Description from the packaging.

Germany's massive dreadnought, Bismarck, sent Her Majesty's Ship Hood to the bottom of the icy Atlantic on the evening of 24 May 1941. Of the Hood's 1,415 crewmen, only 3 survived.

Bismarck's guns are powerful enough to hurl automobile-sized shells for miles. With such awesome firepower, can she invincibly prowl the sea lanes? Can Britain stop her?

Bismarck- The North Sea Chase is a taut, multi-level game featuring full joystick control; real-time action; and variable speed and difficulty levels. You're in charge of an exciting array of technical controls: Main Screen Map, Air Reconnaissance Screen, Weather Forecasting, Radar Search, Bridge Command and more!

And when it's time for action, you direct the anti-aircraft and heavy guns; launch torpedo attacks; and manage damage control!

If you tire of command from the bridge, you can pilot a Fairey Swordfish torpedo plane off a carrier flight deck. Hunt Bismarck from the air via this exciting, cockpit-perfect flight simulator.

With options to control either The Royal Navy or the infamous German battleship, Bismarck-The North Sea Chase provides an abundance of intriguing, sharp-edged game play.

  • Flight and battleship simulations.
  • War simulation- strategy game.
  • Select battles option
