About This Game

With God's help, fight for the glory of Svea Rike!

The king, Carolus XI is dead, the royal castle is in ashes and the people of Sweden are starving to death in the harsh winter. With bloodshed, the enemies of Sweden are now concluding an attack alliance. Russia, Denmark, and Saxony-Poland are waiting to attack the Swedish borders. The new fifteen-year-old King, Carolus XII stands alone with the fate of the kingdom in his hands.

In Great Battles of Carolus XII, the player will experience battles such as:

  • The Battle of Pühhajoggi 1700
  • The Battle of Narva 1700
  • Crossing of the Düna 1701
  • The Battle of Gemauerthof 1705
  • The Battle of Fraustadt 1706
  • The Siege of Veprik 1709

Each battle lasts about 30-180 minutes. The player commands the Swedish army with all regiments that took part historically.

The infantry, cavalry, and artillery of the army deal different amounts of damage to each other. Obstacles such as chevaux de frise protect the defending army from cavalry. Walls and wagons also protect them against artillery and musket fire.

Infantry can, unlike cavalry, walk over any obstacle as long as there aren't any enemies left on the other side. Cavalry can only ride over a few randomly selected obstacles. Infantry can not always melee attack a unit that is protected by wagons. However, they can always fire at these protected units.

Outnumbered units that have suffered heavy losses often surrender. Repeated attacks and encirclements of enemy units are very effective. Watch the tutorial above to learn more about how our game works.

Several updates and new battles will be released for many years to come!
