Distinctly marrying the Match-3 puzzle mechanic with an enticing resource management system, Cradle of Rome, based on AWEM's 2007 casual PC game, offers players a satisfyingly addictive gameplay experience.

Welcome to the birth of the Roman Empire where 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.

A vast array of bonus tools adds even more incentive to continue the game for as long as possible. Unlocking these tools not only makes clearing the board easier, but also increases the opportunity to gather more resources, gold and treasure!

"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.”

Key Features:

  • 100 fantastic levels
  • 20 historical sites from five eras to build
  • Combine secret bonus tools to achieve your goals faster
