Rule the cradle of civilization from your iPhone

Slitherine is pleased to announce the release of HISTORY™ Egypt Engineering an Empire. The game, which will also appear on the PSP Minis later this month, is the first in a series of turn-based strategy games based on the HISTORY™ TV series "Engineering an Empire". Information on the game can be found on the dedicated page of the iTunes store.

 

HISTORY™ Egypt Engineering an Empire allows players to build their own empire from its foundations to the height of its power. Acting as the leader of a territory from the Egyptian Empire, players manage all aspects of its rise, from economic growth to political power, the development of armies, and expansion into other regions by war and diplomacy.

 

Empires are controlled from three main views: the Campaign Map shows the entire game world, including mountains, forests, coastlines, oceans, rivers, cites, and armies. The City Map gives players an overview of the structure and role of a city within the empire, and provides a basis for economic decisions. The Battle Map is to be used when diplomacy has run its course or when a city is being attacked, resulting in turn-based combat.

 

The game is graphically rich with fast paced addictive gameplay. It is ideal for newcomers to the turn based strategy game genre.

 

Features

·         City development with over 50 buildings to construct

·         Army management with more than 25 unit types to recruit

·         Each nation has its own unique units and buildings

·         9 historic campaigns with each with different objectives

·         Diplomacy, wars, peace and tributes: use your skills to fight your enemies or make other countries your friends

    Tigers on the Hunt first DLC announced! Welcome to Kursk!

    Tuesday, January 10, 2017

    On July 1943, the German war machine had the chance to deal a mortal blow to the Red Army. After the defeat at Stalingrad, it was necessary to regain the initiative and secure the Eastern front. For this purpose, the German High Command massed a huge quantity of Panthers and Tigers tanks in proximity of the Kursk salient, hoping to destroy the bulk of the Russian forces in this area.

    But the Soviets, knowing in advance the Hitler’s plan, created over 190 miles of depth defense to stop the Panzerwaffe and they moved their armored forces in reserve for the counter-attack.

    The largest tank battle of the entire Second World War was about to commence…
