Cradle of Rome 2 review & giveaway

My two boys love video games. I don’t believe they have ever come across a game that they didn’t like. With the school year starting we have a strict no video game rule during the week to keep the kids focused on school. So during the summer they may go a little overboard in the playing of video games. Normally I am not a fan of it but I went ahead and let loose this summer and let them play to their hearts content.
One of the games my oldest played was Cradle of Rome 2. The big thing for me is that it requires actual thinking. Not just another game that you have to find the villain but where you actually need to use your brain to accomplish the levels. My son is eight and he had no difficulties with the first few levels but did mention that he had some difficulty getting beyond that. He liked the challenge and didn’t give up!
In Cradle of Rome 2 the object of the game is to swap tiles so you have matching tiles of three or more in a row. This is how you build buildings, palaces, cities and empires. The games suggested age range is E for everyone so if you want to steal borrow the game from your kids that’s quite acceptable. I may or may not have done this.

Cradle of Rome 2 challenges players to race against time by swapping tiles in an intense match-3 game. With a 100 levels available, players must earn enough gold and materials to return Rome to its former glory and ascend to the position of Caesar. Providing simple, yet addictive, gameplay on both the 3DS and DS platforms, Cradle of Rome 2 lets players use their earnings to build houses and magnificent palaces as they develop their small settlements into flourishing empires.
