This is SINKING SHIPS, a one- or two-player fighting game about naval combat during the Napoleonic Wars, like Star Control meets Wooden Ships & Iron Men. Keep one eye on your enemy and the other on your wind-vane as you angle for the perfect position to unleash your broadside.

  • Take command of one of four “authentic” ships—Sloop, Xebec, Brigantine, or Man o’War—each with its own unique advantages and sailing characteristics.
  • Learn to sail!* Maneuver against the wind, and hold the weather-gage to defeat your opponent.
  • Play against the AI, or sink a friend(ship) in local multiplayer.
  • Fight a single engagement, or take on all comers as you vie for the high score in the endless “Survival” mode.
  • Attack by day, or clash by night using the flash of your cannon fire to illuminate your enemy.

*not actual sailing lesson. do not attempt on real boat.

About the games that inspired this one: check out Broadsides from SSI (1983) on the C64, A8 and Apple II too.
