Posted: Friday, April 30, 2004 by Shaun Wallace

Type: Update

Matrix Games and Adanac Command Studies (www.adanaccommandstudies.com) are pleased to announce the release of the first post-release patch, version 2.1 for the Army-Level Napoleonic Wargame, Campaigns on the Danube 1805 & 1809. Campaigns on the Danube 1805 & 1809 is the first game released under Matrix Games Digital Express game line. Years in the making by Designer and Developer Frank Hunter, Campaigns on the Danube is a unique simulation of Napoleonic-era command.

The first update focuses on bugs reported by customers since the initial release. The list of fixes includes Army Commander attachments, Some rare text overlaps and blank combat screens, PBEM issues and map display issues. With this patch, virtually all reported bugs have been addressed and the play experience should be improved. As with all Matrix Games titles, support will continue based on customer feedback.

In Campaigns on the Danube, players command historic, powerful armies as they face off against each other in a clash that would be destined to defeat Austria but prove for a brief time that Napoleon could indeed be stopped. Players will be able to take command of the French forces under Napoleon or Austrians under Charles and strike at each other over a large hex-based map. Cavalry, infantry, artillery, engineers, leaders, supply wagons, depots, and other counters may be maneuvered for maximum military effect, while the flexible combat system may be used either through the game system itself or through miniatures play.

For any connoisseur of Napoleonic gaming, Campaigns on the Danube 1805 & 1809 is a fascinating and fast-paced game that is bound to provide countless hours of surprises and conquest.

Game Features:

  • Map covers central Europe from Ulm in the west to Olmutz in the northeast
  • Maneuver elements consist of divisions and brigades
  • Realistic command delays, orders send to subordinates may be lost
  • Realistic army supply rules
  • AI can play either side (French or Austrians)
  • PBEM capability
  • Ability to fight battles using miniatures
  • Seven scenarios covering 1805 and 1809

    Wars of Napoleon New Feature: Nation Modifiers

    Wednesday, November 11, 2015

    To rule a Nation involved in over ten years of wars is not an easy task:you need always to adjust your priorities following unexpected events (or try to anticipate those events).

    In Wars of Napoleon, you will be able to manage the reforms you need to keep your Country capable of facing multiple situations (from  the need to establish puppet kingdoms to draft more - inexperienced - soldiers).

    Decide the priority of reforms your Nation will undergo and see how  they translate into National Modifiers. These national modifiers are shown visually for the first time in an Ageod game and it has never been so easy to see your Nation's strengths and weaknesses!
