The Rise & Rule of Ancient Empires is a 1996 empire-building strategy game produced by Sierra On-Line. In it, the player is able to choose from six races: the Celts, Egyptians, Chinese, Greeks, Indians, and Akkadians. Much of the focus of the game was building cities and armies. Each city had several buildings that could be upgraded, including a temple, a barracks, and a wall. Like the Civilization franchise, each city produced military units that would take turns exploring the map.
