About Judy

As WP's managing 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, a stand-alone expansion to the award-winning Spartan, does not require Spartan to be played, though if you have both, Gates of Troy will allow you to play all the maps from Spartan with the new features from Gates of Troy.

Plan and conquer your way through six new campaigns. Besiege and finally capture the legendary City of Troy, defend the pass at Thermopylae against ever increasing waves of Persian invaders, build an empire across prehistory Greece, face the emerging Roman threat from the west.
