Warrior of Rome

aka: Ambition of Caesar
Moby ID: 54541


Warrior of Rome is a strategy game set during the Ancient Roman era. It is shown from a top-down perspective and all units are represented by icons on the square fields of the playing map. The basic gameplay is simple: on each of the four levels there are goals to fulfill, e.g. destroying pirate ships. To do so, the player chooses a unit and gives it the order to move somewhere. When hostile units meet, they fight automatically; the fights are shown in separate windows.

Besides movement, there are also other orders to give to each individual unit, e.g. building a palisade, making a trap, the movement speed and, most importantly, the retreat options. Then a unit automatically flees when a fight does not work out and, after a rest, it regenerates to full strength.
