2/20 Combat Mission: Barbarosa To Berlin:
Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin (CMBB) is the revolutionary successor to the award winning game system pioneered in Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord. Bigger, bolder, larger in scope with layers of more detail, it is the epitome of the state of the art in combat simulations.
Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin is a 1-2 player, hybrid turn-based/realtime 3D simulation of WWII tactical warfare on the Eastern Front from 1941 to 1945.
Experience combat in a full 3D battlefield as tracers arc overhead and exploding shells shake the earth! Feel the tremendous power of the feared Russian Katyusha rocket barrage! Order a tank hunter team to assault a heavy KV-1 with Panzerfausts and magnetic mines in the ruins of a shattered city! The fluid game interface combines with 3D lines of sight, misidentification of targets, enemy detection by sound, advanced armor penetration systems, unit morale and leadership effects, spreading fires and billowing smoke, wind and weather – and much more to bring you unprecedented realism in a computer simulation.
3/20 Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord:
Combat Mission is a 1-2 player, turn-based, simultaneous-execution 3D simulation of WWII tactical warfare. It combines unparalleled game depth and ease of use with a true 3D environment. The move to the 3rd dimension is not just to look cool, rather it it improves the accuracy of the simulation. Think of the world around us - it's all 3D. True 3D LOS, 3D spotting, 3D terrain, and 3D trajectories are a lot more realistic than 2D approximations, so that is what CM delivers!
Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord takes you from Normandy 1944 to Germany 1945 on World War Two's Western Front. Play as Allied or Axis, ranging from US Airborne to German Volkssturm. Battle across the bocage, tackle a village or two, drive through the plains, push into the woods, and slog it out in cities. CM provides all this and more with its historical scenarios and campaigns. And if there is a battle that isn't covered, make it up yourself with the easy to use editor.
4/20 DarkStar One:
The galactic peace is endangered by the frequent attacks of the Thul and by the threat of a sinister presence that lurks on the horizon. Suspicion almost breaks the Great Council apart. Another war seems inevitable. In all this turmoil, Skip finds clues about his father’s secret. An unknown technology aboard the DarkStar One appears to be the key until an unexpected twist changes the course of events significantly…
Ascaron Entertainment bring their extensive experience of simulated real-world game environments to DarkStar One. The game provides exhilarating and dramatic action, whilst incorporating dynamic populace, economic and military cycles, linking the hundreds of worlds that exist with the simulation of an active, living universe of busy freight traffic, pirate activities, fighter escorts and combat maneuvers. This allows for many gameplay styles – become a pirate, raiding and destroying, or an escort supporting cargo fleets, or a mercenary available to the highest bidder. Alternatively, the player may decide to act as a bounty hunter who brings down pirates. This freedom of choice offers numerous side quests, missions and mysterious artifacts.
DarkStar One sets new graphical standards in explosive, deep-space action. The space ships are intricately designed, and spectacular special effects guarantee a truly galactic, action-packed adventure.
5/20 Disciples II: Gallean's Return:
Disciples II: Guardians of the Light is a stand-alone expansion that lets you dive into the fantastical world of Disciples II as either the Empire or the Mountain Clans.

Meanwhile the Clans, recovering from their near-destruction, begin to reunite their tribes. They have received divine instructions and now seek to uncover an ancient ritual that will let them communicate with their god, Wotan.
Disciples II: Servants of the Dark is a stand-alone expansion that brings you into the never-ending quest for supremacy as either the Undead Hordes or the Legions of the Damned.
On the dark side, the Legions of the Damned enact a plan to spread Bethrezen’s plague across Nevendaar. They sense the threat brought about by the rebirth of the Elven god and will stop at nothing to steal this power for their own purposes. Perhaps most pivotal to the conflict, however, is Mortis and her army of Undead Hordes. After all, the rebirth of her husband Gallean was her doing. He had rejected her for what she had become, a twisted, heartless beast. Now she would teach her mate a lesson... one that would scar his people for eternity...
6/20 Disciples II: Rise Of The Elves Gold:

7/20 GODS: Lands of Infinity Special Edition:
The ancient world of Bellarion struggled in the never ending war of Gods. The conflict began when Xarax, ruler of the Gods, was murdered. Each of the remaining Gods claimed the right to the Divine Throne. After many battles, the defeated Gods refused to submit to the victors and instead summoned their armies to attack the worshippers of other Gods. The deaths of those worshippers weakened the power of the conquering Gods. After 2000 years of battles, Bellarion lay in ruins. No one was able to achieve victory until the God of Darkness, Mortagon, found a new weapon which resisted all magic and divine powers.
As the last hope Arswaargh, the God of Fire, created Vivien, who he fashioned after his own astral body. Arswaargh sent Vivien through space and time to seek the counter-weapon needed to defy Mortagorn, but unfortunately, she lost her divine essence while traveling through the magical portal to another world. Vivien must now seek the Gods of the new world, gain back her power and search for the counter-weapon against Mortagorn.

But make haste, and be wary of the treachery and mutiny that can reduce all of that to nothing.
You start the game with a small reserve of money and a basic ship, which is suitable only for the smaller prey and voyages to discover the rest of the world. To gain in strength you need to get larger, stronger ships, which would make the conquering of cities a real possibility.
Successful raids on transport, trade and military convoys as well as on pirates provide the funds for the much needed faster, more agile ships as well as the well-equipped battleships.
Accepting missions from your local Mayor will help you gain riches for yourself and for your crew, who are eagerly awaiting their share of the treasures.
The entire game world is filled with traders, pirates and buccaneers, as well as huge transport convoys. All you have to do is select the right targets and adversaries. Be careful though, lest the hunter become the hunted

19/20 Tortuga: Two Treasures:
Set in the Caribbean of the early 18th century, "Tortuga - Two Treasures" is an action adventure brimming with Caribbean myth, legendary treasures and fearsome pirates.
Renowned writers Wolfgang Walk, Mark L. Barrett and Bob Bates tell the tale of Thomas "Hawk" Blythe and his powerful adversary, Edward Teach, better known as the dreaded Blackbeard. It is as much a pirate tale as ever there was, and this is one to make the blood boil with love and honor, conspiracy and theft, violence and murder.
Each of the many missions poses a fresh challenge for the hero "Hawk". At land or at sea there are new skills to master, as well as special items to collect and use with cunning in order to defeat your enemies and build your reputation as a freebooter.
Set your sails and stand ready for challenging and exhilarating action in the Caribbean.
Thomas "Hawk" Blythe is the captain of the swift pirate frigate "Hawkwind". Both he and his girlfriend, the voodoo priestess Sangua, captain ships under the high command of the notorious pirate leader "Blackbeard".
Together, Hawk and Sangua embark on a search for the legendary treasure of Henry Morgan. Morgan was an infamous pirate and Governor of Jamaica approximately fifty years earlier. Many rumours surrounded Morgan and the immeasurable wealth he had amassed during his years of piracy and governing. It is said that, before he died, Morgan secreted away his treasures and ruthlessly eliminated all those who had any knowledge of these riches.
Whilst hunting for an almost mythical treasure brings its own difficulties, Hawk's progress is hindered by a merciless twist of fate.
Tortuga - Two Treasures tells of Thomas "Hawk" Blythe's struggle against a world growing blacker by the day. Betrayal and death are but a small element of Hawk's adventures. Forged treasure maps, voodoo magic, a deadly curse and the seemingly ever-present threat of Blackbeard's wrath all appear focused on stifling Hawk as he plunges into a battle for power, romance, treasure and truth.
