Harpoon: Alpha 880916

The first thing I realise is that this is an old game. I have to hit space to get past the initial screens; a click won't work. Also, the graphical area is pretty small.

I took a look at the databases. Only a limited amount of stuff, but a very interesting view of the world back then. Everything has cost estimates, which is something you don't get today. The drawings were used in the Battle of Brunei MBX; it's a very interesting style which has an old school charm.

I couldn't find my orders; it took me a while to find out what side I was on and I couldn't refocus the map.

Being unable to really do anything, I decided to give up and move straight onto the next version.
