Mud and Blood: Vietnam

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This game pitch you at the commands of an infantry platoon right in the midle of the viet nam war. This concept follows a RTS pattern (real time strategy). In this game you are commanding an infantry platoon and you will have to secure an old french bunker and hold it as long as you can against waves of viet congs while taking care of your men and logistic details.

The series mud and blood is there since long. I started it long ago with a World War 1 trench simulator back in the flash 4 days. The game was outrageously complex and brutal and scared most of my testers away.

So, I came with a new design later on, mainly to test some RTS algorithms I had in the back of my mind for a while. Mud and blood Vietnam includes a lot of nifty features. Its using a sound engine who's generating footsteps according to which surface is walked on, and it pans each sounds according to the location it should be heard. Mainly if a soldier fires a weapon and he is located to the right you will hear the shot in the right speaker. On the other hand, even if you can't see VCs sometimes, and if you listen carefully, you may hear from where they try to sneak in.

Amongst the crap load of functions in this game each single soldiers is unique, with 7 characteristics, ranks, and kills and name. Also, you can use the radio (if your radio man is still alive) to call air strikes, gunship support, reinforcements and ammo.

Tested and works well under xp.

note, i had to uber compress this babe to meet NG's size limit so if you like the game get the downloadable version; way better sounds, graffics and a score board. (www.urbanprophet.com)



sorry, hated it, couldnt tell who was who, who did what, and when you could, after clicking through every single one of them, they go where you want and die, played solidly for at least an hour and the best i got was 5 men alive when i had control of the compound, and i lost them pretty damn rapidly, sorry, hated it


i liked m and b 2 so i came to number 1 but when i play the dumbass newgrounds pop up makes me unable to see half the screen

Good but not great.

I like taking the offensive which is a big plus side on this game compared to the second mud and blood but the graphics are poor.

Its nice because we have ammo limits and limited radio calls making it a great strategy game. Also with its other attributes I think this game is great but just not better than Mud and Blood 2 my current favorite game.

Nice game!

Wow , I really enjoy this game! It's a really fun and addicting strategy game! I actually like this one as much as the second one , because the second one had some problems in it , but this one is just perfect and also I love games where you get to command your own troops! They are loads of fun! What more can I say?

Frustrating but good

While I loved the idea and the atmoshpere of the game there were flaws in the execution. For example one should be able to band select groups of men, not just the individual, the radio man should be clearer as one never knows where he is until he dies and one cannot call for support. On that note the things called in by the radio should actually arrive rather than being constantly denied. Maybe I didn't wait long enough but the game was so hard I died at the first wave. This is partly my own ineptitude but partly the control system and any lack of warning of an attack. When I was playing I spread my rifle men out on all sides while keeping the men with assault rifles to move to where they were needed. This failed as all four riflemen on the side that was attacked died in 3 seconds without ever seeing an enemy, somewhat ruining my entire defnsive strategy. This level of diificuty need to be toned down just a tad.
Overall an excellent game that needs just these things tweaked to make it playable. I look forward to seeing the sequel in the All Time Top 50!
