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.

Okay, love the game and always have.
But seriously, morale has to be the most ridiculous mechanic of this game.
I lost 6 units, 4 of them with 250+ soldiers in them just because 2 groups of archers were taunting me, which resulted in me losing.
How the fuck does that even make sense? lol

Four years later and it's still a one of a kind. If there's a sequel I suggest more civilizations, mini-games, variety of fields, chat, accounts to keep track of w/l, and a way to punish those that keep quitting out of their matches. Take your death like a man!

I think this is a good game overall just lacking a little in terms of battles. I wish you would make a second game along similar lines of this one.

This game is excellent. Played it awhile ago but only now got around to writing a review.
