The Barbarians Approach!
Hold the Walls!
From the plains of Carthage to the forests of Britain, from Greece and Persia to Rome herself, experience siege warfare as the ancients knew it.
In Walls of Rome, Mindcraft puts all the devices and techniques of classical times in your hands. Siege towers, battering rams, Greek fire, mighty catapults... Scale the walls with ladders, bombard them with boulders, or tunnel beneath and watch the walls collapse!
You give the orders; your troops carry them out. Command individual soldiers or entire groups. Watch the battle as it unfolds, and pause the action to intervene with new orders. Thrill to victory as you overrun a fortress or drive attackers from its walls!
