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!

Fix the loading glitch so that I can actually PLAY the game.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

On the whole, a great game

There are flaws, but it deserves a much bett score than it's gotten. My only problem is that upgrades cost you loot in the long term, when they should only really cost you once.

not all that great

but there is definitely potential to be untapped.

"defender" seems impossible I havent been able to figure out how to defeat 6 ships without getting sunk myself or the sitting ducks inside the circle.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

historical accuracy

Historically Napoleon wasn't there and by all mean he is not good at commanding naval force. His admiral is an idiot who never show initaitive and always fall back and play safe. When he chased british fleet too far, and found out admiral nelson was actually spring a trap for him, he didn't even fight. He ordered immediate retreat and wound up getting his entire fleet destroyed...

Liked the training, but the arcade was impossible,

Not in the "I couldn't do it possibly" kind of way, but in the "My computer is slow and the Timer at 1:30 is about as long as it took me to get from the start to checkpoint #2." Because the Timer is tied to "Real time" not "Game time", older PCs can't run this game.

Also, prone to crashing and what everyone else said.
