Caesar IV is a strategy and building game created by Tilted Mill Entertainment. This title keeps the original gameplay mechanics of the previous versions of the saga. It recreates authentic roman cities with a complete and detailed three-dimensional graphic engine. The huge variety of effects and great graphical quality gives to this game a true-to-life realism, showing the might of one of the largest empires in history.
What is really interesting about this game is the realism of buildings. Each one is made as an identical copy of true buildings created in that period of history: the plebeian houses, luxurious patricio’s hamlets, markets, toilets or huge constructions like the world famous Coliseum. Caesar IV has three parts related to different periods of ancient Rome; the Kingdom age, the Republic and “Imperium”. Besides, there are three additional sceneries available: Amida, Cyrene and Corduba.
How to play
Once you download the title, the gameplay starts in the Kingdom age, which works as a tutorial. When you finish this, you are free to start the real campaign. Then, you will be able to choose between military or peaceful missions. Moreover, this game comes with a new level editor, so you will have the possibility of building your own custom sceneries.
When a game starts, all you have is empty scenery, which will be the canvas for your new empire. You have to build houses, markets, farms, and the rest of the buildings to increase the size of your city. After completing those buildings, your little town radically changes and turns into a living city. Roman people will appear and simply live their lives. They perform several daily activities such as going to work. Besides, people are classified according to ancient roman hierarchy; they can be plebeians, equites or mighty patricios, all with their own clothes and characteristic behaviors.
