About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

Gates Of Troy is a Trojan-themed expansion pack for Slitherine Software's Spartan. Take command of Leonidas and his 300 Spartans against the mighty Persian horde.
Gates of Troy is an epic style turn based strategy game that takes you on a journey through the Trojan Wars, right down to the giant Trojan Horse. Command heroes like Hector and Achilles as you battle through 6 campaigns of ancient warfare. Enjoy the skill and strategy of commanding over 50 different units and 19 different heroes. If that isn’t enough, anyone who owns Spartan will be able to enjoy all their old favorite battles on the new, improved, Gates of Troy engine. If you don’t have Spartan fear not, for Gates of Troy is playable without any previously installed software.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “We are proud to add such a noted game series as Slitherine’s to the Matrix line. Gates of Troy is an addictive simulation for fans of empire building, war strategists, and general gamers alike. It is a truly enticing visual and tactical experience for anyone who enjoys strategy.”
