    Extended description

    In Grammaticus Maximus you will practice the inflections of Latin (verbs and nouns), but packed in a challenging and fun game.

    The game tasks you with defending Rome against advancing barbarians. However, these barbarians come “armed” with a Latin word. By selecting Roman soldiers of the correct inflection you can defeat the barbarians. If you send the wrong legionnaire to a barbarian, your soldier will lose. Barbarians who reach the city will set Rome on fire. If you’re not careful, Rome will burn down and you’ll lose the game. By defeating barbarians you earn pecunia. By offering this to the gods in the temples, you can improve your armies. Speed them up with the help of Mercury, train them faster with the help of Mars, or let Jupiter’s lightning make short work of an advancing barbarian. Keep playing well and the Roman peoples will grant you new upgrades for your triumphal arch in the city.

    In a beautifully designed 3D world and a challenging game setting you’ll forget that you are practicing Latin. But only with your knowledge of Latin grammar can you overcome the barbarians.
