About this game

Pixel Soldiers: Waterloo is a tactical turn based strategy game set during the late Napoleonic Wars.

Become a Napoleonic General and take control of either the British, Prussian or French armies in scenarios starting with Napoleon’s crossing of the frontier into Belgium and ending with the Battle of Waterloo. Easy to play and difficult to master, Pixel Soldiers is a game for wargamers and casual gamers alike.

*Command your armies with ease.

*Difficult to master in-depth strategy.

*Intelligent AI.

*Morale system: Units that take casualties may go into disorder or break and run depending on their morale.

*Includes British, French and Prussian campaigns, with historical scenarios leading up to the battle and culminating with the assault of the Imperial Guard at Waterloo.

*Many different types of units complete with individual uniforms (see the Coldstream Guards, 95th Rifles and Imperial Guard and many more in all their pixel glory!)

Use the terrain to your advantage: Keep vulnerable units behind ridges or hide them in trees. Turn nearby villages and farmhouses into defensive bastions.

Use your artillery for long range fire support or risk placing them near the enemy to use murderous canister shot.

Place your cavalry on the flanks or keep them in reserve for a devastating counter attack.

Use your various Infantry well. The 95th and Kings German Legion Rifles can outmatch any other at long range, whereas the Guardsmen and Imperial Guard are best suited for close range gritty fighting.

Will you push your troops forward and seize the initiative? Or will you set up a defensive line, await reinforcements and let the enemy come to you?

These and many more questions you will need to ask yourself. There are many ways to win the game.

Tap to select a unit. Tap again to move or attack!

Long press on a unit or tap a unit's description to see more information

Pinch zoom in and out of the battle to get a better view.

Long press anywhere to check line of sight.

These are the basic controls to get you started. There is also a tutorial that can be accessed at any time.

I want this game to be as good and as fun as it possibly can be so if you have any questions or ideas let me know! Email me at jollypixelgames@gmail.com

I have had a major issue, specifically in the battle of Waterloo itself in the French Campaign, every time I get to the last turn, the game is just permanently stuck on the AI's turn. I have sat during their turn for a good 5 minutes with nothing happening, and closing the app makes me restart the battle. This is the second time it has happened now. It would be an easy 5 stars if I was not having this trouble. I hope this will be fixed soon so I can give this the review it otherwise deserves.

Own all Pixel Soldier games and this one is is a little different having three sides to play, instead of the customary two. I still think the WWI game is the most fun & well developed. Only problem with Waterloo is I am having a heck of a time winning the British campaign on the final battle. No reinforcements against a massive French force. Anyone have some tips to win? Also, for the dev, when should we expect the next release, can't wait!

Love it!! Fun, nice tactical game. I just think cavalry needs some other benefit to make it more meaningful. You know, cavalry is supposed to engage, and then break off. Perhaps after you order them to fire, they move back a square or two?? The whole point of cavalry units is to harass. Really they're only good for charging artillery, and disordered units. But EVERYTHING is good against those. The cavalry is good for spotting, and quick movements. Perhaps some extra tactic would make them better
