Award Winning Predecessor to Gates of Troy Available Online

Matrix Games and Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) are pleased to announce that Spartan, the classic empire-building and ancient battles game, is now available for purchase as a digital download from the Matrix Games website.

Previously available only as a boxed game, Spartan debuts in the Matrix Games online store for $19.99 as a downloadable title.  With both Spartan and Gates of Troy now available via download, gamers have a new and very affordable way to own this duo of ancient gaming goodness.  Gates of Troy is 100% backwards compatible with the Spartan campaigns and scenarios, giving you the ability to use both to create a single epic story.

 

Spartan features immersive turn-based strategy where economy, civilization, diplomacy and espionage are weapons as powerful as swords and shields.  You build your empire as you see fit, selecting the resources to mine, the knowledge to research, and the enemies to conquer.  Build walls, siege castles, sabotage your enemies, and unite Greece to defeat the advancing Persian horde.

 

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?

Strategic Command Blog Post n1! New Features and Game's Scope

Thursday, June 23, 2016

Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe is the ground-breaking next step in the highly acclaimed Strategic Command series of turn based strategy games.

A Return to Hexes

Our aim with the Strategic Command series is to make attractive, playable and historical games. Our aim for this release is to make a game that will provide one of the best strategic level re-creations of 20th century warfare, while also being a whole lot of fun to play.

The first and possibly biggest decision for us was to return the series to using hexes rather than tiles. There are pros and cons to both, but it was clear that the majority of those who expressed a preference preferred hexes, and we didn't disagree. So hexes are back!

Accessible and Entertaining Historical Games

The concept behind our games is that they should be easy and fun to play, while also being fully immersed in their historical setting.

So combat is quick to carry out, simply click on your units to move/attack. German units can be near Warsaw in no time at all!
