Ancient Conquest: Quest for the Golden Fleece is a naval real-time strategy game set in mythical times. The game title is inspired by the ancient Greek myth of Jason and the Argonauts who attempted to retrieve the legendary Golden Fleece. This game is all about the fictional days when heroes like Orpheus and Argus lived, days that the modern world knows from the legendary Greek mythology. The objective of the game is to get the Golden Fleece. To reach the objective, players have to build their navy, the legendary ship Argo, earn money, use the power of highly skilled heroes while exploring natural resources like amber and fish. Featuring heroes like Hercules, Jason, Odysseus and Perseus, Ancient Conquest challenges you to take command of the fleets of Greece or Persia and defeat your opponent on the high seas and land.

To defeat your enemies you will need to learn and employ an ancient magic, upgrade your fleet and weaponry.
