Description

For a long time, the Romans were happy. They had everything. Wealth, women and health. But one day, they were struck by many catastrophes at once. First their women where gone and then hell broke loose. A drought came and the animals died in agony because of the heat, then swarms of grasshoppers came down from the sky and ate, what was left from the crop and to top it all, the nearby volcano broke out.

With nothing else left to do, the Romans put everything and everyone who was left on ships and sailed away. But still luck wasn't on their side and they soon hit a storm. After the storm was over, no ship was left but a few survivors found themselves on an island, much like their homeland and they began their search for a new home and their woman.

Since this game is a remake of the original The Settlers 2: Veni, Vidi, Vici, the core of the game remains the same. Your goal in the campaign is still to reach the portal in every of the 10 missions. To do so, you've to build a working economic-system to provide for your settlers and to expand your little empire and fight the enemies which are in your way.

Besides the completely new 3D graphics-engine, there are some smaller adjustments to the original gameplay. For example you now get 50% of the resources back when you tear down a building.

There are also 18 maps available in free play mode were you can set your own goals for winning (like conquer 3/4 of the land) or just settle forever. And there's a multiplayer mode for up to 6 players. An easy-to-use-editor is available, too which can also convert old The Settlers 2: Veni, Vidi, Vici-maps to the new format.
