Salvo is a PC wargame celebrating the majestic battles from the age of fighting sail in a fun and easy to learn environment
Shrapnel Games has released an updated demo of Salvo, featuring four tutorial scenarios and a full campaign named 'The Bourbon Navy'. Inspired by the naval battles that changed the course of history (Chesapeake Bay, The Saints, Trafalgar), Salvo allows you to command battle fleets in the 17th, 18th and early 19th century naval warfare and make vital decisions between battles in an impressive hybrid 3D environment. The game offers fast paced action with both turn based control and automatic action support, 24 (tentative) scenarios, each one a full campaign of up to 14 battles, various ship types, land and shallow water conditions for realistic coastline scenarios, and more. Developed by Spruegames, Salvo will ship on July 5, 2005, and will be available for both the Windows and Mac OSX operating systems, and may be purchased through the Shrapnel Games' e-store, Gamers Front, for $39.95 plus shipping (which can be as low as free).
