A step-by-step strategic game about empire building. The game starts in the old Stone Age in 4000 BC. Your tribe begins with a group of settlers and knows nothing about the surrounding area. By discovering new cities and exploring the surroundings, you can encounter hostile barbarians, villages, and other competing cultures.
Battles can take place in cities or in open areas. Forests and mountains provide a defensive advantage. Winning a battle is not always possible. In most cases, the winner receives damage, which reduces movement speed and attack. However, units or squads can be repaired. The loser disappears forever. If multiple heroes are in the same cell that is under attack, the strongest unit fights – if the battle is not in a city or fortress, all units die if defeated. If there are no defensive units left in a city, it is available for capture. Only a few units are able to detect submarines, and air units require refueling in friendly cities.
