Follow in the footsteps of Alexander the Great, Odysseus, or Helen of Troy. This browser game features a stunning ancient setting and many exciting adventures...
Like its predecessors Tribal Wars and The West, Grepolis transports players into an ancient, historical setting with its amazing graphics and an appealing concept. The strategy and building game is set in ancient Greece, reflecting the extremely dynamic and progressive time. You are surrounded by ancient mythology, progressive thinkers, and philosophers. Don't underestimate the ever-recurring wars of the time however. With great thinkers come great quarrels.
In Grepolis, you begin your adventure on a picturesque Greek island. Here, your first task is to establish a polis (Greek for "city", which makes the title of the game suddenly make sense, right?). As in other building games, the main focus is on expansion. Your every decision should result in making your settlement grow and flourish. Which strategy you choose is up to you alone. For example, gain control of your own island first or attack resident players. Go out to explore new islands right away or take the diplomatic route by forming alliances with your neighbors. Grepolis offers extensive opportunities for each tactic.
Each game world consists of approximately 20,000 islands - the perfect base for fierce fights on solid ground and breathtaking battles on the high seas. Therefore, a balance between ground forces and powerful fleets is an advantage in Grepolis.
Of course, the mythical world of gods is also a major part of ancient Greece. In Grepolis you meet divine entities such as Zeus, Poseidon and Athena. You should make sure to always pay special homage to the god that blesses you with advantages and strength.
In Grepolis, there are various research institutions which give you the opportunity to explore a variety of technology levels. After all, stagnant technology results in a stagnant world. Do your best to become the most successful Greek leader the ancient world has ever seen.
