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.

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

Instructions:
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.
-
Archery
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.
-
Combat
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.
-
Taunt
Type the insult as quickly as possible to rally your troops and scare your enemy into submission.
-
Charge
When a unit is charging tap the space-bar as quickly as possible to build up power and smash through your enemy.
-
Morale
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.

Great game

Who knew educational games could be great fun?
Although, it is a bit short, but it is certainly worth your time

awesome game

i really liked it, even though waiting for an online opponent can be tiresome, which of course is no fault of you, the developers. if there is going to be a second part, there are a few things I would recommend, first of which would be: when units start fleeing the battlefield, don't make them straight disappear.for example, if on their way off the battlefield, they should get a morale boost when running into the leader-unit.secondly, commands should be un-do-able. if the sequel is going to be set in later medieval times,make sure that the units are contemporary. last thing: the range of the norman cavalry is too far in comparison with the other units, which gives them a clear advantage on top of their strength...I hope that's constructive enough for the developer's of such a great game!

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.
