From: Snowflake, Arizona
here is a windows version
This was posted awhile back (somewhere) and I went ahead and ordered it. The game has some installation issues (the install screens are garbage text, but the manual says "just keep hitting return and the program will install". I can't understand why something like a missing font wouldn't be fixed as it looks very unprofessional to ship a game that way. However, once installed, the game played perfectly (and much, much faster than my old Apple II version). It is still a great game and I enjoyed playing through a couple of quick scenarios (it includes all of their European and fantasy scenarios also).
I would love to see Matrix pick this up and do an upgrade. The game design is solid, it would just benefit greatly from improved graphics and sound. It would be a nice adjunct to WiTP and UV. Similar in some ways, but Carriers at War actually shows your search planes and your attacks tracking across the map. On the carriers you are micro-managing the arming and fueling of your planes befor an attack and making very detailed decisions about the number of planes to put up on CAP over your carriers. Defiitely a classic... and definitely worth an upgrade.
Also worth buying "as is".
