Trafalgar Origins is an educational online game set against a backdrop of British, French and Spanish tensions during the Napoleonic wars. In the game you take command of a Royal Navy ship and her crew, to go to battle in historical recreations of Napoleonic naval battles.

There are two modes of gameplay - Single Player and Multi-player.

There are 18 single player missions in total, split into 3 main groupings of Training, Arcade and Historic.

Training missions help you learn how to sail their ship as well as build up and manage your crew.

Arcade missions build on skills acquired during training, enabling you to take part in real nautical exercises, defeating foes, sinking ships and collecting loot.

Historic missions recreate actual skirmishes experienced by Nelson and the allied navy where you pit your skills against enemy ships.

The multi-player option allows you to play together in real time against up to four other users.

Have fun!

Memory issues are very severe.

I see in the author comments that the makers of the game aware there is an issue and have tried to improve it, but there's still some problem that needs to be caught. I run a rig that typically keeps ~700MB of ram free for programs, and loading mission 5 of the historical campaign eats it all, rendering my computer inoperable until I use task manager to kill the processes.

The game itself, when it works, is fine, better than most naval action games. It's also pretty good (read: non-invasive) at executing its edutainment goal, which is also commendable. But when a simple FLASH GAME cripples my computer, it's not going to get very good marks from me.
