Default Grey Wolf - a browser project.

Happy New Year to all SubSimmers!
I’ve got up the courage to put on the web my small U-Boat project “Grey Wolf”. “Grey Wolf” is the online browser game designed to follow the destiny of an U-boat commander in the Battle for Atlantic. The project is in early development and shows only the basic mechanics.
It is not the U-Boat simulator. Attacks are done schematically and a patrol mission may be completed in about 10 minutes.
The game is based on real U-Boat statistic. At the moment it covers the period from September 1939 to December 1940, but the game is limited for two patrols because of the testing purposes.
The project is full of bugs and lots of work needs to be done, so I need your feedback by email info@uwolf.net, or through the ingame contact form.

Restrictions (!!!):
- works only in Chrome, Opera, doesn't work in Internet Explorer and Firefox;
- the mobile version is avliable (PC version is not working due to the technical works).

Features:
- based on real U-Boat patrol statistics (actually the ships traffic intensity is approximately 25 % higher than statistics data);
- the game puts you in U-boat commander’s shoes and changes your feelings from a great success in the beginning to desperate hope to survive as the war continues;
- you may pass the patrol in a short time. For those who don’t have a year or more to complete the whole campaign.

Plans:
- make patrols and campaigns for 1941-1942 years;
- improve (actually remake) game graphics: interface, models of the ships, effects, etc.:
- make the Kriegsmarine grid;
- add type II, IX, VIIA, VIIB U-Boat models;
- improve crew management and implement dozens of new features.

Default New update

New update:
- patrols for 1939-1940 are ready (feedback after two patrols is needed to continue the campaign);
- captain's statistic page is avaliable (promotions, patrols, biography, fate) - icon with the folder;
- you may save the captain's statistics - see attached screenshots;
- bug report button;
- small fixes.
Career generator is in the early development and is a little buggy.

I therefore look forward to hearing your proposals and views on how to improve the project.

"Unlucky" Georg Decke, lost his first two convoys.

It's a pretty decent game. Not bad for a browser game!

Successfully survived the war.
