The Cyclop Trollypheus destroyed your village, killing everyone in it. Romanius is the last surviving spartan.
This was almost a sequel to Titan Gear. At this point, my programming skills have improved to a point that I was able to implement combat mechanics. When you hold the shield up nothing can hurt you. But funny enough, I didn’t know of a way to check which direction the attack is coming from. So an arrow can hit you in the back while you hold the shield in front and you still won’t take any damage.
I remember that the publisher asked for this fix I just said “it’s impossible”.
I made a whooping $500 from this game, it was a big deal at the time.
There is also Romanius II.
