ie. that potentially-any-good-but-actually-quite-disappointing programme on BBC2 where contestant types get to take charge of Hannibal's elephants and command the armies.

Well, does anyone remember a couple of games for the Arc that let you do similar? One was called Waterloo, the other Dreadnoughts.

I'd like to have a go with these - anyone reckon they're still available anywhere?

Still, at least it's better than having some tit running round pretending he's surrounded by dinosaurs :o

Nope :(

Haven't spotted them on any of the various coverdisks and CD's I've got. Were they free or commercial?

*goes off to do a search*

Waterloo was certainly available for the BBC - I've got a copy of it somewhere. The graphics were nothing special (even for then) but I think most of the code was focussed on the AI, which wasn't too bad.

I loved dreadnoughts but I cant seem to see it anywhere online.

I sadly sold alot of my Acorn gear many years ago as i grew up with Gaming on Acorn before I discovered mainstream consoles and Windows PC

I would like a copy of dreadnoughts again if i could get one

I might have a copy. Not for sale, but would be happy to image it at some point.

Probably won't be anytime soon as I have a new baby daughter.
