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.

awesome

i gave this only an 8 because i beat the game way to fast in single player mode... with only three battles and they only took like 30 min to beat this did not take that much of my time. regardless this in now one of my fav games on newgrounds and i hope that you will continue making more games like this one.

needs work in a few places.... but not bad

good game but lacks in quite a few areas. you cant use any real tactics to speak of save the two formations which dont do nearly as much as they should, and the outflanked thing. it was fristrating setting up an attack to have it fail cuz even thoguh the unit could move htere it would sit there like a retarded duck and nto attack when i wanted it. the archey needs work to. needs an indicator or something, like a line on the mininmap maybe. needs work but not bad overall.

Fair

The concept is good, the result is awesome but there are some other aspects that i don't particularly like. for one, it would be nice to give an indicator to at least the general area of where my arrows will land, and not have you shooting blind. also, when you input the keys for an attack, the scrolling commands seems stiff and unpredictable. but other than that, it's a good game.
