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.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Gates of Troy is truly an awesome strategy gaming experience. Building a civilization, training an army and then getting to enjoy it march across the battlefield in 1:1 ratio is truly satisfying.”

Gates of Troy is now available for online purchase and the DVD boxed version will be available in two weeks. In Gates of Troy you will lead your nation to victory in the ancient world’s greatest battles. Capture romance and adventure as you work your way to the far off shores of Troy. Control a vast empire and fight epic sized battles on 3D battlefields. With 6 new campaigns and 19 new heroes to come to your aid it will take all the planning in the world to build your cities and conquer your enemies. Greece is in your hands in Gates of Troy!

Gates of Troy retails for $19.99 from the Matrix Games Online Store for the downloadable version. The DVD box version will be $29.99 plus shipping, again, available in two weeks. The game is fully backwards compatible with the previous game Spartan and supports the previous Spartan campaigns and scenarios but does not require Spartan to run.

Iain McNeil at Slitherine Strategies said, “We are happy that Slitherine and Matrix Games could come together on this project to help release Gates of Troy to the US market. We anticipate great success in this and future endeavors.”
