Caesar is a historical city-building strategy game designed by David Lester at Impression Games and released originally for the Amiga in 1992. It was later ported to DOS, Atari ST, and Macintosh.
Three sequels, including Caesar II and Caesar III, were made, turning Caesar into a full-blown franchise. It can also be linked to the game Cohort II to help with the battle. Although featuring a setup and gameplay similar to SimCity, Caesar sets itself apart in many ways, adding a vastly different setting, elements of combat, and the fact you are out for an ultimate goal.
Set during the Roman Empire, it is your job to build up your province and city and make your citizens happy. You must ensure they have housing, water, education, entertainment, and multiple other conveniences. You must also create and maintain an army to protect it all. If successful, you can spread your influence to more provinces and eventually become the next emperor. Strategists will feel right at home with this title.
