Heroes are a new kind of special unit. Each of the eleven Heroes is unique and has specific abilities. To be able to recruit a Hero, players must solve island quests in order to get either coins of war or coins of wisdom. Each hero can be assigned to one city and afterwards used in battle. By investing coins of war or coins of wisdom, heroes can reach new level which will improve their base values and special skills.

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 20 million registered users and is playable in 22 languages.The Grepolis Mobile App has recently been released for iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded for free on the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store. It supports all major features of the browser version and is optimized for mobile screens and touch control.

Next to Grepolis, games company InnoGames has published major browser game titles like  Forge of EmpiresTribal Wars and  The West. With more than 110 million registered users, the German company belongs to the biggest developers and publishers of online games.
