Do you want to go back to a time where battles involved elephants instead of tanks, and catapult instead of missiles? Well you’re in luck, as Rise of Rome gives you the chance to do just that – and much more besides.
Available on iOS and Android, Rise of Rome allows you to become the leader of one of three factions. Your choices are Julius Caesar, Scipio Africanus, and Marcus Junius Brutus, with your primary aim being to create a thriving empire.
One of the main threats to achieving this task are the various leaders of rival empires, which you must defeat by earning and developing resources that aid you in battles.
There’s a huge amount of aspects of your army you can customise too, with over 72 different classes of soldier and eight different battle formations to choose from. The game’s ‘corps system’ enables you to create alliances with other lords within your faction as well.
You can download Rise of Rome right now for free on both the App Store [download] and Google Play [download]. An update for the game is also scheduled for October, and will introduce a coliseum in which you’ll be able to earn high-ranking items.
