I'm a big fan of strategy games and if you are too, I'd suggest you take a look at Ancient Rome 2 for Windows 8.1 where your task is to build your residential towns and make sure your people are happy. The graphics of this game reminds me of Age of Empire series, but its main missions were quite different and were more related to wars.
The game has 30 missions, and your task is to construct schools, markets, roads, and other things to improve your town. Later, you can also create farms, plant wheat and other food-related items to make sure your people don't starve, as well as improve their households. As the household gets richer, you get more taxes that you can use to improve your city, and once you've completed all the missions, you can create your own villa. The game comes with a save mode as well so you don't have to start over after you close the game.
"Construct entire residential districts for people and improve their well-being by building markets, schools, theaters and other places, and connect them with roads for ease of access. Create warehouses and farms, plant wheat and bake bread, mine clay and manufacture all kinds of crockery. Once you have your manufacturing in place and running, provide your population with food, improving the status of households. Sell the excess of products and make more money. The richer households become with time, the more taxes they pay, thus helping you improve the city. Once you have successfully completed all the missions, you will be able to build your own villa," the app description reads.
Here's a complete list of features the game comes with:
- 30 levels
- Large maps for construction
- Long gameplay
- Build your own villa
- Save mode
- Sandbox for free play
