A surprisingly complex simple little game where you build and conquer in a grid based world and wrecks it.
Not much is left after you and the other warring companies are done.

The Multiplayer player base is unfortunately rarely very much alive, bring a few friends with you and this is awesome.

Greed corp is a fun little RTS. Its a little unsophisticated (If you're crazy about Starcraft, I say stick to Starcraft) but for someone a little more casual like me who feels daunted by the depth of SC but still wants to play an RTS, this is it.

The best part about the game is the slowly fragmented and shrinking land, which adds a cool level of movement strategy to it. I'd say its worth the full price.

Some neat gameplay mechanics, but, honestly, it wasn't my kind of thing. The pacing is pretty slow and the tutorial is laboriously long (I spent more than half my time in the tutorial), resulting in a slow game with an overabundance of functionality all thrown at you at the same time.

This game is amazing! When it comes to campaign or PvP, you'll have to think twice (or maybe thrice) before making any move. Every single thing you do can change the entire game within a split second. So if you like challenging games and puzzles, this is a great game for you.

A good little turn-based strategy, almost like a board game.
But it's incredibly hard (at least for me), even on the first maps it seems that the computer always makes the perfect step, and if you make one mistake you lost. After getting to the second world I gave up, could not collect enough points to go further.
It's a nice game for hardcore strategy gamers who like to suffer.

Greed Corp is a fun game that just allows you to challenge your strategy skills and outdo other players while, basically, buidling an empire over some land. Not thrilling, but it kills time. Definitely worth a checking out.

Greed Corp is a turn-based strategy game that you can play either singleplayer, vs up to three pcs, or multiplayer. The story is a basic one for each of the four playable groups; however, their differences in-game are graphical only. The full story took me around twelve or so hours to complete.

Greed Corp uses a hexagon-tile battlefield in which you can use the land in order to gain more money to buy units and buildings. However, the more you use the land to gain money, the more it deteriorates and disappears completely. It is a delicate balance between building units to conquer land and kill enemy units, using the land for money before your opponents do, and conserving the strength and number of tiles in your control. The win condition is to be the last player left standing.

I greatly enjoyed this game and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a turn-based strategy game. Learning how to play the game is fairly easy, but there is definitely strategy to be had in this game.

A fantastic indie game with a moral that, though prevalent throughout the campaign, doesn't overshadow the wonderful mechanics of the game itself. The game is focused around a world made up of tall hexagon-shaped pillars which stand in the middle of a massive ocean. The various factions which occupy the world have finally begun to reach the bottom of the seemingly endless supply of resources in the ground and their constant drilling and mining has caused large portions of the world to simply collapse into the ocean. The turn-based mechanics are easy to grasp and are complex enough to let even veterans of such games enjoy the fun. The graphics quality is fantastic with a low setting capable of running on very low end machines. The game does possess a significant amount of replayability thanks to the multiplayer mode although the single player campaign is reasonably fun the second time around.

You know, even with how obscure this game is, it's possibly one of the best strategy games I have ever played just for the pure sake that it's so simple, but so mentally, strategically challenging. Territory only lasts for so long, since you harvest money from the land, and that land is slowly destroyed because of it. The war can only go for so long before somebody's section crumbles and falls down into the endless abyss of clouds.

How horrible of me, to have forgotten to write a review for this game. Go and play it.

Greed Corp is a great example of a game with a few, simple mechanics that is easy to learn and harder to master. I liked most things about it - the low count of units and associated rules, the gameplay mechanics (especially the collapsing terrain), the visual style. 10/10 will buy for my friends, too.

At first blush, this game seemed like it would be pretty good - but that feeling doesn't hold up over time. While there are 4 different factions in the game, they share the same 4 units. The single player campaign quickly becomes tedious when all battles consist of the same exact strategy, I can imagine this game might be more enjoyable multiplayer, but that aspect is pretty dead.

greed corp is a turn based hex game but different to most strategy games. the difference is its much more simple. but that is what makes it awesome! so simple yet so fun.

the game takes place on some world were either incredibly cute walker like robots or people piloting incredibly cute walker type machines live. the place they live is also so way high up in the sky that it would probably take half an hour to hit the ground if you fell off. and its divided into hexes that you fight over.

the fighting or gameplay is very simple. you can either build a barracks or harvester to start off with. harvesters harvest the floor to make you money but also destroy the floor as they do it. and when a piece of land is destroyed enough it falls down into the clouds taking everything with it.

in other words harvesters can be an effective weapon for destroying your foes land while making you money in the process.

