Hunted Cow’s prodigious output of strategy games for Apple iOS continues with the company’s latest release, Ancient Battle: Rome.
This is the fourth historical strategy title to be published by Hunted Cow for iOS. Developed by strategy experts HexWar, including the winner of the Ancients competition at the World Wargaming Championships . HexWar has previously worked with Hunted Cow to develop Civil War: 1863, Tank Battle: North Africa and Tank Battle: 1944.
Ancient Battle: Rome is a turn-based, hex-based strategy game, which pits the might of imperial Rome against various barbarians, savages and beastly tribes around the ancient world.
The game features unit types including Roman legionaries, elephants, catapults, heavy and light cavalry, archers, slingers, fanatics, chariots and more.
The game features Caesar’s campaign in Gaul, which culminated in the siege of Alesia, as well as the campaign between Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great. Players can also purchase an additional campaign based upon the invasion of Brittania, including the battle of Verulamum at which Queen Boudicca was killed.
With each new title, Hunted Cow keeps adding features to enable greater control, create new ways to play and enable players to learn more about the strategy and tactics used in each battle. Ancient Battle: Rome, includes flank attacks and an entirely new Combat Analysis feature.
Ancient Battle: Rome is OUT NOW for iOS – iPhones, iPads and iPods – priced at USD $3.99 / CAD $3.99 / EUR €3.59 / GBP £2.49 / AUS $4.49, which even a Roman legionary could afford, leaving himself enough cash for a new pair of sandals and a helmet polish.
