Description

Rebels & Redcoats recreates the pivotal battles of the American War of Independence. The latest strategy game from Hunted Cow Studios brings the classic Decision Games board game to Mac; and is the first in a series of games to come from this exciting partnership. Take command as either the American colonies or the British Empire and shape the future of a nation, with 10 historical battles.

You will face the same tactical challenges as generals such as George Washington and William Howe, with missions of varying size and objectives, and 24 different combat units. As with previous strategy games from Hunted Cow, every effort has been made to capture the look and feel of the warfare methods, equipment and uniform of the day, and this title is no exception. In these battles players will also find the detailed and accurate maps, orders of battle, and named regiments from the well-loved Decision Games board game.

The hex-based game system features a large variety of infantry, cavalry and artillery units, generals and terrain types. Use your combined forces to outmaneuver, outwit or outshoot your opponent. Victory awaits you, Commander!

  1. Skip It
    by Elias Chapelle, USA - Mar 24th 2015

    'Rebels and Redcoats' is a major disappointment. Like it's sister game 'Peninsular Battles', the game uses a non-intuitive menu interface unlike other simulations from Hunted Cow. Everytime you play you will have to think about what button to select as well as where the active button actually is located. The game buttons themselves aren't much better. The tutorials lack crucial information about the mechanics of the game and are hard to understand even if you are a seasoned player of other Hunted Cow games.The game mechanics are sufficiently like other Hunted Cow products but oddly detached and a bit of a bore. And last of all, if you think 'Peninsular Battles' is overpriced at $10.00, take a look at R&R. PB offers 35 campaigns plus a tutorial; R&R offers 10 campaigns plus a tutorial. R&R is an overpriced letdown.
