Even casual gamers will likely find this too simplistic and dull to be of interest
There are, no doubt, games of all types on the Switch, ranging in genres or levels of difficulty, but I can’t say I’ve ever played anything quite like Treasures of the Roman Empire… and it turns out that’s been a good thing. Feeling like it plays somewhere between a very simplistic point-and-click adventure and a hidden object game your goal in each scene will be to collect a few gems or coins or other items within a certain number of attempts. In some cases simply clicking on the right thing or person will give you your reward outright, but the further you go the more there’ll tend to be a series of actions that will need to take place for you to claim the reward. The problem is that it’s simply not very engaging, interesting, or rewarding and the generally clunky feel of it all, even with the bar having seemingly been set very low, makes it a challenge for me to identify anyone who would find this remotely worth their time.
