Sam is launched back in time to rid the alien scum from more than 40 levels spread throughout three beautifully rendered, massive new time periods Ancient Rome, Feudal China and legendary Atlantis. For the first time ever, Sam will have access to vehicles to help him mow down the enemies, and of course hell be armed to the teeth with an arsenal that contains old favorites and some high-powered new additions.

Serious Sam Advance introduces even more original adventures for Sam set in Ancient Egypt and Rome.
