Game Info

Ancient Battle: Rome is the first in a series of stunning wargame simulations covering the Ancient Era. Ancient Battle: Rome is yet another classic iOS wargame from Hunted Cow and Hex War, the developers behind the top-selling iOS wargames Tank Battle: North Africa, Civil War: 1863 and Tank Battle: 1944.

In Ancient Battle: Rome you are able to fight the battles between ancient Rome and its many opponents. Each campaign is themed around eight battles contesting a geographical region. The Roman legionary may well be the power unit of the period but all too often they are outnumbered by hordes of barbarians.

The unique game system was designed by a team including a winner of the Ancients competition at the World Wargaming Championships. Designed from the ground up to give a unique wargaming experience on iPhone and iPad, players can use Roman legionaries, elephants, catapults, heavy and light cavalry, archers, slingers, fanatics, chariots and many more unit types to engage in classic battles.

Included in the initial release is 'Caesar’s Campaign in Gaul' culminating in the classic siege of Alesia, and the campaign between Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great. Players can also purchase an additional campaign of the invasion of Brittania with the highlight of Queen Boudicca's demise at the battle of Verulamum.

Upcoming expansions will include the battle for Germany where the Romans lost three legions in the Teutoburger forest, the battles against Mithradates the Great in Pontus, and the infamous Parthia campaign where a whole Roman army perished in the desert. These later campaigns will also add fully armoured cataphracts, light cavalry archers, scythed chariots and the Greek Pike Phalanx to the game system.



Ancient Battle: Rome is due for release on iPhone, iPod and iPad in August 2013!

You can play the opposite side in all the missions (except the tutorial). Normally the Barbarians, but there are also some Roman vs. Roman missions too
