Grepolis is a browser-based Multiplayer online strategy game inspired by ancient Greek mythology, which is the basis of the keynote and storyline. As to the name of Grepolis, it is a combination of Greek and Polis (which means town in German) which make it explicit that the main content of this game is concerning empire building and strategy applying in warfare. DotMMO has tested the game and made an experience review.

Overview:

Greece is an engaging nation where rich civilization and grand warfare are bonded together, a fascinating fuse best illustrated by myriads of Greek mythology depicting grand wars among gods, heroes, and nations. And here in Grepolis one can expect to trace the footprints of ancient gods and know better about Greek myths while immersing in gameplay.

In Grepolis, players will choose their starting points out of the four locations known as Northwest, Northeast, Southwest and Southeast of a Greek island. After that, the first task for players to take is to build a polis, a small town which will be expanded later with players’ level up. As in similar city-building games, resources are the fundamental and primary basis for city expansion.

Four types of resources are needed in this game, including wood, stone, silver coin and divine favor. While the former three are common and can be gained through lumberjack, quarry and silver mine, the last rarity must be won by building mystical pantheon and worshipping one God chosen from Athena, Poseidon and Zeus. Besides, resources can also be gained through raiding or demanding tributes from neighboring farm villages. Since resources are important and hard-earned, it is equally important to keep eyes open to protect the fruit. To that end, players can build warehouse to store them and meanwhile recruit and train defensive troops to guard them from raids and attacks.

With sufficient resources, players can consider to expand their town, adding more practical architectures and recruiting new personnel to assist in governance and administration. For instance, administrators are needed to help in civil issues of the empire; merchants can boost trade and resource production; commanders and captains will be in charge of land and sea forces respectively; and priestesses are indispensable ties between the empire and gods’ favor.

While the nations are strong enough to develop overseas colonies, players can decide to take military actions single-handedly or with alliance. And in each battle, players need to apply tactics to dispatch the most suitable formation made up by several or all of the following units: archers, slingers, hoplites, cavalry and catapults.

Although the storyline is commonplace, players can be confident in the playability and quality of this game. Just to think that there are more than 20,000 islands for players to explore!

    since they updated Grepolis it is crap. It is full of bugs and doesnt work. they were so eager to release it they forgot to test it. If you spent an hour on their i doubt that you would get anything done.

    can anyone tell me how to contact innogames support? i can't reset my password for my account. without account you can't get to support! errrrrrrrrrr

  17. Wolfheart121 says:

    Idea: Instead of moaning and groaning about the update when there is about a 0% chance it will be restored, find a new game or keep playing. Just suck it up, princesses. I bet my buttons that if it goes you will then be saying '' Please come back! '' So be generous and be grateful the game is actually there!

    On a polite note, have a great day.

  18. henry says:

    The problem with Grepolis is that it requires one to think. This eliminates most who play online games

  19. B:FAB says:

    No Henry. The problem with Grepolis is that it requires one to spend A: Money and B: an inordinate amount of time, which is C: ultimately unfulfilling and meaningless. The mechanics of the game are so simplistic that a 10-year-old can grasp them within hours of first playing the game. I created 3 or 4 spreadsheets which TOTALLY laid out the whole mechanics of the game (e.g. resource farming, troop capabilities and sea combat travel times) and did so in an average of 20mins per mechanism…. easy peasy! (And I am hardly a rocket-scientist!)

    its crazy the support staff are voluteers from within the grepolis community and are also players
    bans are handed out to players for say a week where you cant log in and you can still be attacked and the info is passed to friends
    i guess inno games have made a substanial saving on their wage bill using voluteers but they are getting what they pay for lol

  22. NoHonorInAscension says:

    I will tell EVERYONE to AVOID this scam! The way to win in Grepolis (as I have just learned in US:Alpha), is merely to file a complaint against a competitor you can defeat and have them removed. Before you say it, NO, I was on the side that removed a player, and was NOT the player removed. After a long struggle for almost a year, the final weeks of the game arrived, and we could make no headway. A leader in our group, knew how the game was, and that the mods were arrogant bullies, that answer to no one (hell, appeals on bans are handled by the same one who bans players…talk about absurd, so much for impartial), they then had us file rediculous complaints that were manufactured and I thought totally transparent. Apparantly not, as several agreed and did as told. The player was removed almost immediately, and i was shocked! Of course, after losing this player, others fled, and some outright quit. Either way they were the only competition, and after a lot of people spent a year playing, and a lot of money, EVERYONE was affected by this. That group folded, and now we sit with nothing to do, and the finale still hasnt started! After thinking about this, I then quit, as that is not what i signed up for! The ONLY competition that existed when i left was everyone trying to get everyone else banned from game. REVOLTING! INNO has created an enviornment through bad game moderation, bad support design and believing that the ban is the best way to handle anyone who speaks or thinks, that I want no part of!
