Hm, admittedly, when I last gave it a go (this year), I found it somewhat cumbersome. The extremely limited production and repair resources stressed me. Maybe I'm not as tough anymore ;)

Ah, one of those games which almost made me brake my keyboard. :P Being heavily outnumbered by the computer forces and the somewhat random battle encounters can be mightily stressful.

Still a great game, one which I funnily enough only learned to master in recent years. Younger me would be proud of myself. :)

Hmmm, almost feel an itch to play "just one level"…

One of my favorite turn based strategies. IIRC I got somewhere to level 12 and could not figure out how to complete it, so I never completed the game. :( Probably I should try it again. :)

Battle Isle - the game which got two different groups of games into public focus: wargames and German games. Both had had their loyal fan-base before, but both had been small. Tactical wargames turned into a very popular genre following this game. German games stayed a niche market in spite of this game's success.
