Alternate name: Automatic combat

The first video game about Automated battles was released in 1971.

Microprose, Positech Games and tinyBuildGames has published most of these games

This makes strategy games purely strategic, leaving out any and all possibility for tactics.

Common in browser-based strategy wargames.
