Centurion: Defender of Rome is a turn-based strategy game that involves using a combination of force and diplomacy to expand the Roman Empire into nearby provinces. Confront Hadrian, Hannibal, Cleopatra, and other historical figures as you forge alliances or engage in conquest. Combat takes place from an isometric perspective of the battlefield. You will guide your forces in battles on land and at sea, but before you engage the enemy, you must first decide on a single tactic and battle formation. Your opponent will do the same, which initiates the real-time fighting phase, where legions automatically battle each other. You can also issue offensive and defensive orders, which pauses the action, but soldiers may attempt to flee if the legion suffers too many casualties. Raise money for more troops and ships by increasing the tax rate of your acquired provinces, and keep the masses happy by hosting playable chariot races and gladiatorial battles.

The game begins in Ancient Rome in the year 275 BC, placing the player in the sandals of a centurion in the Roman army, at first leading a single legion. The player's ultimate goal is to become a Caesar through a mix of successful military conquests and internal politics of "Bread and Circuses".
