Spartan allows you to lead the nation of Sparta to victory in some of the ancient world’s greatest battles.  See the military strength and of a small nation grow and flourish as you battle to unite Greece. Control a vast empire and build wonders such as the Acropolis, the Oracle, and The Colossus.  Best of all it is 100% compatible with its sequel, Gates of Troy allowing you to combine these two games into one.  The Persians are coming… Will Sparta be ready?
