It is interesting for sure that the game got renamed for the English version. Maybe I'll give the even older Caesar a review some day in order to confuse our visitors even more ;)

Re. the news, I doubt a name which has become such a generic term in our culture such as Caesar can be trademarked. In fact, I have played at least one other game before the one from Impressions which had the same title already.


Make another "Alien" movie, huh? As for this other predecessor - well, if it was that obscure, it was probably a little too amateurish to begin with and there was no question of copyright at that point. Therefore, I see no crime if someone took the title a little bit further. But downgrading it and causing confusion? I think the Impressions product is fairly known (at least part two of it which tugs the prequel just as far) to give it so little credit.

Cheer up! Remember the less you have, the more there is to get.

This game is the English version of the video game Caesar. It is a digital representation of the "Risk" board game: the playing times are a bit long but the dynamics of the game are very clear and simple especially to those who already know "Risk".

This nice shareware game is not related to Impressions' [game]Caesar[/game], but the board game classic Risk. So you're supposed to conquer the world once again. The secret of the board game's success: It is very simple. Similar board games are just not this intuitive, they cannot be finished in a socially acceptable amount of time. Sometimes, they use scary, non-standard dice. And so on and so forth.
