Ancient Empires is game by a company named “The Learning Company”. It’s also an educational platformer game. This does not bode well. There is a redeeming quality however: the educational parts are fairly light, there’s definitely a game to be found inside it. A somewhat mediocre platform/logic game, that’s true, but it’s still a game. Ancient Empires was published in 1990. The game is mainly about ancient empires. Who would have guessed.
