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!

love love this. The last mission of the arcade set is very hard. I found I had to use shot, cannon balls and TNT to finish. Music is good, the art as well. I find it has little replay draw though. I would like to have the option of trading up on different ships that could hold more men and had raking ability. I'd like to even hoist my own flag too.
Thank you for creating this. a lot of fun!

Great game
I just found a bug that is a little annoying, when you press spacebar to make the ship moves sometimes it doesn't move right or left, is really annoying but at least is not something that happens all the times

I really like the game man, 10/10

how to play the game


Couldn't imagine that there was such a game for free! I love the look, and the little facts, and the gameplay itself - really gives you a feel of how it was back then. This is a dream come true.
Only complaint, as others have mentioned, are the avatars. They look a bit... strange.
And maybe a little thing - could there be a function to re-assign keys? I'm using a keyboard with a German layout, and Z and X are pretty far apart, which makes firing a bit difficult.

Great game

Very original
