Game Description

Go back to the beginning of the historical city of Rome and build it from the ground up, then become the emperor, one level at a time! Match three of a kind of different materials, including wood, tools, and gold. Collect as many of each as you can before time runs out - the faster you go, the faster you can build the city. Start with a lowly saw mill, then work your way up to the Arch of Titus, the Temples of Venus and Saturn, and eventually achieve the Coliseum. Collect bonus tools to clear the board even faster. Take the challenge of 100 different levels, 20 different sites from five eras, and set the pace of your game with multiple difficulty levels!
