Grepolis: Update implements new tutorial and mobile features

Hamburg, August 30, 2012. Today InnoGames updated its strategy browser game Grepolis, adding new features to the browser version as well as its mobile app for Android, the Grepolis Toolbox. From now on, new players will be introduced to the game by a series of quests in the browser version, providing initial information as well as helpful rewards.

Mobile users of Grepolis can look forward to several improvements as well: From now on the Grepolis Toolbox allows for full access to the game’s alliance forums. Also players can grab their daily bonuses while playing from their mobile device. The toolbox is downloadable for free in the Google Play store, and can be used with any Grepolis account. It provides numerous useful features, like push notification alerts of incoming attacks, plus trade and expansion options.

InnoGames gained initial experience with a Grepolis App by creating a mobile web version of the game, which has been visited about four million times since its launch five months ago. Prior to that, the first native app release of Tribal Wars resulted in 250,000 downloads and 50 million game sessions on iOS and Android.

Grepolis is a strategy game set in ancient Greece. In the free browser-based title, players are tasked with building up a vast metropolis and uniting with other players to establish a powerful military and conquer far away islands. Currently it boasts over 16 million registered users and is playable in 22 languages. Next to Grepolis, games company InnoGames has published major browser game titles like Forge of Empires, Tribal Wars and The West. With more than 80 million registered users, the German company belongs to the biggest developers and publishers of online games.
