    Действие игры разворачивается в III веке до н.э., во времена первой Пунической войны. Несмотря на поддержку многотысячной армии наемников, Карфаген готов пасть под натиском Римских легионов. Войскам, воевавшим на стороне карфагенян, надоело ждать обещанного вознаграждения, и они осадили город.

    Саламмбо, дочь командующего войсками Карфагена и верховная жрица богини Танит, влюблена в Мато, предводителя восставших, и просит беглого раба Спендия доставить ему священную статуэтку.

    Вы окунетесь в дикий и чарующий мир Востока, мир кровавых войн и интриг. Спендию предстоит принять активное участие в борьбе наемников и защитников Карфагена, заполучить долгожданную свободу и власть, а также помочь двум влюбленным.

    WILL CARTHAGE BE DESTROYED?

    In 264 BC, Hannibal's proud city has just been overrun by its rival Rome in the first Punic war.

    Tired of waiting to be paid, the mercenaries who fought for Carthage against Rome revolted and laid siege to the city.

    In the very heart of the disruptions and massacres, Salammbo, the daughter of the Shophet Hamilcar, commander of the Carthaginian forces, falls in love with the chief of the rebels, Matho, who is leading the war against the city.

    Portraying Spendius, an escaped slave and companion of Matho, the player will discover the fantastic history of these mercenaries who fought against Carthage. Spendius is a survivor and an opportunist more than a conqueror. He is a man who stays in the shadows, much more suited to slipping in the night into an enemy city than confronting an enemy face to face...

    To save his life, he will have to encourage this war and try to take advantage of the disturbances to gain power, fortune and perhaps the love of the beautiful Salammbo...
