Cradle of Persia is the sequel to Cradle of Rome, taking place during the Persian era instead of Ancient Rome. It is a tile-matching game where the tiles have icons of city resources. Matching three or more of these tiles collects them to their respective resources tab. By combining these resources, the player can erect buildings.

To finish a level, the player must break the marbled background before time runs out or lose a life. There are also bonuses that can be collected during the game that will help the player, like lightning bolts that destroy a random amount of tiles.


Cradle of Persia Windows Levels map
Cradle of Persia Windows I made a four-way match. The green items are treasure tokens. They can be used in place of another cell on the board.
Cradle of Persia Windows I used a level 4 dynamite. Level 1 destroys one cell, level 2, five cells, level 3, thirteen cells.
Cradle of Persia Windows New citizens! Because you have matched ten items after building a village, nomads have settled there. Dynamite will charge up faster.
