It has been anticipated for a while now but Gameloft has finally release Age of Sparta for Windows Phone and Windows. The new game puts you in charge of the Greek army as you wage war against Xerxes and the Persians. Using the powers at your disposal and with the help of the Greek Gods, you rebuild your city to get resources and an army to mount your campaign. You can of course also align yourself with other players to form a bigger army and battle rivals.
While the game concept is not unique, Age of Sparta does have some outstanding characters and graphics as you play. As most readers will know, I’m a big fan of Age of Empires Castle Siege and I like these top down, world building type of games. This one fits the bill and brings a unique, historical twist to what could be a tired format for some. Given that Age of Sparta is free, it is worth a try.
