Power At Sea is a computer game developed by Accolade in 1988 for the Commodore 64.


This game is a simulation of the Battle of Leyte Gulf, in which the Japanese attempt to capture the Pacific during World War II. The player commands a battleship, an aircraft carrier, and a troop ship, to launch naval gun barrages against enemy cave emplacements and direct assault forces to capture beachheads in enemy-held territory.[2]


In 1988, Dragon gave the game 3 out of 5 stars.[2] A 1991 Computer Gaming World survey of strategy and war games gave it one star out of five, criticizing the game's abridged order of battle and arcade combat.[3]
