Reviews

“Legendary Hoplite seems to have translated its theme in a simple but satisfying way, directly lifting imagery and creatures from Greek mythology and film adaptations. In fact, gameplay is centered on defending a gate in a choke point, so it really does call 300 to mind too.”
TryHardGuides, Anthony Fertino

“Everything I’ve seen so far points to an engaging gameplay loop of taking on increasingly strong opponents, gaining more abilities to help defend against them, and getting powerful loot from each battle.”
The Indie Informer, Jill Grodt

“It’s a fun game where strategic arrangement of your units is key, especially when facing powerful bosses, such as Cerberus, Minotaurs and Hydra”
AlphaBetaGamer, KJ Robertson

About This Game



Play as Dio, a young commander inspired by the old heroes from Greek mythos like Achilles, Hector, and Perseus. He uses spears, swords and shields to slay thousands of monsters attacking the city of Ithaca. Dio has yet to discover his true power with a wide selection of gear to be used, godlike powers to be summoned and entire new armies to be drafted for battle. This is a war for the fate of mankind.

The monsters that will try to breach your defense are many and varied. You'll need to think carefully about combat tactics and power balance, especially when dealing with legendary bosses.


The most important goal is to not let the enemy pass through the gate. Fight against the beasts and legendary tribes from Greek mythology. They will use all their might to break through your ranks and shatter the line of defense.

In battles, you must lead your army and think of the right strategies to face different enemies.





The mundane weapons of the world are not enough to repel the attacks of the mighty monsters. Dio needs the weapons with deadly power, the artifacts blessed by the Gods themselves.
Besides strategically arranging the armies, you'll need to upgrade them through battles to match the stronger and more unusual enemies. The classic skill tree upgrade system combined with the sets of war technique provide the required versatility. Changing them will open up tactical options and let your defenders vanquish the ever-changing monster waves.
Make your own build with a combination of skills and become a powerful adversary for your enemies.





Your enemies are the beasts and legendary races from Greek mythology who conflicted with humans since the dawn of time and have long wanted to exterminate them. The legions of the dead started this war, gathered the army and attacked Ithaca in great numbers. The beasts and monsters from around the region took advantage of the opportunity to advance their forces.
Pay special attention to the bosses. They are creatures of legend that caused much suffering to mankind. Now, they will use their impetuous primordial strength to break through our defenses.
Stop them from destroying our homeland and killing our people at any cost.





The Trojan War is over.
Odysseus, king of Ithaca, became a legend because of his trick with the Trojan horse. Having returned from Troy, Odysseus regained the throne of Ithaca, but peace did not last long...
