Description

In the colorful strategy game NORTH vs SOUTH, you play the head of one of the armies of the Civil War. Your aim is to conquer American territory. This is a remastered version of the game that was released in 1990, with improved graphics and user-friendliness that are up to current standards. Head up the Yankees or Confederates, and destroy your enemy! Taking up positions, capturing states, assaulting and capturing enemy forts, attacking trains and protecting your railroads . . . you'll have to deal with everything!

Capture the port to use the reinforcements coming from Europe. Protect yourself from storms and be wary of those Indians in the war and those Mexican bandits . . . if you don't, you'll be in trouble! To come out in one piece, you'll have to master taking turns, armed battles in real time, 1 against 30 shoot-outs, and horseback train chases. Whether you play alone or with others, the objective is the same - emerge victorious from these eventful combats!

  • Dynamic and strategic battles
  • Several mini games that vary the tempo of the battles (real-time battles, train attacks, fort assaults . . . )
  • Parameters you can change to your liking! Calm or savagery?

Remastered hit of the old days

Do you remember the old North & South game that we used to play on our Amigas and Commodores? If you feel nostalgic about the old days of gaming, try your games in various emulators only to become disappointed how ugly they look in today's standards, this game should catch your interest! It's a new incarnation of the old hit, a remastered version of North & South. And although it still doesn't look like strategy games look now, it would be impossible to keep the spirit of the classic title in an even more modern style.

In The Bluecoats - North Vs South you will find everything you loved about the original game, but also much more. The interface is better done and more intuitive, graphics are whole lots better than before but they still remind of the original, the gameplay concept is unchanged but new elements are added and customization greatly enhanced. So instead of forcing yourself to play the dated original, spend some time playing the refreshed version. It's much more accessible.
