As you progress and build and supply more to your city you will unlock more complex puzzles to play with. As well as progressing your city into the next level of prosperity by supplying all the supplies, meat, and gold you need to build up your city.
Build Your Own Empire â€“ Build an empire as you gather resources such as wood, tools, gold and moreâ€”the more you gather, the faster you can build the city from a lowly saw mill and progress to gain access to 20 historical monuments from five eras such as the Arch of Titus, The Temples of Venus and Saturn and eventually the mighty Coliseum.
The game is an interesting puzzle game that is rather addictive, but then again I always love those simple puzzle games.
