Grepolis is a F2P Browser MMO game. Build an empire is Ancient Greece, drawing on the powers of the Greek Gods and recruiting ancient Heroes to help boost your economy, strengthen your military and help your imperialistic efforts in Grepolis, a MMORTS by InnoGames, developer of Forge of Empires and Elvenar.
The game offers combat both at land and at sea, with recruitable units such as a Pegasus or a Hydra to help work towards your acts of conquest and colonization. One of the game’s strong points is its multi-city management benefits, which require careful gameplay at great advantage; players with access to multiple cities have access to multiple academies, allowing for extra research points and technology.
Each city can also pray to different Gods, allowing players access to more unique deity-bestowed units. Beyond those features, the game is fairly straightforward for MMORTS games, consisting of building upgrade timers, resource and unit management, and finally dealing with the game’s grating desire for players to purchase premium currency.
