The Battle of the Bulge: Tigers in the Snow is a turn-based strategy video wargame, made in 1981 by Chuck Kroegel, David Landrey, and David Walker for the Apple II, Atari 8-bit, and TRS-80. It was later ported to the IBM PC and Commodore 64.

It was the first video game to feature the Battle of the Bulge of 1944 and 1945, a decisive Allied victory over German forces in World War II, as its subject.[citation needed] Heavily inspired by board games, the game was played on a hexagonal grid and included such features as a supply, terrain and weather system.

Reception[edit]

A 1993 Computer Gaming World survey of wargames gave Tigers in the Snow one star out of five, stating that its primitive graphics, play mechanics, and user interface "have been superseded by more recent efforts".[1]
