Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games and Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) are excited to announce the upcoming Apple iPad release of one their historical hits Legion!

First in a series of classical wargames from Slitherine and Matrix Games, Legion is a deep turn-based strategy game set in ancient Rome where players build their small nation in to a mighty empire through diplomacy and conquest. Every map, unit and feature from the original is included so players will have the complete experience. Slitherine’s internal development has spent the last 6 months developing a system to allow PC games to be converted to iPad and the technology is now going to be used both for internal projects and made available to external developers. On top of this innovation, Slitherine is also making all the relevant changes to adapt the UI to the touch generation devices, so that each game is identical in content, but improved as an overall experience.

Many other classic games will be coming to iPad from the Slitherine & Matrix line up and from third party development partners. Legion is sure to attract iPad wargamers looking to dip their feet into the expanding world of mobile wargaming and provide the stepping stone to the world of wargaming itself.

Legion features more than 20 nations of the Roman Empire era that can be opponents or allies to the player. A detailed economy has players managing their cities, allocating their workers, controlling production, building fortresses and training armies in their pursuit of victory. Players will also be treated to a game full of historical accuracy, with units, weapons, maps, and scenarios modeled to accurately represent this period of ancient history and warfare. You can also watch massive battles fought out when too armies meet. With three different levels of difficulty, Legion will challenge all wargamers.

So long as the opposing forces are at the outset approximately equal in numbers and moral and there are no flanks to turn, a long struggle for supremacy is inevitable” (General Sir Douglas Haig - British commander)

Praised for its historical accuracy and its capacity to properly cover a huge conflict that involved thousands of men and units, Ageod’s WW1 wargame, To End All Wars, amazed history buffs last summer.
