The basic gameplay style of this game was inspired by many earlier hexagon based "oldskool" or retro PC strategy games like Fantasy General, Panzer General and Battle for Wesnoth as well as some of the more recent titles, such as Uniwar on mobile devices ... with a little bit of Civilization / Freeciv spirit mixed in. However, the backdrop of the game is set in the ancient Rome, and the game attempts to follow faithfully the known course of the events to the extent that is known to the modern history writing (some liberties have been taken in interpreting the details to make the game more entertaining). The game has some minor RPG like elements such as unit leveling (success in combat leads first to veteran, then to elite status, giving stats improvements), but at its heart it is first and foremost a pure strategy game.
Nearly two millennia before the era of medieval knights and castles of the European middle ages, the first ancient settlers of the Roman tribe founded the city of Rome. As the legends customarily tell, the twin brothers and townsmen Romulus and Remus were the original founders, with Romulus eventually becoming the first king of Rome. From its humble beginnings first as a small village, and then a local kingdom, its destiny was to become a great empire encompassing all coasts of the Mediterranean sea and even beyond. For centuries, his royal majesty the Emperor of Rome was undoubtedly the most powerful man on the Earth, wielding total authority over a large portion of the humankind, until warfare with barbarian hordes and many years of military revolution brought the fallen empire to its end.
The game begins with the Romans landing on southeastern coast of Britannia; You, the player, will lead the Roman army, legion after legion, from a battle to another in the name of the Roman Empire against the local warlords of Britannia. Assault the native realms before they build an alliance of resistance against Rome ... and may the god of war Mars provide defense from the fury and vengeance of your enemies in the battlefield!
