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

    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!
