A game first developed in 2003 has been updated and put up. The main improvement to Phalanx: The Battle of Marathon, 490 BC was the addition of a ZOOM feature to be able to view the entire battlefield on the screen, a feature all new games have. The game is a quick-play tactical exploration of ancient warfare. Greek units are mainly phalanxes, which have a shock factor (a bonus hit roll) when attacking. Due to fatigue, the shock bonus roll is allowed only once per game.
