Come January 1, 2018 it may no longer be possible to buy the game. If you've been waiting to buy a copy, I strongly suggest doing so by year end. For more than a year I've been attempting to arrange a situation where Harpoon Classic (HC) could be sold unbundled. That effort hasn't been successful and time is running out. Negotiations are ongoing but out of my hands at this point while the rights holders make their decision. That decision may not be made by year end which would mean no active publisher of the game and hence no way to buy the game.

The holiday sale is on and the price is cheap!

I bought it today for $15. I used to play it with my 2 year-old daughter on my knee. Every time a missile would hit, she'd say "Bango" so that became the name of the game. 

 

She turns 24 in January.

That is truly excellent. Thanks for sharing.

$15, it would be crazy not too. I wasn't doing $59 with a $25 dollar discount. Finally got it!

I was asked what all comes with the box edition and didn't have a clue does it come with a written manual and disks. I thought I would ask here.

The box only has the cover art and a DVD with the serial number printed on it. Ultimate Edition does not come with a printed manual. If it had, Matrix would have needed an extra-thick DVD jewel case :).

Got mine Friday and the DVD Case was extra think... shame for just a single disk.  You could have put a copy of Red Storm Rising in it.   ;-)

Seems to still be available in Matrix's store and on sale, let's see how long that lasts.
