Default HISTORY™ Egypt Engineering an Empire



Quote:
HISTORY™ Egypt Engineering an Empire allows players to build their own empire from its foundations to the height of its power. Acting as the leader of a territory from the Egyptian Empire, players manage all aspects of its rise, from economic growth to political power, the development of armies, and expansion into other regions by war and diplomacy.

Empires are controlled from three main views: the Campaign Map shows the entire game world, including mountains, forests, coastlines, oceans, rivers, cites, and armies. The City Map gives players an overview of the structure and role of a city within the empire, and provides a basis for economic decisions. The Battle Map is to be used when diplomacy has run its course or when a city is being attacked, resulting in turn-based combat.

All nations, cities and armies were carefully researched to ensure historical accuracy. The game is accessible for new users, while offering deeper gameplay for expert players.

Features
• City development with over 50 buildings to construct
• Army management with more than 25 unit types to recruit
• Each nation has its own unique units and buildings
• 9 historic campaigns with each with different objectives
• Diplomacy, wars, peace and tributes: use your skills to fight your enemies or make other countries your friends
• Hotseat multiplayer battles and campaigns

It is turnbased, so I think it is a mix of Civilization and AOE.

Oh yeah.... Turn-based (Love TBS) ... but hexagonal... *yawns, returns to the ipod touch, picks Rogue planet which is right next to uniwar, wonders for a moment on why is uniwar still there, the Rouge planet splash screen appears & engulfs him into the game*

Somewhat interesting... looks like it has more in common w/ the older Civ games, like CivII. Have to wait for a review tho...

A nice review from PG. I'm finding the game quite hard, but that's probably because I'm not a huge strategy gamer. I got it for the Historical relevance.
