[Beta] Gods of Olympus - Build and Battle Game for iOS






Gods of Olympus is a new build and battle game being developed by Aegis Interactive and Orb Interactive for the iPhone and iPad. We're currently in Closed Beta with Open Beta coming very soon and a release planned for winter 2015.Sign up for our Open Beta

Our vision for this game was for the player to control the gods themselves as they rampage through ancient Greek cities. We imagined the greek gods towering over the battlefield like movie monsters, fighting pitched battles against massive armies of human soldiers. With this idea in mind, we set out to create a mobile experience that felt more like a true RTS, not just a dressed up tower defense game.

SUMMARY
- Full combat control of up to 6 legendary Greek gods with devastating powers
- Real-time cooperative play - help any ally defend their empire or attack another city
- Massive battles where the gods face off against hundreds of combat units
- Build an empire worthy of the gods with no build times
- A game economy that rewards both strong attacking as well as strong defensive play

Thanks for signing up leothelion96, the open beta will have some exciting new changes to our Monument buildings that will give them offensive abilities. We will post some videos of them in action soon. Its a recent change that came from really listening to and observing our closed beta players. We can't wait to hear your feedback as well.

Signed up for open beta -
Love these types of games and it sounds like you have some unique ideas!

Also, if you wanted to let me into the closed beta I'd be happy to bug test.
Just PM me and I'll give you my TestFlight info.

Otherwise, I'll wait for open beta. Excited for this one!

workingman - thanks for the interest. If these are only types of games you play, we can't wait to get your feedback! I think you will be pleased at some of the innovations in the game (this is by no means a clone!). I urge you when you bet into the beta to join an alliance with a large number of members. Our real-time assist is where the game really shines.

KeKhan - Thanks for the sign up. I think you are better off waiting for the open-beta. I promise, you won't have to wait long . And yes, we have some unique ideas but more importantly we took a different approach to how these games are played. For example, aside from the full control of your gods and real-time assiting of alliance members we also have the following:

- No build times. None. Buildings are instant.
- You can sell back your building for a full refund (just costs a few gems) and you can reinvent your city all you want.
- You never lose wealth when someone attacks your city. In fact, we reward you for having a city that defends itself well by giving you treasure based on how much damage your city dealt. So you make money even when you lose.
- You never have to rebuild your troops (in our case, the gods) after a fight. They are always ready to go.
- We made the game in a way that it is always in your best interest to attack as much as possible.
