When in Rome (Gamehouse.com)

The great warrior, Flavius, succumbs to an injury in battle.  Now he must expand the Roman territories by building new settlements and creating new farms.

You’d think that would be all to the plot but there’s more.  No, it’s not anything deep but it’s certainly unexpected.  Let’s just say that later on through the game you get a Kate and Leopold plot.  I’d love to pick it apart but the Nostalgia Chick did that much better in her review of the movie than I ever could in my review of this game.

The game play is quite simple.  You collect enough resources to construct more buildings and sell to the trader.  The men build while the women gather.  Those of you who read of my reviews would expect me to call sexism, but it was Ancient Rome and, considering their views on traditional gender roles, I’m just going to call realism.

This game is simplistic yet addictive.  I give it 6 out of 10; a great thing to do when you’re bored.
