Description of Centurion: Defender of Rome

An entertaining game with bits of adventure elements (for example, at some point you'll get to meet Cleopatra and try to-- erm-- win her favor), this game is reminiscent of the old Cinemaware classic Defender of the Crown for its strong emphasis on fun over historical realism. (Not surprisingly, since it's designed by the same designer, ex-Cinemaware Kellyn Beck).

As official of the Roman Empire, you must manage armies, calm rebellious citizens, and conquer neighboring countries. Rome wasn't built in a day, but win enough chariot races, and you might be able to do it in a matter of weeks ;) Two thumbs up!

Scipio, that part is an easter egg. It will never show up cause there is no code that push the text to the screen.
It was probably a joke of the developers. It doesn't makes any sense in-game, actually.

Guys, this issue has been cursing me for almost 20 years, please help!!!!!!!
1. open up OVL0.OVL with windows notepad or any text editor
2. search "Gaul"
3. the third reference is "Gaul was divided into three parts... No, four parts. One indomitable village still held out against the Roman invaders", like the story of Asterix and Obelix!!!!
Did anybody ever manage to let such sentence appear? I tried thousands of times with alliances, rebellions, re-conquests etc., but no success with those Gauls.....

I'm not sure if it dosn't brake any taboo, but if anyone has any trouble runing old games... Just google DosBOX. It's old and has some isues, but i've never found anything better. Never had to.

This game is excellent. Even now it captures my attention. There are few games like it. I may try out some of the harder difficulty settings, since I always played as Galley Slave as a kid.

This was a fascinating wargame I recall.. with the strategy of what formation to use for your troops, it was like a puzzle as well as a war game.

A simple but brilliant game, battles represent an earl total war format. holding Gladiator games and chariot racing is very addictive too. I hhave had many happy hours playing this. Thanks My Abandonware!!
