So I just installed this and found out a couple things.Announcement said:Windows 8
Grepolis is keeping up with modern technology. If you are using Windows 8 or thinking about it, you will be able to install Grepolis as a convenient app.
The app is already available in the English, German and French Windows Store.
Firstly, it looks great. Its full screen and runs relatively smooth (better than FireFox, not quite as good as chrome on my PC).
However, there are a few things missing, and I can try to add to this list as I use it further.
One of the strangest things is the absence of a refresh button. Unless I am missing something blatantly obvious, I do not see a way to refresh. We all know there are very minor bugs that require refreshing the screen to fix, and I can't do that unless I log out and back in.
Another thing is when I saw 'App' I assumed it to be a desktop version of the phone app, and that I would get attack notifications. Alas, this is not the case.
I tried to find a way to have multiple worlds open, but this wont work either.
I attempted to keep it on the side and have chrome up at the same time, but all you get is a picture of Zeus. So no real use for that either.
As of right now, I see no real use for it. I can just run chrome in Win 8 mode, or even just in full screen, and it would serve the same purpose.
I do see potential however, and hopefully features will be added as it picks up users
