Informazioni sul gioco

As John Singleton Mosby, one of the Civil War's most interesting and dynamic leaders, you are charged, not with leading vast armies into battle, but with commanding small bands of skirmishers, scouts, and guerilla fighters on opportunistic missions to scout, ambush, steal supplies, and harass a larger and better-armed force of Union soldiers, in this game of turn-based strategy and real-time tactical combat for the PC.

Missions and their objectives are randomized, so you'll need to approach each game differently, carefully planning your strategy for success. You draw your soldiers from local towns, then, through hard-won battlefield experience, transform them into fighting men — scouts, cavalry, rangers, and riflemen. Between battles you'll invest in local towns, so they can serve as field hospitals, stables and munitions caches, helping to keep your forces fit and able to fight, and so that they remain confident and supportive of your ongoing efforts and willingly supply men to fight for your cause - and as the war rages on this becomes increasingly challenging.

Throughout the campaign your progress is tracked, with a full report of your accomplishments provided at its completion. Can you build a name for yourself, just like Mosby?

    Turn-based Confederacy Level with unit and resource management

  • Units live in towns that you can influence to support your goals
  • Availability of units for specific missions is dependent on their town's support for you
  • Your interactions with towns, as well as casualties you send home to them, changes the face of the region
  • Real-time tactical combat missions

  • Enemy unit concentrations and mission objectives are randomized for replayability
  • Focus on reconnaissance and stealth tactics
  • Units under your command vary in terms of base stats as well as "attributes" they earn as they level
  • You choose who to take into combat and within a given mission you must work with those units to complete the mission (there are no unit-spawning buildings that give you replacements in battle)
  • Randomized units that gain specializations over time with experience

  • Emphasis on each unit as a real soldier rather than the expendable, nameless units of a traditional RTS
  • Each campaign starts with a small group of veteran units mixed in with raw recruits whose homes are chosen at random
  • Though most of the units come into the world as raw recruits, your ability as a leader to cultivate them into effective Rangers, Riflemen, Cavalrymen, and Scouts (each of which have their own strengths and weaknesses) will be key to your success

I picked this game up looong ago. About the time it actually came out in 2008. I played it a little but due to lack of interest and most importantly: patience, i left it aside for my WoW-addiction i was feeding back in those days.

It isnt the best game around, thats for sure. But i very recently started playing it again and i approached it differently. Playing it the way the game actually wants to be played, stealthy, slowly, scouting ahead, pulling a few soldiers away and taking the time to save each man in your small unit.
It feels great, sure every battle you do is pretty similar and repetition is one of the major drawbacks but the progression is nice and working towards upgrading each town and getting as much hardenend and seasoned veterans is fun.

dunno if the current €10,- is really worth it, id more likely price it at 7 or 5 considering its 8 years old. But i must say, im really having a blast.

Well designed. Enjoyed the historical accuracy. Easy to grasp the game set-up to play. Tilted Mill did well as this, pity they haven't gone on to more American Civil War themed games.

I recommend buying this game if you dislike actually playing video games and you're willing to pay $2 for watching battle loading screens

This game does get repetitive over time. However, it does provide some nice moments of stealthy and shooty action as one controls a band of Confederate fighters and conducts raids on Union positions. The missions have some variation with randomly generated maps: this allows for a unique experience each time. One also has to keep track of unit skills and differences, and the fact that as units go up in rank they also go up in stats.

One needs to play it safe: you can't let your veteran troops die, but sometimes fresh meat is bound to fall in combat. But since all troops are identical save Mosby and none of them are characterized at all, you might not 'care' about the lives of your men that much.

For an indie game that demonstrates a nice and fitting musical score, and a game about people fighting for the losing or villified side of history, this is a nice game. For a historically accurate or I daresay compelling experience, look elsewhere.

I quite enjoyed this, but I cannot recommend it as the difficulty spikes and the game just feels unfinished overall

A very fun little game i recomend it for beginners in the strategy genre, but even seasoned strategy fans can enjoy the moderate challenge this game provides.

I think it's a fun game if you like the period. Gameplay can be really slow if on foot, but having horses speeds it up a lot. The buffs and upgrades in regions were neat. It's a challenge to save every man in your force, but fun if you take the time.
Maybe it's the Southron in me talking, but it was a refreshing indie game experience.
I look forward to more of Tilted Mill's future releases!

At least I only wasted $2 on this during the Steam sale. That's about its only redeeming feature. Oh that and it's an American Civil War game based on the life of Mosby's Raiders. 4/10

Did the Achievements and was done with it... The game is not bad but don't run good on Modern PCs and it's too troublesome on the gameplay part...

A game that doesn't seem to quite work that well on newer computers. Not too hard on difficulty, and fights seems to revolve on whether your guys manage to hit the enemy first.
Still, could be good practice for micro skills if you decide to go sword only.

A very fun game that makes you feel like a valiant Confederate raiding Union supply lines, some parts feel unfinshed, but you can't blame that on the small company that made it
