Hachette Games and Gigamic announced the upcoming tile placement game Akropolis will be coming to the US on July 1st 2022. "Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!" Gameplay Overview Take on the role of an architect and build your own akropolis in ancient Greece. Try to construct districts of similar buildings and stack them high to increase their value. Add plazas as multipliers for even more points! Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city. The further down the construction site the tile is, the more stone you'll need to pay to take it. Immediately add the tile to your city, either expanding outward or stacking higher.

The Amazing Spider-Man #697 - Danger Zone, Part Three: War of the Goblins Review

Amazing Spider-Man #697 Review


Cover - 5/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 4/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Color/Ink - 5/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening?

Layout - 5/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 5/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?



Verdict - 4.9

- What I think: You get a very interesting cover with this issue, Spider-Man appears to be throwing shiney Pumpkin Bombs and you get the reflection of Hobgoblin (Kingsley) and Hobgoblin (Macendale). The only problem I have had with this run is the art style. Even though it has grown on me and actually can look pretty good with the Hobgoblins, it's just not for me. Overall I enjoyed the issue. It closes the Danger Zone between Spidey, Kingpin, and the two Hobgoblins. During the entire issue your almost certain that Max Modell is going to discover that Peter is Spider-Man. Luckily Pete is quick on his feet and finds ways to convince Max that he has stood in for Spidey before (The Amazing Spider-Man #12 - Unmasked by Dr. Octopus!). We eventually see Spider-Man outwit the Hobgoblins and due to their failure to aquire Norman Osborn's Goblin stash, Kingpin in rage destroys the master Spider-sense jammer he had created. You get to also see a cameo by Harry Osborn and his son, as well Norman seems to have come out of his coma.
