Take command of a regiment of 18th Century line infantry in this short action strategy game.

•Train and manage your soldiers and then march them into battle.
•Fight in ten battles against Emperor Camembert and his cronies.
•Seven different tactics to use from co-ordinated volley fire, to a fierce bayonet charge, or a cowardly tactical retreat!
•Strike a balance between training your soldiers and giving them enough rest so they are fresh for the next battle.
Extremely historically accurate retelling of the Duke of Wensleydale's Parmesan Campaign against Emperor Camembert during the War of the 8 and Two-Thirds Coalition.
•Originally made for ToyBoxJam 3 2022 2nd - 22nd February 2022


More hats.
Overhaul of the graphics, lots of new sprites added to the training screen.
More particle effects.
New music.
Major changes to how bayonet combat works. Bayonet combat is much riskier unless you are in a significantly stronger position than the enemy.


Fixed a crash that could happen after completing the game, the change probably fixes a bunch of other potential showstoppers too.

I - just - really love this game. I don't know maybe it's the super-tall hats, the spot-on perfect background music or more likely it's the one multi-soldier strategy game I can actually play without getting thoroughly confused and muddled in manually controlling each soldier like most of them require.

Marvelous work, @extar. Starred AND ❤️ FAVORITED ! I will definitely be playing this for a-while.

Thanks @dw817! Glad you're enjoying it. I was aiming for something similar to Cannon Fodder but with muskets, so having direct control of one soldier and the rest (literally) following your lead seemed like a good way to go. I'm hoping to do a proper post-jam version to make the UI a bit easier to understand and hopefully stiffen up the AI a bit. :)

i got stuck in a loop on one level where the bayonets were doing no damage and then the game crashed
