Heart of Empire: Rome
This game takes you right to the heart of the empire. Build the city of Rome and rule over one of the greatest empires of all time!
Choose from over 100 different buildings. Your growing population, however, doesn?t just need a place to live ? it also needs food and entertainment. If you don?t fulfil your people?s needs, there?ll be a riot! The goods coming in from the provinces must be carefully controlled, and your duties and your power grow in proportion to the amount of political influence you can gain in the senate. The ground-breakingly realistic 3D graphics give you the impression of being right in the middle of things, and you can use the completely controllable camera to zoom in on your citizens. Walk around the ancient streets you?ve created or follow the Romans as they go about their business in the city. You can even watch the traders touting their wares in the bustling markets! And don?t forget to drop in on the chariot races ? who dares wins!
