Official Sparta: War of Empires Trailer
In this free-to-play strategy browser game you have been chosen by King Leonidas to lead your city-state and defend it against the Persian King Xerxes and his army. You need to grow your city and increase its wealth, as well as build your own army to defeat Xerxes and put rival cities in their place.
Raising an Empire
In order to be able to fight and defeat the Persians, you will have to grow a strong and wealthy city-state. This is done by constructing different kinds of necessary buildings like farms, lumberyards and forges, which supply your city with the three main resources in the game: Grain, Timber and Bronze. Those resources feed your increasing population as well as the army you are building. It is, therefore, very important for you to always have enough resources and to keep an eye on what is the right thing to build at a specific time in the game. Keep in mind that the choices you make always have an impact on the development of the game.
Enemies and Allies
Not everyone is an enemy in this game, even though most other cities are rival to yours. But fighting on your own against the Persians and all the other players is quite tough, so you might want to consider joining a coalition or creating one of your own to fight together against Xerxes ́ army. The benefit of having or being a member of a coalition is not only the allied support you get fighting against the Persian enemy, but also the chance to give each other resources and goods, whenever it is needed. Together you can also occupy other cities and become even more powerful Archons, growing strong enough to face and defeat Xerxes. It is all about finding the right strategy at the right time, deciding who to fight and who to make an ally.
