Grenoble, France, April 07, 2014.

I have come not to make war on the Italians, but to aid the Italians against Rome.” (Hannibal – 24 June 217 BC)

In this new Alea Jacta Est game – Hannibal: Terror of Rome – Ageod ( www.ageod.com) brings back to life the epic clash between two superpowers of the Ancient World: Rome and Carthage. The players will be able to join the armies of the best strategists of the Carthaginian empire like Hamilcar Barca or Hannibal and his elephants in order to break the Roman hegemony on the Mediterranean Sea. Alternatively, they will be able to protect Rome and his frontiers and set up plans to repulse the fearsome Punic threat.

Hannibal: Terror of Rome is a true simulation that puts you in the place of the main commanders of the Ancient World. You’re in charge of building, managing, organizing and maneuvering armies, whilst taking into account the economic, military and political situation. The game is built on the renowned AGE engine and offers a comprehensive level of detail and historical accuracy.

The game features five historical scenarios:

-          The First Illyrian War (230-228 BC) sees Rome opposing the aggressive Illyrian pirates and the Greek cities of the South in the Adriatic Sea. To contain the pirate’s activity, military forces were sent by the Achaean League and even Rome. For the first time the Roman consuls focus on the East.

-          The Cisalpine War (225-222 BC) confronts Rome with a ferocious Celtic tribe. It’s time for revenge as these Gallic warriors sacked Rome in 390 BC.

-          The Second Punic War (219-201 BC) is a major campaign that starts even before the clash between Rome and Carthage; with Roman legions fighting in the Second Illyrian War, and Carthage finishing its conquest of Hispania…

-          Cannae (216-201 BC) begins with panic in the Roman army after its catastrophic defeat at the Battle of Cannae. The scenario starts with the withdrawal of Syracuse, Capua and Taranto from the war in Italy. The situation is critical!

-          Scipio Africanus (211-201 BC) narrates the Spanish campaigns of the best Roman general of the war, and his final fight against Hannibal in Africa.

This is a stand-alone game that does not require the Alea Jacta Est base game to play.
