familiar names as Ironbottom Sound and the Tokyo Express. The outcome would determine if the American campaign to retake the Solomon Islands could succeed or if the Japanese would retain their conquered empire.

High-Water Mark of the Imperial Navy During the 1942-43 campaign for the southern Solomon Island of Guadalcanal in 1942-43, many naval battles were fought to cement the material advantage gained by the Allies after the stunning Japanese losses at the Battle of Midway; NC3: Guadalcanal features 14 of these scenarios including Savo Island--a costly Allied setback, Cape Esperance--where the Japanese were struck back hard, Tassafaronga, Cape St. George, Kolombangara, and others.

Features:

Game includes shore data for the famous Iron Bottom Sound including Savo Island, Guadalcanal, and the surrounding islands. Land blocks both movement and line-of-sight.

Radar has been added to the Naval Campaigns game engine allowing ships equipped with radar to spot enemy ships not within the limits of visibility.

Radar detection has also been added which allows ships so equipped to detect ships with radar.

The game database includes all of the ships that participated in the historical battles around Guadalcanal including battleships, destroyers, and PT boats. It also includes several extra ships like the Japanese battleship Yamato.

Armor belts, mines, torpedoes, smoke laying, and visibility effects.

A scenario editor is also included with the game; The scenario editor allows new scenarios to be constructed from the provided ship database and existing scenarios to be modified.

Both the main program and scenario editor can read in a situation chart in Windows BMP format and display that chart on the screen overlaid with the position of the ships in the battle. This allows new scenarios to be created from historical situation charts and allows players to compare the outcome of their battles with the historical result.
