App description: Shell Shock 1864 is a graphic novel inspired gamewith a powerful story based on theSecond Schleswig War at the Danish-German border in 1864.

The grenades have been raining down over the Danish soldiers for over a month. On April 18, the cannons stop and time stands still for a moment - then 10,000 Prussian troops suddenly storm the Danish entrenchments.

Experience the terror and consequences of the war through the eyes of the young soldier, Jamie. To complete the game you must not only save yourself, but also your friend and superior, Smithfield, who has been driven to the verge of madness by the long and gruesome war.

The war places you in difficult dilemmas: Do you choose to stay and fight or do you withdraw? And are you able to save Smithfields life by calming down his bloodlust?

* Two action-packed mini games! Defend the entrenchment by firing cannons at the enemy - and run for your life without stumbling or being caught by the Prussians.

* Music by Mike Sheridan.

* Graphic novel look inspired by Mike Mignola.

Shell Shock 1864 is the first chapter of a long and gruesome story about a war that changed the borders in the 19th century's Europe.

Kinda cool cos you can see how the dev made the game but not exactly what should be happening in a finished product...
Yep same here, sometimes the screen is filled with all sorts of stuff and sometimes the text is half off the screen,
Looks pretty cool though I can imagine its going to be pretty cool when it gets fixed in an update.

Example of what it looks like for me. Below.

I agree. I love the art style and the voice work is pretty cool, too. Hopefully an update fixes things and the devs at least charge for something... Could be a quality product.
