"Sinking of a hostile armed troop carrier by German submarine in the Mediterranean sea" by Willy Stöwer.
Join the Kaiserliche Marineand bring the realm of King George V to its knees in Uboot-sim! The game is Google Maps based (no installation needed) and allows players to command a fleet of U-Boats to pray upon British and Allied shipping in World War I (remember, you are fighting for imperialism against imperialism, not for imperial fascism against imperial quasi-democracies like in World War II). This is a fun time killer. The "geography" of the game is that the shipping lanes are accurate and can give one an idea of transportation routes and nautical choke points. But mostly its just fun, enjoy it... for the Kaiser! (Hat tip: Google Maps Mania)
