Starting to toy around with Shrapnel Game's "Salvo" ....
I've been on a quest to find a good turn-based Age of Sail game ... and went through Age of Sail, Age of Sail 2, Wooden Ships and Iron men ... and all either had technical issues getting the old games to work on modern OS or controls were lacking etc ....
Salvo works quite well on Win 8.1 and so far, looks to have sufficient depth (wind direction, crew allocation, ammo type, Morale, boarding actions all important parts) ....
Final verdict still pending.
Could you, please, report back when the final judgement is in?
