John Tiller Software releases new entry in Napoleonic Battles series

John Tiller Software has announced the release of a new game in their Napoleonic Battles series. Republican Bayonets on the Rhine, the twelfth instalment so far, covers key battles from 1792 – 1800 in the French Revolutionary Wars as France’s military evolved from largely militia based, to the professional force that saw it dominate the continent.

There are twenty-eight historical scenarios included in the game, with over 200 scenario files in the main folder. This accounts for the main battles themselves, but also AI vs. Head to Head versions of each, as well as versions that have 15-minute turns. There are plenty of bonus and campaign scenarios to boot.

A unique feature of the game is the presence of Military Balloons are a controllable unit, with the Battle of Fleurus in 1794 being the first recorded instance of a military aircraft being used to influence the outcome of a battle.

This follows on from 2016’s Campaign Marengo, which we reviewed here.

Republican Bayonets of the Rhine is available for $39.95 direct from the JTS Store, and is a 227 MB download. Compatible with Windows 7, 8 & 10. (And Vista, but we don’t count that.)
