Description from the packaging.

You are Hector. A Slave.
The lowest of the low. A dirty, vile, plague-ridden piece of human chattel.

But you have big dreams.

You intend to become the Emperor someday- and woe to the man, beast or God that gets in your way. Immersed in historical (and hysterical) Ancient Rome, you'll explore a world filled with strange lands and stranger people. You'll experience adventure, discovery, danger, and intrigue- and a few good laughs- on your way to the top. To master Rome you'll need some of the best qualities of humanity- and all the worst. Above all you'll need pride, ambition and the willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done.

  • A unique blend of strategy and adventure for fun and danger.
  • Just the right challenge for intermediate gamers and above.
  • Easy point-and-click interface- no keyboard sequences to memorize.
  • Six levels with different landscapes, different plots, different schemes.
  • Each level requires unique skills to solve- much less to survive
  • Dynamic simulation has events and activities happening around you.
  • Great visuals- up to 256 colors, isometric 3D graphics for some views
  • Outstanding sound and music- supports AdLib, Roland and Sound Blaster.
  • Have a real blast- see Vesuvius erupt, up-close and personal.
  • Experience Rome in English, German, French, Spanish or Italian.
  • Control the game with simple mouse clicks. Interact with scores of locals.
  • Go places, meet important people and get into trouble.
  • Map view shown on entire level at once.
  • You'll have good days…
  • And not so good days.
