In the 1066 game you get to control the English, Viking or Norman armies. The aim of the game is to defeat your enemy's army by killing or scaring off as many of them as possible! The game puts you into the thick of the action, giving you direct control over every arrow barrage, cavalry charge and defensive stand. Taunts, chants and the presence of a strong leader will all prove crucial to winning the day.

A multiplayer option also offers the chance to test your mettle against friends.

If the game is running slowly for you, try right clicking and changing the quality to 'medium' or 'low'. This should help improve performance.

For full instructions, click on the 'How to Play' section of the game.
Moving and Attacking the Enemy
Selecting the 'Move' command allows you to select a new position for your unit. The highlighted area indicates your unit's range of movement. Different units can move different distances.
The Battle Unfolds
Once you have selected your commands, hit the 'EXECUTE COMMANDS' button and all the actions are played out in the Battle View. You will need to keep your wits about you, as you will be thrown into different mini-games which will determine the outcome of the round.
Click and drag your mouse on the battlefield to select the power and angle of your archer attack - then let go to rain arrow down on your enemy.
When two opposing units are next to each other, combat will occur. Hit the cursor keys at the right time to inflict brutal damage on your enemy.
Type the insult as quickly as possible to rally your troops and scare your enemy into submission.
When a unit is charging tap the space-bar as quickly as possible to build up power and smash through your enemy.
The morale of your army is incredibly important in the game, so keep a close eye on the ARMY MORALE in the info panel. Keeping your morale high and reducing that of your enemy will be the key to victory.

Nice Game

Even though I thought the taunts were kinda cheesy, the whole game was really fun. I thought the combat was very well handled, although it would have been nice to have like a practice round for archery, but I'm gonna play it again so I guess I can practice some more that way. Multiplayer is a great feature. And you got Ian Holm to narrate? Nice.

Really Amazing.

Best game on newgrounds in my opinion. Really fun for people who like strategy games. The online with friends is cool, the random people online is cool, and the story mode is pretty good. A bit short, but good. The game just feels really high quality and keeps me coming back. I like the history connection too, its not just a random war. Awesome job, I hope to see more. P.S. I didn't get that glitch everyone talks about.

Fun but... im impatent

I honestly think there should be a button to skip all the moving around, i got really tired of waiting for my troops to move after awhile and thats why i didnt even finish the game, but great gameplay and the only glich was that the critics pointed out (hopefully) but im going to give this a 9.6 outa 10 (10 on the thing cause i rounded up), keep it up, cant wait for your next game, remember, impatent people like me dont like to wait soo long for there troops or w/e to move around

i liked it

it was a good idea but waaaay to short.
the charge system was fun and attack system made sense. i really hated the taunt system and the archer controles were pretty head on. however all of it was comnprimised by that short 3 levels.
