Posted by at 8:34 am on September 4, 2008

The Ancient Roman Empire will rise again when D3Publisher (D3P) brings the well known PC casual games brand Cradle of Rome to Nintendo DS this fall. Players will re-create the legendary city of old using a unique variation of the Match-3 puzzle mechanic to build more than 20 masterpieces of the Ancient Roman architecture. More than 100 mind-bending levels, each with its own puzzle board design, will call for players to use a different strategy each time to build and conquer their way to become Emperor.  

“Cradle of Rome offers the highly addictive puzzle gameplay that fans know and love. It’s easy to pick up and play making it a perfect fit for on-the-go gaming on Nintendo DS,” said Pete Andrew, vice president of product development, D3P. “Players can enjoy Cradle of Rome for a few minutes or for hours at a time and brush-up on Ancient Roman history while they’re at it.”

In Cradle of Rome, players can build more than 20 historical sites from 5 different eras of Ancient Roman architecture by gathering resources such as wood, tools, gold and more by matching rows of 3 or more on the puzzle board and obtaining as many as possible before the time runs out. The more resources players gather, the faster they can build the city from a lowly saw mill and progress to historical monuments such as the Temple of Venus and eventually the mighty Coliseum. Multiple gameplay modes offer various degrees of difficulty and a vast array of bonus tools adds even more incentive to continue the game and eventually become Emperor.

Cradle of Rome is slated to ship to North American retail stores on November 18, 2008  and is currently rated “E” (Everyone – Alcohol Reference) by the ESRB.