when you build a barracks you can build walkers. walkers can claim 1 hex forward per turn and battle your opponents walkers.

except the battles are little more just basic math as the walkers simply cancel each other out. so who ever has more walkers will win.

and once you claim a hex you can build on it also the more hexes you have the more money you get per turn.

the 2 other things you can build are the air ship and the cannon. the air ship transports all the walkers on one hex across the map and are the only way of getting around late game as nearly everything is broken... most of the time.
the cannon on the other hand is used to shoot a hex. when a hex is shot it moves down one level getting more broken.

it is the same thing as what a harvester does and when a hex losses all of its levels it crumbles into the clouds. cannons also kill 5 walkers so your foes will have less men.

so that's basically how the game goes you harvest stuff break the land while doing it then get cannons and air ships and either try and conquer your opponents land or break it.

also the theme of the game is very nice with the greedy theme being taken very light heartedly and the way fighting works having no actual fighting or blood at all. if I gave this game a ERSB rating it would probably be PG for very mild violence.

as for the real rating I give it a 8/10 and a 9/10 if its on sale for $3 or less. for it being a really good game to play with friends
but maybe not so much with sore losers. it also has a great steampunk style awesome funky soundtrack and last of all great mechanics.

This a small TBS worth due to it's simplicity and effectiveness in its mechanics. It is a Risk styled game, where you control a faction that must destrtoy all enemy factions in a hexagonal tile base map. In order to do thta, players must generate income, done so by placing Harvesters accross the field; the important bit here is that harvesters generate income by smashing the tile where it was placed, in addition to all adjacent tiles; every time a tile is smashed, it lowers it's height, reaching a point where the tile fractures and subsequently collapses - what this means is that, as income is generated, the battlefield gets eventually destroyed, and by the end game, its rather common that only a couple of tiles remain in the whole battlefield.

The game is entirely deterministic - no dice is rolled at all. A duel is resoleved by the size of the attacking force, with the casualties determined by simple substraction (invading force unit count - defending force unit count). Addionally, all maps are perfectly symmetrical. This leaves the game's conflict to be entirely resolved by player's strategy and nothing else. This is easier said than done, however, as the tile destruction inflicted by harvesters (and player-deployed artillery) constantly change the battlefield, your strategy is in an ever constant need for change.

The game lacks a bit of variety, so it can easily become a little repetitive - this is not Chess nor Go in regards to depth. An expande sequel would have been indeed welcome, but this never came to pass. I still recommend it heartily if you are a fan of TBS.

Pre-Release Review
Posted: July 9, 2011
I'm normally not into turn-based strategy games, since the gameplay is slow and there's not a lot of action involved, and this game is no different. If you do like these kind of games, you'll most likely enjoy this one as well. But don't get me wrong, it's not a bad game by any means. It has a certain charm, and the game is easy to play. The towers gameplay aspect is a pretty cool idea. But when it comes to turn-based strategy games I'd rather play Advance Wars. Man, that game just plain rocked ! But that's a story for another time...

I bought this game during the 2014 holiday sale when I had a few bucks left over and nothing else on my wish list. I am very glad I got it now, as opposed to the other prospects I had lined up.

This game plays like Risk, but has some really awesome new mechanics that make the game worth getting. The biggest mechanic is the game's titular use of greed to change the landscape: you can use harvesters to work the land and get money, but ever time you do, the land they stand on is slowly lowered until it collapses. This introduces some seriously awesome strategies in the game; one time I planted a harvester in the middle of an enemy island in order to collapse it and take out everyone on the island. I didn't have to use any of my troops or engage in a time-consuming siege- all I had to do was attack an unprotected square my opponent had left neglected, plant a harvester there, and laugh as the ground literally crumbled under their troops.

This review is getting really long, but let me just tell you this before I finish: GET THIS GAME. It's definitely worth it, and the only things wrong with it aren't even part of the game itself, they're problems with the developer, whom has discontinued supporting the game and thusly Greed Corp's servers are dead.

The campaign is about 10 hours of gameplay, and it's pretty nice. However, the true worth of this game comes from the multiplayer, which can still happen... we always find a way. My only regrets is that this game doesn't have any steam workshop support, and that the developer seems to have done a disappearing act.

Not as bad as it might look, not as good as I thought. Greed Corps just isn't very deep, and once you master the mechanics winning or losing will be more a matter of luck than one would expect from a turn based tactics game. 1 vs 1 matches against the AI are fun, more than that it's just let them fight among themselves and just finish them off. The worst aspect is that the online multiplayer doesn't work. In fact it haven't worked for years.
