Om detta spel

A steam-ship period naval combat games focusing on fleet-scale battles in real time. The naval combat game allows you to set up battle squadron groups, their formations and management, with realistic ship models and characteristics, as well as advanced ballistic and weapon models.

(Alternative History) In the second half of 1880s, the policy of imperialism in the tropical Pacific led to a local naval conflict between the U.S., Chile, the German Empire and the Kingdom of Spain.
None of the contestants wanted a big war. Therefore, only the quick clash of colonial squadrons in tropical waters will decide who will rule Oceania.

**************************************************************************************************************************
Panama Crisis with Chile vs USA 1885

In 1884 Chile emerged from the War of the Pacific as a potential threat to the hegemony of the United States. The Chilean navy, then the strongest fleet in the Pacific, was able to confront American policy. In 1882 Chile refused US mediation in the War of the Pacific. In 1885, as the United States Navy occupied Colon, then part of Colombia, the Chilean government ordered its navy to occupy Panama City and to force the American squadron to evacuate Colon.

**************************************************************************************************************************
Caroline Islands Crisis with Germany vs Spain 1885

Germany began her colonial enterprise very late and was, therefore, at a disadvantage, finding all the desirable places already occupied. The Spaniards claimed the Caroline Islands as their colony, but did not actually control them. Germany disputed the Spanish claim.

In August of 1885, Spain sent warships to Yap (Caroline Islands) to assert their territorial claim; however, the German government was aware of these ships and its squadron arrived the night before the Spanish landed.

**************************************************************************************************************************
Marianas Incident with Spain vs USA 1887

To strengthen its position in the Pacific Ocean; the United States needs to control at least one of the tropical islands such as the Spanish Mariana Islands, or the Samoan archipelago. Events in Cuba and internal problems did not allow Spain to strengthen its colony in Oceania. The Great powers were not interested in supporting the interests of Spain in the Pacific and did not interfere in the conflict.

None of the contestants wanted a big war. Therefore, only the quick clash of colonial squadrons in tropical waters will decide who will rule the Mariana Islands after 1887.

**************************************************************************************************************************

Samoan Crisis with Germany vs USA 1889

The Samoan archipelago is the last of the territories of Oceania which has not yet been colonized. The German Empire, through the tribal supreme chief, is trying to establish control over the Samoa. This leads to civil war between the natives. The United States supports the rebels. Governments of both nations have sent warships to the largest and busiest Apia harbor in Samoa. The commanders of naval squadrons ready for battle. Conflict of trade and strategic interests can be resolved only by force.

This game made me feel bad inside. Little to customize, wait... scratch that... nothing to customize even sound and graphics left me feeling empty. A hole opened up inside my soul and destroyed what little faith I had in a universal force for good. I no longer believe in anything because of Victorian Admirals Anthology. Please, for the love of whatever God is left in the universe, do not buy this game. It is a waste of 20 valuable dollars. Think about what you could do with that 20! Buy a Nautilus skin or send your kid to community college! Think about it, please... just think.

Not even worth the reduced prices. I was excited when I saw the screen shots of the ship models... but that turned out to be the only positive about the game. The controls are EXTREMELY limited and there is no setting area to change them. Also, you can only choose to fight 6 or so battles. As for the battles themselves... they consist of the player watching helplessly as your ships fire small puffs of white smoke at the enemy with sound effects which fail to bring about any form of excitement.

There's really, nothing to do. I wish I'd read the reviews or something first, but... I didn't. And I paid 20 EUR for something that's worth maybe... 5.

Ok so it is not the best game ever........ It really needs a update so that it can add more game content since it is really missing alot. Maybe somthing like a skermish mode would be nice. I would give this game a 4/10 since it is lacking in most parts of the game. But still it is a ok navel battle game.

Complete waste of money.

Not only do the graphics look like they were pressed through a potatoe - the game play is slow and repetative.
I was looking forward to controlling a ship in battle. Not simple helm commands. left right midships.

There is no way to speed up the gameplay. It has two speeds. Snails Pace - and slightly faster snail.

It's a junker of a game - and over priced.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

Save your Three bucks and rent Master and Commander. You have more control over the battles in that movie with your DVD controller than you do over the ships in this game. What the hell is this POS?

I honestly regret not reading the reviews before buying this game. It is a huge waste of money. Sorry game developers but could you have at least tried to make this game worth the price.

No customization - including graphics - no tutorial, and not even a hint of a campaign to guide you through how to play means you're on your own when you start. So, I picked a battle, and had no idea what I was supposed to do. I turns out that your only options are telling the ship formations (not even individual ships) to speed up, slow down, go left, or go right. Then, you sit back and watch them beat the crap out of each other. That's it. I walked away from the computer during a battle for 15 minutes and came back because there was nothing for me to do.

It is a fascinating time period, and I'm going to force myself to play the scenarios so I can get some hint of my money's worth. If you're a fan of that period, then $3 might be worth the price, but not more than that.

I bought it for three dollars and that is about all it's worth.
It was mildly entertaining for a few hours, but that's it.
You'll probably want to uninstall it after a few plays.
There is not a lot to do other than set the ship's coarse, speed and when to start firing the cannons.
Then sit back and watch what happens.

It is incredible... An amazing idea for naval battles in 1880's, before world fleets evolved into all metel goliathans, turned super boring with only four playable scenarios; no campaign, no skirmishes. After you play the four scenarios, then what? Also, the shooting disturbs me; you can't control the ship's shooting and they can run away from the main fleet, so you can't even control each ship's movement. Da♥♥♥♥?
