Medieval squad based action/strategy game. In Battle Master you get thrown into this medieval environment, seen from above, like a later Ultima game. However, this is not an early RPG, but it's more of an action game, with an accent on squad based tactics. This means that you will have to control an entire set of characters, have them occupy the right positions relative to one another and also , try to have them placed in positions that are better considering their specializations. Thus, an archer will be much better away from the units that would otherwise chop them away with swords. So, on one level is the type of strategy with a rock paper scissors built in frame work. Then, placement of the units in order to get cover and distance, when distance is important, is the other kind of thing that the game gets right. Also, Battle Master is a kind of game that looks great, in spite of its square-ish looks. It's got good textures, and, for a 2D top down game it is very lively animated, which is definitely a great find for a 1990s game.
