Sparta may have infinite potential for growth and an apparent abundance of resources, but it still needs a ruler for it to flourish. Now is your time to rule Sparta, and use everything in its disposal to become a world power! Take up arms and lead your warriors to gloriously epic wars, use the products of your raids for the expansion of your city, and train the armies for the ultimate battles in the Mist Caves.

Come up with your own detailed strategy for building Sparta. Invest in your people as much as you invest in training your armies to expand control and influence. Use the troop counter system to lead armies with just the right force in planned invasions. Ensure that the gods are on your side by offering them sacrifices, and level them up occasionally when you have enough pearls.

▲ The easiest way to collect more resources outside your kingdom is to raid nearby cities. Stay ahead of your enemies by conducting active raids.

▲ Start small with your kingdom - build the basics so it will stand with enough foundations, and then move on to more expansions as you make more progress.

▲ Gods that are constantly revered have a higher chance of blessing your raids and battles with more chances of winning. Don't forget to make your sacrifices!

Top quality as expected from the developer, but have noticed quite a few bugs like server glitches and not being able to play PvP. Apart from that, great game.

If one puts his efforts wholly into battle, glory and victory may be won. However, in the face of such great adversaries, effort can be defeated by smart moves. In this special strategic adventure that is exactly what you have to do. Dragging and dropping may be the simplest of all battle actions, but remember that placement has everything to do with winning!

The first few levels will not be too hard to conquer but don't let this get to you. At the start of a level, pick an available hero, and then drag it towards the slots below. Tap on the start button to begin the battle, and watch as your heroes battle it out with the enemies. If your placements prove to be effective, you can then move on to greater wars against even greater forces!

▲ You can only use heroes that you can afford. Pro tip: dominate the easier levels to earn more money.

▲ More heroes can be unlocked if you successfully defeat more enemies.

▲ The harder the battle, the smarter your moves have to be.
