Lost Admiral Returns

Player's Manual - About Fogstone



Battleships are lots of fun in Lost Admiral Returns.  Unlike most Battleship Games, you can maneuver these massive killing machines to dominate the battle ocean.  You can also enjoy the flavor of famous wwii battleship combat with your choice of famous ships such as the Yamato battleship, Battleship New Jersey, Battleship Texas, Battleship Missouri, or any other battleship that comes to mind.

Lost Admiral Returns is the creation of Fogstone Games and Thurston Searfoss. The game is inspired by the original Lost Admiral game created by Thurston Searfoss, QQP, and Bruce Williams in 1991.

The Lost Admiral won several awards, including "Strategy Game of the Year 1992" from Computer Gaming World Magazine. There is still a loyal following of people playing the original game over 12 years later, which has been the impetus for this new version to bring the world of Lost Admiral into the modern era of the Internet.
