    Help me remember the name of a game.

    ^ Title's pretty self-explanatory, I hope.

    It was an old SEGA game, one of those included in the typical "SEGA GAMES FOR PC!" compilation packs.

    It used an over-the-top view, as if it were a strategy game. You had a bunch of soldiers with different kind of attacks, and you could rescue more on the field, but losing any of them was permanent.

    Each soldier had a simple name. "Wolf", for example. Some had guns, other had swords, crossbows, boomerangs, etc.

    It was weird and hard. But I remember it fondly.

    Any idea?

    Was it originally an arcade game, and had javelin throwers and stuff?

    Haha yes, I think that's it. Used to actually play it in the arcade, it was great.
