Summary: A very nice and enjoyable game that is well made. I thought it was a little too easy but there are so many extras in this game, it's nice to kill time by anyway. Of course there is a Greek God theme, you are clearing puzzles and in turn, building a city - there are tons of various bonuses. This game is similar to Simplz Zoo, except I liked Zoo better as it is much more challenging. Each time you get one of the particular gods to help you, you get to do a mini game.
Summary: This one was a surprise! Adding the city sim to the match 3 made it different and enjoyable! Expanded beyond the usual match-3 sequel, with the variety of play it does not become boring or overwhelming as some sims may be. Good job.
Summary: Game much like the first version so the difficulty isn't great. The same strategies work for Olympia but since I enjoyed playing the first version I also liked this one,. I would definitely replay this game to keep trying to get higher scores.
Summary: I so wish it was a swap 3-match! Didn't know it was a chain 3-match, which I find boring. (Yes, should have read reviews ect but in this case I didn't) Even more boring is group 3-match by the way, which Heroes has not. I wish when they say '3-match' they would state which kind in the game description! I only like swappers. But other then that, very nice, entertaining game so still 4 stars. Just not for me.
Summary: I'm not a match-3 fan at all but greatly enjoyed this game. Of course the developers have a lot to improve (e.g. the graphics of tiles), but they are on the right way mixing an original match-3 with a sim and mini-games. Good job!
Summary: A solid but unspectacular Match-3. Nice graphics and city-building sim. The Match-3 gameplay isn't very challenging, though, and really didn't hold my attention. I also thought the minis didn't add anything to the game.
Summary: I enjoyed the first Heroes of Hellas a lot, finding later levels much more challenging than the run-of-the-mill match-3 game, so I was thrilled to see a sequel. Well, Heroes of Hellas 2: Olympia surpassed my expectations. The game was challenging without being frustrating, although the mini-games were only so-so, hence the four stars. Nevertheless, if you enjoy solid match-3 gameplay, this is one you'll enjoy.
