OH MY GOD ANCIENT EMPIRES!!!! This game was so baddass. I remember playing this on my good old Nokia something like 12 years ago. I can't believe someone remade it.

HOLY CRAP!!! My wish has come true!

Edit: it's just skirmish mode though, I wish it was the full game with the story mode. But I'll take it anyway HA

YEEEEEEEEES! I can't believe it. About a couple months ago I went looking for a way to emulate java games from my flip phone JUST SO I could play Ancient Empires. I still have it on my Motorola V400. And then I found a thread that was for us to list the games we wish would come to iOS. I listed Fahrenheit and Ancient Empires I think... and my dreams are completely coming true.

Thank you for getting the license to port this game. I'm so stoked to download it.

So, if this is just the skirmish mode, will we be able to purchase the story mode eventually through an IAP unlock? My favorite part was definitely the Story Mode.

The story mode is actually there. Look under "Companies" on the main menu (which I suspect is actually supposed to read "Campaign").

The one thing that does seem to be missing is sound. There are blacked-out options for it in the settings menu, so maybe it'll be added in an update. I just can't believe someone still remembers this !

AND my heart just sank. iOS 8.1 or later. For this game. Guess it must have been easier to code that way? But anyway, I will not be downloading or playing this one I guess. Terribly disappointing, as it is one of those classics for me. Well, if I can remember it when I eventually get a new phone, I'll give it a try.

Has it always said "fan game"? Interesting to put that in the title. Was the original a copy of something else?
