In the heart of the ancient Mediterranean, rival cities seek wealth and glory.
The most talented architects of ancient Greece set to work. Dwellings, temples, markets, gardens, barracks… these are just some of the districts that will enable your city to grow and stand out. But your buildings must respect a certain harmony and precise rules if you hope to increase your city’s prestige. Stone remains the sinews of war. Make sure you have enough quarries at your disposal, and don’t forget to build in storeys to lift your city to the heavens.
The game’s strengths for the jury:
– Simple rules, with no exceptions
– Satisfying 3D city-building side
– Nice progression curve
