The Battle of Hastings

Author File Description

File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Normal
Minimap:
Updated changes

-Improved morale system
-More penalties for retreating, but more rewards for staying put
-Less interfering animals
-Toned down invasions, now all difficulty levels can be played

Being my second map, the Battle of Hastings is once again another attempt at a large scale battle. No fortifications and lots of troops.

Because the sprite limit is severely strained in these types of battles, please notify me of any bugs that have been found and I will do my best to change them. (ie. knights chasing deer, unmoving troops, etc.)

I was rather shocked to find another superb Hastings map created by Alan Spencer. I used a morale based system very similar to his own and I give him my sincerest congrats for beating me to the idea (by quite a margin). Maybe next time I'll get a more unique map subject...

Change history by playing as the Saxon King Harold Godwinson and defeat the Norman army under Duke William. Are you up to the challenge?

Recommended difficulty is Normal, but beginners can play the game at easy. Experts will find that playing at Hard will severely test the sprite limit so once again, it will be appreciated if I am told about any bugs that occur throughout the game. Please read the guide for the map or some beginners will be sorely disappointed.

This map is well done. The battle of hastings was short and bloody and this map depicts that nicely. The lowland marshy fields are the battleground on this day. The enemy become bogged but are still a lively threat. The shields lined in nice rows arent manned with engineers.

Balance: 3
The map is too easy for the armor you start with on normal difficulty.

Creativity: 5
I love historical maps. Great work on this representation.

Map Design: 4
I took off because the landscape has one big landscape editing tool mistake on the battlefield and could be a little more detailed and "swampy".

Story/Instructions: 4
Good enough for a four and well done overall.

Additional Comments:
This map is worth the download. Just look at the number of downloads so far. GOOD BATTLE!
