Summary[edit | edit source]
Battalion: Series is a series of turn-based strategy games done by Urbansquall.
There are a total of 6 games in this series, which will be listed below, in order of launch's date.
It's the first game of the series.
It's gameplay is hugely based on Advance Wars from Nintendo. We can say this is Urbansquall's version of Advance Wars.
It's the first multiplayer game of entire series.

After the previous game, Urbansquall made the right decision of leaving the pure style of Nintendo Wars series games to do/make his own variation.
Since this is the start of his own work, don't expect a huge difference since previous games, instead, it has it's own graphics, music and sound style. Game play had a bit of change, but nothing more.
Here we control Northern Federation.

This was a preview of what was coming, like the revamped graphics, the Warmachine unit and so on.
Due to this game's nature, it only has 1 map/mission.
Here we still go with Northern Federation.

Here we continue game' story.
In a perspective of gameplay, almost nothing changed, with the exception of the mix of Classic and Blitz modes from Battalion: Arena (which we will write about on below lines) which can be seen on mission 4's map.
It's time to us control Arkadian' troops.

This time some things changed, like balancing some units' attributes (like attack, hp, modifiers and so on), we had new paid-exclusive units like Lancer Tank and Spider Tank, new paid-exclusive colors, the option to create our maps and upload them if you were a paid member.
This is the second and, until today, as of 06/August/2018, it's the last multiplayer game of the series.

Games Elements[edit | edit source]
There are a load of units, varying between ground/land, sea, air and other types of units. For more information on that, go here: https://kongregate.wikia.com/wiki/Units_of_Battalion_Versions
They let you build units, have in-game money for that and many more. Learn more about them here: https://kongregate.wikia.com/wiki/Battalion:_Arena/Capturable_Base_Units
They bring more interesting strategy elements to the field. They can save your units or destroy them. Take a look for them here: https://kongregate.wikia.com/wiki/Battalion:_Arena/Types_of_Terrains
What is a game without colors, right? And even more: units and buildings colors!

Final Note(s)[edit | edit source]
Those series multiplayer games were a pleasure to play while they lasted.
Single-player games can still be played mainly via Kongregate and other sites which got them from Kongregate.
The future of the entire series is unknown thanks to fact that Flash is officially dead in 2021 and beyond.
It's sad, but we must accept Panayoti Haritatos (who created the Urbansquall enterprise) decision to stop with the development of the series.
Machow8' Special Note
I'm making a traditional turn-based strategy game. It won't officially have anything from this or any other game series. It won't be a kind of spiritual sequence to this or anything like that, so, check my personal devlog on itch.io' site while i'm still creating it: https://machow8.itch.io/project-war/devlog
