Game Description:1848 was a year of revolutions. Most of the uprisings were crushed quickly, but Hungary was an exception. In the spring of 1849 the Hungarian army seized victory from the Austrians and liberated the entire nation but victory was short and sweet – in the summer the Tsar of Russia intervened with 200,000 troops. In history, this force could not be stopped. Can you change history?
1848 is a turn based operational strategy game for the PC. The game plays out on a large hexagonal map. You are responsible for all your forces and must decide what do with each of them. Attack, retreat, recon, defend, fortify, siege an enemy fort or build a new army – the choice is up to you. This game was sponsored by the Hungarian Ministry of Education and the Hungarian version was originally released for the anniversary of 1848 in March 2005, and converted as a free game to English in 2006.
