Battles of the Ancient World

Main Game Image

The 'Battles of the Ancient World' game system is a tactical simulation of some of the greatest and most important battles from 1457 B.C. to 378 A.D..  Each scenario features one of these great battles and players may play as either side.  Each unit in the game represents an actual unit that participated in the battle, each with an actual strength between 250 and 1,200 men.  The map represents the actual terrain over which each battle was fought.  The game in the series has been designed to ensure maximum playability and historical accuracy, in that order.  There are over 55 different units across all the missions, ranging from elite Roman Legionaries, to Persian Scythed Chariots.  Each unit has its own unique ability that you need to take advantage of in order to win each battle.
