Product Description


Townsmen 6 is a challenging building and strategy game that takes you to eighteenth-century France where you can play your part in the French Revolution. Aristocratic oppression, massive class inequalities, and beheadings by the thousands frame the scene…but before you can conquer the crown, you have a few things to do back in town.

Reign of Work

You'll need soldiers to defeat government corruption, and soldiers need a place to live. Sound simple? It means constructing buildings, catching fish, harvesting fields, fetching water, gathering various natural resources to establish a solid economic cycle and expand your influence, and a few other things. How will you get it all done? Wake up those sleeping Townies, of course, and put them to work.

Mobilize Your Townies

For Townies and Townettes, the division of labor is traditional; it is the eighteenth century, after all. Townies work hard to provide an economic structure and gather power to fight the king while Townettes devote their attention to the general welfare by getting water from the well and gathering food.

While the Townies and Townettes are on hand for employment, they also need a constant supply of food and water, which means more work. To make matters worse, as your town becomes more stable, the Townies get more picky and demanding about their eats. Townies do work for a healthy economy and the more satisfied they are, the faster they can gather and produce. So it's a good idea to keep them employed, well fed, and happy since you need them to be strong for your campaign against the king.

To see how many Townies and Townettes live in your town, click the Town Info screen. Townies will also help you out by displaying various icons above their heads: snoring zzz's if unemployed, fish or other resources they have gained, and a smiley if they're happy.

Build Your Town

After your Townies have collected and produced the necessary materials, you can start building. Whiz-kid Townies can perform university research to help with upgrading buildings and improving functionality. As you complete phases and sub-phases of research, you unlock new building opportunities.

Meanwhile, keep a lookout for surprise events. At any moment you might face a lack of housing, extreme weather conditions, or a merchant visiting the town for some friendly trading. Merchants stay only for a few days, so you'll want well-stocked supplies when they visit. If you don't, you can always put up a marketplace to trade without a merchant.

Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, Life-and-Death Battles, and Other Stuff

Think you're prepared to take on the crown? Start by finding the best way to knock at the gates of Paris and call for the king's head. If your mission succeeds, you'll win action points that can be spent after each level for troop movements, bonus resource changes, and more.

Train your soldiers at military buildings and gather propagandists at coffee houses. Assign soldiers and propagandists to besiege and conquer neutral or royal buildings. But beware the king's wrath: Royal troops will defend their buildings and even attack your institutions, leading to life-and-death battles.

Leave it to Fate

In the Overview Map Mode, you'll toss the coin of fate to see which advantages and disadvantages await you. Depending on how the coin lands, you'll either gain some bonus gold or your opponent gains an additional soldier in an occupied or neutral zone. After the coin toss, you can explore all the different map levels including royal, occupied with hostile soldiers, your own zones, and territories that can be conquered. When you solve a mission, you earn action points that you can spend on distributing soldiers throughout the map, a new fate coin toss, or changing a selected bonus resource.

Join the Revolution

Play Townsmen 6 and enjoy stunning graphics, upbeat music, entertaining sound effects, a map generator that offers infinite replay value, and the option to save your progress and resume play at any time. You can also set various factors such as use of rivers and coasts and the aggressiveness of your war enemy. An extensive tutorial and help functions are also included and Poopsy the pig provides helpful hints along the way. You know your revolutionary spirit wants to join the fray so why wait. The Revolution needs you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, but some bugs October 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
I really have enjoyed this game. I played it almost all the way through in campaign mode multiple times. Lots of hours of gameplay. Interesting and useful upgrades that take a long time to achieve.

Many people have complained about the interface. Certainly it took a few minutes to understand and YES reading the instructions was helpful. Overall after getting used to it, it was pretty easy to use.

There are some persistent bugs that make the game hard to play:
If you save a game in campaign mode you lose half your soldiers at your forts. They are still part of your army but are not in your forts, which means you can build more and more every time you save and load.

Also, on one of the last levels I had a save and load glitch which deleted all of the soldiers on the mission (mine and enemy's) and also the mission goals disappeared and no longer show in the mission list. Thus, I can't complete the mission or campaign. Pretty frustrating

This is a great game and I love it even with the bugs.

5.0 out of 5 stars I absolutely ADORE this game! March 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
And it's not just because I used to teach French! This is a creative, challenging game that starts off very basic. Mastery of the game takes a while - I played it through to the end of the campaign mode at least 5 times before learning enough to conquer ALL the regions (even the optional ones). For 99 cents, it's a fun way to spend some time, and you can play again and again. And if you don't have time to play the game, it will wait for you - for weeks, even.
My best hints: anytime you have a mission where time is not an issue, make the effort to build a university to "ramp up" to the more sophisticated buildings. You will hit a maximum during that time, so don't worry about going too far. Also, building a marketplace makes it so that you can buy and sell even when the merchant isn't there, useful for those regions where time IS a factor.
Amusez-vous bien! (Have lots of fun!)

4.0 out of 5 stars meat problem? October 23, 2011
By Carina
Verified Purchase
This game is fun and addicting. There is a learning curve, like to assign people, you have to click on the respective buildings and subtract or add men based on need - and reassign men elsewhere if you need them on another task. the program doesn't, tell you that, you have to figure it out. Also, I've run into a problem where the people only want meat so there is always a shortage of it - it makes the people unhappy.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to beat the game October 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
Just finished the whole game and also all the optional stages.

Below is couple of tips I used to beat the game. Please dont read if you dont want to get spoiled
1) Sad townie is slow townie. In the beginning of the stage make sure you provide enough housing and clean source of water (well) as FIRST priority.
2) Make sure no townie goes hungry. Feed them fish for 1st lvl townie, pork for 2nd lvl townie, and i heard 3rd lvl townie eats bread
3) Plan ahead where you will put Storage building. Surround the storage building with other building (For example: Woodcutter house, mine and fishing lodge) for quick travel
4) On optional time challenge to get Hammer & Steel (Lorraine), you must have already researched lvl 3 of steel miner and lvl 3 steel refinery. I found this stage the hardest compared other.

How to capture building (the easy way)
1) Trick your opponent that you will capture their barrack the furthest away from your town, you send 1, they will send 2 or 3
2) Send another until the opponent used up their soldier
3) Send extra soldier / propagandist to enemy building. Since enemy soldier all preoccupied, you will capture enemy's building with ease.
4) Return the soldier you sent for distraction. Your soldier will return home safely. No casualty.

This game is filled with bugs on later stages, but I was lucky to be able to go around the issue and complete the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty fun little game October 23, 2011

This game is actually pretty fun. The graphics will not wow you but there is quite a lot to do and it is actually more challenging to make your people happy than it seems. Good time killer for sure.

3.0 out of 5 stars good idea... awful interface October 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
The empire building genre is a favorite of mine. I understand all the concepts of population growth and happiness as well as resource gathering and building. So while this game nails those concepts, the interface makes it almost unplayable. They need to make it more intuitive... It shouldn't be so difficult to do such simple tasks.

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good October 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
A fun, casual RTS; I didn't find the controls difficult, and the resource management is really quite elegant. Four stars because there's no way to turn the music off, as far as I can tell.
