Romance of Rome (Bigfishgames.com)
Marcus has traveled to Rome to seek adventure and opportunity. Fortunately for him, the Emperor has lost the ancient relics and his offering his daughter’s hand in marriage to whoever can find them. Can Marcus succeed in his quest or will someone else find them before he does?
The story itself is simplistic as are the characters. You have your idealistic hero, your shallow love interest, your evil corrupt senator, your eccentric wise man and a kid filled with dreams. Still, the characters are entertaining as is the story.
The game play is much more fun. You collect items around several locations to earn coins.
If you’re lucky, you can also find them. You use the coins you collect to buy items for Marcus.
You can also do several tasks for the citizens of Rome. After you’re done, you find a relic that leads you one-step closer to your goal.
The story is simplistic but the game is fun. I give it 6 out of 10, something to do when you’re bored.
