Background

Thousands of years ago there was a city that trained its children for one purpose only. The city was Sparta, the purpose, battle! With the most feared warriors in the known world, Sparta carved itself an empire but soon other cities like Athens and Corinth arose to challenge it, while in the east, the mighty Persians began to wake...Rich in historical detail, Spartan features turn-based gameplay, and calls for clever management of armies and empires.
