Designed from the ground up Ancient Battle: Rome gives a unique wargaming experience. Use Roman legionaries, elephants, catapults, heavy and light cavalry, archers, slingers, fanatics and many other unit types to engage in classic battles.

The game features a total of 63 missions, including 'Caesars campaign in Gaul' culminating in the classic siege of Alesia, and the campaign between Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great, including the battle of Pharsalus.

The new Mac edition includes all the campaigns from the iOS version such as the invasion of Brittania with the highlight of Queen Boudicca's demise at the battle of Verulamum, and Germania with the Roman massacre at Teutoburger Wald.

It also includes the infamous Parthia campaign where a whole Roman army perished in the desert and the Pontic campaign against Mithridates the Great. These later campaigns add fully armoured cataphracts, light and scythed chariots, light cavalry archers and the Greek Pike Phalanx to the game system.

A neat and very nice wargame, not very expensive. The missions are varied and challengeantes, the AI is not bad. The graphics are fine and enjoyable. A good game!

Very nice Game, but they have to review the Story! In the seventh mission in Gaul, they declare that Gergovia is the current Paris, but it is wrong! Is the current Clermont-Ferrand

Keeps you busy for a long while. Find the wide choice of units and the detailed graphic design super. Have all the hexgames of the developers and not yet disappointed. Curious what the next is going to be!

This game does its job well, provides you with simple strategy play, still managing to provide a quite accurate portrait of Caesar's battles. Unities are portrayed quite carefully and manoeuvre respects their character.

Although lap strategy games seem to be slowly dying out, you'll find a really entertaining Tactical Game here. Simply constructed, but high Fun Factor and by the way still interesting Information about Roman Campaigns. Please soon definitely new Campaigns-Addiction Factor!!!

In the same vein as civil war 1863. Fortunately, games like this are developed. This goes back to the level of the hundreds of debilities that appear every week. Unfortunately too few real strategy games appear on the Apple store. Congratulations to the developers anyway and total respect.

I've only played it briefly so far, but I like it very much. A lot of different Units with different Characteristics are a lot of Fun. The Units also defend themselves and the Opponent is not as easily defeated as with Tank Battle. As usual, more card/Missions need to be purchased. The Price is the Game, in my Opinion, worth it.

If we understand that from Tank Battle going through Civil War to here there must be an evolution, there has been in certain aspects: now the terrain counts much more in the strategy; There are a greater number of units with different real capacities; It's a little harder than the previous ones. Up To here very well. But They have not added the excellent function of choosing the formation of some troops that did have Civil War and that in the troops of the Roman Empire is so common! This would enrich the game a lot and his absence has been a step back. Equally Congratulations and keep working, I love your games!
