An overwhelming sense of foreboding surrounded the Battle of Isandlwana. The mountain itself perched over the battlefield like a lion welcoming its prey. Even the sun ominously ‘turned black’ during the desperate struggle that ensued, experiencing a total eclipse at the height of the onslaught. January 22nd, 1879… the Zulu would call it ‘The Day of the Dead Moon’.

As the battle began, the Zulu would appear to grow out of the earth itself, as some 20,000 warriors hastily took up the ‘Horn’s of the Bull’ formation and readied for the assault. The British stared out over the veldt and into eternity… the camp was surrounded, surrender was not an option, and retreat was impossible. From the ‘Red Soldiers’ the Zulu expected no quarter and would give none in return.  uSuthu!

Zulu Dawn! The Battle of Isandlwana

is an abstracted company level strategy game that puts the player in command of the British 24th Foot or the scores of deadly Zulu Warriors at the Battle of Isandlwana, long regarded as the worst military disaster in British imperial history.

Though a turn based game, its randomized activation system will at times make you feel as though you're playing more of a real time strategy game.  Given any unit  action, enemy reaction can at times be immediate or seem concurrent.

Game Features:

- Scenario Variant Overlays:

 Laager Up!  . Centre Column United  .  kwaJim's Can  Wait
