The gameplay of Bad North takes place on small procedurally generated islands. During the game, you gather resources and find allies, who help you fight your enemies. Your army can feature varied units, such as archers, knights, and pikemen. To succeed, you have to not only appropriately place your troops on the battlefield, but also to issue them orders in the right moments (they can e.g. jump at their opponents or throw bombs at them). In exchange for protection, more people will join your army, increasing your potential.
