Empires are controlled from three main views: the Campaign Map shows the entire game world, including mountains, forests, coastlines, oceans, rivers, cites, and armies. The City Map gives players an overview of the structure and role of a city within the empire, and provides a basis for economic decisions. The Battle Map is to be used when diplomacy has run its course or when a city is being attacked, resulting in turn-based combat.
All nations, cities and armies were carefully researched to ensure historical accuracy. The game is accessible for new users, while offering deeper gameplay for expert players.

If you experience any locking up or crashing in the game please reboot your phone before playing. It is because the game pushes your iPhone to the limits. It uses all available memory and some other applications do not free up all the memory as they should, so when the game runs it cannot find enough spare memory. Rebooting your phone should fix any issues.
