November 18, 2008


D3Publisher (D3P), a publisher and developer of interactive entertainment software, today announced that Cradle of Rome for Nintendo DS™ has shipped to retail stores across North America. Players will re-create the legendary city of old using a unique variation of the much loved Match-3 puzzle mechanic to build more than 20 masterpieces of the Ancient Roman architecture. With more than 100 mind-bending levels, each with its own puzzle board design, players will use a different strategy each time to build and conquer their way to become Emperor. Cradle of Rome for Nintendo DS is available for the suggested retail price of $19.95.

“Not only is Cradle of Rome the perfect game for gamers-on-the-go, it offers the highly addictive match-3 puzzle gameplay that players of all ages and skill levels will enjoy,” said Alison Quirion, vice president of marketing, North America, D3P. “Cradle of Rome is packed with hours of entertainment and at the low price of $19.95, it’s a must have title this holiday season.”

In Cradle of Rome, players can build more than 20 historical sites from 5 different epochs of Ancient Roman architecture by gathering resources such as wood, tools, gold and more by matching rows of 3 or more on the puzzle board and obtaining as many as possible before the time runs out. The more resources players gather, the faster they can build the city from a basic saw mill and progress to such historical monuments such as the Temple of Venus and eventually the mighty Coliseum. Multiple gameplay modes offer various degrees of difficulty and a vast array of bonus tools adds even more incentive to continue the game and eventually become Emperor.
