Rule Over the Fabled City in Poseidon: Master of Atlantis
What is Poseidon: Master of Atlantis?
Build Atlantis your way by building colonies in ancient Europe, Americas, Asia and Africa. Erect monuments and unique buildings to restore the glory of the city. It's basically the same Sim City-like core wrapped in a new shell. For instance, universities, laboratories and bibliothecas replace gymnasiums and podiums. In name and graphics at least as their function remains the same.
As the ruler of Atlantis, you will need to raise cattle and fill the land with orange trees to keep your loyal subjects fed. There are two new industries available for your people, namely, black marble mining and orichalc mining. Both are used for the sanctuaries added in-game. Having a hard time gathering materials? What you can't produce, you can acquire through trade. Master of Atlantis allows you to exchange goods with other civilizations such as Egyptians, Assyrians and Mayans.

Give Tribute to the Gods
For your city to thrive, you will not only need a good head for strategy, you will also want to be favored by the gods. This expansion adds Hera to the pantheon. And, of course, there's Atlas, the Titan whose name is part of the term "Atlantis". Sanctuaries to both gods make use of the newly added materials and Poseidon is given a bigger sanctuary to keep with the theme of the game.
The graphics and sound remain largely unchanged from the base game. Roofs do get a new paint job, switching from red to green, but that's really all that's different. If you enjoyed playing Zeus: Master of Olympus, then don't pass up on this gem. Poseidon: God of Atlantis offers at least 60 hours of additional content. It's not so much that it revolutionizes anything but that it gives you more of what made Zeus so addictive.
