Rommel: Battles for Tobruk by Games Designers’ Workshop (GDW) was planned to be a war strategy game, based around four battles fought between the WWII German commander Rommel and the British in North Africa.
Our evidence for the Commodore 64 version of the game comes from a full-page advert by the games designers, who give a detailed description of the game and the combat system used, detailing features such as hidden movement, tactical and strategic maps and details of your armies morale.
The game was however released on the Atari platform, more details can be read below:
Nothing else is known about the C64 conversion though – and surprising considering that the Atari version did well on its release. Was the C64 version ever even started?
More digging required for this entry, and we hope to track down some of the original developers at some point in the future.
