Zeus + Poseidon reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Finally, there's the Game on Steam, too. "Ruler of Olympus-Zeus" (or English "Zeus-Master of Olympus" or simply "Zeus + Poseidon" for the Version including Extension "Ruler of Atlantis-Poseidon") is a Single Player City Builder Game, which due to its simple but Still very fun Game principle can convince! The Game is quickly learned, you can build different Greek Cities within Adventures or Sandbox Games and Watch you thrive. The Adventure Scenarios as well as the Gods World torn into the Game are very close to Greek Mythology, which is why you actually learn a lot about it in a playful way. A Special Feature of the Game is that the Inhabitants of the City, especially the various Professions, wander through the Streets and give very informative As well as humorous statements of themselves as soon as one clicks on them. These Statements give you above all Clues as to how the Inhabitants feel, especially what your City lacks. The Core principle of the Game is to Economies. As a direct Resource, there are only Drachmas as a Unit of Money to budget with. Otherwise, the Resources are more locally located: That is, buildings have a certain Functional Radius and are more effective when placed close to each other. So a Grocer needs a close Connection to a Silo, and can only supply a certain Part of the City. The Houses develop Level by Step and over time demand various other Resources, in addition to certain Goods such as Oil and Wine, for example, also Culture, which is characterized by passing Athletes, Actors and Speakers (or in the Expansion also scientists ) distributed in the City. For me, this Game is an absolute Classic, which I regularly play again and love as much as I did on the first Day. It just doesn't get boring. Unfortunately, the Versions that are available as a digital Download are only available in English and graphically the game is at the Level of 2001, so without the Support of 16:9 resolutions and generally very pixelated. However, both deficiencies can be somewhat reinvented by Customer-made Patches, so that you can still enjoy this somewhat emerging classic to a large Extent (see below). I can only recommend it to anyone to try this Game (or the other, very similar Offshoots of the Sierra City Builder Range) once. For me personally, Ruler of Olympus-Zeus is one of the best, if not the best, game ever. It is unimaginable to me why one has only now decided to release the Game on Steam in The first place, or why one has never made more of the great Series. Since the Acquisition of Activision in 2014, this would have been long overdue. Unfortunately, there are no current Games that can even measure themselves with them in an approximate way. Unfortunately, the latest and last Feature of the Series (Ceasar IV, 2006) was very bad due to the Abandonment of the Game Elements defining The series, which is why they were probably buried.
