Not accurate As a tactical board game style app, it's OK. But it poses as a historical game, and is very inaccurate. There was no Praetorian guard in that time frame, the legionary units don't reflect the maniple system in use at the time. The auxiliary units appear to be post Marian reform, again the wrong period. Perhaps worst of all, cavalry and chariots are too powerful. The Romans relied on infantry as the backbone of their army. Roman cavalry should be fairly ineffective, basically support.
Please rebalance I've played this game for years and loved it. However after the last upgrade I must reevaluate. Simply said, to win stay on the defensive and maybe the enemy will run out of troops. Second, only produce spearmen, the cheapest units on the board ad they are uber. They defeat the best of Rome, chevrons or not around 3 to 1. Fix and I will change my vote.
Addictive Once you figure out the couple of rules, this game is highly addictive. Levels are made with attention to detail and gameplay is great - just the right level of difficulty.
Very entertaining The simple, streamlined controls enhance gameplay. Plus, even with the settings set to 'easy' the games AI still gives one enough of a challenge to make things enjoyable. Well done developers.
Game bug: fails to save game progress This has happened a number of times. You lose all game progress in a battle and have to start over. Very annoying and a 101 level glitch. In fristration I am now uninstalling this and the sequel.
Great game. More battles please
