In this story game you become a commander from ancient times, leading your brave warriors into the greatest battles in history! Ranging from Ancient China to Carthage, Greece and Rome this story gives the reader the chance to command in over thirty battles in ten different campaigns to see if their decisions can win glory on the battlefield or merely consign themselves to an anonymous grave! The reader will fight alongside some of history's greatest commanders like Alexander the Great, Pyrrhus of Epirus and Bai Qi, the Human Butcher, in their quest to become the greatest general of them all! Let the fight begin! Author's Note: This is the long overdue and far more ambitious sequel The Trojan War, if it proves popular I will follow it with a sequel (or two) based, initially, on the rise and fall of Rome. I hope the reader enjoys the game aspect of this and good luck gaining the highest score possible! The Campaigns are best played in order and I've tried to include a mixture of countries and cultures in the selection of battles but naturally these are just my choices of ones I think might be interesting... :)

The game idea is quite original for the website : a tactical battle simulator. However, in some battles, the choices could be better introduced in the sense where there results can feel a bit random. Overall, great game !

This is a simple game that gives you several options for ancient battles to fight. There's no real strategy to it. You have a thousand men in every battle with no specific type (light infantry, heavy cavalry, ect) You get more points for killing the enemy and lose points for losing men.

Each battle you get to choose where you are going to set your troops in the battle field. That's it. After you set your troops casualties are counted and the battle is over. That's the whole game. The author did a fair job researching the battles, but gives you an extremely vague idea of the battle field.

It's a super simple game, very little to it. The plot here can be found by reading the chapter heading in a history book, and I think that might be what the author did. It's not a bad game by any means, but in my opinion there just isn't enough here to make it a good game.

I like how in some campaigns you will lose more warriors no matter what.
