Summary: Cradle of Rome is a decent game that is hampered by some serious presentation and balancing issues. Still, it is a game that anyone can enjoy and is a worthy addition to your DS collection if you don’t already own it for the PC.
Conclusion: A vast array of bonus tools adds even more incentive to continue the game for as long as possible. Unlocking these tools not only makes clearing the board easier, but also increases the opportunity to gather more resources, gold and treasure!
Summary: A vibrant puzzler that offers something more than simply chasing a high score. Die-hard puzzlers and purist traditionalists will perhaps resent the intrusion of the resource gathering and goals but it is a solid, nicely presented addition to the puzzler catalogue.
