1066 Walkthrough

If you are a fan of Internet memes, it is quite possible that you have come across Medieval versions of memes, particularly on YTMND. These Medieval depictions of your favorite memes use images taken from the Bayeux Tapestry, an embroidered cloth that depicts the Norman conquest of England in 1066. The strategy game, 1066, puts you in control of an army as you vie for control of England. This strategy game features an artistic style that pays homage to the Bayeux Tapestry, a variety of miniganes, and a multiplayer game mode that allows you to duke (of Normandy, get it?) it out with human opponents online!

Both singleplayer and multiplayer modes are available in 1066. In singleplayer mode, you can play a campaign where you fight to conquer England, or fight in a single skirmish battle. If you are a history enthusiast, you may enjoy the cutscenes before each campaign mission since they contain well-narrated historical facts. You are given codes at the end of each campaign mission which you can enter to continue your progress the net time that you play this strategy game. Multiplayer pits you against another human player. You can choose to fight a random player, or challenge a friend by generating or entering a code to connect with them.

Each battle of 1066 begins with purchasing units. A default army is already selected for you, but you can modify the composition of your troops as long as you stay within budget. Once you take to the field, click and drag icons at the bottom of the screen to put your army in the desired formation. Once you are ready, click the button labeled "Begin Battle". Click on icons to issue orders, then click the "Execute Commands" button to carry out your orders.

Moving your troops into position takes cunning, but the actual fighting in this strategy game is conducted by minigames. When fighting, press the proper arrow key at the correct time (similar to Dance Dance Revolution to do more damage to your enemies. Taunting is a good way to increase your morale and decrease that of your enemy; taunting is done by completing a typing minigame. Successfully launching ranged attacks is probably the most difficult feat in this strategy game. Use your mouse to set the angle, then click and drag to set the power. Release when you are ready to take your shot. It is possible to strike your own units with arrows, so be careful!

If you enjoy strategy games, but like a little bit of casual gameplay thrown in, then 1066 is just the game for you! Ascend to your rightful position as ruler of England in 1066!
